This season, the sweetest styles are those covered in florals, stripes and ruffles – and that have them covered from the sun, too. Practical rashies and all-in-ones will keep them content and your mind at ease as they make the most of a day in the sunshine.

Boys just wanna have fun

Their agenda might be ‘maximum fun’, but yours can be ‘maximum practicality’, with quality swimwear in tonal blues and greys that will protect them from the sun, too. Look for bold logos and lettering for a beach look that’s as cool as them.

All the extras

While family beach days might be more ‘carefully considered’ than ‘carefree’ (sunscreen – check; towels – check; snacks – check; water – check), essentials from the likes of Sheridan, Polo Ralph Lauren and Skip Hop will make packing everything in all the more enjoyable. Plus, towels and sun-smart hats in fun stripes and prints will mean they won’t want to leave a thing behind.
