Summer Clothing Essentials For Toddlers

Like seasons, clothes also change. A person’s wardrobe should be able to adapt to the weather and a toddler’s clothing is no exception. Here is a list of summer clothing must-haves to keep every toddler boy and girl cool and comfy during sunny days.

Tank Tops

You will need a lot of these on hand especially during really hot days. Tank tops are very comfortable to wear 24/7, plus, they are really inexpensive, so buy lots of them.


This, of course, is a wardrobe staple no matter what the season is. The secret to keeping your toddler feeling and looking fresh during the summer months is to buy shirts made of 100% cotton. Cotton is a breathable fabric which allows air to reach your toddler’s body and sweat to evaporate rather than stick to the skin and cause irritation. Opt for light-colored shirts since dark colors absorb heat rather than reflect light which makes a person perspire more. Buy lots of shirts as well, they are very easy to mix and match.


Wearing pants during summer is just too itchy and hot. Skip jeans for now and instead, dress your little boy in shorts. Cargo shorts and denim shorts can be dressed up or down. Your toddler can match it with a tank top for a day at the park or match it with a cute, collared shirt if the family goes out for dinner.

Sundresses and Skirts

Keep your adorable little girl pretty and comfortable by dressing her in sundresses and skirts (matched with cotton tees). Save the tights and other froufrou clothes for winter. You can choose from a wide selection of colors and designs. Some dresses and skirts are sold as a set for mommies and little girls so you can be matchy matchy.


Of course, summer will not be complete without hitting the beach. Buy swimwear with built-in sun protection or UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) or rash guard shirts so your little one can enjoy playing in the water and building sand castles sans insect bites, itching and sunburn.


Wearing sandals keeps the feet cool and supported during the summer months. Go for strapped Velcro sandals. They are very flexible, allowing your toddler to run around freely.

Flip Flops

Flip flops are great especially when you are taking a trip to the beach. Your toddler will probably need more than two flip flops so stock up and get them in the cutest colors possible.

Sun Hat

Look for a sun hat that will shade not just your toddler’s pretty face but also the ears and the back of your toddler’s neck. A classic, wide-brimmed sun hat that ties under the chin is perfect. Go for a sun hat made of cotton in a tight weave as it is the coolest and provides the best protection.

Toddler Sunglasses

A good pair of toddler sunglasses will complete your toddler’s summer wardrobe. Look for one with wraparound lenses (to cover the eyes completely), a flexible frame and band for a comfortable and secure fit and one that offers 100% protection from UVA and UVB rays (to shield your toddler’s sensitive eyes).

Summertime means a lot of days spent outdoors. Stock up your toddler’s wardrobe with these summer clothing essentials to keep your precious one safe while he is having the time of his life.
