As our balmy Aussie summer edges into the cooler months, we’re all hanging out for the change in season where muggy nights finally turn crisp. One of our favourite ways to snuggle into the cooler weather is to update the wardrobe with key pieces like kids' dressing gowns that will keep your children toasty warm at night and bundled up ready to face the day the next morning.

If your little ones have outgrown their dressing gowns since last season, check out our list of the best kids’ dressing gowns for winter, so you can get one step ahead of the cool change and prepare for the icy temperatures ahead.
