STYLISH SIGHTSEEING

Whether you’re off to the beach or indulging in a spot of culture, it’s important to wear something that will keep you cool without compromising on style. Pop a lighter layer in your bag that you can sling on when you need to be a bit more covered up

TAKE COVER

Kimono tops are having a moment this season –
invest in one this summer and you’ll still be
wearing it for years to come

LET LOOSE

Maxi dresses are brilliant for
making a statement with very

and flat sandals to finish
