summer family fashion

Filed Under Stuff | July 10, 2013


School is out, the sun is hot, and it’s time for relaxation and staying cool – so it only makes sense that your wardrobe reflects the same! Today we’ve put together some summer outfits for the whole family that will effortlessly take you from the beach to the barbeque, not to mention all points in between. And if these clothes make your heart go pitter-pat, we’ve rounded up all of these items (and links to where to get them) into collections on Polyvore.

for mum (pictured)
This quirky Zara Bird Print Dress is great to wear over a swimsuit, or you can throw on a soft H&M Denim Shirt when the weather gets a little cooler with the setting sun. White-hot Deena & Ozzy Double-Strap Sandals are a must-have for summer because they match with anything. For example, on our Polyvore board we’ve paired it with a Striped Beach Tote by Joe Fresh – it’ll carry everything you’ll need for a day out with the family (except maybe the barbeque!).

for dad
Keep dad looking classic and casual with a nautical-inspired Gap Henley Tee and some nicely structured Lifetime Collective Wendell Shorts. Slip a pair of H&M wood-inspired sunglasses into a pocket, and finish the look with stylish Vans Espadrille Sneakers before you get ready to race the little ones through the park.

for your girl
Your little girl will be princess of her very own jungle sporting a super-cute POPUPSHOP Tiger Swimsuit, and can dry off in the breathable Nico.Nico Safari Dress, both made of organic and sustainable materials. There’s no need to take her shoes off in the water, as her dependable and durable Salt Water Sweetheart Sandals are ocean-friendly…and you can even throw ‘em in the washing machine after a day at the beach!

for your boy
Keep your little dude comfortable and UV protected in a Black Tubbs Shirt, perfect as a shirt or cover-up over a tee. The pockets of his Joe Fresh Plaid Shorts will definitely get full of sand, but at $12 a pop you can afford to buy two! Add some colour with a pair of low-maintenance Jefferson Shoes by Native, which can be easily hosed down for another run around the park.
