  • Kids' Summer Outfits That Adults Can Also Wear

    These styles are so cute you'd want to wear them, too!

    Planning your upcoming family vacation? Don't forget your kids' summer-ready #OOTDs, so they can keep their cool style from head to toe while the whole family soaks up some fun under the sun.

    If you're opting for a staycation, though, your kids can still rock these summer outfits that you wish were available in your size. Check out these #OOTD ideas for kids that parents can also use as style pegs:


    Spin the color wheel

    Say no to black and dark-colored tops, and yes to everything bright and light! Are the kids off to a summer camp? Let the boys wear unexpected color combos like green and pink, so they can spread good vibes with these feel-good hues. As for the girls, choose easy-breezy colors to show off their sunny personality.

    FOR ADULTS ALSO: Dad can upgrade his comfy shorts-and-shirt combo by injecting some color.


    Play around with prints

    For a play date with friends, let them run around and laugh out loud in style with florals and other patterns, and statement tops. Also, let the girls wear shorts and culottes instead of skirts for a day of active fun.

    FOR ADULTS ALSO: For moms, the loose and lightweight pants are perfect for a day of running errands. Just pair it with a T-shirt in a lively print and you're good to go.


    Layers of fun

    An easy way to create a new outfit is to mix and match T-shirts and button-downs. For summer, pick a print with a laid-back vibe, and pair it with shorts in a bright color.

    FOR ADULTS ALSO: Dads can use their Hawaiian shirts to play up their T-shirt and shorts for summer.


    Comfort is key

    During the summer season, it's important to keep the kids stylishly comfy from sun up to sun down. Choose loose-fitting clothing made from cotton fabric. Dress up the girls in off-shoulder tops and gauchos for a dash of chic.

    FOR ADULTS ALSO: Wearing a loose, off-shoulder top is a classy way to show some skin. It's summer after all!


    Play it up

    If your boys will wear bright shirts, pair these with shorts in neutral colors, just in case they feel iffy about the bold colors and prints. Now they're ready to rock the playground!

    FOR ADULTS ALSO: Dads, why not try putting on statement tees to bring out your inner kid?


    Pretty in pastels

    Does your daughter love pink? Encourage her to try other sweet, sherbet shades for a cool new look this summer.

    FOR ADULTS ALSO: Moms can wear lavender and powder blue, too!


    Let kids be kids

    Encourage the kids to go outside, try fun summer activities, and learn something new while beating the heat in cool and comfy numbers from SM Kids. Mix and match or even go matchy-matchy with your kiddos with easy-to-put-together and easy-on-the-pocket outfits.
