Best Mom & Kid Styles That Lean into the Lavender Trend

We’re loving this season’s It color on boots, coats and accessories. It looks awesome on everyone!

Lavender is having a major moment and we’re here for it. The perfect balance of feminine and fun, the power pastel has a starring role in our winter collection!

If you’re not into wearing it head-to-toe, as seen on the fall/winter runways, try pairing lavender with black to ground the pretty shade and really make it pop. Scroll for our edit of the best lavender pieces for you and your kids.

To lounge in… 

 

For Mom: Tibi Sweatshirt Dress 

Love the slouchy, not sloppy, above-knee cut and a fleecy lining that works for sofa or street.Nordstrom

For Kid: Rockets of Awesome Lavender Leopard Hoodie Dress

A cute and cuddly layer to pair with tights, skinnies or leggings.

To play in…

 

For Mom: SEA Suzu Coat

By far the coolest feature on this coat is that it’s not always a coat: the sleeves snap off so you can also wear it as a vest. Magic.

For Kid: Rockets of Awesome Puffer Jacket with Thermolite

Fleece-lined, with a versatile zip-off hood and hi-low hem, you won’t see a kids’ jacket this cool (and super-warm!) anywhere else.

To party in…

 

For Mom: Eugenia Kim Maryn Headband 

Make it the (luxe leather) cherry atop an already OTT look, or dress up your favorite jeans.

For Kid: Rockets of Awesome Eyelash Solid Sweater

A gorgeously gift-worthy sweater, styled in the softest, fuzzy fabric threaded with sparkle.

To live in…

 

For Mom: Everlane The Day Boot

Minimal styling and a midi heel make these pretty much timeless.

For Kid: Rockets of Awesome Sparkle Galaxy Legging

A super-comfy fall staple with a fun glittery finish (that we hot-melted so none of the sparkle comes off).

The Best Puffer Jackets of the Season for Mom & Kid

We’re so excited to announce that kids’ puffer jackets have landed as part of our brand-new winter collection! Each Rockets of Awesome puffer jacket is super-warm, water-repellent, and won’t make them feel like a marshmallow in motion. Check out our four awesome-sauce styles, plus some incredibly chic match-it Mom versions that’ll make you forget last year’s Amazon coat… 

BEST COLORBLOCK

 

For kids: Rockets of Awesome Puffer Jacket with Thermolite®

Styled in super-wearable neutral tones, but there’s a surprise – the silver is reflective!

For you: Gestuz HelinGZ Quilted Puffer Jacket

This color palette is so cool it almost looks like ombre – another Rockets HQ obsession! Goes great with neutral and earth-toned outfits.

BEST LEOPARD

 

For kids: Rockets of Awesome Puffer Jacket with Thermolite®

Loud enough to make a statement, but versatile enough to go with everything in her closet.

For you: Gap ColdControl Max

Those thick drawcords remind us of a hoodie, which makes this seem even cozier. The print is bold but not so out-there that you couldn’t wear it to the office.

BEST METALLIC

 

For kids: Rockets of Awesome Puffer Jacket with Thermolite®

This year’s It color, lavender, is splashed all over our new winter collection – but we think it looks out-of-this-galaxy-cool in puffer form.

For you: SAM Freestyle Down Puffer Jacket

In case you forgot you’re already a superhero… We’re here for this sophisticated, not-too-shiny trophy jacket, offset with chunky contrast hardware – and thumbholes!

BEST CAMO

 

For kids: Rockets of Awesome Puffer Jacket with Thermolite®

Designed inhouse, our bold camo print will keep him from blending in – and that’s the point. 

For you: Sandy Liang Catan Puffer Jacket

Sandy Liang’s fantasy-fleece jackets were the toast of fashion week. Admittedly a tad pricey, this luxuriously plush, sherpa-backed puffer has the perfect balance of edge and utility for battling the elements on the playground.

Something that feels good…

For mom: Hill House Home Sisi Silk Pillowcase

Softer than soft, in dreamy ice-creamy ombre. Make it a double scoop of awesome with our matching legging.

Something for play…

For mom: Minute Mimosa Sugar Cube Trio 

These sweet little champagne cubes take her party sparkles next-level. For instant mimosas, simply drop a cube into a glass of bubbly, muddle to dissolve, and clink!

The kid-friendly version of Cards Against Humanity – great for parties, sleepovers and family game night.

Something delicious…

For mom: Biscoche Macaroons 

Choose from 6, 12 or 24 macaroons (gluten- and egg-free), in flavors like Caramel, Mango or Tart Cherry. For every box sold, Biscoche donates a meal to someone in need. She can serve them the day-of or save for a moreish brunch treat to delight overnight guests.

For kid: Yum! Candy Making Lab Kit 

An educational way to kill oodles of time, with 16 edible experiments including gummy worms and crystal rock candy.
