It's time to put on your OOO and make for the beach. But first, let's pack. The best thing about summer styles is that they take up less room in the suitcase and leave more room for options. Holidays are for having fun, so start with your clothes. We've imagined festive wardrobes for each of our current favourite summer destinations.
A popular spot for both Italians and foreigners, Puglia and its varied landscapes have much to offer. Explore the architecture in the ancient villages like Foggia or Bari, go snorkelling or cliff jumping in Polignano al Mare, or enjoy a food festival any night of the week in July and August in Salento. Any holiday in the land of la dolce vita is an excuse to pull out vintage styles and feminine dresses.
The iconic summer party destination attracts an international crowd of artists, DJs, designers and other creatives. The White Isle style is unlike anywhere else and just as iconic as the beautiful beaches, seaside restaurants and heady nightlife. Visitors channel their inner bohemian and dress accordingly. If you don't pack enough, don't despair, there are plenty of chic boutiques in the old town.

The coastal city is the perfect destination for indecisive weekenders. There's a young and laid-back energy with an emerging artistic crowd and established foodie scene. There are also gorgeous beaches just a short trip from the city, either in Estoril or Cascais. Dress for a relaxing day of aimlessly wandering, in clothes that can take you from day to night if need be.
