Does anyone else have pre-teenage girls that are on the hunt for preppy items for the summer months? It took me a minute to realize that the kids are using the term: preppy as a way to talk about cool items on trend at the moment. Never underestimate a tween girl and her ability to find the coolest items on the market these days! I’m constantly in awe getting to watch my daughters express themselves through fashion and the things they like. As a mother, it’s one of my favorite things to see them come into themselves. When it comes to summer essentials for teen girls, everything is in a variety of colors, fun and of course, up to date with the latest trends. These are the preppy summer items your tweens will love!
Firstly, keeping up with the latest styles is a full time job. With summer break nearly here for us, my girls have been on the hunt for both summer camp looks and summer looks in general. New trends that have emerged are fun prints, denim skirts, bright colors as well as pastel shades. Moreover, athleisure is everywhere and we found a romper that is perfect for all day at camp taken to after camp activities and beyond!
Comfort is always key for the new season, but we shouldn’t have to sacrifice style for it. For instance, a baggy t-shirt is comfortable but wearing it with biker shorts or belted as a dress makes it on trend for a great summer. At the moment, we are planning on staying out east all summer, with no family vacation plans. Henceforth, the girls have a whole list of summer styles they want to sport to hang out with friends all summer long!
Secondly, accessories are key to any cute summer outfits! The girls have been into purses lately, which is so fun because those are some of my favorite accessories to shop for! The Lululemon belt bag has been a hot commodity this year and for good reason! It’s a great way to run out of the house with only the necessities and it’s adorable. No to mention the fact that it makes one of the best gifts. They have tons of colors to choose from and they are a good option for a smaller bag.
Furthermore, travel water bottles are another good idea for a summer accessory. They keep you hydrated and they are also the perfect gift! The girls have found a new brand they are obsessed with and I can’t complain because it’s the ultimate summer must-have item. You can bring it to camp, the beach, pool and beyond!
Finally, does anyone else have tweens who are obsessed with skincare? Listen, there are worse hobbies to have! My girls have taught me so many unique details about finding the perfect skincare products for my skin type. If you have any free time this summer, I highly recommend figuring out your teen’s skin type and going on a bit of a shopping spree! It can help with their confidence. More than just a great moisturizer, pimple drying lotion, lip gloss and hyaluronic acid are at the top of my girls’ list for the summer skin they can glow with!
