FOR ADVENTURES…

Perfecting the art of packing can be tricky for intrepid travelers. After all, who knows what you’ll be doing from one day to the next? The answer is to opt for hardworking pieces that are as durable as they are versatile. Case in point, a modern one-piece. Model and fitness fanatic Georgia Fowler gets the best out of hers by wearing it on the beach, then under cargo shorts with espadrilles for action-packed, sun-drenched days. Fans of tailoring will love this season’s must-have shorts suit; follow Caroline Daur’s lead and pairs yours with a wide-brim sun hat and leather sandals.

FOR BEACH CLUB DAYS…

There’s something about switching your out-of-office on and jetting off to unchartered territories that makes the sartorial serotonin promised by a tie-dye shirt or riotous separates irresistible. Whether you’re channelling a hippie vibe or Cali cool-girl look, take your styling cues from street-style stars Jeanette Madsen, Thora Valdimars and Linda Tol, all of whom take a more-is-more approach to prints. Extra kudos if you add a printed bucket hat – this season’s must-have piece – to your accessories arsenal, like Caroline Daur.

FOR SIGHTSEEING…

When it comes to nailing vacation style, focus on fabric. Whether your spirit animal is Roman Holiday’s Audrey Hepburn or Brigitte Bardot strolling the streets of 1960s Saint-Tropez, opt for breezy cotton pieces so you can beat the heat. For a modern spin on a ladylike look, perfect for touring old towns or lunching with friends, try choreographer Sherrie Silver’s go-to – classic yet cool blouses and skirts in zingy citrus shades. If you’re after a more bohemian look, pick up Cult Gaia’s risqué co-ords and pair with a bikini and basket bag – beach-to-tiki-bar dressing made easy, as demonstrated by model Hilary Rhoda.

FOR SUNDOWNER STYLE…

From balmy island evenings to rooftop bars, warm-weather dressing takes on a whole new meaning after dark. For minimalists, it’s the perfect opportunity to show off glowing skin, either in a dazzling white dress – let Italian tastemakers Giorgia Tordini and Amina Muaddi inspire you – or by mastering the art of summer black; it may not sound like the most vacation-friendly proposition, but take one look at actress Nathalie Emmanuel, smoldering in the Aegean twilight at Amanzoe in Greece, and you’ll be convinced. The trick is to opt for diaphanous designs and clever cuts, plus a liberal helping of gold jewelry. Look-at-me dressing more your thing? Indulge your ’80s nostalgia in a power mini dress in lustrous satin (perfect for catching the last of the day’s rays). Make Nicole Warne your muse and pair yours with hoop earrings and metallic pumps.

FOR FINISHING TOUCHES…

When luggage limitations mean you have to pack pieces that can be worn in myriad ways, accessories are your secret styling weapon. Even the simplest of outfits takes on new meaning when it’s finished with a sun hat or a playful beaded bag. When it comes to daytime, elevated basket bags continue to reign supreme – find one that has room for all of your beach essentials. Sunglasses are non-negotiable for a tropical getaway – the most popular styles right now are classics like the cay-eye and aviator, although the ’90s styles favored by DJ Peggy Gou are still having a serious moment. Pack as many pairs as possible – there’s no easier way to switch up your look. Next, harness the tan-enhancing properties of yellow gold by finishing every look with a liberal helping of bangles, necklaces and rings by Chopard, the only fine jewelry brand whose metals are 100% sustainable. Finally, opt for sandals that will take you from day to night – espadrilles, gladiator sandals and barely-there styles are a chic safe bet and comfortable enough to dance the night away in.
