Give your wardrobe a quick summer upgrade with these easy essentials

With only a few days until we all hightail it out of the office for a week or two, now is the time to ensure our wardrobes are suitably prepped for summer. Helping you to simplify this process, we have stripped things back to the six essential items you really shouldn’t be without over the break: a swimsuit, a pair of slides, a tote bag, a summer dress, a fail-safe pair of sunglasses and a wide-brimmed hat. Tick these boxes and you’ll be sartorially sorted for any summery situation.

These are our recommendations:

Solid & Striped Elle Bikini from Superette; Stella McCartney Sunny slides from Scarpa; Book tote from Dior; Versace sunglasses from OPSM; Isabel Marant Etoile Telicia wrap dress from Workshop; Lurex Papier hat from Gucci
Bodice dress from Georgia Alice; Mexican Daytime Roses hat from Dior; Prada sunglasses from OPSM; Hunza G Angela bikini from Superette; Isabel Marant Etoile Hellea slides from Workshop; Mr Porter PVC tote from Deadly Ponies
