GLOBAL GLAMOUR 

The artisanal trend gets a summer makeover in this perfect broderie anglaise cotton top, £245 by Pinko at Harvey Nichols. Easy to wear, simple to style with jeans or white linen shorts, it’s your go-to piece for the long hot days ahead. 

VISIONS OF BLUE  

There’s nothing quite like a new pair of sunglasses to make you feel like you’ve kicked off summer the right way. Paul Smith’s Deep Navy ‘Austin’ sunglasses, £235, will give your wardrobe a major upgrade. 

SANDALS ENVY 

Towering espadrilles, denim and studs: what’s not to love? These classic-with-a-twist Rockstud 100 wedges are by Valentino Garavani, £515 at Harvey Nichols. 

SHOULDER CHIC 

Could this be the most beautiful beach bag in the history of fashion? We think so. The Stella McCartney Falabella faux suede tote, £720 at Harvey Nichols, is reversible for those days when you fancy switching up colours 

THAT’S A WRAP 

We love the indigo beauty in this Paul Smith ‘Button’ scarf, £135. In pure silk, it’ll keep you cool when the temperatures rise. Ideal for travel: tie it to your bag for extra style points. 

SUMMER IN THE CITY 

In icy white, the Saint Laurent Teddy canvas and leather tote will give great value at summer parties for years to come. Goes with everything + glams up any outfit = instant reward. This statement piece is £1,245 at Harvey Nichols. 

POOL SIDE 

Big on comfort and with timeless good looks, these Tommy Hilfiger new season leather slides, £80, will take you from Spring to Summer. Just add jeans or swimwear and you’re ready to go.  

STYLE TO THE MAX 

A maxi dress is a must for the new season, dressed up with heels or down with barely-there sandals for off-duty days. This gorgeous, gauzy 70s-inspired one from Free People is £130 at Harvey Nichols. 

DENIM ADDICTION 

Hardest-working hero in your SS19 wardrobe? A white denim jacket. From festivals to flights, beach to bar, the classic jean jacket works every time. Tommy Hilfiger  has a sleek update, the Veronika £110 – with added stretch. And breathe… 

THINK PINK 

Summer calls for luxe linen in ice-cream shades and the Dakota midi dress from Tommy Hilfiger, £140, fits the bill with a flattering tie-waist and cute side pockets. Get ready for compliments.
