With a heatwave sweeping the nation, it’s time to break out the sandals, take off the work shirt and throw on a denim skirt. Whether you’re enjoying a staycation, having a stroll along your local beach or enjoying dinner alfresco style, our personal stylist Linsey Lindley shares her top picks to help get you set for a summer of sunshine.
It’s all about the beach bag
Summer means having to carry all the essentials in your hand bag; sunglasses, sun cream, books, beach towel, purse and not forgetting salt spray to tame those beachy waves…. the list goes on. Upgrade to a beach bag and make sure you have plenty of room for everything for a big day out. Head to Klass for a classic tote bag style or White Stuff for this on trend wicker basket style.
Keep cool, casual and comfy!
Whether you’re exploring a new city, walking along the promenade or just relaxing in your back garden, make sure you’re comfortable yet stylish. A simple and classic top like this folklore inspired chambray top or this off the shoulder striped one from Klass paired with a denim skirt, we love this retro style from French Connection, is the ultimate combo for the sunshine – just add a glass of chilled wine for full effect. Or change it up for some wide leg trousers for a stylish evening look.
