It can be stressful enough to pack for a holiday for yourself — throw a couple of kids into the mix and the stress is quadrupled!

If you’re wondering what clothing you need to pack for your family holiday, wonder no more. Here at Loofes, we’ve put together a handy kids holiday clothing guide, detailing all the styles that are perfect for your summer vacation.

Polo Shirts

Polo shirts are a great versatile option for holidays. Your kids can wear them while you’re chilling out around the pool during the day, but can also easily dress them up for an evening out.

Keep it light and season appropriate with a pale or coloured option — blue, white or colourful striped polo shirts are ideal for a summer-ready look.


If you’re planning some dressier evenings or meals out during your vacation, a boys shirt is a must. Opt for a classic formal style with a long sleeved shirt, or keep it cool during hotter temperatures with a short sleeve option.

A white or pale blue shirt is ideal for a versatile, summer-ready look, while patterned shirts are the perfect choice to nail a summer holiday vibe.


Dresses are easy to wear and easy to style, making them a fantastic choice for your girls during a holiday heatwave. Whether they wear theirs over swimwear for a casual daytime look, or dressed up for an evening out, a couple of dresses are a must in their holiday suitcase.

Keep it light and summery with colourful options. A multicoloured stripe is ideal for a seasonal look, while a pale yellow will help reflect the sun and keep them cool.

T-Shirts and Vests

T-shirts and vest are some of the most obvious holiday staples, ideal for throwing on over swimwear or for covering up on casual beach days.

Explore practical sporty styles from the likes of Nike, that both boys and girls are sure to adore. Or, for more colourful options, take a look at the Hype kids t-shirts collection. Simply finish with a pair of shorts or a skirt and voila, a comfortable, practical and stylish kids holiday outfit!


Speaking of shorts, across the current kidswear range at Loofes you can explore a variety of boys shorts and girls shorts that will make the perfect addition to their holiday clothing collection.

Choose athletic kids shorts from Nike or Adidas Performance for the perfect blend of quality, comfort and style.


Or course, kids swimwear is a no-brainer for a summer holiday!

If you’re heading off on a family holiday with the kids, you’re no doubt going to be spending a lot of time in the water, both in the pool and on the beach. We’d always recommend taking two or three sets of swimwear for your kids — that way, you’ll always have a dry set to hand!

Explore swimming costumes for girls, and for boys choose from a selection of practical swim shorts — these can double up as shorts throughout the day, saving you much needed suitcase space!

Kids Holiday Footwear

And finally, what footwear should you pack for your kids on holiday? Shoes can take up a lot of space, so get tactical with what you take.

A pair of kids trainers are a must for any longer days spent out and about exploring the local area, or for wearing on evenings out. Trainers can be pretty bulky, however, so get your kids to travel in theirs to save space. Then, invest in a pair of sandals or flip flops for those casual day times around the pool or on the beach.

For further holiday inspirations, be sure to explore the full kidswear range at Loofes Clothing. With an extensive range of boys clothing, girls clothing, boys footwear and girls footwear, you’re sure to find the perfect pieces to see them through the summer in true style.
