White jeans are a true summer favourite (mind you, we love wearing them year round). They’re the perfect way to add a lightness to your look, particuarly when paired with bohemian blouses or polished tank tops when the mercury rises. Cloud low loose jeans, €99; www.arket.com.
A basket bag is an easy summer favourite. And we can see why, it’s nonchalant and also practical – many of the traditional basket styles are quite roomy (perfect for a beach towel). This bucket shape by Sézane is an updated take on the trend. Farrow raffia bag, €145; www.sezane.com.
While a blazer is a key piece no matter what the season, there’s something about a summer blazer that feels louche and luxurious, particularly when it’s in a shade of cream or white. This updated version on a classic tuxedo jacket has forever appeal. Summer tux blazer, €335; www.meandem.com.
Whether you love a pool slide or prefer a skinny Grecian-style sandal, one thing is for sure: black or brown leather sandals always look good – and for that reason they come back in every season. The Marisol leather sandals from By Malene Birger are an investment that will pay dividends. Marisol sandals, €330; www.bymalenebirger.com.
By now you’ve surely spotted a great pair of linen trousers in the wardrobe of multiple style influencers. That’s because not only are linen trousers breathable and practical in warm temperatures, the slew of versions coming to the fore the last few years are exactly what we want to wear. Buy a pair now and wear on repeat for summers to come. Linen rich wide-leg trousers, M&S Collection, €36, at M&S.
A silk camisole always looks elegant and effortless which is why it’s the perfect top to pair with shorts or under a blazer come summer. A monochrome option with a lace trim has that something special to it, too. Noma strap top, Second Female, €89, at Seagreen.
The neckline may vary season upon season but a tomato red swimsuit is always in style. Why? It complements both tanned and fair skin tones and the bright colour is an easy way to add some zing to your beach look. We always favour a flattering square neck or V-neck shape. Ruched V-neck swimsuit, €90; www.boden.eu.
