The ki­mono jacket:

From the beach to the bar to a night on the tiles, this cover-up will be your hol­i­day’s most ver­sa­tile piece, to throw on over your swim­suit or bikini at the the pool, wear with a cami top and shorts or cu­lottes for sight­see­ing and as an el­e­gant wrap for evening.

Pic­tured: Fringed ki­mono to come for sum­mer from Mon­soon. H, a week in the sun – whether it’s been planned for months or it’s a last-minute on­line burst of in­spi­ra­tion, you can’t just throw bits and pieces from your draw­ers into a case, dig out your old swimwear and then hope you’ll be able to buy some­thing more suit­able when you get there. And then, some­how, ex­pect to look fab­u­lous.

It doesn’t work like that. This is not the way to hol­i­day in style. Nor, in­deed, is it the way to sail through this en­tire sum­mer in style. No, what’s needed is a clever cap­sule col­lec­tion of new sea­son piece that will all work to­gether and with the rest of your wardrobe, while giv­ing you an on-trend fash­ion up­date.

So here’s what look look out for – the top eight in­vest­ment pieces for a per­fect sum­mer.

The denim shirt:

Per­fect for the beach over your bikini and team with denim shorts or cropped skinny jeans for this sea­son’s dou­ble denim trend, and with cow­boy boots and skinny scarves for a “rock chick” edge.

Pic­tured: This one is £29, at www.lared­oute.
