Scotch & Soda Hawaii Swim Shorts, Blue

I’d recommend you take a couple of pairs of swim shorts with you on a beach holiday, so you always have a dry pair to slip on. These Scotch & Soda option have an eye-catching floral print, so your style stands out on a crowded beach.

John Lewis Ticking Stripe Blazer, Blue

A good tailored cotton blazer, like our striped one, will let you look smart during the summer, without having to rely on one of your suit jackets. Its tailored fit gives you a more defined silhouette. There’s a cool polka-dot undercollar which adds a fun detail.

John Lewis Gladstone small holdall

I love the John Lewis Gladstone small holdall. It’s made from aged leather and has a timeless design, which gives it its attractive vintage look. Ideal for using as a gym or overnight bag, the Gladstone also comes in a larger size for longer breaks.

For me, shorts are a great way to add some colour to my wardrobe for summer. Chino shorts are a smart choice for sunny weekends. Wear them with a simple polo shirt and Havaianas, or dressed up with a checked shirt and blazer for an evening outside.
