Chic Summer Checklist 2017
Posted on April 30 2017
Now that summer is just around the corner kids are beginning to count down the days until camp starts and beach days are an everyday affair. Before the fun can begin there are a few things we need to get in order to make sure there is a smile on everyone’s face; to guarantee this we made you your Chic Summer Checklist!
Let’s start with the obvious essentials for any beach or pool trip; their swimsuit and towel. When it comes to your little princess she is going to love strutting around poolside in Karl Lagerfeld’s pink and white color-block bikini. The adjustable straps and stretcy waistband allow for some room to grow and create a comfortable fit. Match this suit with Fendi’s pink logo beach towel made from a super soft cotton also available in yellow which will match flawlessly with Little Marc Jacobs boy’s leopard swim shorts. We are obsessed over these swim trunks as they will be all the rage thanks to the fierce leopard and jungle pattern. Also how can we forget about our blog post 'Color you won't be blue over' where we see two of those three shades of blue here.
When picking an outfit to cover up, acessibility is key because you know the first thing when arriving at the beach they’re going to want to get straight to the water. Stella McCartney’s Girls colorful sundress is perfect for this thanks to its flowing shape that is easy to throw on and off. For boys, a cool graphic tee by Scotch & Soda like their blue and yellow graphic tee to the left or Eleven Paris will work effortlessly and is an item that can be used all year round and is always in style.
Next up on your chic summer checklist is also one of our favorite accessories that we can’t help but hate to love. I know I can’t be the only one who avoided hats for years from fear of hat hair running my look, but now with their recent popularity everyone is loving this trend. It is so important to protect our skin from that harmful UV rays the sun projects and now it’s easier than ever to do so because hats are more stylish than ever. From a classic baseball hat to a wide brimmed floppy hat or even a cool fedora, protecting their faces can now be done fashionably. We love Karl Lagerfeld’s girls white ‘Choupette’ cap and Hugo Boss boy’s yellow logo cap for a quick go-to option when heading out the door to the park. Maybe they want to feel super chic laying poolside, pick up an adorable Chloé straw sunhats in ivory or beige for her and a Hugo Boss navy and beige fedora for him.
Hydration is so important when being out in the sun so, don’t forget to pick up one of Kenzo’s Pink or Blue water bottles made out of metal that will keep their water cold longer. Lastly they are going to need a bag to carry all their belongings in. Stella McCartney Kids patched backpack comes in a bright red/yellow or blue/green options. Made on the larger side, the reinforced back makes this sturdy backpack is the perfect size to carry all their summer necessities in all summer long.
There are so many options for your child to mix and match to find their own personal style. As summer will be here before you know it make sure to check off everything on your Chic Summer Checklist soon!
