It's always important to keep your cool when on holiday in a city because the last thing you want be is uncomfortable. The ensemble of choice for this summer should be a midi skirt and a structured crop top. Breezy enough to keep you cool but glam enough to take you from day to night. As for footwear, trainers are a must. A note about the Gazelles: make sure you wear them in before exploring a city in a day in them. A gorgeous bag and a pair of mirrored sunnies are also vital.

Beach Escape

I for one am a shade baby and so for me, cover ups are essential to my beach attire. This one ticks all the boxes. Striped, not too short, covers the shoulders, just perfect. Just pair with a pair of wedges and lippy for the evening. A black bikini is the easiest way to look chic on the beach. Topped off with a straw fedora and a plain pair of espadrilles and you are good to go. And just to make the look even more beachy, stack neon friendship bracelets as high up your arm as you fancy. Clockwise: Dress, GAP £29 (in the sale!); Hat, H&M £7.99; Bikini. Topshop £13 & £8; Espadrilles, Asos £10; Bangles, New Look £5.99.
