Tanya says: My kids wear pretty much casual clothes so they can easily and comfortably play sports, fight, and run with their friends. This Kenzo T-shirt features a loose fit and fun embellishments to add some color. I sometimes find boys’ clothes a bit boring so it’s great to see some modern elements on the pieces like the tiger graphic used here. These Meyer shorts are a good length and a loose fit so my boys can move around easily and not feel too tight in the waist. The soft cotton material is perfect for summer. And the Ralph Lauren sneaker has all the essentials a boys’ shoe should have – non-slip and easy to clean. Love the blue color and the subtle white logo. It’s a great versatile toy that matches multiple outfits this season. “

Carla says: I love the denim fabric of this Burberry dress, and it would make a great transitional piece in my little girl’s wardrobe. I’ll add socks and boots in the winter. My daughter loves animals, so this mini Rodini swimsuit with cute panda print will become her favorite soon. Splash Garden is where you’ll find us this summer, and these chic jelly sandals will be great when you dip in and out of the water.

Laura says: We may be seeing a heat wave, but it’s always a good idea to stock up on fall weather early. This Bradley Trencher is a timeless style that can be passed on after it becomes out of date. I love the classic liner and the detachable lid will prove easy to use. How cute is this t-shirt?! I’m not really that keen on dinosaurs and tractors on boys’ clothes, and I prefer teddy bears. Pair with elegant pants for a birthday party, or with shorts for play. I like the cobalt blue tone too. I spend my life playing cute, and I want my son to be comfortable when he climbs over everything. I love the leopard pattern of this leggings and think it would look seriously cool with an oversized black jacket. They’re unisex too, so it’s perfect for sharing if you have a boy and girl the same age – or a close cousin! “

Andrea says: Blue is my son’s favorite color, so I make sure to take that into account when shopping for it. This is a very stylish hoodie and will prove to be very versatile with our unpredictable weather. My five year old son often wears shorts because they can be styled elegant or casual, depending on the occasion. This beige pair from Burberry is perfect for lunch with friends. I love my son who wears white sneakers, but he’s not allowed to wear them unless we don’t go to the park, because he goes there! It’s perfect for a smart outing to a restaurant or to visit friends.
