If you’re heading to your favourite seaside location, these four summer essentials will ensure are all you need to hit the beach in style.

SHORTS

Shorts are a summer mainstay and judging by the search results of ‘Reese Witherspoon wearing shorts’, they are a go-to summer essential. For a relaxed yet chic vibe, you can’t go wrong with tailored shorts and pretty blouse. Add wedges and a straw bag and you’ve got the perfect long-weekend ensemble.

As a cover-up on the beach or for relaxed evenings at your favourite restaurant, a kaftan is the perennial summer holiday essential for every body shape, style and age.

MODERN RASHIE/ONE PIECE

Brands like Une Piece have morphed the rashie into a one piece that is stylish, sexy and sun safe. Brilliant!
