Hair accessories

Elevate your look with accessories that beat the heat. Keep your hair down with a pink bucket hat from Gucci. The extended hat trim blocks just enough UV and the monochrome Gucci print with the gold logo on the side gives you that designer touch.

If you prefer to let you luscious locks shine but still want to keep it manageable, you can tie it up with an Emi Jay claw clip. Those from Emi Jay’s adorable sweetheart clip series add a nice touch of cute and girly without veering into kids territory.

Eyewear

If you are visiting one of the Jentle Salon Pop-up events, make sure you pick up one of Gentle Monster’s shades for hitting the beach. We recommend the Jennie Cheveux De Nini sunglasses, as the customisable charms and the dusty pink colour combination are a flattering for most face shapes and skin tones.

If frames are not your preference, then go rimless with the Miu Miu Runway sunglasses. These cool shades add to your mystique and protect your eyes from those pesky UV rays, a double win in our books.

Swimwear

Makes this summer all about martinis and bikinis. While most of you have your drinks sorted out, we could all use pointers for swimwear. The pink Versace Barocco two-pieces and Dioriviera one-piece is our top pick for you. The Barocco print adds a touch of sophistication to a medium coverage silhouette.

If one piece swimsuits are more your thing, then the Dioriviera One-Piece Swimsuit should be a better choice. The Dior piece plays with a bold Sauvage print in a more conservative fit. It is both figure flattering and suitable for a variety of skin tones.

Footwear

A summer glow-up needs to be from head to toe, so we can’t neglect the footwear even if we are at the beace! The baby pink Tory Burch’s Roxanne Jelly Sandal is perfect for a light and cheerful feel.

But if you are looking for a mix of style and sportiness, the Madrid Big Buckle series from Birkenstock is what you need. Go for the pink for a distinctly feminine touch that ties your whole hot girl summer look together.

Bag

Finishing off our list, we have two voluminous bags in both baby pink and hot pink. With a fishnet outer layer and an inner nylon pouch, the two-in-one Balenciaga Women’s 24/7 Large Tote Bag offers you enough space to pack all your essentials.

You can opt for the Loewe hand woven basket bag in hot pink for that beach holiday feel. The Iraca palm leaves gives it a nice texture and the pink keeps it chic.
