Top Beach Ready Essentials
Pack your sunhat and make a splash with this season’s summer sandals, totes, kaftans and cut-out swimwear.
Sweltering temperatures call for a number of light cover-up options in the shape of crisp white shirts and printed kaftans. A colourful kaftan is the perfect holiday essential and with the right accessories, it can take you from day to night. For a dressed down look, match with denim cut-offs, a straw hat and a pair of brown sandals, or dress it up with wedges, chunky jewellery and Capri shorts.
Both seaside retreats and city breaks call for a handy tote. A striped straw bag is a great option and one that will allow you to carry all of your holiday essentials whilst on the move.
To protect your eyes as well as your style, invest in an oversized pair of shades. Tortoiseshell styles complete with circular lenses are popular this season and will add a retro edge to a number of summer ensembles.
Trying to style your hair in humid conditions is a chore at the best of times, right? Ditch the straighteners for a multitude of hair slides and bands. Hot-hued hair accessories will add an instant summer twist to an otherwise subtle style.
A panama hat is a great investment for the holiday season, especially if you plan to sunbathe in a tropical environment. The legendary accessory gained its iconic status at the Panama Canal and has graced the heads of fashionistas ever since.
Relaxing by the pool with your favourite music is always a great way to unwind. You can even turn this pastime into a style staple by switching up for a pair of retro headphones in a vivid hue.
From cut-out creations to graphic stripes, summer is all about the swimsuit. For a feminine style, choose a patterned-bow shape instead of a classic strapless top. This will create the perfect mix of chic and contemporary.
Looking stylish by the pool and on the beach requires an on-trend style, which means investing in a designer towel. A timeless striped style towel that won’t take up too much room in your bag is a great option to soak up the sun on.
If you’re planning on attending a few pool parties whilst away, wedges are a much safer bet than towering stilettos. They look equally as good with bikinis as they do with summer dresses and shorts. Plus, they take away the risk of stumbling into the deep end!
