Nothing says you’re heading off on your hols more than stashing away a brightly coloured beach towel. Yes, this Rainbow Stripe Beach Towel is hugely practical on the beach but is also a handy cover up from the sun after a swim and the latest range of designs are lightweight making it super easy to dry.

TK MAXX – £12.99



Even if you’re not leaving the country, you can still invoke the spirit of foreign shores. This bright and sassy sundress is cool enough for daytime and smart enough for nights under the stars.

And of course no holiday is complete without some stylish sun specs to keep out the rays – but also as the ultimate accessory to your summer outfit. These are cute while remaining a statement piece at the same time.




If it’s hot and you’re lucky enough to be by a pool or the sea you cannot leave home without these practical Adidas Adilette Aqua Slides. The sandals come in sizes 4 to 13 so should fit just about any member of the family. The navy three-stripe design are super comfy, are shower friendly for after-pool rinses and come with plenty of underfoot padding. Best of all, they’re sturdy so will last for many holidays to come.




One of the joys of being on holiday is pampering yourself with a few indulgent toiletries. Lush has got your back with its compact Bring Me Sunshine package containing six gorgeously scented treats: a mimosa shower gel, lemon zest soap, orange foot balm and hand lotion, a custard body wash and honey shampoo bar. Six of the best summer treats.
