Take the fuss out of shopping for kids’ clothes with our guide to the best styles
Has any summer ever been anticipated with as much excitement as this year’s? The promise of sunny weather and more freedom after a winter spent cooped up indoors is certainly enticing. Get your kids kitted out for a summer of fun with easy staples, from multi-pack T-shirts, made with sustainably sourced cotton, to comfy shorts in a range of colours and fabrics. There are also some great new kids’ brands to check out, such as ELLE Junior, Original Penguin and Ben Sherman.
Fingers crossed that in the next few months, social events will finally start appearing back in the calendar, which is definitely an excuse for a bit of a wardrobe refresh. Hardwearing denim is a great choice for kids; look beyond jeans and try an always-handy denim jacket or a cute set of dungarees. Over-the-top prints are also making a splash across all age groups – call it fashion’s answer to a year of lockdown neutrals – and a bright, colourful T-shirt or shirt is perfect for pairing with plain shorts.
