    The 5 Summer Essentials You Need on Your Packing List

    Beach days, road trips, staying cool in the city — summer is synonymous with a jam-packed agenda. Luckily, we’ve got you covered in the style department. Here, our guide to dressing for the season: uber-comfy sandals, airy dresses and unique swimsuits you’ll practically live in.

    Light-As-Air Dresses

    When the temperatures reach scorching highs, there’s nothing like a breezy dress to bring some ease back to dressing. Look for light fabrics like linen or cotton plus relaxed silhouettes to make it the ultimate one-and-done outfit option.

    Wear-All-Day Sandals

    More than any other style essential, your summer footwear selection should marry charm and true function. Sleek leather slides, elegant espadrilles and utilitarian-style sandals are perfect pairs that will take you from daytime obligations to an under-the-stars patio evening, no need to change!

    Sporty Swimsuits

    Whether it’s a lake dip, lengths in the pool or basking in the glorious sun, you’ll definitely need a reliable swimsuit to get you through July and August. We love one-piece bathers amped up with cool detail (think one-shouldered cuts or bright, bold colour) and, for the guys, slim-fit swim trunks that don’t skimp on personality.

    Glow-Getting Beauty

    The best part about summer is that your beauty routine becomes its most minimal. All you need are a few key products to enhance that sun-given glow: a swipe of creamy bronzer, tinted SPF to lock in protection and healthy-looking skin, and lastly, a sheer lip tint that brings a bit of all-day colour.

    Bold Accessories

    What’s a summer style without standout accessories? Take your look to the next level with eye-catching bucket hats, tinted-lens sunglasses and beach bags that are roomy enough to hold everything you might need for a park picnic.
