So, I've partnered up with Pretty Shady to show you guys my favourite looks for summer, that are on trend but more importantly sun-safe. Each look focuses on one of the five key ways about sun protection!

A wide brimmed hat protects face, neck and ears
Luckily for us a big wide hat is not only a key wardrobe essential, but also keeps you shaded from our beautiful sun. I've featured this one by Lack of Colour plenty on my blog, and I'd definitely take it from the streets to the beach as well. The shape is nice and big and the material is also stiff and structured, so you can make sure it gives you enough coverage.
Sun-protective clothing protects the rest of your body
For those times when you're not out in the lovely blue water, it's also a good idea to cover up the rest of your body. A kaftan is the ideal solution, with the lightweight and flowy texture. I've had this lovely coral and pink one by Wish for years now and it's the perfect thing to take from the beach to the bar.
Apply SPF 30+ water resistant sunscreen 20 mins before heading out
Sun cream is one of those absolute sun-protecting essentials that is light and compact enough to fit in your beach bag- so you have no excuse to be without it! :) This sunscreen by Pretty Shady is non-greasy, small and subtle, and fits perfectly in my beach bag or handbag.
Make sure the sunscreen is at least SPF 30+, water resistant, and apply it 20 mins before going out, and then reapply every 2 hours.
Sunglasses protect your eyes from harmful solar radiation
Don't skimp on the sunnies! These shades will be coming with me everywhere I go this summer for those hot bright days.
Find shade when you can
And don't forget to stay in the shade as much as you can of course! A big sun umbrella really helps when there's no shelter- allowing you to stay out in the warm sun and keep protected at the same time :)
