Your holiday wardrobe: as recommended by Woman & Home

We asked Julia May Morgan, Fashion Director for Woman & Home Magazine, to pick her favourite things from our new summer collection. Find out what she chose and why in our guest blog…

Summer starts here! Stylish, sophisticated and spot on for your escape to the sun, here’s how to put together your holiday wardrobe without a single worry about what goes with what. Flattering swimwear, A-list accessories and versatile separates you can throw on any time of day… Lands’ End’s high summer collection ticks the boxes for every age, shape, size and style.

Woman & Home’s ultimate buy…

Slender Wrap Front Ombre Swimsuit  (image above) £130-135

Nothing shows off enviable curves like a wrap front style. We love it as it  keeps all your secrets safe, but your best bits on show whilst you lounge poolside. Glamorous and grown-up, you can’t go wrong. Feel figure confident front and back with a low-scoop back-detail and wave goodbye to tan lines.

Straw tassel sun hat £55

Beach, bar or lying by the pool… up the glam factor instantly with an oversized hat. The bigger your brim the better and this summer’s buzzword is straw. Go big or go home, and with colourful tassel details, you’re totally on trend. Work it with a simple summer dress or go all out with a curve-creating one piece.

Beach living high waist tummy control bottoms and bandeau bikini top £35-£40

Comfortable, chic and the best bit – convertible… this is the holiday bikini we’ve all been dreaming about. Wear strapless to avoid those strap marks.  It’s flattering and it’s fashionable so all areas are covered. Look for briefs with a slightly higher waist and tummy control to keep you feeling confident.

Woman & Home’s Fashion Director’s pick…

Rolled sleeve soft blouse £55

Loose, luxurious and in easy to dress up or down navy… you can sling this blouse over anything. For a more laid-back look wear it open over your favourite bikini or button it up with smart, printed shorts for a more formal feel. The best bit? You can roll back those sleeves. Sneaky, secret buttons mean the hard work is done for you… alter your sleeve length neatly, depending on the weather.

Woman & Home loves…

Underwire wrap tankini top £45-50

Racy red will always get you noticed, but the trick about a tankini that you can really trust is that it will keep you covered. A criss-cross front is guaranteed to flatter a bigger bust, and hidden tummy control will instantly create a smooth and sexy silhouette.

Natural canvas tote bag £20

Sunnies – check, kaftan – check, beach towel – check… on those long summer days you really need a big bag you can sling everything in. Look for neutral tones that will go with everything, whatever you’re wearing, and just a pop of colour on the trim.

Woman & Home’s holiday wardrobe staple…

Women’s denim shorts £45

Medium Zip Top Canvas Tote Shopper

Your ideal 'bag for life!' Our Tote Bag has been getting a lot of praise recently. Fortunately it's made of tough cotton canvas, which itself is fortified with a reinforced base and handles, so it's more than tough enough to carry the weight of expectation, not to mention your shopping and holiday essentials. Fitted with an inside key fob, it's also been treated to an antimicrobial finish that helps keep it clean and fresh-smelling. So whether you're using it for trips to the supermarket or the seaside, it's your ideal 'bag for life'.
