PASTEL HUES

From rose to bubble-gum, everyone’s wearing pink this season and Zimmermann’s floral mini with fluted sleeves looks as good at dinner as it does on the beach. Colour-block with Valentino’s studded bag to give it a pretty edge.

THE MATCHING SET

Reams of light, billowing fabric and a bohemian floral print in terracotta shades make this co-ordinating Zimmermann set a jet-setter’s vacation wardrobe staple. Go for bare-foot luxury by the beach or slip into some glittering sandals for evening.
