WHEN it comes to keeping your kids warm over winter, it pays to layer up.

Then, leaving the house, the kids are all rugged up and when they start to warm up you can peel the layers off as they go… and go… and go.

Pumpkin Patch is not only known for the cutest on-trend styles for tots to pre-teens, but also for its high quality garments.

Manager of the Stockland Rockhampton store, Renata Vea Vea, said Pumpkin Patch had everything you needed to pile on the layers, from underwear through to winter warmers.

"Everything to style your kids up, we've got it," Renata said.

To follow the trends for boys this season, think dressing like dad.

It is all in the layers with hoodies, flannelette shirts, vests and jackets, knitwear and chinos.

Colour schemes are just like State or Origin - all blues and maroons.

When it comes to the girls, it is back to being girly.

Girls are wearing skirts or dresses, warmed up with leggings and teamed with a colourful cardi.

"People like to dress their girls up a lot, and the little girls like it too," she said.

Popular season colours are pink and burgundy with navy and the 60s mod look of black and white with red.

To finish off the look, Renata suggests a pair of good quality comfortable boots.

"Boots are really big."

Look out for bargains in store at Pumpkin Patch for their Big Patch end of season clearance, on now.
