Five fashion items every boy needs for summer!


SUMMER is fast approaching so if you haven't already, it's a good time to think about your boy's wardrobe.

From playing out longer in the sunshine to kicking a ball about on the beach, here are five items every boy needs to be summer ready!

1. A cool T-shirt

Nothing says 'the days are getting warmer and sunnier!' better than a fabulous T-shirt. 

From comic prints to cheeky slogans, simple colours to patterns, you're bound to find many suitable boys T-shirts that are just perfect for the summer months. Our pick of the bunch? This NYC inspired T-shirt. The coolest city, on the coolest top, for the coolest boy around.

2. A pair of hardwearing shorts

Boys will be boys! Getting up to mischief is what they're good at so make sure you're prepared this summer and get them a pair of shorts that will be tough enough to withstand their scrapes and adventures. A pair of denim shorts like the ones pictured above would be perfect.

3. A hoodie

We love the summer but let's face it, it doesn't always bring sunshine and warmth! So, for when those nights turn chilly or when it does nothing but rain, make sure your son has something to keep cosy in. This American-inspired hoodie is just the ticket.

4. A hat

All boys regardless of their age need a hat to protect them from the sun's rays. For toddlers and younger boys, sun hats are fine but for older boys, encourage them to keep their heads protected from the sun, by treating them to a 'too cool for school' cap.

5. A pair of trunks

Whether they're splashing about or going for a swim, every boy needs a decent pair of swimming trunks to get him through the summer. Chose from prints, famous characters or plain black. Just make sure they fit well and are comfortable to wear.

Other essentials? 

Cover them in suncream, get them to pop on their shades and keep them entertained outside with some sporting gear! They'll love you forever.

Here's to a glorious summer! (We hope.)

With love,
