Martha Ward Shares The Summer Pieces She Loves Right Now

Edited By
“I love a minidress on holiday. This is nice and roomy, too, so won’t cling to you in the heat. Cornflower blue is one of my favourite shades, but oddly hard to come by.”
“I’m very partial to a water mist, particularly when travelling. This is the ultimate for face and body (believe me, I’ve tried many). It’s as powerful as a serum. Energising, hydrating, soothing.”
“A fun snapshot, polaroid-style camera from the best lens makers in the world, Leica. It provides instant and great little holiday souvenirs.”
“I love a round, vintage-inspired, oversized lunette. And alongside its vast vintage archive, Linda Farrow has its own collection of brilliant sunglasses.”
“I’m always cold on flights, so never without a scarf or wrap. They’re also jolly handy for an evening, as there can often be a nip in the air. This is super-soft and a sunny lemon hue.”
“Summer calls for raffia. Along with a basket, there’s nothing I love more for the season. Sézane does the best raffia and the best summer baskets. My go-to.”
“Understated. Comfy. Durable. Classic. Everything you need from a summer sandal. I look no further than Ancient Greek.”
“I have used this Nivea cream for as long as I can remember. A small pot is always in my handbag, a tube of it sits by my bed and a big tub comes with me on my travels. Skin softening with a delicious scent. And, critically, not sticky!”
“I discovered the brilliant Cossie + Co at their very incarnation and have been spreading the word ever since as they are such long-lasting pieces, which is rare in swimwear.”
“I am a sucker for a white dress – and even more so for one with a touch of embroidery. From a brand whose clothing is crafted responsibly, this organic cotton number ticks all my boxes.”
