Sail into the season’s cool, crisp mood with nautical stripes and everything Brigitte Bardot inspired. See how to put a fresh spin on the classic Cannes look…

More than just a new take on nautical, Riviera style requires you to swap gingham for graphic prints and do something surprising with the classic Breton stripe. Invest in a cool white oversized shirt and team with wide leg trousers, this hero piece will transition into a poolside cover-up in moments.

Artfully mismatch your bikini for a modern take on classic glamour, while anything off-shoulder will channel your favourite 50s silver screen siren to a T. All-over white is another way to look cool in the heat, simply play with texture to move the look on.

All that’s left is to add a lick of lip tint and dive into the crystal-clear waters. Ready, set, go!

Step aside separates, the dress is stealing the show this season. See how you can give a classic dress a simple street style twist…

In a season awash with 90s minimalist, add a little romance, not to mention comfort, with a more forgiving silhouette. Think dresses in longer lengths, billowing fabrics, broderie anglais and sensual silks to channel your femininity at its best.

Dresses should be bold, honest and uncomplicated, with a mood of softness and romanticism. But to give your dress a personal twist, try layering a long number over trousers or teaming your fave frock with trainers or chunky flat sandals to keep things grounded.

As comfort meets cool this summer, don’t miss the opportunity to dress the part.

Traditionally, summer is a riot of print and colour and this season doesn’t fail to deliver. The return to the 70s has not only brought a touch of nostalgia to our wardrobes, but also an explosion of prints steeped in world history.

Ancient ethnic prints work harmoniously with the bohemian vibe that’s in the air this summer. Mingling elements of the 70s (flares, floppy hats, fringing) with boho classics (the maxi skirt, peasant tops, ponchos), is typical. Simply pepper your look with tribal prints and you’ll turn something expected into something altogether modern this summer.

Accessorise with Roman sandals when roaming barefoot becomes a little too impractical, the perfect pairing with a diaphanous maxi dress or love worn denim. All that’s left is to pick your fashion tribe…urban bohemian or modern Aztec?

Music festival dressing in florals, fringing and beading, is what we’ve come to consider as bohemian. But the boho mood goes far beyond rocking out in a field. There’s a new, sophisticated take on boho that you’ll want to continue wearing after the band has stopped playing.

Not everything has to look vintage inspired, your outfit can feel modern too. While the weather is good, team crisp white skinny jeans with a shoulder bearing top, it will feel beachy but more sophisticated than your typical boho look.

A floor-length floral dress is the signature piece in any bohemian look, but keep it current with an interesting cut. Opt for a high neck, a low back or an off-shoulder detail to avoid playing dress-up.

It’s hard to wear boho once the sun goes down, but by focussing on texture, such as lace, and keeping colours dark in burgundy or black, you’ll take your look from hippy dippy to rock ‘n’ roll. And that’s how to add a little structure into summer’s most free spirited trend.

Heading for the departures lounge? You’ll be needing our capsule wardrobe packing guide then. Check out the pieces you shouldn’t live without on your holi-yays!…

The white cover-up

Ever girl needs a multitasking item in her carry-on, the white mannish shirt is a must-pack. Perfect for day tripping, team your white shirt with some loose-fit trousers, converting seamlessly to a poolside cover-up come relaxation time.

The one piece

The one-piece swimsuit has never been so chic. No longer a way to cover lumps and bumps, but a bonafie style choice. Opt for a nautical themed one-piece to tick two trends at once.

The day to night dress

Seeing the sights doesn’t mean you need to dress like a typical tourist. A patterned dress is a summer essential, just opt for a loose cut to keep cool all day. Make your look restaurant or party appropriate come nightfall by simply swapping your sandals for stilettos.

The maxi

Maxi dresses and skirts are a great way to keep cool and on-trend, whilst an easy fix for maintaining modesty in destinations with a dress code for women. Team with some flat sandals and bohemian themed accessories to channel the 70s vibe.

The fuss-free shorts

There are some occassions that just require a pair of easy breasy shorts. The beauty of shorts is their ability to stay put, feel incredibly comfy and still look chic if you choose wisely. Opt for a neat pair of casual drawstring shorts in a print or pastel hue to keep things feminine.
