One of my favourite things about summer season (apart from the guiltless gelato fiesta of course), is the fashion! From beach holidays with long flowing dresses, sun hats and floral bikinis, to city breaks with cute shorts, platforms and over-sized glasses… our options are endless!

Recent trends have seen the return of several notable fashion pieces which designers are re-inventing such as overalls, bell sleeves, wide leg trousers and now metallics – hello 70’s & 80’s! Thinking of my Florentine holiday coming up in 3 days, here are my top summer 2017 fashion picks for a city break:

Dresses – maxi dresses never seem to go out of style and why should they! Stylish and comfortable, the maxi dress is an ideal look no matter where in the world you are. This season I’m all about colourful, flowing and off the shoulder for that feminine touch. My current favourite is this one, by Diane Von Furstenberg.

Shorts – it’s going to be a hot summer (with temperatures hitting 50C in the UAE already!) – shorts have always been a staple whether you are going for a chic or sporty look. What do you think about this white denim one with florals from H&M?

Shoes – sneakers are the rave right now! I can’t wait to traverse the historical streets of Florence in my new Toms – incredibly comfortable, cute design, and for one pair you purchase, Toms gives another pair to a child in need!

Bags – a girl can never have too many things in her bag, the challenge is to find one which fits all your essentials! Weekender bags are always a staple, however I am totally in love with my yellow Promod mini cross, which radiates summer.

Hats – the bigger the better, stylish, protects you from the sun’s rays, and totally chic! How cool are these personalized ones from Bits And Pieces? πŸ™‚

Wishing you all a fabulous, and stylish summer!
