I Looked Through Everything On NET-A-PORTER to Create the Perfect Summer Capsule

Finally, it’s summer. Well, not quite but as we missed out on trips over the past few years, I’m starting on my holiday prep early. Moving away from office looks and muted colours, I’m diving into bold bright tones and feel-good prints. I’ve scoured the NET-A-PORTER website for the best hot-weather pieces that will look sleek and stylish for all kinds of adventures. Whether you’re planning an island retreat, or a sunny staycation, these 23 pieces will have you covered all summer long. 

When considering what my suitcase will hold I always start with the essentials, and thankfully NET-A-PORTER has my packing list covered this summer. For diving into pools or braving the British coastline, a bright swimsuit is always a summer must have. A basket bag will carry all your beach supplies, or snacks for a picnic in the park. While comfortable and stylish sandals take over from staple trainers for bright days, whether home or away.

After the essentials, the real fun begins. Throw-on dresses reign supreme over summer as ‘maximum style with minimum effort’ remains my constant motto. Playful printed tops look amazing with wide-leg trousers, and integrate easily back into your everyday wardrobe with jeans. Last, but definitely not least, turn to colourful accessories to tie it all together. Read on for my curated list of summer essentials  and bold extras for summer 2022, courtesy of NET-A-PORTER.
