Kid's Designer Sandals

From playing on the beach to dinner at your hotel, making sure your kids have cute and comfy footwear to step out in is essential. When it comes to boys' sandals, a classic pair of Birkenstock’s is always a good choice. They’ll compliment shorts and casual tees in the daytime, and are smart enough to match with shirts in the evening, too.

For her, a trendy pair of rubber sliders are ideal for by the pool or walking on the beach. You can also add some girls' sandals in metallic leather to her case for a fun alternative. They’ll pair perfectly with any cute skirts or designer dresses for sunny strolls or lunch by the water.

Girls & Boys Shorts

Whether they’re wearing them over swimwear or pairing them with brightly coloured t-shirts for a day of adventuring, always stock your child’s holiday suitcase with a couple of pairs of shorts. For girls, choose printed cotton styles to go with logo tees and over swimwear for beach days.

For boys, stretch cotton styles will keep them cool in the sun, look great with both casual and smarter tops, and are also ideal for travel days.

Girls & Boys Tops

You might get away with only packing a few pairs of bottoms for the trip, but your kids will go through multiple tops on holiday. With that in mind, pack plenty of simple, lightweight cotton t-shirts. They’ll take up minimal space in your suitcase, plus they can throw them on over most of their holiday wardrobe, from leggings to denim shorts and printed skirts.

Girls & Boys Swimwear

Family holidays in the sun mean plenty of pool time and playing together on the beach, so make sure your children have swimwear they feel happy and confident in for the whole trip.

Printed designer swimsuits are a guaranteed hit with your kids. Go for bright colours, funky prints, and plenty of ruffles. Keep in mind that they can also wear their swimwear with shorts for a simple warm-weather outfit. Tropical prints by Zimmermann and trending tie-dyed designs from Givenchy are made to be paired with denim shorts and colourful sandals.

When it comes to choosing the ideal swimwear for boys, dark logo swim shorts are a must. A comfy and stylish piece for playing by the pool, they can also be worn with t-shirts and sandals for a casual summer outfit making them an essential summer holiday item.

3 Packing Tips For Parents

1. Check Your Weather App

Before you start curating your kid's cases, take a look at the weather forecast for your trip. High temperatures call for cool clothing and protective accessories, whilst cloudier days require light layers. Pack light cotton caps alongside their shades to protect them from the midday sun. Also, don’t forget to pop in some lightweight knitwear in case they need an extra evening layer.

2. Start with the Essentials

When packing your kids’ suitcase, it’s always best to begin with the basics. Versatile clothing that they’ll be comfy in and want to wear on repeat are key here. Think fun leggings, cool shorts, basic tees, and swimwear for the daytime, then add in a couple of special items like dresses or short-sleeved shirts for the evening.

3. Let Older Children Pack Their Own Case

Kids aged 10 or older are likely to have their own sense of style. So, if they're old enough, let them pack their own case or carry on - with a helping hand from you of course.

Suggest they bring mostly weekend-style clothing for a relaxing family holiday. Polo shirts and shorts for boys, lightweight tops and printed shorts or skirts for girls. If they need a few smarter items for the trip you have planned, opt for designer girls' dresses from Stella McCartney and Self Portrait to pair with flat sandals. For boys, you can never go wrong with a classic Ralph Lauren shirt.
