This summer, we find serenity by stepping out into nature. Hazy sunshine, cool sea air and calming water help us find joy, happiness and allows us to take pleasure in what we wear once again. We embrace uplifting botanical prints, statement swimwear and bright co-ords, and ground them with core summer staples in soft neutrals — like the faithful summer dress, essential pair of shorts and go-to summer sandals. There are plenty of reasons to be joyful right now; the warmer weather, the great outdoors and mood-boosting fashion in this edit.
