RHODE – Arya Tie-waist Cotton Dress
This is one of the nicest dresses I’ve seen this season. It comes in several colours, but this sunflower-yellow is my favourite one. Shaped with cropped balloon sleeves, a V-neck and a waist tie to cinch the relaxed silhouette, I find it chic and casual at the same time. Pair it with flat sandals or espadrilles and enjoy the nice weather!

LACO’S – Capri Espadrilles
Comfortable and uber chic, I am in love with these bespoke espadrilles. Available in many colours, they are masterfully crafted in Italy. Wear them with your favourite skinny jeans for a laid back, casual look.

VALENTINO – Torchon Rockstud Leather Wedge Sandals
Iconic and feminine, these wedge sandals are a must-have for this season. Framed with signature gold-tone metal pyramid studs, then set on a chunky red, white and navy satin rope-trimmed wedge heel, they are available in different colours. Match them with a long skirt to enhance the strong 70’s vibe.

LINDA FARROW – Round Titanium Sunglasses
These round green sunglasses will add that special touch to your outfit. Crafted with clear acetate frames and slender lightweight gold-tone titanium arms, they are set with gradient lenses. Add them to a retro look for an eclectic, polished result.

ETRO – Floral-print Chiffon Kaftan
Vibrant and colourful, this gorgeous kaftan is perfect for the beach and for the aprés- beach too. It has a floaty silhouette and a feminine floral print. Enhance the boho-chic vibe and match it with flats and a raffia bag.

MISSONI MARE – Chevron-topstitched Cotton-blend Playsuit
Sexy and playful, this wrap-effect playsuit is the ideal beach companion. Its deep V-neck, fitted waist and wide high-rise legs will flatter any figure. Wear with sky-high wedges for a super slender silhouette.

ZEUS + DIONE – Mykonos V-neck Gathered Swimsuit
Cut to a flattering plunge neckline and gathered across the front, this blue swimsuit will be appreciated by bikini lovers as well. The wide waistband is great to accentuate a feminine silhouette. Wear with a long skirt or shorts and wedges.
