H&M linen loungewear robe, £29.99

Switch from your usual fluffy robe to this short and airy linen version. Pairs well with an espresso and your morning newspaper.

ZARA HOME leather wide strap wedges, £49.99

We’re big fans of Zara’s homewear range - these tan slippers would be great for both an outdoor stroll or lounging on the patio.

SKIMS Soft Lounge ribbed maxi slip dress, £78

A modern classic loved by (apparently) everyone. Lazing and watching KUWTK - optional.

SPORTY & RICH x PRINCE stretch-woven mini skirt, £135

Off to play tennis? How sporty & rich of you. Dress the part.

HUNZA G seersucker swimsuit, £155

This would not be a summer edit without at least one swimsuit. Barbie-fy your next dip in the pool with this hot-pink one piece.

SLEEPER Party feather-trimmed twill pajama set, £325

Go straight from the party to sleep, or vice versa, or just stay home and sleep eight hours. Your choice!

THE ROW Fedras cropped cotton-blend jersey T-shirt, £460

If you’re on the hunt for a fresh, cropped, white t-shirt… might as well make it The Row.

THE ELDER STATESMAN tie-dyed cashmere sweater, £1,665

Keep this dreamy funky jumper near you in case of chilly evenings, or if the weather suddenly turns less than ideal.
