Little Street Style: Getting Winteractive with Tristin & Tyler

Little Style Finder is thrilled to have Tiffany, mom of super stylish twins and stars of “Tales from the City,” Tristin & Tyler, share their favorite cold weather wears for this winter season.SONY DSC

As the mom of 9 year-old twins Tristin and Tyler who have a fashion blog and their own web series about saving the planet, we are always out and about in NYC.

If your kids are anything like mine, they still want to play outside when the weather is cold. Are you a parent that bundles the kids up with layers so they look like the  Michelin man, or are you like me who goes for warmth that’s breathable? Well if you want to let your kids move a little, here are my favorite coats this year to let your kids get Winteractive:

Stella McCartney Kids - Stella knows style, and she didn’t stop when it came to kids outerwear. The green bubble jacket and yellow parka on T&T rock.  The boys enjoy donating toys and moving around the city in these coats. What I love about the yellow parka is that it has a warm insert that you can take out if the kids get too hot, but the waterproof material keeps kids dry in the rain. When it comes to carrying backpacks, the bubble jacket is so light that it doesn’t give the boys extra weight to carry, even though it looks heavy.

Mini Rodini – I love the Mini Rodini Puff Jacket. It’s obviously an uber-trendy item, but would you believe it’s comfortable? It really is. The boys do a ton in this jacket. Also, I was so worried about the white part of the jacket getting dirty, but we’ve had it for a while now and it has withstood rain and snow…and it looks pretty awesome.  Do you agree?

Appaman – New York City is HUGE! So we do a ton of walking around. We love Appaman down coats because they don’t feel clunky. There is also something about the fit that makes the coats seem tailor-made. Don’t the jackets seem to fit perfectly?

So what do you think? Do you go for warm and heavy or are you about warm and breathable like me? Which of these coats are your favorite?
