To kick off your outfit, throw on a statement shirt. We’re not talking something so garish that it'll induce mental images of your dad swanning around by the pool in full ‘holiday
mode'. Stick with darker hues to keep things neat, even if it's dominated by a bold pattern. This short-sleeved, revere-collared navy shirt with its pineapple print should do the trick nicely. While that summery top is, in itself, probably enough to divert critics’ eyes from the screen and onto your getup, the key to nailing the complete look is to keep the rest simple and muted.
Over the top, layer a dirty pink blazer
, giving you the option to smarten things up or bring added protection should you catch a chill from the sea breeze. Then, pair smart green shorts with Dr Martens' take on buckle-strap sandals for a simple but bold combination below the belt. All that’s left to complete a blockbuster look is to add a pair of retro sunnies
, throw a slick satchel over your shoulder and pop open a bottle of champers. Lovely.
