Now that vacations are on the horizon, we’re planning our quintessential coastal wardrobe for fresh mornings by the sea and warm, breezy afternoons. When packing for the beach, reach for a silk midi dress that brings elevated but relaxed style to daytime events and billows beautifully while walking through a warm wind. One such piece is Zimmermann’s floral-print style. Connie Parkinson, NET-A-PORTER’s shopping assistant, describes it as the perfect choice for summer weddings.

“It ticks all the boxes on my warm-weather checklist: floaty sleeves, layered skirt and a pretty, feminine floral print,” says Parkinson. “I’d style it with a simple pair of strappy heels by The Row, layering it with Foundrae’s gold jewelry, and adding a joyful pop of color with a bright bag from The Attico.”

The next key addition to your wanderlust edit? A classic Jade Swim bikini in a metallic, bronze hue that shimmers during golden hour. And for when you’re not splashing around, treat yourself to lunch alfresco in Frankie Shop’s effortless ‘Melody’ shirt. The cult-status button-up in a blazing-yellow shade will brighten up your off-duty closet. Complete your look with a smart pair of longline denim shorts – Agolde’s ‘Dee’ shorts are designed for a high-rise, vintage fit that is ultra-flattering. Pair with Valentino’s chic – and comfortable – leather sandals, for a look that is equally perfect for exploring a historic city and casual Fridays in the office.

As for the all-important finishing touches, use accessories to play with bolder colors. Hot pink might be the season’s favorite, but vibrant orange is one to watch, particularly when it’s a sleek handbag by Loewe in tangerine. For sunset dinners, simply layer on Kimaï’s striking recycled-gold necklace. Crafted in the coveted toi-et-moi style, in which the two stones represent two lovers, it lends a romantic touch to any look.
