Ever on the lookout, team EW brings you their summer must-haves.

Sophia Serin | Senior Editor: Gap Sun Hat

With the Corsica beaches calling, my face needs some serious protection against damaging sunrays. Enter this fabulously floppy hat. Chic enough for an afternoon aperitif and cool enough for the beach, this hat will be travelling with me every step of the way this summer.

Alexandria Gouveia | Deputy Editor : Omega Ladymatic Watch

Anyone who knows me knows that I have a penchant for watches, usually of the retro variety, but I feel it’s time (pun intended) to smarten up. I just love this Ladymatic timepiece – elegant while still incredibly stylish, it can be dressed up or down making it my accessory of choice this season.

Jade Sprowson | Style Editor : Ralph Lauren Tote

In my opinion bright is always right, especially when this punchy colour comes in the form of the Soft Ricky bag by Ralph Lauren. You’ll see me swinging this style statement around town all summer.

Elizabeth Whiston-Dew | Beauty Editor : Manolo Blahnik Courts

With dainty shoes making a welcome comeback on the fashion scene, I’m falling head-over-heels for the Hangisi Manolo Blahnik courts. These precious satin and jewel-encrusted pointies come in a variety of jewel tones: think emerald, amethyst, sapphire and hot coral. The only question is which haute hue to treasure.

Annah Cuthbert | Assistant Online Editor : Oversized Sunnies 

As soon as the UAE summer kicks in, I immediately cut my beauty routine in half and heavy eye make-up is usually the first thing to go. Swapping eyeliner and mascara for big shades, I tend to stock up on cheap and cheerful styles to throw in each handbag. These oversized cat-eye wayfarers are my current favourite. You can buy a similar style for Dhs92 by Jeepers Peepers at ASOS
