Tip 1 | Don't be afraid to mix prints and patterns.
A striped shirt over a flannel pattern shirt, like the above from Janie and Jack at Rockvale Outlets Lancaster, is an adorable look for any kid. You can get more use out of the items in your child's closet when you start wearing 2 items that have prints or patterns. Test stuff out by laying it out on the bed to see how it actually looks.
Tip 2 | Pair bold colored bottoms with a patterned top.
How cute is the outfit above from Janie and Jack at Rockvale Outlets Lancaster? A pair of bold colored red shorts is paired with an adorably patterned top with little sailboats on it. If you match your bold colored bottoms with a color that appears in the top, it will make a nice combination.
Tip 3 | Embrace bright colors.
Coral, orange, yellow, and lime green are just a few of the colors I saw a lot of at Crazy 8 at Rockvale Outlets Lancaster on my shopping trip. When shopping for bathing suits or tankinis for your child, make sure to choose a fun color.
Tip 5 | Layering on cooler days is okay.
Maybe you are going on a trip into the woods, or it's just a breezy day, so don't be afraid to layer. In fact, you can even look at outfits like the one above at Crazy 8 at Rockvale Outlets Lancaster to find outfits that are sewn together so they look like your child is wearing multiple layers. It's actually easier to get dressed for them and they won't get as overheated since they don't have as many layers on. This is also a good idea when you want to protect them from ticks and bugs in the woods or when at a lake.
Tip 6 | Embrace graphics.
Graphic tops are so cute these days for kids. The one above from Crazy 8 at Rockvale Outlets Lancaster is a great way to celebrate summer weather. It's a nice casual option when you want your kid to be able to play around and not worry about getting dirty.
