1. Bolder-than-the-sun Jumpsuits
A ditsy print floral all-in-one like the Floral Spaghetti Strap Jumpsuit is perfect for casual dayime wear with sandals and can be dressed up come evening with statement heels and jewellery. For a bolder look, we’re loving the Frill Sleeve Red Jumpsuit which will set off a tan beautifully with its flattering orangey-red tone. This is one sexy senorita look that brings a flamenco vibe with white frill detail: ole!
2. Summery Palazzo Trousers
Lightweight and airy, a pair of palazzo trousers are perfect for tropical climes. These Green Polazzo Trousers are ideal for exploring and wandering around during the day, while Sheer Palazzo Trousers look a little dressier for balmy evenings and are super-chic teamed with wedges.
3. The Essential Shoe Duo
Your two absolute holiday essential shoes couldn’t be simpler: pick a flat pair of comfy sandals for the day like these Diamante Encrusted Floral Strap Sandals and choose a classic pair of canvas wedges like the Twist Knot Canvas Wedge Sandals for height, comfort and style during the evenings.
4. Throw-over-your-Bikini Kimono
When it gets too hot to handle, protect your skin from the sun by throwing on a beach cover-up like the Fringed Paisley Print Kimono – gorgeous and stylish worn over your bikini!
5. Beach to Evening Dresses
Keep your packing light with a choice of three contrasting dresses: each ideal for daytime wear and dressing up for the evenings. A Graphic Fleur Kimono Style Dress is perfect for walking to the beach in, a Nautical Striped A-Line Dress brings riviera glamour and will go perfect with the Twist Knot Canvas Wedge Sandals at night, while a Frilled & Drawstring Top Maxi Dress is an effortless daytime look and looks gorgeous for sunset dining with bare shoulders and strappy heels.
6. Must-Have Accessories
A beach bag like the Two Tone Shopper Bag is an absolute must-have: it’s big enough to hold your towel and suncreams and looks bang-on-trend with its bright and bold design. A simple necklace like the Two Tone Stones Pendant Necklace will set off an evening dress perfectly while a Wide Brim Hat is essential for keeping the sun off your head and looks stylish to boot!
