Kitting Out Your Kid For Summer (Guest Post)

Kitting Out Your Kid For Summer

With British Summertime kicking in and the huge snowfall finally melting away, perhaps it’s time to pack away the winter jackets and start thinking about planning your child’s summer wardrobe (fingers crossed!).

You’ll know that you like to be comfortable and cool during the hot summer months, so why would your child be any different? When they’re playing in the great outdoors, you do need to protect them from the sun but ensure that they’re not too hot as well.

So, if you’re looking to keep your little one cool – in more than one way – here are a few things to keep in mind when shopping.

During the summer your child is more likely to be active and playing outside – the perfect opportunity to destroy brand new clothes! When you’re buying clothes for the summer season, check that they are made from durable materials so you don’t have to replace them in a few weeks’ time.

Durable clothes tend to be made from heavier materials, but this could make your child hot and bothered. Try and find clothes that will last but are made from breathable materials, such as cotton or linen.


Lightly-coloured clothes reflect the heat, whereas dark clothing absorbs it. This is something you will need to consider when choosing clothes for your children. If they’re dressed in dark or black t-shirts and shorts, they’ll get much hotter than if they’re wearing white and pastel colours.


In the summertime, you won’t want to suffocate your child’s feet in big boots or shoes. Try kitting them out in some flip-flops or sandals to make sure that their feet are cool at all times.

Other accessories

It’s not just clothes that you need to think about when the sun starts to shine. You will also need to protect your children from the sun with their accessories.

What about sunglasses to ensure they’re not squinting and a cap to shade their head (and possibly neck) away from strong sun rays? It’s easy to kit your kid out for summer with Ladybird clothes from because they have a great range of lightweight but durable clothes for children so why not look at their range for inspiration?
