Here comes the sun – the best kids’ hats & sunglasses


Summer is finally here, and those gorgeous sunny days stretch ahead of us. But don’t let the kids run out of the door without sunscreen, a sun hat and a pair of sunglasses. If you’re searching for some brilliant options for the latter two, we have a whole bunch – just click on through. 


If you have children of varying ages, you’re often stuck sourcing different style hats from different stores. Never fear, Acorn Kids has you (and the kids) covered. From trucker caps to sun hats for boys or girls, there are designs for all ages.


While some of us think they’ve never gone out of style, we are loving the resurgence of the bonnet – and Urban Baby Bonnets are an adorable example. They have really great coverage to ensure that sun stays off the most vulnerable parts of a child’s face and neck.


If you like a bit of matchy-matchy going on in the kids’ summer wardrobe, take a look at Babes In The Shade, for a little sun hat-bathers co-ordination.


Young eyes are vulnerable to the sun’s rays just as much as an adults, so it’s really important to ensure they’re protected on sunny days. And it doesn’t hurt if the sunnies are gorgeous to boot, like the amazing range from Sons & Daughters.


One children’s sunnies brand that has stood the test of time is Babiators, and with good cause. Offering 100 per cent UV protection, they’re just as good in the snow as they are in the sun.

Extremely high on the cool scale are Squids and Frankie Ray sunglasses, both of which always manage to come out with new and gorgeous styles each season.
