Summer Fashion: Perfect Playtime Outfits for Kids

There’s nothing about summers that you cannot love, (except the blazing hot sun on some days maybe) especially summer clothes. I absolutely love summers and summer fashion. It’s the time of the year you do not have to worry about layering up or carrying an umbrella. Kids, too, love summers – courtesy: summer vacation.

Summer vacation calls for summer camps, workshops, and a day-long of playing.. every day! This means you should stack up your child’s wardrobe with some breezy summer clothes that are perfect playtime outfits.

Playtime outfits for girls

Cotton Dress – Sandals

It’s best to opt for flowy and airy dresses as opposed to body-hugging clothes. Cotton dresses, with simple frills or layers, that float in the wind should be great for the summer. You can choose sleeveless, spaghetti straps, or halter necks for these dresses. Pair this outfit with a pair of comfy sandals and a high pony for the best summer look.

Baggy top – Denim Shorts – Sandals

If your daughter isn’t much of a dress-lover, you can get her a pair of denim shorts or chino shorts. Pair this up with a baggy top with prints that echo the summer vibe. You can choose an off-shoulder or cold-shoulder top to go with the shorts. A simple braid and a pair of sandals will perfect you little girl’s look.

Playtime outfits for boys

T-shirt – Shorts – Crocs

Simple tees and shorts never go out of style and are a fashion staple for the entire year. No matter what the season is, (except, maybe winters) your boy can sport this outfit with a pair of easy crocs.

Shirt – Shorts – Slipons

Cotton shorts or chino shorts are a great alternative to denim shorts. You can keep several pairs of shorts in your child’s closet all year round and use them for picnics, outings, travel, and so on. You can pair the shorts with a roll-up shirt adorned with cute summer-ey prints. Get your son a pair of cool slip-ons to complete the playtime outfit.
