Summers are almost here and many of us are already planning summer holidays. Vacation time is all about fun and relaxation so choose clothes accordingly. In summer, it’s best to carry light cotton clothes to stay cool and light and it’s the best season to experiment with different fashion trends. Planning a holiday and also buying outfits is not easy. I am sharing a few summer vacation outfit ideas for your family to help you out.

Summer vacation outfit ideas for you and your family –

Women –

Summers are all about wearing cool colours and some of my favourite summer ideas are off-shoulder tops, crop tops, maxi dresses, and light t-shirts. I am a big fan of accessories like hats, caps, necklaces, scarves, belts, and sunglasses. They complete your look and make you look vacation ready. It’s best to go with light colours for the summer like white, soft pink and light blue. If you are going on a beach holiday, you can try bright colours with big prints. I love skater dresses too and they look cute in summer.

You can also experiment with a cute and short haircut to complete your summer look. So, all you need is a good pair of shorts, tank tops, crop tops, skirts, sunglasses, and flip-flops for a cool summer vacation look.


Some good colour combination for men is blue and yellow, khaki and white or blue. Shorts are the best for comfortable travel and holiday. You can also buy chinos in navy, khaki, yellow, and blue. Also, get cotton shirts in white, yellow, baby blue, pink, etc. If going for t-shirts, go for pastel shades. To make it look stylish, you can wear t-shirts under your collared shirts. After all, vacation time is about styling too, right? If you are travelling to a place where it gets cold in the evenings, carry full sleeve shirt or a light cardigan.

Mix it all up with some good belts and a good pair of shoes to complete the look.

Kids –

Kids love playing and it’s best to carry some extra pairs of clothes for them. Choose cotton clothes for kids and avoid anything which is synthetic to avoid rashes due to heat while playing. The fabric should be able to absorb the sweat.

For girls, you can carry frocks, jumpsuits, skirts, and shorts and pair them with cool and light-coloured t-shirts. For boys, carry light T-shirts with shorts and pants and light jackets for evenings. Bermuda and cropped pants are also comfortable for kids.

When it comes to kids, comfort and good quality are important. Instead of going for dark shades, go for light colours. Popular choices for boys are blue, khaki, beige and green for and pink, yellow, white or cream and olive for girls.

Summer travel tips – 

Other than summer vacation outfit ideas, don’t forget to carry sunscreen while going outside, especially when wearing shorter clothes. Another option to avoid tan is to wear full sleeved outfit while going to a beach and also make sure the outfit is loose and comfortable for your body so that you don’t sweat a lot.

An important tip while choosing an outfit is to remember that it’s a reflection of your style and personality. Try making your own style as vibrant and beautiful as possible. If you are looking for easy shopping options, the Phoenix market city in Bangalore is having great options.  They have great offers like free shopping vouchers for women visiting the mall before 31st March.  You can pull this together without spending a lot of money. Their Spring Summer 2019 collection is now in stores. You can shop from over 300 brands.

 I am sure this will help you to get together a variety of different summer vacation outfits for you and your family.
