With temperatures rising and summer coming in hot, it’s time to get prepared for some lazy poolside lounging. This army of accessories is practical, stylish and ticks off every SS21 trend.
The Fine Print
Graphic prints ruled the runways this season, and no-one does them better than Donatella Versace. Opt for joyous pastels in sunshine yellows, lush lilacs and seafoam greens, and add a little gold hardware to find that sweet spot between prim and rebellious.
Bucket And Spade
Originally created by Gaston-Louis Vuitton in 1932 to carry his bottles of bubbles without breaking them, the bucket bag has since become a handbag staple. For SS21, opt for perforated styles in neutral hues that are just about big enough for a few precious necessities. Extra style points for a pop of print.
Evoking a chic summer slowness that we desperately need right now, tropical raffia accessories are having a moment that’s set to last all season. Whimsical, unfussy and eco-friendly, these natural textures will inject a relaxed holiday vibe into any daytime ensemble.
Instantly clean-up your poolside boho look with a stellar swipe of the dark stuff. Perfectly paired with either summer whites or lively hues such as jewel tones. Who said black was just for winter?
A trend that is going from strength to strength, the SS21 catwalks were awash with see-through accessories that are cool, calm and wearable. Peak ’90s nostalgia at its finest, these classic pieces are neutral enough to go with anything, making them the perfect new-season investment.
Bolt Out Of The Blue
The standout shade for spring/summer, blue is infiltrating our wardrobes this season and it’s bolder and brighter than ever. Case in point? These striking Prada slingbacks will add a pop of colour to a cascading white sundress, perfect for poolside sundowners.
The Final Touch
Look to zesty tones and plenty of pizazz to instantly dial-up your pared-back daytime look ready for the evening’s iftars. Go big or go home.
