Whether shopping for toddlers or preteens, now is a great time to shop for summer essentials and to begin buying items that can last through the fall. To help make shopping easier, I made a list of some excellent items to buy for kids. Some items include adorable shoes, fun bathing suits, and pretty dresses. There’s even a cool backpack to start getting kids excited about the next school year now. 

 For Girls

Summer Clothes Shopping List

Clarks USA

Clarks USA Bill Prize Toddler Shoes

Ages 2-6

These sparkly, pink shoes are incredibly glamorous. The style will certainly catch the attention of girls, while also keeping them safe as they play on the playground. Summer might be a great time to slip on sandals, but kids need better support to prevent falls and to keep pebbles off their toes. With these shoes, your girl can have style and safety.

UV Skinz Short Sleeve Sun & Swim Shirts

Ages 2-14

 Swimsuits don’t always provide the coverage that girls need. With swim shirts, girls can look modest and age appropriate. Because the swim shirts offer such great coverage, girls can be more active in and out of the water. Plus, the shirts come in fun colors and patterns so they’ll appeal to kids.

Eden & Zoe Poppy Dress

Ages 2-10

For nice occasions this summer, try a soft, knit dress in beautiful, neutral colors. Kids will love the comfort of the material, while adults can appreciate the cool style. If you buy the item a little big, it could last through fall. Paired with a cardigan, it would be an awesome outfit for the first week of school.

Limeapple Orchid Fuschia Tie Die Swim Cover Up

Ages 4-14

 Add some color to your girl’s beachwear with this bright orchid and fuschia cover up, which is just right for drying off in the sun. With decorative fringe detailing, the item fits with the latest styles for kids. It’s super cute, and it would be a very practical pick for summer.

 For Boys

Tom & Teddy Malibu Blue Swim Shorts

Ages 1-12

 Basic blue swim shorts can appeal to any boy. Because the design has one color and no patterns, it can appeal to kids who prefer a simple style. The swim shorts come with a drawstring and an elastic waistband to help create an optimal fit for your kid.

LEGO City Fire Helmet Heritage Basic Backpack

Any Age

Pep your kids up for the upcoming school year with this adorable, hip backpack. The backpack is just the right item for kids who collect LEGO sets as well as for kids who loved the LEGO movie.

Shrimp and Grits Blue Crab Polo

Age 4-5

As a basic essential in boys’ closets, the polo shirt would look great on any occasion. Simple, neutral coloring means that the shirt could go well with more bold, patterned swim shorts. The shirt would be an especially sweet memento if your child is sharing his first bushel of Maryland blue crabs with the family.
