Easy Summer Holiday Outfits for Kids

Summer is finally upon us and with that comes a few holiday weekends! Like all of you, we’re big fans of a summer holiday weekend. They’re the perfect time to relax and recharge while spending quality time with friends and family. As things slowly start to look more normal, we’re sure you have a whole list of activities planned. Whether it’s a backyard barbeque or a weekend-long summer trip to a resort, your little ones are going to need something to wear. That’s where we come in to help. We’ve taken the top summer trends and put together a guide to all your summer holiday weekend dressing.  

With Memorial Day Weekend upon us, it’s officially the “unofficial” start of summer. That means we’re breaking out all our favorite summer styles from storage Once you’ve taken inventory of the summer pieces you already own, it’s time to start thinking about the 2021 trends you want to add. Start by thinking about what your little one is into at the moment. If she’s busy all day playing sports, try to choose more activewear and athleisure pieces. For the boy who won’t leave the pool, start thinking about fun clothes he can easily wear with his favorite swimsuits. Head over to the kidpik shop for all your summer essentials.  

Girls Style

Heading out of town this holiday weekend? You’re going to need an assortment of pieces for your girl, and we have everything you need. The weather in May can be tricky, so it’s all about layering! Start by thinking about daywear. Let her choose some of her favorite graphic tees from the kidpik shop. These are great because they can be worn with shorts, like the Tie Dye Rainbow Short, and then with jeans when it gets chillier at night. She’ll need something to wear to a family dinner. Why not swap out the traditional dress for a more fashion-forward jumpsuit? She’ll love being able to run around with her friends or siblings, but she’ll still be dressed up enough for the resort’s restaurant. Don’t forget her trusty denim jacket to layer over any outfit!

We didn’t forget about the little ones! Our toddler collection has everything your little girl needs to look and feel her best this holiday weekend. Whether you’re going to a family meal or spending the day at a children’s museum, there’s something for every activity. For your girl that’s always on the go, we recommend the classic t-shirt and short combo. Our Ruffle Hem Short comes in a variety of colors. She’ll love choosing her favorite, and then you can help coordinate it with her t-shirt. Don’t forget the shoes! Choose something bright and colorful like our Coated Denim Hightop to really let her personal style shine through. Not only will she look fashion-forward, but she’ll still be able to run around and play.

If you’re in a warmer climate and heading to the beach this holiday weekend, you’re going to need the perfect summer wear to coordinate with your girl’s swimsuit. Try our Smocked Tiered Skirt. This is the perfect piece to throw on over her bathing suit. If she’s wearing a one-piece it can even be used to create a full outfit. Otherwise, choose a coordinating tank that will help keep her cool in the hot sun. Don’t forget sunglasses and sunscreen! For shoes, we recommend a slide like our Metallic Buckle Slide. These come in an array of colors that can be used to mix and match with her favorite swimsuits. They’re the best beach shoe, as they’re so easy to slip on and go, and lightweight enough to carry in your beach tote. 

Boy’s Style

If you’re heading to a national park for your family vacation, your boy will love wearing some of our kidpik activewear. We have a wide variety of cool graphic tees that he can wear with his favorite active shorts. Choose a pair of shorts that coordinate with the colors in his tee. He’ll look on-trend and put together but will still be able to partake in all the activities this summer trip. Don’t forget a hat and sunscreen to protect from the sun!

The next look is perfect for your boy to wear to a Memorial Day BBQ. We know it’s always a struggle over wanting him to dress up a bit, but still be comfortable enough to run around and play. Our Pull-on Denim Short is the perfect happy medium. While they look just like a typical denim short, they have an elastic waist which makes it much easier to compete in his favorite games and sports at the BBQ! Pair it with a stylish graphic tee like our Sunshine Ringer Retro Tee. It’s the perfect tee for the start of summer. Our Canvas Boat Shoes round out the look perfectly. They’re still comfortable while also being on-trend and pulling the whole outfit together.
