    Is there anything more summery than the look and taste of sun-drenched figs? Whether it’s lighting up Diptyque’s Figuier candle or spotting them everywhere as you waltz around southern Europe, we’re obsessed. And with fashion brands such as JW Anderson incorporating fruit motifs into their summer collections, it’s no wonder Visir’s fig-print dress has caught our eye..

    Available at a special Stylist price, this is a loose-fit wrap dress bursting with stylish detailing, from the V-neck to the cuffed sleeves. But most flattering of all? The thick side tie, which makes for a playful detail without any real effort having to be made. Whenever the sun’s out, we know what we’ll be throwing on.

    The Drop: Bonita Personalised Boater Hat

    Summer holiday wardrobes scream joy: the linen shirts, comfy maxi dresses and oversized sunnies. But the accessory that’s most important as you relax beachside is, of course, a hat that leans into the oversized trend – ideal for reading, sleeping and people watching without being glaringly obvious. Here’s where Bonita’s monogrammed straw boater comes in.

    Equal parts stylish and practical for shielding from the sun, choose between either a cream or black coloured band to match with your black one-piece swimsuits or neutral outfits.

    Better still, you can monogram four characters on the front, whether it’s your name or initials. Thanks to the timeless style, this is a hat you’ll return to for years to come.
