Whether you’re off to a sun-drenched island somewhere this summer or taking a trip down to the coast, finding the right summer wardrobe for the kids can be really difficult. Summer clothes need to be robust, practical, but look great too – not to mention machine-washable and easily packed away without crumpling!
At Littlewoods, it’s important for us that our kids’ clothes are hard-wearing while still being stylish, so we’ve created a summer range that’s great for children of all ages and all types of holiday. Our beachwear provides your kids with a cool look while still protecting them from the sun and giving them all the freedom they need to enjoy their holidays.
Footwear is really important for beach holidays: it should be practical enough to withstand lots of running around but still look cute. Girls will love the Crocs Electro Girls Sandals in hot pink that are perfect for exploring rock pools, while the Ladybird Melody Girls Canvas Shoe are easy to put on and come in three cute colours, including a ladybird print! For the boys, the adidas Originals Adiflip K Junior Sandals are a simple and versatile pair of flipflops for beach holidays, or try the Timberland Mad River Boys Sandals for younger boys that have superb grip and easy-to-use Velcro fastenings.
When it comes to swimwear, the more fashionable and funky the better! We love the Freespirit Girls Frill Swimsuits (2 pack) in coral pink and black animal print – or how about the Missoni-inspired brightly coloured Freespirit Girls Bright Swimsuits (2 pack)? Boys will appreciate some cool and classic swim shorts, like the adidas Toddler Boy Swim Shorts in cobalt blue, or opt for the Demo Swimshorts (2 pack) so he can wear one pair in the pool and have another for the beach.
Covering up on the beach is essential, so make sure your kids are fully protected with a high factor suntan lotion, wide brimmed hat and sunglasses. Make sure you pack some t-shirts or dresses for your days at the beach, too, which the kids can throw on over their swimsuits when they’re having their lunch. We love these Ladybird Jersey Dresses (2 pack) with a cute spot and ice cream print, and for younger girls, the Ladybird 3-piece Playsuit Set, complete with sunhat, is the perfect beach coverup. Practical and brightly coloured, the Ladybird Shorts (3 pack) are a beachwear essential for the boys – pair with a cool t-shirt like the Ladybird Tees (2 pack) with cute turn up sleeves, and you’ve got the perfect beach cover up.
