Slipping straight from the sea, to sand then into a silky kaftan there’s an effortlessness and particular holiday freedom to be found, heading straight to a scenic spot for an afternoon aperitif - no outfit change necessary.
All sunkissed skin and salty hair, a jeweled sandal and signature necklace are all that’s needed for a chic transition from beach to bar, when paired with suitably sophisticated swimwear.
Opt for neutral tints that layer easily with everything else in your capsule ‘suitcase’ wardrobe, including any prints. A one piece offers the versatility of partnering with a breezy skirt (just add sunglasses and a tasselled bag), while bikinis look chic peeking beneath lace kaftans or billowy, backless silhouettes.
