Style Advisor: Out Of Office On

Jet setting to far-flung destinations might be off the menu this year, but thanks to the promise of a hot British summer, holidays are still calling. Whether you’re planning a city break, escaping to the country, or hanging poolside, these four pieces should be first in your case, whatever your destination. Hot girl summer? It’s coming.

THE SUMMER BAG

Every bag collection is in need of a few summer staples. First up, the trusty woven rattan c/o Cult Gaia. Chill enough for the day, compact enough for the night. An always on-trend straw bag never ages - ideal for beach days, poolside hangs and packing in your journey essentials. Prefer a twist to the traditional? Marni’s woven number features rope handles, tassels and the brand’s signature branding – should you forget.

THE PARTY HEEL

After a year spent living in supreme comfort, we won’t be going anywhere without a pair of heels this summer. Gia Couture’s collab with Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has delivered the dream summer design: slip-on, padded and with an eye-catching 10.5 cm heel. The Attico, on the other hand, are introducing a much-needed shot of neon in the shape of their lace-up Mona shoe.

THE STATEMENT SPECS

Sunglasses have found their fun side this season with designers serving up pairs in bright, bold colours and cool new shapes. The Attico’s rectangle frames come in a suits-anyone deep blue, while Poppy Lissiman’s skinny cat-eye shades have taken on the colour of the season: lilac. Prefer things more chill? Opt for Hot Futures’ retro-inspired Almost Famous specs or A Better Feeling’s steel designs.

THE EASY SANDAL

Holiday packing wouldn’t be complete without a pair of summer sandals. Arizona Love’s cult chunky trekkers come in a whole host of designs. Top of our list? These statement-making leopard print beauties will take you from the beach to dinner to wherever else you want to go. Prefer something you can slip your feet into? Rick Owens collab with Birkenstock has provided us with the ultimate sliders complete with branded buckles, chunky trims and slick black leather.
