Budget-Friendly Clothing Basics That Let Your Kids Be Kids

Remember summer as a kid? No school, warm weather, riding bikes, climbing trees, and getting dirty. So much of summer was about playing. We kept “play” at the forefront when we rounded up this list of the cutest summer basics for kids. Yes, so many kids’ clothes today are adorable and Instagram-worthy, but sometimes you need kids’ clothes that can stand up to the wear and tear of summer play.

Consider this almost like a budget-friendly kids’ capsule wardrobe with plenty of mix-and-match options, patterns to hide stains, pockets to hide treasures, and pull-on styles for kids’ comfort. Plus, if your kid puts a hole through the knee of their leggings or stains their shirt with a melted cherry popsicle, it won’t be that bad.

Kids will be kids this summer, just like we were way back when—shop our favorites below.
