1. All the Trimmings
The crisp blue waters of your next destination serves as the perfect backdrop for summer’s most flattering silhouette: the midi dress. Taking you from beach days to afternoon strolls in cobbled streets, this pure cotton piece in navy comes with white ric-rac trims, embroideries and pom-poms for a little extra texture. Team yours with wedges.
2. Delicate Blooms
Hailed as a heatwave essential, cami tops can be easily elevated with a few subtle details. Effortless and easy to wear, this strappy style is decorated with small floral embroideries and tasselled ties on sun-bleached blue, making it more than a basic buy. Tuck it into the waistband of a white midi skirt made from pure linen – the perfect fabric to keep you cool on warm summer days – and accessorise with a pair of shimmering silver sandals and a simple straw hat.
3. Bohemian Embroideries
Whether walking barefoot across white sands or watching the sun go down from a rooftop, a crisp white dress is a must-have for long summer days that turn into starry nights. Make yours work for all hours with a floaty mid-length silhouette, artfully embroidered with intricate patterns in ruby-red hues. Layer it over a matching bikini and embellished sandals.
4. Print Clash
Blue and white are the favourite colours of coastal escapes but there is a way to wear them with just a subtle nod to nautical styling. Combining a two-tone prints with a foil-effect finish, this bikini puts a modern twist on the classic trend – we love it clashed with this woven beach bag. Complement the sea-blue palette with a pair of denim culottes that you’ll be wearing right through to the last days of summer, and lift the look with a pair of strappy sandals in metallic gold.
5. Eclectic Embellishments
The easiest way to boost your beach-to-bar look? Just add a statement bag. Standing out for all the right reasons, this oversized style is embroidered with medallion motifs, and decorated with pom-poms, fringing and a tassel detail – plus it comes with more than enough space for your getaway essentials. Let it pull all the focus with a breezy white blouse, denim shorts and simple sandals.
