11 Cool Outfit Ideas for Toddler Boys on a Beach Vacation

Outfit Ideas for a Beach Vacation

Hello mommies, let’s talk about cool trendy fashion for toddler boys when on a beach vacation. I am not a fashion blogger, neither I have much fashion knowledge but I like dressing up my boy.

Not many people talk about fashion for boys simply because there are not many options that boys can experiment with. True! I am a boy mom and I know how difficult it gets sometimes to find a nice outfit for my son. Most of the times I am left with a choice of shorts & tees for summer days and pants & shirts for summer evenings.

So, when it comes to selecting an outfit for my boy, I try not to restrict myself to particular colors or designs. If it looks good on him, it goes in the cart. And, summer is my favorite time for shopping when there’s a lot more choice in colors and prints.

Outfits for a Beach Vacation

I know many of you are already in a vacay mood with holidays around the corner. If you are planning a beach vacation and you are looking for outfit ideas for your toddler boy then you are in the right place.

When it comes to a beach holiday, most people think that only shorts & t-shirts are the most comfortable & stylish options for toddlers. Well, not exactly. I have divided tops and bottoms into 5 categories each which can be mixed and matched on a beach to create stylish looks. The outfit choice may also depend on the time of the day at the beach.


  1. Shirts
  2. T-shirts
  3. Sleeveless Tees
  4. Sets
  5. Dungarees


  1. Denim Shorts
  2. Printed Cotton Shorts
  3. Bermuda Shorts
  4. Capri Pants
  5. Full-Length Pants

11 Cool Looks for Toddler Boys on a Beach Vacation

Let’s create some cool looks with the above options. Check out the pictures below.

Look 1

The most common way to dress up boys for a beach is putting shorts with a cool graphic t-shirt. In my ideas, you won’t see any plain outfits, I like colors. But, that’s my personal choice, if you like plain colors or whites, then you can go with that too. And, when on a beach ditch the dark colors.

One of my favorite looks is a white printed shirt with denim shorts. We choose this look for evenings on the beach when we would take a stroll on the beachside. Or just sit at a beachside cafe and watch the sunset.

Look 3 for a Beach Vacation

This is a common look but looks very cool. A shirt with prints of pineapple or coconut trees all over paired with comfortable cotton shorts. It is a perfect outfit to spend a fun day on the beach.

Another of my favorites is sleeveless tee & shorts combo for a beach vacation. The best thing about sets is you are spared the task of mixing n matching on a holiday.

I buy mostly from Firstcry & Hopscotch. My favorite brand to buy such cool trendy sets is Awabox but their collection is available only on pre-order. Also, their sizes are smaller as per age so do check the size chart before buying or simply pick one size bigger.

This is Nemit’s all time favorite look. Every time I ask him what he wants to wear, he points to the white shirt & printed shorts. I love this combo too, it’s looks super comfy and super stylish.

Another outfit that you can choose for your boy is a checkered shirt paired with cotton pants. These look super cool for an early morning or late evening stroll on the beach.

Look 7 for Toddler Boys

I tried this look on Nemit very recently on our Krabi vacation in January this year. I wanted something in full length but not the pants, something more quirky & stylish. So, here’s the next outfit idea and that is dungaree with a t-shirt.

This one here is again a favorite of mine. A cool sleeveless tee with capri pants, perfect for young toddlers.

Sorry guys I don’t have a clear pic for this look so not adding any picture. But you will get an idea. Simply put a white full sleeve shirt over a colorful sleeveless tee. It is a common yet most stylish look and works in two ways. You can put the shirt on when it gets really hot to minimize any tan or sunburn.

Look 10

I bought Bermuda shorts very recently for Nemit. You can pair the Bermuda shorts with a sleeveless tee or even with a shirt, both these will look super cool on toddlers.

The last outfit idea is an important one which is usually neglected by the parents, the swimwear for boys. If your boy is going to spend the maximum time splashing in the water either on a beach or a pool, choose a nice bodysuit swimwear. It will help cover the body and protect your little one’s sensitive skin from harsh sun rays.

    These are such lovely outfits you have mentioned. It sometimes is difficult to dress up a boy because there’s much fewer options available for boys.
