Hothouse floral patterns, neon sunglasses, palm print bikinis… The hot, hot heat of summer has become oh-so-enticing now that we have an excuse to channel Club Tropicana in every aspect of junior’s closet.
Never mind that the mercury levels are sky-high all year round. Our favourite labels are particularly fixated with tropical joie de vivre this season. And who are we to argue? From beach-friendly slip-ons to breezy sundresses, and all forms of accessories for hitting the pool — the best looks for island living are all here for your shopping pleasure.
Figuring out where to go to flaunt the little ones’ OOTDs? Team BAZAAR Junior has rounded up the hottest ideas for living it up the entire summer. We’ve hand-picked a killer selection of child-friendly resorts that offer sun, sand and supervised toddler-adored activities. Of course, these luxury family spots are also ultra-pampering for grown-ups — because who doesn’t love a divine spa treatment and stylish accommodations alongside kids’ clubs and playgrounds?
And you’ll probably want to document every minute of this blissful vacay to the highest Instagrammable standards. So we’ve tracked down the mums of some of Singapore’s most popular kids on Instagram for their personal secrets to make your little stars shine on social media.
Finally, look no further for the best holiday camps and programmes to entertain the little ones. This issue’s shortlist of fun classes and workshops is filled with personal recommendations from parents. In other words, you can be assured that junior will be picking up skills, making new besties and having loads of fun. The only problem is convincing them to go back to school when summer ends.
Good luck with that!
