Summer is the time for swimming. Your little guy will want to be just as fashionable on the beach as the girls. Here are some ideas for cool summer swimsuit fashions.
Let’s start with the shorts. The best thing about your little guy is that he can get away with a number of outfits on the beach. Swim shorts are lightweight and made of a material that dries quickly when he is out of the water.
Board shorts are worn by all the surfers but your little boy will like them too. The string is easily adjustable to fit him without elastic to pinch his skin. Board shorts are long enough to protect his knees when kneeling in the sand.
Cargo shorts are also a great fashion piece on the beach. They have elastic drawstring waistbands so the string can stay tucked inside. There are pockets to hold the million and one seashells he’ll pick up on the beach. The material is machine washable and these shorts have a mesh brief inside.
Instead of letting him go topless in the water with his shorts, you can keep him comfortable and rash free with a fitting Rash Guard swimsuit top. The material is breathable and moves with him. Best of all, the material is UV rated to protect him from the harmful rays of the sun.
Rash Guard tops come in a variety of colors and styles. Let your little guy choose the type of top that suits him. Whatever he chooses you know that his skin will be protected in and out of the water.
Younger boys can wear the traditional swim trunks. They allow him to move freely through the water when he swims. These are the same type of swimsuit trunks worn by amateur swimmers in the Olympics. Your little guy can be just as fashionable as Michael Phelps.
For boys that are learning to surf or like the boogie board, outfit them with a wet suit. Wet suits zip up in the front and are made of a nylon/spandex blend that moves with your child. When the water is still a bit nippy, the wet suit will keep the heat in.
As for his wardrobe, choose coordinating separates. Rash Guard shirts come in a variety of colors that match board shorts, swim trunks and cargo shorts. Because the look of boys’ swimwear is so fashionable, you can dress him for the beach even if you stop off for lunch first. No one will know that he is wearing a swim outfit.
You have several options to choose from for your little guy this summer when it comes to swimsuits. Pick at least two if you plan on spending a lot of time in the water.
