The Hottest Trends in Kid's Beach Fashion

To ensure our little sweeties hit the sand in style, we have forecasted the season's hottest trends. Think anything bold and bright!

This season is all about lashings of lolly-pop love and punchy prints, with polkadots proving to be a timeless and classic piece of polka-perfection. This season you’ll find a selection of styles featuring adorable frilly accents, tie-die (seriously!) and other bold graphic styles that are making a splash! SKEANIE & uh-oh!  and White Soda show us this season's hottest trends.

Citrus colour crush

The heat is on with super bright block colours and lots of punky-bright shades. Tangerine and watermelon are zesty, sprightly and are set to soak up some attention on the sand. Ensure you balance the punky bright bathers with equivalent footwear. 

Sweet as sorbet

For those sweeties who prefer a shade that’s a little softer, expect to see candy-floss colours including pastel-powder pinks, greens, blues, lilacs and yellows. A pastel palette works best for princesses who are lighter in skin tone as the delicate colouring won’t compete.


We’re making a splashback to enjoy a little retro this season. Take a step back in time with the Tie-Die Tankini. A statement mix of this season’s top pantones- lime, dove and electric pink. The beauty of the tankini is that is can be paired with shorts, a skirt or trousers and go from the coast to the café without compromising on style!


Towels don’t have to be large and dowdy. This season you’ll see a collection of hooded terry towels that will help protect children from the sun and give them a warm layer when the wind picks up.  

Hint of print

For a sweet little treat, hearts have always held their place. For summer 2015, expect to see lots of coloured print and technicolour shades which are a defining key trend this year. This festive season will see much application of bold banding, daisies and sunflowers, graffiti brushstrokes and geometric cubist prints. 

Our kids grow up so quickly these days, including their style! This season their summer wardrobe will avoid the ‘kiddy and kitsch.’ Trends will incorporate soft influences of what we are seeing on the catwalk with contemporary design with flashes of sprightly colour. Ready, set, straight to the beach we go!

SKEANIE & uh-oh! will be exhibiting at Kids Instyle Trade Event at the Royal Hall of Industries & Hordern Pavilion, Sydney (19 – 22 February, 2015).
