Nautical Holiday Essentials

Nautical holiday essentials

It’s time to cast away that winter wardrobe and sail on in to summer with these nautical holiday essentials! 

holiday essentials from Henri Lloyd

This Henri Lloyd swimsuit makes us long for lazy summer days on the French Riviera. With a halter tie fastening, flattering cut and cute bow detail you’ll look every inch the glamorous siren as you dip your toes in the sea, hair blowing in the breeze.

Breton tees are the epitomy of summer, but if you can’t quite bring yourself to swan around in a t-shirt just yet, try a long sleeved lightweight jumper instead. As day turns to dusk it can easily be thrown over a bathing suit before you wander to the bar for a cosmo (or three).

When it comes to denim shorts, it can be a frustrating ordeal trying to find a pair that don’t leave too little to the imagination. This pair oozes class and elegance but still give you a chance to show off your beautifully sunkissed legs.

Every woman knows that an oversized bag is the most important part of any holiday ensemble – where else are you going to keep your lippy and your new novel? Make yours a statement with a pop of colour. Sauntering on to the yacht with this canvas bag will leave others struggling with envy in your fashion wake.

You’ll be the sweetheart of the seas in these Archibald Optic’s Oscar sunnies, which radiate old-school glamour. Even if you don’t actually need to wear them here in Britain they’ll still look great perched on your beach-tousled head.

With all the beautiful new places to explore on holiday your feet will be grateful for a pair of Emu sandals. Their neutral tones means they’ll go with all the fabulous bikinis you packed!
