The Best Kids’ Summer Essentials

Published on 18th May 2017

A fun and exciting time of year, most little ones are looking forward to the start of the school break and long sunny evenings or a holiday away. Check out our favourite summer essentials for your little smiling faces.


We’re loving the influx of cute boys’ essentials at our favourite stores. Whether you’re packing his case for a family holiday or you’re dressing him for a summer birthday party, you’ll find great styles. Children love to be comfortable so they can run, play and explore at ease. With this in mind, pick up some soft stretchy shorts, fleece or brushed cotton pieces to make sure he can get out and about in the warmer weather. Velcro sandals are perfect for running around in with no chance of falling off or tripping up in the park. When taking trips to the beach or the pool, complete his summer style with fun character swim shorts or full-cover sets to protect delicate skin from the sun.


Summer style for little girls is so much fun. From printed playsuits and gorgeous embroidered dresses, there are so many new looks that we are loving. Add a cool touch to a stylish little girl’s wardrobe with funky dip-dye denim and pom-pom shoulder bags perfectly sized for carrying her sunglasses. When on the beach, she’ll love surfer style swimsuits or cute frilled tankinis. Top of our list is the two-piece rash vest set from Next, both cute and practical as it provides fuller coverage for hot days. Floral canvas trainers are a great option as they can be worn on day trips or by the pool for comfort and cute style.


Summer holidays aren’t complete without some new luggage! Kids can carry their own essentials and books for the plane with adorable character wheelie cases featuring all their favourite cartoons. Although summer is a time to enjoy and be carefree, safety will always be at the forefront when children are around. Flotation suits mean even the littlest family member can have a splash in the pool with mum or dad and pirate ponchos are perfect for drying off while they enjoy an ice-cream! Protect delicate skin with the all-important sun protection, specifically designed for children. We love dry spray formulas for wriggly little ones – quick spray and they’re good to go without feeling sticky.
