Babble Best Kids Jackets of 2011Kids grow out of clothes so quickly it's almost a given that they'll need new items for their wardrobes as the seasons change. To help you out with the winter coat search, we picked the most sensible, stylish, and feature-packed jackets just for kids - some can even work for multiple seasons (if your kid doesn't hit a major growth spurt). Each category includes a range of sizes for boys and girls of all ages, but be sure to check our Readers' Choice section for even more of our favorites. We hope this saves you time on the racks this holiday shopping season! Love your kid's coat and don't see it listed? Tell us about it here! - Michelle Horton

Zara Parka with Checked Waistcoat’s Rankings
- #1 Best Parkas
Girls | Sizes: 4 -12 years
This is, by far, the most stylish parka we’ve found. It’s not quite as warm as other heavy-duty parkas, but it’s perfect for those who love the look, yet aren’t in below-zero territory. Plus, you can unbutton the plaid waistcoat lining the parka, making it the perfect coat to transition into spring.
