The first is a good pair of sunglasses. Sunnies are essential – not just as a fashion item, but for your health too. And no, not just for covering up your Saturday morning hangover. Make sure your shades have UV protection to shield your eyes from harmful rays, as it’s not just your skin that needs looking after in the sun. A great pair of shades will serve you well for the whole summer, so spend a bit of time looking around for a frame that suits your face shape. Oval face shapes suit most frames, but heart-shaped faces will look better in angular-shaped frames. Round faces will look better in broad frames.
A great pair of sandals is a summer must-have – they can be dressed up or dressed down, and you’ll wear them all season long. We love Dune sandals for a wide selection of styles and embellishments, found on Very.com. If you have slender ankles, opt for an ankle strap for comfort and chic style. But steer clear if you have slightly chunkier ankles or legs, as they will draw attention to the wrong place. You can really go to town on your sandals, so don’t be afraid of a bit of bling on your feet. They’re casual enough to take some heavy detailing.
Maxi dresses are another item worth investing in because, like your sandals, they can be dressed up for evening wear or worn casually to the shops. They are also great for hiding a multitude of sins, and will flatter most body types with very little effort. Go for an eye-catching floral fabric for effortless style.
Even if you’re not planning a big summer holiday, a bikini is a must-have – for pools, garden sunbathing, or just chilling in the park on a hot day. It’s a good idea to re-buy each summer, as you may have put on or lost weight and a well-fitting bikini will make you feel a lot more confident. Just remember the sun cream!
