Pleats Please

A vibrant, graphic dress will take you from brunch to beach with ease. Thanks to its multi-coloured stripes, we’d call this one a keeper.

Sunshine State

Great sunscreen is a travel must, always. Splurge on this multi-purpose face and body sunscreen with SPF 60. It’s not only fragrance- and paraben-free, but also water-resistant and has a nice matte finish. Plus, you won’t need to pack multiple tubes of lotion for your trip.

Easy Breezy

If you’re a fan of Uniqlo’s HeatTech range for snow sports and winter commutes, it’s time to get to know the Japanese retailer’s AIRism line. The affordable basics are designed to keep you feeling dry and comfortable in hot-weather climes.

Hat Trick

A raffia hat that’s cute enough to wear on and off the beach is always a good idea. We like that this made-in-Canada style is crafted from Madagascar raffia and rated UPF 50+ for bonus sun protection.
