The summer holidays are in full swing, the time when a swimsuit for the little becomes an essential both at home and on holiday. Choose from floral patterned swimming costumes for your little girl, to a swim short. Towels are another essential for the little ones, once they have splashed around in the water - whether that is the sea or in a swimming or paddling pool. Shop the range of swimwear and accessories from our favourite High Street stores below.

shop girls swimwear

From a pink Calvin Klein bikini or swimsuit to a striped two piece from Boden, we have selected the top four girls swimwear that are must haves for the last months of summer sun.

shop boys swimwear

When it comes to little boys' swim shorts, it's all about the statement patterns and bold colours.  We're loving the shrimp patterned shorts at John Lewis and the pair of striped Gap swim shorts at Zalando.

Chosen the perfect swimwear? Don't forget the sun protecting accessories; a baseball cap or a pair of sunglasses will keep the rays at bay. A towelling beach dress is another great essential that will add an extra layer on chilly beach days and act as sun protection.
