This is arguably the best time to shop for your summer wardrobe, as most swimwear collections, sandals and beach cover-ups have now arrived—and many are now on sale. So what are some of the most stylish women we know buying this summer? I had some of our favourite editors, influencers and seasoned beachgoers share their summer wish lists. It was the perfect task for a nosy shopper like myself.
There were some common themes in my email chains. Timeless Pearly earrings made it onto more than one wish list, and strappy By Far sandals are another clear success story. There are a few items that I now want to add to my own shopping list, including some rainbow hair clips from Etsy and a swimsuit made of recycled materials from Arket.
Personal shopper Bettina Looney and Vogue's Donna Wallace provided some insights into the best luxury pieces to invest in. But I also turned to some of my fashion high-street shoppers too, so the list below includes amazing pieces from Prada and COS to The Row to & Other Stories. Keep scrolling to see what stylish women are putting on their wish lists for summer.
If anyone knows how to assemble the perfect holiday wardrobe, it's the founder of vacation shopping destination Beach Flamingo, Lily Russo-Bah. Her two go-to swimsuits this year are a tiger-print bikini by Rixo and a checked swimsuit from Solid & Striped.
