The summer season is here, and there’s no better way to make the most of balmy weather than to head off on an island holiday, be it to the Maldives or Mykonos.
We’ve selected a number of seasonal essentials to pack for your island holiday, which of course will be just as useful on any other beach vacation.
throw in the towel
A towel is no longer just a towel. With all the beautiful products available at the likes of Lala Linen, Mungo and Hertex, you are really spoiled for choice, and your towel will be very much part of your island style attire this summer.

shades of blue
Sunglasses are a must-have for an island getaway. We really like the shade of blue from the ever-expanding Ray-Ban collection.
Pack away your Marc Jacobs and bring out the beach bag. We really like this large nude beach bag in jute fabric with black woven detail, available from H&M.
reinvigoration for your skin
The natural look will never age, but you might need some brightening up after a day in the sun. Renew your look for a night out with a little BB cream and blush for glowing cheeks.
don’t forget your hat
The sun is lovely but harsh, so be sure to cover up. We really love this classic panama hat available from Witchery.
