The summer dress


A great summer dress that can go from day to night is a true holiday multitasker. Want to wear a dress to happy hour? Wear a midi dress. Want to go sightseeing? Wear a middi dress. There’s really no summer holiday scenario these styles won’t see you through. If you invest in something a little more luxe, dress it down with minimal sandals and a beachy bag to keep things casual for daytime. Come evening, pile on the accessories and slip into strappy heels.

 

 

 




Swimwear

 

Beach holidays mean spending a lot of time in your bikini, so pack styles you can mix and match. Black designs and colour-block separates can be easily paired with contrasting bottoms in of-the-moment patterns. Not into bikinis? There are plenty of flattering one-pieces on offer for chic beach looks, Even better, some of our favourite swimsuits can double as tops or bodysuits, offering more bang for your buck and a lighter suitcase. Win win.




 

 





Cover-ups

Ah, kaftans. The summer saviours that give us some stylish coverage between paddles. From floaty kaftans to lightweight beach dresses and classic linen shirts, these pieces look great on the beach and by the pool. Heading to the bar or off on a sightseeing trip? It’s still important to stay shady and avoid getting pink shoulders – just add some strappy leather sandals, statement earrings and a chic straw bag to amp up your beach babe look.



 

 
 
 

 

 

 

Wardrobe essentials


While we love the summer trends, no wardrobe is complete without the essentials. They’re the items that you turn to in order to create almost every outfit, from the simple white t-shirt to breezy linen shorts. Opt for simple pieces in palettes that you won't get tired of, think white, black and earthy neutrals. Finish off casual looks with oversized beach bags and your signature shades.

 

 

 




Accessories

 

What's a beach holiday without a selection of sunshine accessories? We never travel to warmer climes without a trusty pair of sliders and this season, our styles come in every shade. When it comes to beach bags, choose one that'll suit your surroundings. We're all about natural straw styles and roomy totes for transporting your warm-weather essentials. Footwear-wise, you really can’t go wrong with classic slip-ons but we also suggest packing a heel, be it a wedge or kitten heel for something a little more luxe for an evening. Don’t forget to pack a pair trainers if you’re planning on doing any outdoor activities.



 

 





Poolside essentials

What's just as important as looking good on a holiday abroad? Kicking back poolside and being equipped with the right essentials. From playful beach towels to the novelty inflatables your Instagram feed can't resist, we have all bases covered. Think toucans, sippers, straws, floats and an extra dose of fun this summer. We promise that you’ll love these must-haves this summer and next.



 

 
 
 

 




Holiday beauty

 

The summer can be tough on our skin and we all want that natural holiday glow. But how do we get it and stay safe in the sun? Find a lightweight suncream that is right for your skin for protection during long days on the beach and when the evening comes, top up your colour with a layer of our favourite fake tans. Finally, complete your beauty regime with a light application of bronzer to your cheekbones, nose and chin. And voilà, you've nailed the golden goddess look.
