Summer wardrobe essentials – the top five that are in the suitcase this summer: Pure linen long-sleeved t-shirts, my favourites this summer are white and khaki; Cashmere jumper and shawl, a must for chilly evenings; Breton stripes are always in style; Capri trousers work for every type of holiday, boating, beaches, glamping in the Home Counties. Pick the colour to suit the environment: khaki for safari, navy for nautical. A good dress, it’s always wise to pop a dress into the suitcase.

1. Winser’s linen t-shirts are short- or long-sleeved, one has a soft, rounded neckline and the other a V. The long sleeved is £75, in black, midnight navy, white and khaki. The short sleeved, £69, in black, midnight navy, white, ivory, hibiscus, natural and khaki. These are a step up from your basic t-shirt and take up so little room in the suitcase we can fit in several colours.

2. Never travel without cashmere is my packing motto. The Audrey Short Sleeved Scoop Neck Jumper is a new addition to the collection, £129. The Audrey Cashmere Jumper is a favourite at £195, as is the Cashmere Wrap, £150. These three pieces are all available in this season’s hottest fashion colour, yellow, but of course there is a myriad other shades to choose from.

3. I have never been introduced to a Breton stripe I haven’t liked. Two winners from Winser: Cotton Striped T-Shirt, £59, long sleeved, easy to wear, four stripe options. Cotton Casual Stripe Jumper, £69, this is gorgeous, light and soft with long sleeves, a fashionable shape and the right proportion to wear with your white Capri trousers.

4. Cotton Twill Capri Trousers, £79, perfect for every holiday eventuality: day, evening, travel. Black, midnight navy, stone, khaki and white.

5. Best Holiday Frocks. Parisian Striped Dress, £99, this easy dress is my pick for beach-friendly. Cotton Textured V Neck Shift Dress, £79, in midnight navy, Hollywood red, and white, it’s another great holiday dress for beach or bar. The Cotton Striped Jersey Dress, £79, has sleeves and is fitted but is as comfortable as a t-shirt and would fulfil a lot of roles for weekending or holidays. This is in black/ivory, white/Winser blue and white/midnight navy.
