‘I’m all about whimsical accessories on vacation. Rainbow sliders, quirky shades, a crocheted sun hat and vintage-style gingham bikini will add a colour and personality to timeless summer classics, from denim cut-offs to a love-forever linen dress. It’s those playful, unexpected additions that add instant sunshine spirit to your look’ – Lucinda Chambers

Serena’s Picks

‘When I’m heading for the sun, I look for versatile designs that I can throw on and go: a breezy, sky-blue sundress slipped over a floral bikini will take me from beach to boat to bar. Add polished details – a luxe straw tote, gleaming leather slides and retro shades – and you have effortless beach chic in the bag’ – Serena Hood
