Headed on a late-summer getaway? Whether you’re starting your holiday wardrobe from scratch or need a few new additions in your suitcase selection, we’ve collated three beachwear trends that’ll stay relevant now and right through all your upcoming vacations…
1. Artful Embroidery
Embroidery lends a rustic, homespun feel to your heatwave essentials, as well as mirroring the carefree mood of your new surroundings. Taking their style cue from seventies’ silhouettes, long-sleeved midis and boho blouses in pure cotton make the perfect cover-up as you move from beach to bar – we love how the needlework on both pieces are delicate as they are striking.
2. Bold Florals
When it comes to florals prints, we think the bolder, the better. Whether wandering through winding streets or soaking up the sights from sun-bleached rooftops, bigger, brighter blooms promise to stand out from now till the last days of summer. Put your trust in statement-making maxi dresses for sunset drinks and dinners by the coast, and switch to printed camis, white linen and woven accessories when the new day breaks.
3. New Stripes
Summer stripes don’t have to be nautical. From punchy rainbow palettes to clean lines of colour on chalky backdrops, this season’s take on fashion’s favourite trend is far removed from the classic Breton stripes that we all know and love. Find them on wind-blown midi dresses, styling them with sandals as the heatwave takes hold, throwing on a white denim jacket as the cool sea breeze starts catching your shoulders.
