This season, Karen Millen's capsule holiday collection will revitalise your sojourn style in an instant. We've introduced beach-to-bar kaftans and playsuits, along with waist defining cropped tops and billowing maxi skirts for easy yet sophisticated holiday looks. The vibrant striped maxi dress should top your getaway checklist, ideally styled with a pair of our wear-everywhere espadrilles or sleek thong flip flops and one of our roomy bucket bags.

Colourful stripe Kaftan £110

Beachwear should be two things: stylish and easy-to-wear. This colourful stripe kaftan strikes the perfect balance between the two via a loose-fitting silhouette, a low V-neckline and a drawstring waist. Finish with espadrilles and a sunhat for optimum sunshine sophistication. 

Strappy Jumpsuit £180

This chic jumpsuit has skinny straps to highlight your shoulder and décolletage. A tie waist exaggerates your silhouette, while the loose-fitting legs look as good with cute sliders as they do with strappy heels.

Sheer & Drape Playsuit £125

The perfect holiday alternative to an LBD, KM's drape-front playsuit has a wrap silhouette that's pulled in by a pretty drawstring belt - complete with chic geometric sheer leaves that lead into stud-detailed cuffs. Look to espadrille wedges to bring a cool laid-back finish.

Maxi Skirt £99

This maxi skirt is timelessly feminine. It sits high on the waist before falling in soft pleats for elegant movement. Finished with dipped hems and eyelet details for a laid-back approach to the season's summer dressing. 

Colourful Stripe Maxi Dress £150

Perfect for those alfresco dinners, this colourful stripe maxi is the perfect holiday dress. It has a sleeveless silhouette - perfect for catching the last of the evening rays - with a gathered skirt and a flattering drawstring waist. 

Halterneck Drawstring Playsuit £145

Slip seamlessly from the beach to lunch in white halterneck playsuit. It's anchored by drawstrings at the waist with draping wrapped bodice design. Simply add a pair of espadrille wedges and a sunhat for easy summer sophistication. 

Pleated Panel Maxi Dress £250

Showcased in KM's SS17 Lookbook, this beautifully silky maxi dress was draped to perfection in the London atelier. Pleated panel inserts in contrasting tones add flow and interest, while the double straps draw the eye to the shoulders and décolletage. Allow this stunning dress to be the centre of attention by keeping accessories pared-back and clean.

Knot Side Top £90

Inject contemporary style into your holiday looks with this asymmetric vest top. It has a high-neckline and a loose-fitting shape that's perfect for taking you from beach to bar.
