What To Pack For Their Next Vacation
The school holidays have already arrived and, while you’re wondering where this year has gone, we are here to help you prepare for their most exciting summer yet. Whether you’re holidaying abroad or relaxing closer to home, we have their wardrobe essentials covered.
Are the kids booked into an activity camp? We have activewear to keep them cool and comfortable for days filled with frolics. Wherever you go, keep them safe with our UV protective swimwear. And, if you’re lucky enough to be going on safari, check out the perfect pieces to wear while hoping to spot the Big Five.
Call Of The Wild
Nothing beats embarking on the adventure of a lifetime – heading off on safari. And what could be better than preparing the perfect outfits for open air rides across the plains? This boys shirt featuring KENZO KIDS' distinctive jungle print, is made from soft, lightweight cotton, so will keep them cool. Linen is also a must for safari adventures as it's light and even more breathable than cotton. Traditional colours that blend in with the landscape are the order of the day - these brown long linen shorts by Il Gufo tick all the boxes. Style natural fabrics effortlessly with a pair of faux leather Birkenstock sandals. Light layers are key as they provide alternative protection for hot sun rays and unpredictable insects. The day time is all about covering up, so keep bikinis and swimsuits for sundown as you enjoy a cool dip in the pool. We especially love Molo’s range of eco-conscious swimwear and accessories in safari shades with exotic prints.

Eat. Sleep. Beach. Repeat.
Whether you’re headed for tropical sands or local pebble beaches, keep your little ones protected from the sun with certified UV protective swimwear, hats and cover-ups. Sun safe options don’t have to be boring – discover our collection of bright and colourful swimwear from some of your favourite brands, including Sunuva, Liewood and Molo. Don’t forget those all-important hats, sunglasses and sandals packed into an impossibly cheerful beach bag, like this one by Mini Rodini. We love these shark sliders from Joules and these fun fish sunglasses from Molo (they even have maximum UVA/UVB) for protecting little peepers.

IN THE CITY
Mini Breaks & Cityscapes
Whether you're strolling around historic European landmarks or darting from museums to shops in the urban metropolis, these long summer day trips can be thirsty work for children. Comfort is key as are thin layers. Think light playsuits and dresses for girls - like this one by Petit Bateau with a chic Paris print. For boys, go for lightweight tees and airy linen shirts like this one by Bonpoint, paired with shorts. Dress little feet in comfy trainers or breathable sandals for racking up the steps and save yourself the backache with their own backpack for loading up with all their tickets and treasured souvenirs. For a something smaller and easier to carry, this camera messenger bag by Michael Kors will have them ready for their close-up.

AT SUMMER CAMP
School’s Out, Camp’s In
Every summer has a story and time spent at camp allows kids the freedom to write their own. Their weeks will be filled with endless activities, adventures and play so keep them cool and comfortable with soft and stretchy cotton clothes which allow them to run, leap and dance to their heart’s content. Discover Polo Ralph Lauren’s preppy collection – the perfect designer to fill their summer camp wardrobes with and pack a pair of VEJA trainers to keep them tearing around at full speed, whatever the weather.
