WE’VE GOT YOU
COVERED

No holiday suitcase is fully packed without a stylish beach cover-up. For maximum sun-lounger to pool-bar appeal, make it this multi-tasking shirt dress

Think of it like this: the less time you spend pulling together outfits for the beach, the more time you have to soak up the sun. That’s where this go-with-anything chiffon shirt dress comes in. A genius summer essential, it looks (and feels) cooler than a sarong or kaftan, and the dipped hemline means it’s ultra-flattering, too. Throw it on over a bold swimsuit (or bikini) for lunch or a mid-afternoon cocktail, and you’ve mastered daytime glamour, minus any effort. Going sightseeing? Just add denim shorts, or wear a slip underneath plus statement jewellery and you’re ready for dinner under the stars.
