SOAK UP THE SUN IN RICH SHADES OF TERRACOTTA, RUST AND KHAKI. COMBINED WITH CLEAN, FRESH NEUTRALS, THEY’RE THE PERFECT ADDITION TO YOUR HOLIDAY CAPSULE WARDROBE

Lazy beach days are made for relaxed layers and loose cuts, and the perfect capsule holiday wardrobe is easy to achieve when you stick to a complementary colour palette. Warm shades of terracotta and rust are the perfect partner to blue skies and clear water. Meanwhile, khaki makes a great summer neutral – it will work with everything from bright primary shades to faded seersucker stripes. Classic staples in cream linen or white cotton add a fresh twist.
