How to keep your boys looking and feeling cool as the weather hots up..

Firstly, sorry to everyone who received this post earlier via email with no content! That’s taught me a lesson about leaving my iPad near my one year old!

Anyhow, the sunshine has well and truly made an appearance and my edit of boys’ summer clothes is ready just in time!

My main tip for a stylish boys look is to turn up the sleeves of their tshirts. Makes them look instantly cool. I’d also do the same to their trousers.

This has been a tricky one. The shops are awash with garish, bright, slogany, cartoony, checkered yucky things. I mean, cargo shorts?! Who invented those things!!! Ghastly. It’s literally like they go, “oh it’s summer! Time to roll out the geeky british tourist look for all the boys”. I’m hoping I’ve managed to pull together some cool looks, thank heavens for Mango and Zara, although they did have their fair share of printed tshirts. Avoid Gap at all costs, tried so hard to find stuff in there as they do such good sales. EVERYTHING was hideous

Oh and please do tag or send on any pics of your #hipministyled kiddies 🙂 I love seeing them!
