Summer of Fun!
Kids’ Warm-Weather Outfit Ideas

Make the most of long, sunny days with retro-inspired tops and blouses, sweet dresses and cargo trousers, ideal for summer adventures, play dates and camping trips.

Feelgood florals

The summer solstice might have been and gone (sob), but there are still trips to be taken and adventures to be had. Combining beautiful, summery fabrics with fun and functional designs, our sweet pastel and ditsy floral pieces hit on the key trends for spring/summer 2023. These kids’ clothes might look pretty, but they’re also designed to work hard. Details such as the romantic frilled collar add interest to dainty blouses, ideal for taking on holiday or popping on with shorts on park outings.

No summer adventurer should be without a pair of dungarees, brightened up for the warmer months in on-trend lilac and paired with a crisp white blouse to make the colour sing. Alternatively, team a slogan T-shirt with a cargo skirt for a smart utilitarian look that’s ready for anything July may bring.

Hooray for sundress season

Nothing signals summer like twirling about in a floaty sundress and sandals, or barefoot on the lawn. Dresses are also super easy, one-and-done outfit options for busy days, thanks to there being no co-ordinating elements to worry about. Look for our dresses with matching scrunchies for optimum ease (and cuteness!), ideal for keeping hair away from hot necks when playing outdoors.

This season’s prettiest dresses feature plenty of frills, including vintage-inspired smocking, Peter Pan collars, puff sleeves and ruffled skirts. Team with chunky rip-tape sandals and a denim jacket to keep the look casual and playground-ready. Alternatively, stock up on our simple T-shirt dresses, which feature are host of playful patterns and are just the ticket for run-around days.
