In all honesty, sunglasses should be an all-year-round necessity because of their ability to instantly make any outfit look better. But since summer is peak sunglass season, these are the eye-catching pairs topping our list right now.

As it turns out, cut-outs aren't just a key trend for clothes this season.

You're sure to fall in love with these unforgettable shades. 

If you have a classic pair of tortoiseshell sunnies that you rely on every year, try switching up the shape with these angular Loewe frames.

It's official: Gucci has made yellow lenses the look du jour. 

Every outfit deserves a pop of colour, and there's no better colour than sunshine yellow.

The classic cat-eye, but with modern tinted lenses.

The summer dress deserves credit as one of the most important items you can take with you on a sunny trip away. Packing tops means bringing a selection of bottoms, but a dress will always be the one outfit that doesn't require anything else. These are the mini, midi and maxi dresses that will convert even the most dubious dress sceptic.

This cover-up also doubles up as a gauzy maxi dress on and off the beach. 

Just picture this dress on the Amalfi Coast (limoncello optional).

Not only will the print score points in the style stakes, but the light mesh will keep you cool, too. 

Just wear over a bright bikini, straight out of the sea.

Fans of one-piece costumes, bright colours and cute detailing have to check out Jade Swim. 

Swimwear doesn't get more Instagrammable than this. 

A classic halterneck costume has the kind of timeless appeal that means you'll wear it every summer for years to come. 

The print! The belt! The colour! There's very little not to like about this Melissa Odabash number. 

Clashing colours might just be our favourite new swimwear trend. 

If the Nensi Dojaka dress didn't sell you on tangerine orange, this Eres swimsuit will most certainly convince you. 

Nothing beats a bandeau for getting rid of pesky tan lines.

Towel? Check. SPF? Check. Book? Check. Sunglasses? Most definitely. All you need is a bag to put them in, and it would be impossible to escape the woven-bag trend that's all over our feeds this year. Whether you go with raffia, string or straw, just make sure that your beach bag has a crafty, artisanal touch.

After we saw Pernille Teisbaek, Estelle Chemouny and Lucy Williams with this, it became this year's certified It bag.

The coral handle detail makes this bag stand out from any other raffia bags on the market. 

The bag that launched 1000 copies, now in confetti yellow. 

It might look like a simple string bag, but it's actually leather woven by hand to imitate mesh. A feat of craftsmanship. 

Those in need of a little extra room, look no further. Isabel Marant's XXL bucket tote is a deep bag to fill. 

5. MUST-HAVE SUMMER SANDALS

Step into summer's new sandals: colourful, embellished, or textured open-toe styles from your favourite designers that are built to go the distance. Your only decision now is how many pairs to fit into your suitcase.

Easy slip-ons in—yes, you guessed it—our current orange obsession.

The coral-effect beading is a charming detail evocative of the Mediterranean Sea. 

If you ever needed a reason to step out of your comfort zone and try an outlandish new style, let these Pucci sandals be it. 

Logomania shows no signs of slowing down, and these are a particular favourite in the Who What Wear office. 

If you're looking for a forever sandal that will stand the test of time, consider these a strong contender. 

Valentino accessories are always instantly recognisable, and these thong sandals might just overtake the Rockstud as our shoe of choice.

Not all summer sandals have to be flats for the beach. These have all of your dinners, parties and date nights covered.

Whether you plan on reclining by the pool or exploring the city, make sure your look is complete with these finishing touches.

Whether you're wearing a white tank top or a silk slip dress, adding little sparkle is always preferable. 

You didn't think we'd forget a towel, did you? It helps when it looks this cool. 

Dress up a fresh, white linen shirt with this chunky gold chain. 

The bucket hat trend is firmly sticking around for another year, at least. 

Statement-making earrings worth their weight in gold.

As practical as it is fashionable, this sun hat should be in your beach bag at all times. 

Scarf-styling is having a moment, so tie this one into a headscarf, bandana, neckerchief, or around the handle of your raffia bag. The ideal holiday print.
