Is the Out Of Office officially ON? And the aeroplane about to take OFF? If so, check out my personal edit of everything you need to look effortlessly cool as you hit the beach this Summer. From Riviera-inspired headwear to cool-by-the-pool cover ups and gorgeous straw baskets to store your Summer essentials, walk this way to soak up the sun in style... PS I’ve included prices here but many of these items may well have gone into sale (or event sold out) by the time you read, so be sure to check!
Turn heads as you sashay along the sands in a super stylish cover-up. These playsuits, kaftans and dresses make perfect daywear that will take you from beach to bar.
Complete your beach outfit with a stylish straw hat... choose from a straw visor, cool Fedora, pretty Panama or my personal favourite, oversized for maximum elegance and sun protection - tick, tick!
BEACH (BAG) PLEASE!
If there is one accessory you can’t ignore for summer holiday wardrobes, it’s handbags! This season brands have seriously kicked their handbag game up a gear and we are right here for it.
Since Jane Birkin first wowed in THAT oversized straw beach bag back in the 1970s, straw beach bags have been the go-to each summer. Here at The F Words, we are loving this season’s modern take with their circular shape and the electric designs are giving me serious bag envy - one of each please!
Even if straw bags aren’t your thing, this season’s selection is so vast that everyone from the handbag-obsessed to the handbag-reluctant can find something they are looking for…
Walk this Way
Protect your toes (& pedi!) from hot sand and pebbled beaches in super cute flip-flops or slides. It's hard to beat a pop of colour and metallics are officially a neutral that work with everything in your wardrobe!
The Beach Towel
Spot your sun lounger from the waves with one of these gorgeous beach towels in velvety soft textures and tones that accentuate your tan, obvs.
I'm totally packing one of these cute fans for the most glamorous way to keep my cool on vacation!
