  3 minute read

Summer is here, and it's time to dress your little one in cool, comfortable clothes that are perfect for the sunny days ahead. As a parent, you want to ensure your toddler stays comfortable and protected while enjoying outdoor activities. In this blog post, we'll discuss the essential clothes you need for your toddler in summer, ensuring they stay stylish, safe, and ready for fun-filled adventures.


1. Breathable tops and t-shirts


When the temperature rises, dressing your toddler in breathable tops and t-shirts is crucial. Opt for lightweight fabrics that allow airflow and prevent overheating. You can also look for tops with wide necklines or buttons to make dressing easier when they're keen to make a run for it! Choose bright, vibrant colours and fun prints to add a touch of summer style to your toddler's wardrobe.

2. Comfortable shorts

Shorts and skirts are perfect for keeping your toddler cool and comfortable. Look for shorts with an elastic waistband for easy on and off dressing, and consider ones with adjustable straps to accommodate growth spurts. For skirts, choose flowy fabrics that allow freedom of movement. These versatile pieces can be paired with various tops, making it easy to mix and match outfits for those holiday plans, too.

3. Sun-protective hats


Protecting your toddler's delicate skin from harmful UV rays is essential. Invest in a wide-brimmed sun hat that provides shade for their face, neck, and ears. And a parent hack? As most toddlers can't sit still for long, choose hats with a chin strap to ensure they stay put during playtime. Remember to apply sunscreen to exposed areas for added protection from the sun too!

4. Lightweight dresses


Dresses and rompers are adorable options for little ones, offering both style and comfort. Opt for lightweight, loose-fitting dresses made from breathable fabrics. Look for designs with adjustable straps or elastic waistbands for a better fit. Rompers are an excellent alternative, as they provide a one-piece solution that allows for easy movement and diaper changes.

6. Lightweight Footwear

Choosing the right footwear for your toddler in summer is important. Look for lightweight, breathable shoes made of materials like canvas or mesh. Sandals or open-toe shoes with adjustable straps are excellent choices as they provide airflow and are easy to put on and take off. Remember to select shoes that offer proper support and protection for your toddler's developing feet.
