The start of a new season is a great excuse to go shopping, after all everyone gets bored of the same dark, thick jumpers that we wear in winter. Summer is the time for colors and fun! And if you have a summer holiday booked you will definitely need a few luxury new items in your suitcase. We are firm believers that everyone deserves to pamper themselves, which is why we have put together this list of the top 10 luxury accessories to make you feel like royalty on your summer holiday.

Handwoven Baskets

The perfect accessory for a trip to the pool or beach, handwoven baskets make a light and beautiful addition to any summer holiday. We especially love these individual embroidered and embellished baskets made in Morocco, available from a Lebanese shop in London called Comptoir Libanais .

Audrey Hepburn Hats

Look like a Hollywood superstar in a wide brimmed straw hat, as worn by Hollywood icon Audrey Hepburn. Available in many different colors, you can either choose the classic black with white stripe, or go for something bolder in red or turquoise. Either way you will ooze opulence.

Celebrity Sunglasses

Compliment an Audrey Hepburn hat with large celebrity style retro sunglasses and the paparazzi will be hunting you down in no time.

Luxury Watches

Add a bit of extra glamour to your holiday outfit with a luxury watch. Watch retailer Chrono24 has a wide range of luxury designer watches, all at affordable prices, which will be the perfect addition for a fancy beachside cocktail party.

Gorgeous Swimwear

No holiday is complete without the perfect bikini or swimsuit. No matter what kind of swimwear you choose it should make you feel fabulous. We especially love the new range of swimwear from Urban Outfitters, which has great options for bikinis and sophisticated swimsuits, for those who prefer to cover up.

Perfect Beach Dresses

From long flowy romantic dresses to short sundresses perfect for throwing over a wet swimsuit, every holiday deserves a brand new summer dress.

Decadent Skincare

Chances are you will be showing a bit more skin than normal on your summer holiday, so make sure your skin is glowing and indulge in exfoliators, moisturizers, face masks and anything else to make you feel pampered.

Perfect Picnic Gear

Lounge by the pool or in a park with a hamper, some sandwiches and a bottle of prosecco and you’ll be on your way to the best summer holiday ever. But first you will need the perfect picnic blanket and box.

Floral Prints

Floral prints have been taking over the catwalk and the high street this season. From floral dresses and skirts, to floral make-up bags and pens, if it’s got petals put it on your shopping list.

Hippy Hair

Hairclips decorated with daisies and roses, and floral headbands make for a look that combines bohemian with Greek Goddess. Put some flowers in your hair and sit back, relax, and enjoy the sunshine.
