7 Fashion Staples for your Children's Summer Wardrobe

A great capsule summer wardrobe will make it easy to get your little one ready for their next adventure. I worked with leading designer kids clothes retailer, Strawberry Children to put together a guide of what you need to make sure your youngster’s summer style shines through.

1. The perfect summer dress
Little dresses are summer must-haves, keeping little ones looking and feeling cool throughout the day. Dresses such as the rose sleeveless dress from Monnalisa are as easy to pack for holidays as they are to wear for a family barbecue or a special summer day trip. The red and cream colour-scheme is pretty and stylish - adorable right?

2. A Playful Romper
Keep young boys feeling comfortable but looking great in a cute romper. The 100% cotton baby boys romper from Ralph Lauren combines the style of kids designer clothes with a great summer colour. The poppers make it really easy to change those dreaded dirty nappies too.

3. Funky Swim Shorts
Summer is all about trips to the beach or afternoons in the paddling pool, and little ones will really make a splash in a pair of funky swim shorts. These floral swimming shorts are a top choice for style and comfort. The elasticated waist and drawstring ensure the perfect fit on your little man.

4. Cool and Comfortable Polo
Polo shirts have to be a mainstay of any boy’s wardrobe given how versatile and comfortable they are and this little white and pale blue polo is as cute as they come. The stripes and three-button fastening give it a stylish edge, while the 100% cotton will help keep your boy smiling on even the hottest of days.

5. Summer Shoe
The perfect summer shoe needs to be as practical as it is stylish. Take the Mini Melissa Cat Shoe - Have you ever seen something so cute? If only they made adult sizes! This is a shoe that would work equally as well on the beach as it would for a theme park day out. Made from from incredibly soft MelFlex plastic, your little one won’t be complaining about her tootsies.

6. Sun Hat
A sun hat is essential to keep your little one safe but that doesn’t mean it can’t be cute as well. The Armani Junior Baby Boys Sun Hat, available in pale blue or white, will stay on with the minimum of fuss and can transform any outfit into a designer look. Its soft jersey cotton makes it comfortable for small children to wear and a simple hand wash will keep it looking its best.

7. Pretty Accessories
And finally, my absolute favourite! Gorgeously girly accessories can transform a summer outfit in seconds. A simple t-shirt could become something very special with the addition of this jewelled collar from Monnalisa. Lined with soft cotton and with an adjustable ribbon fastening, this is the ultimate in easy-to-wear style.

Have I missed anything out? What’s your favourite summer piece in your little ones wardrobe?
