It is that time of the year again, when the schools call for their summer breaks and the kids can finally get some time off from their hectic schedule.

Rearing to go out and play all day, the heat and the sun can do little to dampen their high and excited spirits.

But the mothers seldom share the same enthusiasm, for they worry about the heat and the repercussions that follow.

Anil Lakhani, Executive Director Gini & Jony Ltd helps point out a few easy tips to let your hair down while you kids have some good ol’ fun.

Summer clothing should be kept light.

The colour of the garment does not make much difference, but the weight of it does.

Stick to 100 per cent cotton.

Cotton will ‘breathe’ allowing air to reach the child’s body.

This further aids evaporation of sweat and perspiration.

As a result, the garment will not stick to the skin and cause any sort of irritation.

Avoid tight-fitted clothes.

The clothes should be as light and comfortable as possible.

Moreover it is important to consider the quality of the products as kids skin is much delicate than other.

You could choose, all over print cotton dresses for girls with bright colours or floral prints.

This will keep her comfortable in the heat and also let her enjoy the sun.

Accessorise the dress with a cotton bandana or a hat to protect her.

Cute sun glasses for a day’s outing will only add to her style quotient while protecting her pretty eyes.

If dresses is not what your little one prefers, then pick tees and tops to suit the mood and team them with coloured shorts, jeans or floral print capris.

Bright coloured jeans are a big hit this season internationally.

The jeans are available in a wide array of colours that look nice and pretty when teamed with girlie tops.

For your little boy pick up tees with graphics in bright colours.

Graphics with fluorescent colours are the highlights of this season.

Comic prints are also a big hit with kids.

Give him the theme tee shirts to play the superhero he always wanted to.

Tees are a comfortable option to beat the summer heat and the graffiti on them only mirror their playful and fun nature.

The tees could be teamed up with light weight cotton shirts to add to the style quotient.

The shirt will also protect the child’s skin from direct exposure to the sunlight.

Finish the look with a pair of lightweight denims, bermuda or cotton Jamaicans, and the look is all done.

Accessories like a good pair of sunglasses and head gear like caps and scarves are a good way to keep the child protected from extreme sun exposure
