It’s easy to take your look from street to beach with the right textures - think woven ones like these Max Espadrilles (enough of a heel to dress you up but still not totally impractical if you’re caught in the sand) and a woven bag to match.
These neutrals give you the freedom to let loose with your colours. Strong colours can be clashed with soft colours for a confident look and in this case it’s red and baby blue. Easily make one of these colours the base by choosing a matching jacket and during the day you can keep it tucked inside your bag.
My fool proof addition to any outfit is stripes and to play on that texture again the scarf picks up a more detailed blue print while doubling as a wraparound.
Pull your look together with a fun printed drink bottle (perfect motivation for keeping hydrated on long hot days), classic sunglasses and statement piece of jewellery to carry you easily between the city and beach.
