8 Casual Summertime Looks For Kids
Summertime is all about being outside—and your children require a wardrobe filled with casual looks that wow. Sure, we love a party dress for our girls and a linen blazer for our boys, but what to wear for the daily activities? It’s time to get creative.
Your kids hop, skip, and jump their way through the three months that span the season and their clothing needs to step it up when it comes to activewear that still looks cute. Sure, we love a tracksuit or pair of stretchy shorts, but there’s a whole world of fashion for your pint-sized cutes that exists that is both stylish as well as functional. In fact, when we shop casual summertime looks for our mini-mes, we kind of wish most of it came in our size. A mom can dream…
When it comes to day-wear, summertime heat is a rough one to contend with. Getting dressed for that sticky, stagnant air can be tricky, so we’re shopping flowy floral tops from Bonpoint, bright and boxy camis from Dolce & Gabbana, and playsuits from Chloé. As for the boys, they’re about to amp up their look by way of seersucker shorts from CPC Childrenswear, retro tops from Gucci and graphic tees by Marc Jacobs. Of course, we’re also preparing for those colder summer evenings for our daughters and our sons, switching shorts for denim from Acne, Burberry, and the like and layering up with classic Saint James Breton stripes.
As we do best when it comes to summer, we’re seeking out the brightest colors, most whimsical embroidery, and casual shoes that run the gamut from pompom-embellished Aquazzura sandals to bright red high-top sneakers from Old Soles. Below, find our favorite casual summertime looks for kids, just in time for that mid-season wardrobe slump.
