10 Fashion Essentials for a Summer by the Beach or in the City

Your guide to our favourite additions to your wardrobe!

1. Floral Dress

Whether you're staying in a city or going on a beach holiday, these pieces will help you have your most stylish summer, no matter where you find yourself:

Yellow Floral Dress, R1799, Country Road

2. V-neck top

V-neck tops like these are a staple this summer. Pair with the leaf-pattern wrap skirt to mix your prints or the buckle detail heel (no.10!) for a night out on the town.

3. Jumpsuit

A cool, effortless and simple addition to your summer wardrobe. Try it with a wide brim hat (like the one further down our list) for a chic look which will shade the sun at the beach or look great for a brunch date in the city with your best friend.

4. Wrapover Skirt

The best thing about the wrapover skirt for summer is that it’s so easy to wear and also comes in many different colors, patterns and textures which creates variety in so many outfits. We’ll be pairing it with a simple halter neck top to create a super sophisticated look.

5. Everyday slide

These are super elegant for summer. Wear with a tailored pair of shorts and a t shirt for a minimalist outfit approach to a hot day in the city or by the coast.

Slides, R249, Cotton On

6. Wide brim hat

Having a relaxing day at the beach or the pool? Pair your poolside looks with this wide brim hat to elevate it to luxe look status or rock it at a festival in the city.

7. Straw Bag

This is undoubtedly one of the biggest trends this summer.  We love wearing this handbag with just about everything because it's so understated and ultrachic. Thanks to this, it becomes a really great buy. We promise you’ll be wearing it all summer.

8. Flip Flops

The classic summer must have. A rose gold pair like these creates a more stylish look as it's a color that is on-trend but also different to the usual black or navy. They aren’t limited to the beach so give them a try for everyday, if you haven’t already.

9. Sunnies

A good pair of sunnies adds a x-factor to your overall summer look. The cat eye in particular is super trendy this season. After spotting Bella Hadid in these sunnies, we were sure to get ourselves a pair (or two). 

Sunglasses, R59,99, MRP

10. Buckle detail heel

A block heel is great for summer in the city because you can wear them to a more formal event or even outdoor market.

With these essentials, you’re bound to have your most stylish summer.
