Anagram-Logo Leather-Trim Woven Basket Bag, £495 | Loewe

I’m a sucker for a basket bag – especially one by Loewe. During the summer I always opt for bags you can just grab and run out the door with. Plus, the unpredictable UK weather means it has to be big enough to throw a cardigan in.

Tie-Detailed Shirred Organic Cotton-Poplin Maxi Dress, £400 | Matteau

This beautiful Matteau organic cotton shirred maxi dress is perfect if you’re attending a wedding or have a special occasion coming up. When it comes to investing in designer items, it’s best to opt for something you can wear time and again. Team this dress with gold chunky heels and delicate earrings.

Eleftheria Jelly Sandals, £89 | Ancient Greek Sandals

For summer shoes, I always want something simple and sophisticated that I can team with just about everything in my wardrobe. These Ancient Greek sandals are the perfect pair for everyday – no fuss, no frills. Wear with your favourite pair of linen trousers and a white t-shirt and you’re good to go.

Keshi Pearl Bracelet, £170 | Monica Vinader

Jewellery elevates every look, and pearls are having a moment right now. This beautiful bracelet can be worn on its own or, for maximum impact, stacked with other bracelets and a pearl necklace. I’ll be wearing mine with a white bandeau top and denim shorts.

Embroidered Silk-Twill Wide-Leg Pants, £485 | Totême

Each season, Totême comes out with yet more elegant, simple pieces. These embroidered silk-twill wide-leg pants are the perfect choice when you want to look casual, but still put together. Wear them with the matching blouse, or opt for a simple white tank and sling-backs. 

Available at

Lorin Linen Top, £80 | Reformation

At this time of year, I’m partial to a crop top or two. Whether it’s a day out in the city or a day at the beach, this Reformation linen style is ideal. Wear it with trousers so there isn’t too much skin on show.

Lagoon Dot Leather Sandals, £905 | Bottega Veneta

I don’t wear heels that often, but when I do they need to be show-stoppers and I tend to opt for neutral tones that can be worn with most of my existing wardrobe. Whether you want to wear them with a dress or wide-leg trousers, these Bottega Veneta wraparound heels work for any occasion.

Available at

Belted Linen Shorts, £65 | & Other Stories

Linen shorts are a no-brainer when it comes to easy summer dressing. I recommend sizing up with these shorts for a slightly more relaxed feel – you can always tighten the waist with the built-in belt. They work brilliantly with an oversized white linen shirt, flat wrap around sandals and my favourite basket bag.

Cat-Eye Acetate Sunglasses, £290 | Celine

Statement sunglasses can transform any outfit and I always go for earthy hues – usually white or forest green. The cat-eye shape of these ones really adds an elevated feel to your look. You can always add a pearl sunglasses chain if you’re feeling extra. 

Available at

Triangle Bikini Top, £17 | ARKET

Arket nails stylish, affordable swimwear every summer. You can’t beat a classic triangle bikini and his nautical-inspired two-piece is great for a hot holiday. Add a white sarong, a neutral straw hat and classic Havaianas. 

Available at

Luna Premium Suit Waistcoat, £120 (was £158), Reiss

Have a fancy party to attend? A lot of us are set on auto pilot when it comes to events and always opt for dresses. But a fitted suit or tailored two-piece can be cooler. This Reiss waistcoat would look amazing with the matching trousers, a sleek ponytail, a red lip and your favourite heels.
