This season, we’re getting our fashion inspiration straight from the sun-drenched Greek islands. Think cool shades of blue, pops of bright white, bold patterns and leafy prints.
The easiest way for you to get involved in the trend? Take your cue from Chloe Lewis.
Chloe says: "Summer has to be the best time of the year, right? For one, I just love having a tan. Dressing for the sunshine is so much easier – and way more fun!"
Dress to impress
"How would I describe my style? I prefer classic looks. Midi and maxi dresses never go out of fashion and you can wear them for any occasion. I’d wear this striped dress to the beach with sandals and then,
if I’m going out later, I’d dress it up with heels and statement jewellery, like colourful tassel earrings."
Got the blues
"For lazy days on the beach, I’m all about the one-piece swimsuit. Whatever your age or shape, it looks great. To get twice the use out of it, double up and wear it like a top with some trousers. If you sunbathe in a halterneck swimsuit like this blue printed one, don’t forget to pull down the straps to avoid unwanted tan lines!"
"It’s all about the palm print this summer. I’m a massive fan because it’s so easy to wear – I think it looks great on anyone. Why not team it with a white shirt? I love it as it’s such a simple look. And, if you’re feeling a bit self-conscious about your bottom half when you’re wearing a bikini, you can just tie the shirt around your waist. Sorted!"
The cold shoulder
"When else can you wear a top to show off your tanned shoulders? I’d pair this embroidered top with white jeans, or denim shorts if it’s really hot out. Just add sunglasses. Good to go. You can’t go wrong with reflective aviators – they’re timeless!"
"When it comes to my colour of choice for summer, I’d choose white every time. Nothing sets off a tan better! In fact, you’ll find me wearing white and lots of other neutral colours all year round. And I love a white swimsuit, like this embellished one-piece (available 29 July 2018)."
