Emma Rose Thatcher, Stylist, Emma Rose Style

“I’m not going away this summer so will be teaming this body suit with vintage denim Levi’s and flip flops to bring a little bit of Ibiza to London. It will also work well with denim cut-offs if we’re lucky enough to get some sun. I love the sleeves and back details.”

Hannah Strafford-Taylor, Influencer

“I always love everything by Kalita. Her clothes are not only beautiful but so comfortable to wear and completely timeless. I want to bring the green Brigitte style to Turkey with me – it’s my favourite on-trend colour this summer.”

Erna Leon, Editor, Mercer7

“My item is a silky slip dress. You can sleep in it, go out in it or hang out in your kitchen, still looking chic – the options are endless! If I do go out in a slip dress, I usually style it with a blazer or an oversized jumper or cardigan.”

Hannah Lewis, Stylist, Threads

“I am not usually a dress person, but every summer I love to get just one or two slinky styles that are perfect for events as well as holiday. This style is exactly that – I love the cut outs and the knit fabric. Plus, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has it…”

Hedvig Sagfjord Opshaug, Influencer

“I’m after the Chanel Velcro sandals but they’re not online. So instead it will probably be either Prada’s chunky styles or the Cecilie Bahnsen x Suicoke Maria embellished designs on”

Janka Polliani, Influencer

“Cecilie Bahnsen has a sale on her gorgeous summer dresses so I’m going for one in another colour – I have one in white already. It’s just the perfect summer dress, easy to style for a party or everyday life.”

Alexis Foreman, Creative Consultant

“I love this tunic — it’s so me! In either white or black, it’s the perfect piece for a balmy evening on holiday. I’m also after a black Matteau swimsuit. They’re so chic and not just good on the beach or by the pool — I’d also style with a skirt or loose trousers in the evening.”

Marianne Smyth, Influencer

“For me, it’s the dressy black sandal. I love a summer dress paired down with an elegant flat sandal. I’ve ordered these for my holiday and couldn’t be any more in love – so flattering on the foot and also look great with a pair of boyfriend jeans.”

Libby Page, Senior Market Editor, NET-A-PORTER

“This summer I’ve been searching for the perfect white cotton dress. I wanted it to feel simple but special, perfect for everyday but dressy enough to wear in the evening. It’s so important to me that I shop mindfully and buy pieces with longevity and versatility – and I’ve found that combination in new and emerging brand TOVE. I’ll be wearing mine with easy flat sandals from Saint Laurent and delicate gold jewellery.”

Sarah Corbett-Winder, Stylist, Boden

“I’m after this linen shirt suit from Jigsaw. Fab worn as a suit with tan sandals or loafers, it’s also great worn separately. I love the shorts with a bandeau bikini top and an oversized linen shirt for holiday lunches, and I’d definitely wear the jacket with floral dresses underneath. Such a fab colour and cut – in fact, I’m desperate for this suit!”

Sarah Coonan, Buying Director, Liberty

“I want to spend summer in this orange satin dress by Bernadette. It’s one of those throw-on, wear-anywhere pieces that works with flats for a garden party or with tons of gold jewellery for a night out.”
