Cute and Comfortable: The Best Summer Clothes for Kids

By Ginger Gray

We all want our children to look adorable – and be comfortable. Fortunately, there are a lot of fun options for parents and grandparents.

Muslin is a fabric that has the ability to withstand countless washes which is a huge plus for parents. Not to mention it gets even better and softer with age. The delicate yet durable weave of muslin also evokes stretchiness with a natural give allowing a more comfortable wear for your child.

Muslin blankets became popular about five years ago and are still a good choice. This open weave, cotton fabric is breathable and cool. The blankets are big enough to swaddle a baby, but not hot. You can throw a muslin blanket over your stroller to protect from insects and keep your child comfortable and calm.

Recently this versatile fabric has been used for clothing. Doodlebugs has cute one piece outfits, dresses and panty covers for girls and adorable outfits for boys as well. They’re so soft and comfy, and will remind you of something you throw onto your child after leaving the beach. The store also carries Angel Dear, a brand that goes up to size 4. Their clothing is very well made and attractive.

This year, Three Friends has great fabrics and designs for older children’s bathing suits. They have been a big hit. Prodoh, a company based in Greenville, South Carolina, designs children’s clothing with the outdoors in mind. The lightweight seersucker also offers a 50+ UPF to keep kids safe in the sun.
