7 Kids' Swimwear Brands You Need This Summer
Now that the weather’s warming up, it’s time to plan the Best Summer Ever:
Step 1: Book the island getaway you’ve been dreaming about for months (and save some sea turtles while you’re at it).
Step 2: Stock up on fun beach essentials, and a pool inflatable or two.
Step 3: Invest in beautiful kids swimwear. Yes to summery colors and fun prints – NO to cartoon characters and monokinis. There’s nothing like a fresh, on-trend swimsuit to really put you in vacation mode… and a pair of Paw Patrol trunks to spoil your IG feed (or family album, if you’re old school).
Here are some of our favorite kids swimwear brands:
Olivia + Ocean
If summer were to have an official print, it would be gingham… or maybe palm leaves... polka dots? Olivia + Ocean has them all, and then some, in their line of high waist bikinis and one-pieces. And if you’re into matching with your mini, they’re releasing a line of swimsuits for moms in their most popular prints! (Check out their adorable “I Love Mom Bods” campaign.)
We’ve been in love with Minnow Swim ever since they launched. Their simple swimsuits in soft colors are a refreshing break from the bright neon suits all brands seem to make. Our favorite girls’ styles include the Stripe Ruffle One Piece and Tan Gingham Bandeau Set. And for boys, we adore the Doodle Boardie – how rad is that print?
If you want something unique, check out Tiny Cotton’s quirky swimwear. From color block swimsuits to retro striped trunks – and the CUTEST swimming cap in the universe – your kiddo will have all the makings of a Wes Anderson hero(ine).
Rylee and Cru
We’re huge fans of Rylee and Cru’s line of basics for babies and kids – we love the muted color palette and dainty prints by founder/illustrator Kellie Murray. Their swimwear line is just as swoon-worthy. Make sure to snag the off-shoulder Sand Dollar one-piece, or the sage Rolling Waves (pictured above) before they sell out!
Bobo Choses’ SS18 collection “Neverending Summer” totally lives up to its name with its retro styles & color palette. Check out the 60s-print Banana Swim Trunks, or the ribbed Sun Swimsuit, a total throwback to 1970s Malibu. Will summer really end if you’re wearing yellow terry poncho? I don’t think so.
Hugo Loves Tiki
Hugo Loves Tiki = PRINT EXPLOSION. Some highlights from their lookbook include yellow trunks with smiling pink seashells, rainbow-stripe ruffle bikinis, and animal prints galore! (I spy seahorses, flamingos, jellyfish and octopuses.)
Parisian brand Pacific Rainbow is all about classic swimwear. We love the simple cuts (no-frills, literally) that look elegant and practical. We’re excited for this season’s collection of pastels – the pale pinks, yellows and blues are so dreamy, you’ll need #nofilter.
