Daydreaming of lounging by the pool this summer? With the weather starting to heat up and holiday season almost upon us, there is no better time to start looking ahead and shopping for your summer look.
Put your stamp on the summer with these fab style choices and get ahead of the summer rush- here’s our top tips for accessorising like a boss this summer.
That’s my Bag
Travelling in style is vital. Picture yourself walking through the airport- you can almost taste that cocktail and see the shimmering water of the pool.
Is your bag some pedestrian everyday bag, or have you upgraded your look with one of these super stylish bags? First up is this instantly recognisable Cath Kidston Classic.
Whilst Cath Kidston has always had their adorable red and polka dot line there has never been a better time to grab this vintage style, with polka dots dominating the spring/summer style profile.
It doesn’t hurt that the oilcloth exterior is super easy to clean and amazingly durable, meaning you won’t be bringing half of the beach back with you in the bottom of your bag. Shop this beautiful bag here!
For a more cutesy look or a more adventurous hiking holiday, this backpack is the perfect blend of form and function. The grey and silver colour pallet adds an edge to any outfit, and is neutral enough to work all year round.
With summer just around the corner, now is the perfect time to grab yourself this sophisticated backpack for the summer and beyond.
Mad As A Hatter
With the resurgence of vintage styles we’ve seen in the last few years it’s no surprise that classic summer looks are peak fashion at the moment.
Big floppy sun hats, a cosmopolitan trilby, and everything straw will be going in every girls holiday suitcase this spring/summer season to keep you looking your glam best. Here are our top picks for your summer sun hats!
Go with a classic smaller style for a super cosmopolitan look with this beautiful straw trilby.
This is a versatile and hard working accessory that you can wear throughout a mild spring and a hot summer, combining equally well with full beachwear as it does with a classic jeans and t-shirt combo. Grab this super versatile hat here.
If you really want to make a statement on the beach this summer, check out this amazing wide brim stripe sun hat from Ted Baker. The mix of synthetic and fabrics is perfect for keeping a cool head this summer and the wide brim is the best way to keep any nasty sunburn from your nose and cheeks.
Pair this with pastel pinks, oranges and reds to really stand out this summer and embrace your inner celeb. Grab this beautiful sun hat here, with 49% off retail!
For a more understated look, this gorgeous chiffon band floppy hat is perfect for chilling by the pool and looking your best. The mid sized leopard print bow adds a little bit of flair to your beach chic without being restrictive to colour schemes.
Whilst this sun hat is less versatile than the trilby and less of a statement piece than the Ted Baker sun hat, it has a timeless look that makes it stand out on its own. Shop it here to add some elegance to any summer outfit!
Sunglasses. Need we say more? The best way to block out the sun— and the haters— is with a stylish pair of summer sunglasses. This season seems to be leaning towards a more rounded lens style, and here are the best of the bunch!
This style of sunglasses gives you a classic style and is the perfect way to add a touch of continental class without the glasses being too domineering or overpowering.
For high style and to really get your Audrey Hepburn on, these Ray-Bans are perfect for a huge summer style up.
The 100% UV protection lenses are perfect for sunbathing and walking around in bright sunshine, and the understated tortoiseshell patterning looks stunning when the light shines through the frames.
