What Clothes Are Best For Kids In Summer?
When it comes to a winning kids’ summer wardrobe, less is more. It’s important to keep things light, whether that means wearing fewer layers or choosing breathable fabrics.
Warm weather is a fab time for kids’ to ditch the long sleeve tops and bottoms and stock up on fun t-shirts and breezy shorts. For footwear, sandals and trainers are our go-to, with a pair of rain boots on reserve (of course) – British weather can be ever-so unpredictable!
Easy Tops & T-Shirts
Girls’ tops and boys’ t-shirts are the wear-on-repeat hero of every mini wardrobe. At George, we’ve got endless vibrant colours and bold prints to choose from, fab for sunny days out and trips to the park.
To create a capsule wardrobe, stock up on kids’ tops in staple colours like navy, white and pastel shades. A savvy and sustainable way to shop, kids’ t-shirts can be worn all year round and are a breeze to layer up with hoodies and sweatshirts during the cooler months.
‘Cos their mini schedule is always packed with parties and fun occasions, our cute girls’ blouses and dapper boys’ polo shirts will smarten up their look and guarantee those aww-worthy moments.
Swing Into Shorts
A breeze to pop on and super lightweight, shorts tick the box for all those fun-packed summer activities. From beach trips and picnics to hanging out with pals, we’ve got a colour-pop pair ready for every adventure.
On days when every moment counts, boys’ shorts in track styles power sporty souls through action-packed hours playing their favourite outdoor games. When it’s time to get pretty picnic-ready, printed girls’ shorts or a ditsy denim skirt will impress even the fussiest fashionista.
Slide Into Sandals
Keeping tiny toes cool during hot weather is essential, and sandals and sliders are the answer! Shop squishy jelly sandals for girls (with ultimate 90s throwback vibes!) and too cool boys’ sandals in colour-pop shades and fun prints. Or, if your little character wants to take their fave pal with them this summer, find Disney, Marvel and Star Wars pairs in our boys’ character shoes and girls’ character shoes drop.
