Weekly Wish List: Crayon Brights

Beach Bum Swimsuit Wish List


Be a Beach Bum

Blue tiered dress by Whistles | Pom pom tote bag by Nannacay | Yellow pleated skirt by Warehouse | Liberte T-shirt by Whistles | Rainbow stripe top by New Look | Palm leaf cushion by Jan Constantine | Floral trousers by Erdem | Suede sandals by Topshop | Beach Bum swimsuit by J.Crew


This summer I’ve developed a real obsession with bold, crayon brights. My wardrobe is packed full of colour and print, but I’m currently lacking dramatic blocks of cheerful, primary hues. And that’s why Whistles’ tiered blue dress and Warehouse’s yellow pleated skirt are topping my wish list, this week.

Both designs make such a confident style statement, and require minimal accessories. I’d pair the dress with delicate tan sandals and a simple basket bag; and throw the skirt together with a plain white tee, sneakers and a pop of red lipstick!

Also catching my eye, this week, is J.Crew’s playful Beach Bum swimsuit (in-keeping with the crayon brights theme). And how could anyone resist Erdem’s floral trousers? At £650 they’re definitely a high-ticket item. But if you’re tempted to make the investment I think they’re a piece you’d treasure forever, and look forward to wearing every spring/summer. How would you style them?
