Five summer must haves with Jacinta Emms
Lately things have really been heating up and whilst we love to dream about spending our days poolside, often summer demands more than a swimsuit and your favourite kaftan. Just thinking about coordinating an outfit on our steamy days can start to feel humid, but with the right pieces getting dressed will be a breeze.
Start with some bold earrings, these are a must, not only for summer but to freshen your look whatever the season. A fabulous pair of earrings is the simplest most eye-catching way to individualise any ensemble.

Choose large colourful prints like floral or geometric shapes, but it’s also a good idea to keep an eye out for wrap styles; they are relaxed, carefree and so easy to adjust to fit your waist perfectly.
