The Checklist: Summer Staples
Warmer days have come at last! With summer on the horizon, it’s finally time to dive into some joyful holiday-inspired dressing, whether that’s for swanning around in the sunshine, or enjoying an escape further afield. Try layering swimwear with ready-to-wear, be that an easy, breezy summer dress, or some classic cutoff denim shorts. Finish the outfit with some sleek sandals and brightly painted toes.
1. Stylish Swimwear
What’s your swimwear personality? Perhaps you’re in the mood for something skimpy this season, in which case try Frankie’s Bikinis, Louisa Ballou and Isa Boulder for playfully cheeky bikinis. For something more muted, Form and Fold, Marysia and Hunza G blend size inclusiveness with fashion for styles that are both sleek and supportive, executed in elegant and flattering neutral tones. For all out beach glamour, Oserée is the name to know - make like Rihanna in their glittering sequin bandana bikini, or try designer favourites from Burberry, Gucci and Pucci.
2. Easy Breezy Dresses
The easiest summer outfit solution? A do-it-all dress. Try these effortless essentials to add a beachy twist to a weekend outfit (think denim jacket and sandals) or throw over swimwear for vacation-ready dining or a trip to see the sights. Either way, these airy fabrics and cheery florals will transport your brain to the beach, no matter where you are.
3. Short And Sweet
The onset of summer heralds the start of shorts season. Baring one’s legs after a long winter might seem intimidating at first, but finding your perfect match when it comes to summer shorts is guaranteed to ease the transition. For the classics amongst us, denim favourites from AGOLDE, PAIGE and RE/DONE have you covered. For the fashion-forward, knitted shorts are this season’s trend - so try styles from Jacquemus, Isa Boulder and sherris. For something sleek and sporty, cycling shorts are always a winner.
4. Sleek Sandals
Put your summeriest foot forward in a pair of stylish sandals, whether that be chunky chains from JW Anderson and Bottega Veneta, or sleek slip-ons from Gucci, Saint Laurent and Castañer. Heels or flats, colourful or neutral, the perfect warm weather footwear will be your go-to all summer long.
