What could be better than stripes? Well, stripes and florals, obviously. @chloe_ali.j and @lauraxborges have the ’50s-style-sundress look locked down. The structured silhouette of an A-line skirt is the picture of femininity and the stripes contrast well with the more formal floral print, making this outfit ideal for a special occasion. Slip on a pair of flower sandals and a baby pink cardi, and you’re good to go.

The beautiful @missroyaltybrown shows us how ruffles are the next best thing on a dress. Emulate her look with light, layered dresses in delicious ice-cream hues of bubblegum and strawberry. Featuring sequin-dotted bodices and gathered tulle, these make for the perfect summer party frocks.

@engjiandy knows how to play a formal look down by sticking to the basics. Khaki shorts are a perfect substitute to beating the heat, and when paired with a collared shirt, are a sure-fire summer style winner. You could also keep it casual like @miguelzinhocastro with a pair of plaid shorts and a graphic-print tee. Want to up the cool factor even more? Try snapping on some retro suspenders!

Want to nail sports luxe? Embrace the trifecta, just like monochrome master @kayden_0611: joggers, a statement tee and a striped hoody are all you need to ace the athletic appeal. Plus, velcro-strap high tops make getting ready effortless – no more fuss.

The on-trend twin set has definitely not been ignored in the kids’ department. Copy @samuwilliams’ adorable ensemble with a matching crop top and skirt with pretty broderie anglaise edging, made modern with soft denim-like cotton. Finish off the look with glitter pumps and a sparkly, fluffy unicorn accessory, because, well, why not?!

When it comes to the ultimate party dress, the more embellishments, the better. Take your cue from @missroyaltybrown’s look with this little floral number. Featuring a strip of gathered ribbon, pleats and a structured trim, it’s the bee’s knees. Just throw a matching baby pink cardi over your shoulders, and you’re good to go.

For the rugged little adventurer, hardwearing denim is the answer to all your mending woes. Shorts or jacket? What about both? You decide! Add a pair of durable bright red Converse like @davi_wener or keep it more casual with slides and a moonbag over the chest just like @kayden_0611.

Follow @babyjanou’s lead and give your denim-on-denim look a spin with a structured striped denim jacket. Pair with lace-edged denim shorts, a pretty statement tee and Converse high tops for a look that screams casual-cool.

@galini_ioanna_fay has the right idea with a carefree and feminine sundress. Get her look with two embroidered numbers: a more formal cinched white smock or a cold-shoulder dress. Pair with metallic diamanté jelly sandals (as ideal for the beach as they are for a party!) and a cute kitty watch.
