We love this powder blue towelling shorts set for a poolside look. 

As the temperatures rise and we start optimistically dreaming about a summer of travel, there's one thing to consider that is just as important as the destination—what you're going to wear. Whether you're planning a sunny staycation, gearing up to the trip of a lifetime in a far-flung destination, or simply getting ready for a hot summer in the city, daily outfit deliberation is frankly an unnecessary stress that takes up your valuable time in the sun.

In a bid to solve any summer outfit dilemmas we've assembled the perfect capsule wardrobe to take you from poolside afternoons to garden parties and everything in between. Instead of spending the next few weeks searching for the perfect summer outfit, we've done the hard work for you and put together the ultimate summer capsule wardrobe.

This season ARKET's summer collection certainly makes hot-weather dressing so much easier. With functional and fashionable pieces that conjure up images of a day spent by the sea, expect lightweight layers, must-have accessories and Instagrammble swimwear in some of the seasons key colours. We particularly love the cotton towelling shirt-and-short sets in a soft powder blue colour and the chic linen trousers which you'll want to wear from now until September.
