Current crush: Paolita’s 2013 beachwear collection

Skull Tank Dress, £159,

Skull Tank Dress, £159,

As long as the sun’s still shining, we’re not letting go of summer, and right now we’re loving the gorgeous summer kaftan and beachwear collection from Paolita.

We’ve been fans of the bold colours and intricate patterns of Paolita’s swimwear for the last couple of years, but it’s the brand’s growing coordinated beachwear collection that has us hooked this year.

Inspired by a love of travel and folk patterns, the collection features everything from Art Deco geometrics to a bright, fun skull print (pictured) influenced by designer Anna Paola’s Mexican heritage in styles that range from cute shorts and little tank dresses to floaty kaftans, maxi dresses and summer hoodies.

The colours are all about summer, with bright yellows and blues sitting alongside pinks and sunset orange, and the fabrics and cuts are so light and airy that these cover ups will keep you comfortably cool in even the hottest weather – which is what they are making us dream about!

Most pieces come in one size, except the shorts, and prices range from £60 for the shorts to £185 for the kaftan maxi dress. Buy from or visit the brand’s London boutique at 18 New Quebec Street, W1H 7RX.
