From City Break to Beach: 4 Easy Outfits for Every Summer Occasion

·2-min read

As I write this, it is 30º outside, and I have a fan blowing a few inches from my face, but I can confirm that I am still hot. Outfit planning essentially amounts to what items of clothing will keep me from turning into a puddle within 10 seconds. Currently, that means linen shorts and a silken cami, but luckily, as I browsed's summer shop, I got all the heatwave inspo I could ever need.

From loose trousers and belted playsuits to beach-ready cut-offs and throw-on-and-go dresses, there is so much to love in the edit, and it is perfect for the current heatwave. If, like me, you could do with a bit more warm-weather fashion inspo, I've put together four outfits for four different summer events that might be coming up in the next month or two.

My favourite item has to be Lisa Marie Fernandez's wide-leg trousers, which will look super chic with a fitted tank top—a Missoni crochet knit will do the job nicely—and colour-pop sandals. Ideal for a city break or day out. Or if you're by the seaside, allow me to point you in the direction of Valentino's denim shorts, which give plenty of nautical appeal when styled with Melissa Odabash's stripe swimsuit. All the French Riviera vibes, even if you're just in good ol' Blighty.

Whatever your wardrobe needs this summer, scroll down to see and shop the outfits pairings I'm loving right now.
