No matter where you may find yourself this summer or school holiday, make sure your kids’ style matches both their personality and what they will be keeping themselves busy with while you relax.
South African summers in each city are as diverse and varied as the people who live in them. To make this summer as comfortable (and stylish) as possible for your active kids, we've put together a city-inspired lookbook.

Cape Town

V&A Waterfront skate park

Skater style is all about wearing comfortable, movable and functional clothing. These loose-fitting shorts are unrestrictive and perfect for trying out some tricks. Pair them with an oversized T-shirt and a bucket hat that not only looks super stylish but also shades the face. The most important part of skater style is the shoes, and you can’t go wrong with a pair of Vans.

Red Bus tour

If you find yourself on one of the Cape Town Red Bus tours for a day outing, you need an appropriate outfit. Stretchy denim shorts are comfortable to sit and walk around in; pair with a casual, breathable T-shirt for the ultimate summer look. Since Cape Town is known for having four seasons in one day, make sure you take a hoodie along should the Cape Doctor decide to blow in. Sneakers or trainers are a must for all the walking and exploring you’re going to be doing.

Segway tour

Sightseeing is always more fun (and easy on the feet) when you do it on a Segway. Casual denims paired with a T-shirt and sneakers is a great combo. A cap will seal the deal, and also protect your face from the sun.

Bike Tour

An athleisure look is perfect for when you decide to cycle around Durbs to take in the views. This lightweight jersey co-ord set is the perfect combination of function and style, with its on-trend print and hood for when you need it. Flip-flops ground the look and help keep you cool. Sunnies and a watch add the perfect final touch.

Maboneng Market

Spending a day at the market means lots of walking, usually under the hot sun. These flip-flops are cool and casual especially when paired with a relaxed shorts-and-tee look. The rips in these denim shorts make it trendy and keeps the rest of your outfit current.

Game Drive

If you’re on a bush holiday then there’s no shame in dressing the part – clichés and all. Neutral colours of tan, camel and camouflage are your best and most stylish bet. As for shoes, flip-flops are a comfy and cool option, since you won’t be walking around in the dusty veld, and a pair of trendy sunnies is essential if you want to actually peer into the glaring distance to spot the Big Five.
