Hats
Hats have been dipping in and out of fashion from centuries. From floppy straw hats in the 1800s to the over-the-stop style we see on today’s cat walks. Hats are both practical and fashionable, especially when paired with a cute summer dress.

This elegant limp hat from Hobbs London is the ideal style to keep your head safe from strong rays, whilst still allowing you to rock your fashion on the beach.

Sunglasses
Sunglasses are an important part of our summer outfit. They both protect us from the sun and hold back our hair. Of course we want to look fabulous in our pair of ‘sunnies’, don’t forget to check that they are UV protectant! These ‘snazzy sunnies’ below are from River Island.

A white shirt 
A white shirt is the final thing on our list, because it goes with anything and can even be worn on top of a swimsuit as worn by the model in the floral shirt below – by Accessorize. You can also chuck on a white shirt and a pair of ‘mom jeans’ when it begins to get cold, and look cool as a cucumber with your beach waved hair.
