Find your Perfect Summer Shorts
Here at Dotty HQ, we love helping you find the perfect outfits for your little one’s unique style. We know that fashion should not just be about practicality and comfort, although these are super important too! But also a way to express you and your little one’s unique style and personality. That’s why we love making lots of different designs and prints to give you plenty of choice.
With so many colourful designs to choose from, we wanted to give you a fun quiz to help you (and your little one!) choose the perfect Summer shorts for you.
Now you’ve taken our Cosmo-inspired quiz, find your perfect Summer shorts for your little one’s unique style with more details below.
Pastel Summer Shorts
Inspired by make-believe worlds, candy floss, and other sweet treats, we have lots of different designs within our pastel colour palette.
We could not complete our Spring/Summer 23 collection without a mythical creature or two! These sweet cream Summer shorts feature little unicorns in a range of pastel colours, and are perfect for your creative little monsters.
If you are a big fan of this print, take a look at our Pale Denim Unicorn dress which comes with a cute pair of knickers in this sweet print.
B: Frill Shorts
For something a bit more girly and definitely your mini fashion trendsetters, our range of Pastel Frill Shorts are perfect for all sorts of sunny adventures!
Available in Pink, Mint, and Lilac, these cute shorts with frill detail are perfect for girly girls, or those who love outfits which are cute and pretty.
C: Tie Dye
Our range of Tie Dye shorts are perfect for beach exploring. Available in two colourways, Rainbow and Blue, these Summer shorts really need to be seen to see how cute they are!
With a subtle, almost shimmery finish, they are the perfect outfit for all your little mermaids and mermen.
Visit us in our Lymington shop to try these on, they really are super cute in person, and ideal for those who want to be fashionable but without standing out too much in the crowd. With a subtle colour palette, they are a sweet and simple design.
Bright Summer Shorts
D: Ice Cream
As the name suggests, our range of Ice Cream shorts were inspired by the bright colours of Summer sorbet.
Choose from Sky Blue, Green Denim, or Sunshine Yellow to bring a lot of colour to your little one’s wardrobe. You will definitely be able to spot your little ones out and about in these bright colours!
Pair with one of our soft Jack Tees in a matching colour to complete the look. Or go for a contrasting colour to create a more striking statement.
E: Tonals and Colourblocks
If you like bright colours, and something a bit different, then our range of Tonals and Colourblocks Summer shorts are for you!
These really are quite bright and fun. Visit us in our Lymington shop to see these in person, they are very popular.
For big fans of the new Barbie movie, our Tonals collection is definitely for you. Choose from Bright Pink, Green, Purple, and Blue, and with a patchwork style design, these Summer shorts are for the real trendsetters.
Looking for something even more avant garde? We’ve got you! Our Colourblocks collection, available in two colourways, Primary and Pastel, are for those who really love to stand out in a crowd and make a statement with their outfit.
These are super popular in our shop so if you love them as much as we do, make sure to get your size while we still have stock. They are selling out quickly!
Bold Print Summer Shorts
Our Checkerboard collection has been one of our most popular designs of Summer shorts this season and it’s easy to see why!
Inspired by the cool skater style of the 90s and early 2000s, these shorts are a real fashion statement for all your mini rockstars. Just add some hi-tops, and one of our Jack Tees, and you are good to go. This cool print is available in Blue, Pink, and Harlequin.
Looking for something a bit different? Our brand new Let’s Play range includes this cool checkerboard print in bright yellow with a romper style. Made from super soft cotton, and with plenty of room for movement, our Checkerboard Jumpsuit is perfect for comfortable sunny exploring.
Classic Summer Shorts
G: Otto Stripe
As a British brand we had to create a design which is classically British and our Otto Stripe is just that. This is one of our staple collections that has been carried over year after year due to it’s longlasting style.
Fine stripes make the Otto design classic and flattering on both boys and girls at any age. These really are a classic Dotty design and a staple piece for every little one’s wardrobe.
Want something even cuter? Our Pink Stripe Shorts have the same classic longevity of our Otto Stripe but with a splash of colour! Still subtle with fine stripes, this design looks even more adorable on, and is super versatile for days out exploring, or chilled days at home.
Country Summer Shorts
Inspired by meadows filled with bloom, and cute English teasets, we have gone back to our British roots with our Florals collection. Featuring a ditsy floral print, these Summer shorts are sweet, delicate, and full of joy, just like your little ones!
Choose from Mint, Pink, Lilac, or for those who can’t pick just one colour, our Patchwork design. Brand new for this year, we also have Cream available for the ultimate English Rose fashion style.
Pair with one of our Peter Pan Collars for a cute, country look.
