The Ultimate Summer Style Guide for Kids

From trips to the beach to playground playdates and family gatherings, there are near-endless opportunities for summer fun with little ones. But is your child’s closet ready? When it comes to embracing everything the warm season has to offer, we’ve got you covered with timeless yet precious summer clothes for kids. Read on for our handy guide to dressing your child to look and feel amazing this summer — whatever the occasion.

Beach Bliss

Nothing says “summer” quite like sunny, sandy days at the beach and long afternoons at the pool. The takeaway for ready-for-anything moms? It’s time to go swimsuit shopping! Floral prints are having a major moment on the runway and in kids’ swimwear. A few of our favorite floral picks? Our Marilyn Smocked Two Piece Bathing Suit, Lainey Bathing Suit, and Printed Summer Bathing Suit.

Of course, girls don’t get to have all the fun. Boys can also rock a flower print, as well as fun colors and other playful patterns. Fashion-forward little ones will also love our Frances Valentine Mackinac Swim Trunk and Colorblock Bayshore Swim Trunk.

When selecting swimsuits for boys and girls, prioritizing sun protective clothing for toddlers and bigger kids is also important. In addition to seeking out UV protective swimwear, sunhats, sunglasses, rash guards, and other sunny day accessories add another level of protection.

Playdate Action

Whether you’re headed to a playdate in the park or just hanging out with friends in the backyard, summer clothing should be more than cute. It should also be comfortable, durable, and easy to clean. Our extensive collection of play shorts for boys and girls features comfort-forward details like 100 percent cotton, elastic waists, and side patch pockets. The result? The ultimate combination of wearability and washability.

But just because comfortable play clothing covers the basics doesn’t mean it has to be boring. Bold solids and fanciful prints are hallmarks of our refreshingly fuss-free play clothing for kids.

About the Town

From storytime at the library to ice cream parlor evenings, summer is a great time for being out and about (with plenty of photo ops along the way). Capture all the feels of summer by dressing your kids in clothing that encapsulates the whimsy of the season.

Take our Daisy Collection, for example. This collection of timeless summer clothes for boys and girls features bright colors, charming florals, jaunty stripes, and much more. For a different yet equally appealing color palette, check out our vibrant When Life Gives You Lemons Collection.

Festive Fun

From summer weddings to holiday celebrations, there are also many occasions for dressing up during the summer. For example, there may be no more festive summertime event than the Fourth of July – and our Firecracker Collection and Americana Collection are all about the red, white, and blue. Plus, don’t forget to kick the summer off in style with our Memorial Day Must-Haves.

Summer is also wedding season, which means seeing family and friends. Shop our girls’ dresses, boys’ buttondowns, boys’ jackets, and boys’ pants to assemble the perfect wedding-worthy looks.
