Montecristi Panama Hat
Nothing says holiday chic like a traditional panama hat. Providing vital sun protection whilst also finishing off every outfit, this is a failsafe winter sun buy.
Photographic Print Tote
Large enough to use as hand luggage and to carry your beach essentials, we absolutely love the faded canvas photo print on this bag.
Ray Ban Wayfarers
A classic pair of tortoise shell wayfarers will not only see you through holidays for years to come, but also come handy for the occasional bout of winter sunshine in the UK.
Passport Cover With Slide
Never worry about losing your passport again with this purple calfskin cover. With a pocket for your boarding pass as well, this is organisation at its most decadent.
This red one-shouldered swimsuit is the height of sexy sophistication. The one-shoulder detail is tied, meaning you can undo it for the most even of tans.
Roksanda Ilincic Black Rafiya Swimsuit
Channel your inner 1950’s starlet with this glamorous swimsuit. Sticking to Roksanda’s signature colour blocking style, all you need is a silk headscarf and Jackie O shades to complete this vintage Hollywood look.
Classic Long Skydranger Skinny Dip Kaftan
The ultimate day-to-night ensemble; this long silk, belted kaftan comes in array of dazzling prints and will take you from pool to party with ease.
Bottega Veneta Leather Sandals
Sleek leather thong sandals are a timeless holiday classic. This dark brown pair will look great teamed with denim cut-offs in the day and are also perfect with a printed summer dress for evening cocktails.
Gem Underwired Bikini
This pretty, jewelled bikini has underwired cups for extra support, whilst removable straps allow you to get a completely even tan.
Zimmerman Rebel Animal-Print Cotton Voile Dress
Soft, lightweight and floaty- this dress ticks all the boxes when it comes to daytime holiday dressing.
Christian Louboutin Marina Liege 140 leather wedge sandals
A wedge is the only type of heel you need on holiday. These classic cork-heeled beauties will work just as well with a boho kaftan for the beach, as they will with a white linen cocktail dress for the evening.
