Whether you’ll be spending your summer in the English countryside or to exotic destinations further afield (is the Maldives calling your name too?), this collection covers it all.

We’ve rounded up our favourite pieces to take you from beach to bar and just about everything in-between…

Ditsy Georgette Sundress

We just adore this sundress in a super cute ditsy print! Featuring full cotton lining, this is a must have piece to take you from the beach to a romantic dinner. Team with a pair of gladiator sandals, oversized straw tote bag and throw on a denim jacket for the evening time. Or mix it up and team with a plain tee underneath and trainers for a more casual affair.

Stripe Pure Linen Shirt

A lightweight shirt is an absolute summer must-have! This versatile stripe design can be teamed with a pair of jeans, cargo trousers, shorts or even over a bikini as the perfect beach coverup. The loose fit is perfect to layer over a cami, we need this in our wardrobes asap!

Soft Denim Jumpsuit

Jumpsuits are an essential for summertime and great for taking away on holiday! Sure, nipping to the loo can turn into a bit of a palava but jumpsuits are fabulous, effortless dressing. Minimal thought is required, just throw on a jumpsuit for an immediate cool and contemporary look. Team with a pair of converse to give your outfit an edgy vibe or a pair of wedges for an evening look et voila!

Off The Shoulder Embroidered Dress

Embroidery is BIG this season and what better way to wear it than with this gorgeous off the shoulder dress? We adore the flirty frills, and this style is just perfect for lazy days on the beach. The lightweight chambray is perfect for those hotter climates. We’re already dreaming about those pina coladas…

Embroidered Crinkle Maxi Skirt

Sticking with the embroidery trend, we’ve all gone crazy for this maxi skirt! Featuring two front splits and a front tie with tassel detail, this is simply perfect for summer BBQs and garden parties. Keep it cool with a simple white or grey top, and finish off the look with a pair of black sandals, stacking rings and a few layered necklaces. Boho chic at its finest!

Spot Chiffon Midi Dress

We’re having a bit of a love affair with polka dots at the moment, and this dress is no exception! Available in equally beautiful navy or coral, this item has shot straight to the top of our wish lists. Featuring a flattering halter neck and feminine flair, you can channel that perfect riveriea chic look for just £75!

Scoop Neck Fluted Sleeve Top

Stripes never get old and don’t let anybody tell you anything different! No wardrobe is complete without a few trusty breton-style tops and we love the fun twist on this classic. The flute sleeve adds a gorgeous feminine touch, and we can just imagine this team with a pair of white skinny jeans or linen trousers.

It’s easy to see why we’re totally crushing on Long Tall Sally! We’re head over heels for the new collection and can’t wait to sport a few of our favourite styles on our holidays.
