Summer and with it the summer holidays are getting ever closer. Now is the perfect time to fine-tune your summer holiday wardrobe. Whether it’s an exciting city trip or a relaxing break with a beach or pool, no suitcase is fully packed without a dress or two. When you’re travelling, there are three essentials: light cuts, jaunty prints and thin materials.
If you’re off to New York, London or Milan, then your best bet for sightseeing trips is practical shirt dresses. The collections at Bottega Veneta or Miu Miu feature elegant, uncomplicated dresses that have eye-catchingly summery patterns. But you can also discover a city’s sights with bare shoulders in the maxi dress by Kiton.
Tunica-style flowing dresses are the perfect choice for a drink at a beach bar. Throw them over your swimwear and voilà – you’re dressed for lunch. Try the violet version with embroidery by Emporio Armani, or the trademark pattern patchwork by Etro.
The perfect end to any summer’s day includes an aperitif and dinner in a hip restaurant. You’re guaranteed to make an elegant impression in the black maxi dress by Valentino. Exciting ruffles make the dress by Mulberry quite the eye-catcher.
