To the beach
Perfect for transitioning from beach to bar, this By Malina one-piece worn under a sweeping sarong by Coco & Nuts makes for a winning combination. To protect your precious tresses whilst laying on a sun-lounger sipping your cocktail, you can't go wrong with a crochet bucket hat by & Other Stories.
For the hike
For a trek-friendly look which is casual, comfy and trendy all at once, opt for a classic white tee by Filippa K, jersey track shorts from Varley and logo patch New Balances. To keep from squinting in the mid-day sun, style your hiking ensemble with a pair of classic Raybans.
The city stroll
This open-back, linen midi dress by Farm Rio is the perfect choice for keeping cool whilst meandering through unexplored city streets. Pair with classic Superga trainers, a timeless gold necklace courtesy of Maestoso and sunnies by the reigning queen of oversized shades, Victoria Beckham, for a relaxed and well-put-together summer-in-the-city look.

A night out
Irrefutably the best colour to flatter a holiday tan, show off your sun-kissed skin in a white Kendal Jenner-inspired halter-neck mini dress by Cult Gaia. For a hint of romance and a pop of colour, this heart-shaped shoulder bag by Alaïa paired with crystal-draped Simone Rocha earrings add just enough to ensure a head-turning ensemble.
Take off and landing
Beat the baggage restrictions with the perfect carry-on bag by Polène. For a weightless feel when travelling, opt for white, airy styles for ease and comfort – such as Toteme white drawstring trousers or a floral printed tank top by Cos.
Finally, holiday packing would only be complete with much-needed SPF, a travel-sized makeup bag and a versatile linen shirt. As a vacation must-have, this version by Arket is suitable for anything from throwing over a bikini at the beach to being draped over your shoulders during an evening meal or loosely buttoned up for daytime excursions.
