Summer means one thing: wrapping up work, school or university for a few weeks and jetting off to sunnier climes for that much-anticipated summer holiday.


If you’ve left all of your summer shopping until the last minute, you’re in luck because the MyBag sale features up to 60% off all of your holiday essentials.

Lauren Ralph Lauren Harboard Tote Bag, Lauren Ralph Lauren Woodbridge Classic Tote Bag, Modalu Just Beachy Shopper

A tote bag is a must for holiday; perfect for taking on the plane, to the beach or on a day trip, it will fit in everything you need and still look stylish. We love the Lauren Ralph Lauren Woodbridge Tote for a smart, fresh look, while these nautical styles from Modalu and Lauren Ralph Lauren scream summer.

Sunpocket Samoa Red Sunglasses, Wildfox Bianca Round Sunglasses, Eye Respect Shaun Matte Black Sunglasses

Sunglasses should be one of your number one accessories on holiday. Protecting your eyes from the sun, they also add an element of cool to any outfit (and can hide a multitude of sins if you’ve had a few too many late nights!) Go for a bold red style from Sunpocket (which folds up too, making it easy to carry), retro-inspired glamour from Wildfox, or classic black in this season’s favourite shape – round.

French Connection Embroidered Beach Dress, French Connection Signa Floppy Hat, M Missoni Bikini

No holiday wardrobe is complete without some gorgeous beachwear - we’re loving this classic M Missoni print bikini for a bright, summery style. French Connection is our go-to for the best cover ups; this wide brim straw hat will add glamour to the beach, while the white embroidered dress provides the perfect piece to go from beach-to-bar.

Kate Sheridan Tuck Tite Clutch Bag, Modalu Sandy Duffle Bag, BeckSondergaard Beaded Cross Body Bag

Last but not least, a bag or two for the evening is always a good idea. An on-trend bucket bag like this one from Modalu will work with most outfits, while Kate Sheridan’s plum bag works as both a clutch and cross body, and its rich colour will add an unusual contrast to your summer clothes. For a touch of glamour, look to this beaded cross body from BeckSondergaard; its aqua colours and intricate beading make it perfect for summer, and would look great with a little white or black dress.
