Karlie Kloss for Free People by Guy Aroch
It's getting to that time of year again where at the first hint of sunshine, we all desperately dream of sitting on a beach in the Caribbean sipping cocktails. Unfortunately it is only March, and last week's pseudo-summer seems to have sent everyone into panic buying mode! Many high street stores have brought their summer collections forward due to the unforeseen heat of last week, and even though the weather may have taken a gloomier outlook this week, the pastels have most certainly hit the streets. So what better time to plan updating your summer wardrobe than now? Hey, if you can't beat the bandwagon, jump on it!
This minimalist two piece swimsuit by Esprit, modelled here by the lovely Gisele Bundchen promote a natural and spontaneous dress code this summer. Keep it simple, keep it stylish. Available soon.
The Tennis Dress by Twenty8Twelve is a welcome addition to a summer wardrobe.
