The Best Kids Summer Clothes for Sunny Adventures

With the days getting hotter and hotter, we are excited to pull together our favourite Dotty kids Summer clothes, helping you to get ready for the Summer Holidays!

Whether you are looking for light and breezy outfits, classic denim dungarees, throw-on styles, or bright colours this Summer, we have the best kids Summer clothes for you.

Summer is the perfect time to enjoy the great outdoors so we are excited to show you our range of shorts, dresses, and jumpsuits to suit your little ones, no matter what their style.

Here are our favourite kids Summer clothes for sunny adventures:

Random Variables Shorts

We had to start our list of best kids Summer clothes with our brand new print this year, our Random Variables collection!

In a bold, bright blue with colourful patterns, our Random Variables Shorts are a fun print for both boys and girls, making a nice change from traditional blue styles. Featuring red, green, and yellow shapes, these cool shorts definitely give us Summer vibes.

Made of super soft cotton, these shorts are lightweight and breathable, making them ideal for warmer weather. In true Dotty style, they have adjustable straps to better fit your little one as they grow. You can also add a cosy jumper underneath if the weather turns.

We would pair our Random Variables Shorts with our Red, Yellow, or Green Jack Tee for a bright and sunny outfit.

Have a niece or nephew to buy for? These make the perfect gift and something a bit different for their birthday.

Random Variables Dress

If you are looking for kids Summer clothes which are more summery, our Random Variables Dress in Blue is perfect for your girly adventurers. They even come with handy little pockets for collecting small treasures!

With adjustable spaghetti straps and an elasticated chest, our Random Variables Dress has a cosy fit. Made of super soft jersey cotton, this dress is lightweight, breathable, and most importantly comfortable! Our co-owner, Georgie has given our entire Let’s Play range a thumbs up for comfort, verified by her two girls.

“We chose this soft jersey cotton to keep each piece comfortable to wear, and both my girls love how soft these are and easy to throw on. Ideal for the Summer holidays when we are often out and about.”


On cooler days, we like to pair our Random Variables Dress with one of our Jack Tees worn underneath to re-create that 90’s style. Choose from Red, Pale Blue, or Lilac.

Random Variables Cream Jumpsuit

If you love our Random Variables range but want an all-in-one piece that can be easily thrown on, our Cream Random Variables Jumpsuit is the perfect Summer outfit for you!

Shorts and a top in one, our Cream Jumpsuit is cute and comfortable, the perfect travel companion. Made from the softest jersey cotton this jumpsuit makes long journeys more comfortable. It’s also an easy outfit to take them from the airport to the hotel.

We think our jumpsuit works really well as a beach or pool outfit. Simply throw this jumpsuit over their swimsuit or bikini to help protect them from the hot sun. 

Our Random Variables Jumpsuit also features adjustable spaghetti straps and an elasticated chest to better fit your little one as they grow.

On cooler days or air-conditioned transport, simply add one of our Jack Tees or a lightweight jumper to keep them feeling cosy.

Floral Cream Dress

We had to include our Let’s Play Floral Cream Dress to our list of kids Summer clothes! A classic, lightweight, floaty dress in a pretty, floral design makes the ideal Summer outfit. We think it is the perfect ensemble for Summer BBQs, funfairs, and relaxed dining out.

Classic and elegant, our Floral Cream Dress will instantly update your little one’s wardrobe ready for the warmer months. Light and breezy, this dress is ideal for Summer holidays abroad whether your trip includes lots of outdoor adventures, relaxing by the pool, or candlelit dining.

Like our other Let’s Play pieces, this Floral Cream Dress has adjustable spaghetti straps and an elasticated chest to comfortably fit your little one as they grow.

On cooler evenings we would add a little jacket, or one of our Jack Tees to complete the outfit.

Cream Floral Shorts

Love the design of our Floral print but looking for dungarees? Our Cream Floral Shorts are just for you!

With a cream base, featuring a ditsy floral print, these shorts are classic and elegant but still with the usual comfort of a pair of Dottys. Made from breathable cotton, and with adjustable straps, our Cream Floral Shorts can be adjusted to better fit your little one as they grow.

We think that our Cream Floral Shorts make adorable kids Summer clothes, and are a great way to bring their wardrobe instantly into Summer dressing.

Looking for brighter colours? We hear you! Our Floral print dungaree shorts are available in a range of colours including Lilac, Pink, Mint, and for those who can’t decide, Patchwork!

We like to pair our Cream Floral Shorts with our Yellow or Lilac Jack Tee. For something more girly, our Edie Frill Top makes the perfect addition to complete any Summer outfit.

Pale Denim Shorts

Making the classic road trip outfit, our range of Faded Denim dungaree shorts make perfect kids Summer clothes for sunny adventures!

Starting with our Pale Denim Shorts, these have a vintage feel to them giving us pure 90’s vibes. Easy to style and simply versatile, our Pale Denim Shorts are ideal for all those road trip adventures and will go with most items in your little one’s existing wardrobe.

Pair these with our Pink or Red Jack Tee to get the vintage look. These also make the sweetest Summer outfit when teamed with our Edie Frill Top. Styling boys' fashion? We love these with our Maxi White top for a smart, grown-up style.

Stonewash Denim Shorts

Lusting over the classic dark denim of days gone by? We have our classic denim dungaree shorts available in Stonewash too! These are great for elegant style, taking your little ones from outdoor exploring to relaxed dining out, simply change their t-shirt underneath for an instant update. Anything to make life simpler we think!

Our Stonewash Shorts are made from breathable cotton and have adjustable straps to make them super comfortable to wear and ideal for long car journeys.

For true 90’s style, we like to pair our Stonewash Shorts with our Red or Yellow Jack Tee. To glam these up for an evening meal, simply swap for one of our Peter Pan Collars or smart Maxi White Top.

The best part about these kids Summer clothes? You can match their style! Our Stonewash Dungarees are available in adult sizes too.

Pale Denim Unicorn Dress

In true Dotty style, we had to include a sweet dungaree dress in our Faded Denim collection, introducing our Pale Denim Unicorn Dress.

In rustic pale denim, this pinafore dress gives cute 90s vibes for your little ones who like to wear dresses. Featuring cute unicorn underwear and a sweet pastel unicorn lining, our Pale Denim Dress is super fun to wear too!

These also have adjustable straps and include a thin cotton lining making them comfortable to wear and easy to adjust as your little one grows.

Don’t forget to pass these down to siblings! All Dottys are made to be passed down to siblings, cousins, and family friends and even feature a sweet name tag on the wash label for you to note down each proud Dotty owner.

To complete the Dotty look, we would pair our Pale Denim Dress with one of our pastel Jack Tees. Choose from Lilac, Pink, or Mint to sit underneath this pretty dress. Want to glam this Summer outfit up? We would team with our Edie Frill Top or one of our Peter Pan Collars for a nostalgic 90s-inspired ensemble.

Yellow Checkerboard Jumpsuit

We couldn’t complete our list of best kids Summer clothes without including a bold print, and we think our Checkerboard is perfect for those Summer adventures!

In bold yellow, our Let’s Play Yellow Checkerboard Jumpsuit is fun, comfy, and “oh so soft”. Easy to throw on, we think our range of Let’s Play jumpsuits make the ideal Summer companion! Perfect to be worn over swimsuits or bikinis by the pool, or at the beach, our jumpsuits also work well as a cover-up taking them from pool to lunch.

To complete the Dotty look, and for extra protection from the sun, we would team with one of our Jack Tees worn over the top. We like to style our Yellow Checkerboard Jumpsuit with our Yellow or Pink Jack Tee for summery style.

Our Yellow Checkerboard Jumpsuit also comes with adjustable spaghetti straps and has an elasticated chest, helping to better fit them as they grow. Plus it makes them super comfortable too!

Blue Checkerboard Shorts

Loving our Checkerboard print but looking for our classic dungaree shorts? We hear you! Our Checkerboard Shorts are perfect for Summer and come in Blue, Pink, and multi-coloured Harlequin.

With adjustable straps, our dungaree shorts can be adjusted to better fit your little one as they grow. They are also super useful to adjust if you need to add a jumper on air-conditioned transport.

Our Checkerboard Shorts are made of breathable, lightweight cotton so are ideal for warm, sunny days, and make a cute holiday outfit.
