July Fashion Picks: Embracing the sun
TEXT: NOELIA SANTANA | PRESS PHOTOS
As we welcome summer once again (hopefully with plenty of long days and sultry nights), our minds are set on those functional pieces that can be worn throughout the season – whether we’re staying in the city, hitting the beach or exploring new lands.
An easy-to-wear two-piece
The co-ord set is the epitome of easy summer dressing. The slightly oversized shirt can be worn with jeans, tailored trousers, over a simple dress, a swimsuit, you name it! Pair it with the matching shorts for an effortless but extremely stylish outfit. No need to spend much time thinking about what to wear: this co-ord will be your best friend during the holidays.
Marks & Spencer, pure Irish linen shirt €82, shorts €70
The raffia bag
A raffia bag is the perfect accessory for summer. We love the UFO collection by MAM. It’s big enough for all your knickknacks and must-have items during your beach escapade, yet lightweight and made to last. This versatile piece can be worn two ways: with two straps as a chic tote or as an across-the-body bag for the ultimate functionality.

A pair of sandals for everything
When choosing footwear for a holiday, we recommend going for a simple pair that you can wear with everything from casual shorts to floaty summer dresses. The ‘Endless Summer’ sandals by Everlane might be just the answer. The style combines the very trendy thong with an adjustable ankle strap that will keep your foot in place while walking down the beach boardwalk. Comfort without compromising on elegance.
Everlane, the Endless Summer sandals, €149
The seashell earrings
It might be an obvious choice while enjoying a beach holiday, but we love to accessorise with gorgeous elements straight from the sea. This pair of seashell earrings from Mango will add the ultimate summer accent to your simple white t-shirt and jeans combination, but it’s also perfect for elevating a gorgeous knit dress to wear to dinner in the evening.
Mango, mixed bead earrings, €22.99
The cool shirt
Breathable materials are a must when dressing for summer. Good reason to add this textured floral shirt to your wardrobe. Crafted in 100% cotton, it will not only keep you cool even on the hottest days, but is also super stylish.
Boden, palm leaf sun print, €66
