Beach Holiday

Feel-good looks, far-flung places

From the French Riviera to the beaches of Thailand via the islands of Italy, exciting summer destinations call for an equally exhilarating wardrobe full of unique textures, bold colours and vibrant patterns. Make a splash wherever you put your towel down with our vacation edit designed to get you in the holiday mood long before you take off.



Give your wardrobe a taste of the tropical this summer with polos and camp-collar shirts in the season’s must-have floral motifs by the likes of GANT and Superdry. If you prefer a more minimalist look, the military-inspired trend comprised of khaki, olive green and nude tones is great with short-sleeved shirts, oversized shorts and high-tops. Classic sportswear silhouettes by PUMA and Under Armour reaffirm the off-duty look, complemented by lo-fi sneakers and vintage inspired sunglasses. All there is to do now is resist the temptation to check your emails!



Embrace the bikini this season with some eye-catching styles by French Connection and Ted Baker in this season’s must-have yellow tones. Maxi dresses (especially cut-out and strappy styles) are a girl’s best friend when it comes to chic holiday vibes so go for soft summer florals in sheer, floaty fabrics by the likes of Ghost London and Polo Ralph Lauren, and complement the look with wedges and espadrilles. An oversized tote bag is an absolute necessity, as well as a pair of statement contemporary sunglasses to cap off the look.



School’s out for summer! Now the only homework the children need help with is how to pack their beach wardrobe! Keep it cool and simple with fun tees by the likes of M&S and Tommy Hilfiger, but put a smart spin on them with a pair of refined chino shorts. Avoid sand in shoes by opting for flip-flops by Havaianas and don’t forget the essential sunhat!
