The end of summer isn’t fun for anyone. Here’s to making it less painful with cute clothing, functional fashion accessories and more sleep (seriously).
Ten Fashion Products to Help Make the End of Summer Better
1.) Parents know that if you don’t want them to lose it, tag it. Mabel’s Labels is the leader when it comes to totally adorable custom (and affordable) name tags in all shapes, sizes and materials. They make everything from bottle bands and pacifier stickers to clothing and shoe labels.
2.) When it comes to baby and toddler sleep, Full Feedings founder Ann Marks is the child whisperer. Known for her online sleep courses, she recently launched a toddler course that is gold when it comes to getting your little ones sleeping. She also offers email support to help with personalizing her effective method.
3.) Whether your child likes spaceships, unicorns or dogs, Skip Hop has an adorable backpack to fit their personality.
4.) Keep the summer vibes going strong throughout the fall with fashions from the forever on-trend Lilly Pulitzer. Besides their vibrant floral prints you’ll find everything from adorable two-piece looks and dresses to accessories including bags as well as matching mommy-and-me and father-and-son designs.
5.) When it comes to the best water bottles, there’s no beating the form, function and style of S’well. Lightweight and available in a seemingly never-ending range of shapes, colors, sizes and designs, they aim to work double duty to keep your drinks ice cold for up to 24 hours or hot for up to 12 hours.
6.) It might be called “Just Shoes For Kids,” but the e-commerce site stocks so much more than shoes. Their impeccably curated selection includes clothes, toys, hats, sunglasses, hair accessories, backpacks and a stellar assortment of lunchboxes, like this insulated safari-themed one from Soyoung.
7.) Skout Organic Kids Snack Bars are made for kids (though adults will undoubtedly want them in their lunchboxes as well). What makes them unique is that they’re crafted from a short list of plant-based ingredients and actually taste amazing even though most of the bars have no added sugar.
8.) OOLY is the go-to for cool kid pens, pencils, markers and other writing and art supplies, like these glittery ink neon highlighters.
9.) For all the junior players who picked up a tennis habit over the summer camp season: Babolat has solidified itself as a reliable source for racquets, shoes and equipment to keep the game going strong throughout the school year.
10.) POGS Headphones The Gecko are wireless, Bluetooth-enabled headphones that kids will love just as much as parents will appreciate, given their durable build, reasonable price, and volume controls.
