Charlotte Bickley Shares Her Must-have Summer Pieces

by Sophie and Charlotte Bickley

Welcome to the best, and my personal favorite, fashion season: summer! Why is summer my favorite season to dress you may ask? Because there are so many reasons to dress up and down, of course.

Your summer wardrobe requires a range of different trends, and thanks to some guidance from Tiffany Hsu, chief buying officer at Mytheresa, we’ve compiled a list of favorite picks. Whether you’re jetting off to Europe, going to the Hamptons, heading to a destination wedding, or staying local for summer parties, here’s a break down of how to be the most stylish in the room.

Ali cotton knit mididress, $840, Roberta Einer

Starting off with a brand you’ll be seeing a lot more of: Roberta Einer. I personally am obsessed with every item from this brand. What I love about this dress is not only does it hit the crochet mark—a big trend this summer—but this electric green color will work wonders for many different skin tones and suits all hair coloring.

HB cropped cotton-blend tank top, $150, WARDROBE.NYC x Hailey Bieber

In the theme of ‘quiet luxury,’ with an emphasis on thoughtful shopping and investment pieces, you’ll need a white tank you can rely on. This WARDROBE.NYC x Hailey Bieber number will be your perfect summer staple.

Paula’s Ibiza Medium logo raffia tote bag, $1,600, LOEWE

A number that both Tiffany and I agree on is from it brand, Loewe. Wear this bag with a strap for the day or carry it as a tote to the beach; you can’t go wrong with this versatile purchase.

Cutout gown, $647, MÔNOT

If you want to make an entrance this summer, and also be on trend, red is your color. This dress guarantees you’ll be best dressed for any summer events you might have…not to mention, it’s on sale!


Marinière striped miniskirt, $390, Jean Paul Gaultier

Whether you wear with this Jean Paul Gaultier striped skirt with a white-cropped button down or with a white tank, as above, this skirt speaks for itself. Appliqué flowers on clothes are also a reoccurring trend, and I’m here for it!

All Hamptons-goers know that a white mini is a staple and this one sure does the trick. The floral embroidery is elegant, but a low back makes it equally sexy. Soon-to-be-brides could also wear this for any events surrounding their wedding.

Indiya 100 leather sandal, $975, Jimmy Choo

These Jimmy Choo heels are a need for your summer wardrobe—don’t the little heart charms add a dainty feel?! For those who don’t love a high high heel, there’s also a mid-heel and a flat version of this shoe. Audrey Peters, one of my favorite influencers, calls these ‘Polly Pocket’ shoes and says they’re a must-have.

Printed cotton beach cover-up, $240, PUCCI

Pucci understood the hot girl summer assignment. I found this adorable cotton beach cover up with the signature Pucci print, which can be worn over a bikini or even as a headscarf.

Lotta Fluid shirt, $170, The Frankie Shop

Because everyone needs a button-down as a summer staple! This beige one by The Frankie Shop, is the perfect find.  With jeans or jean shorts, there’s your summer off-duty vibe: nailed.

Garcel printed jersey midi skirt, $247, DVF

Stand out with this number for a cute Hamptons lunch or even for a boating day in Europe. Pair the skirt back with a black or white top and the straw Altuzarra bag.

Halterneck maxi dress, $336, STAUD

This number from Staud is in the perfect shade to compliment your summer tan, and the material is super flattering too.

Irene sunglasses, $156, THE ATTICO x Linda Farrow

The pop of green on these sunnies is all you need to top off a look.


Watermill raffia shoulder bag, $276, Altuzarra

You always need a great handbag for summer. This raffia shoulder bag from Altuzarra is a perfect everyday bag with jean shorts or even could be worn with an evening ‘fit.

Semi-sheer lace maxi dress, $761, AYA MUSE

This adorable semi-sheer dress from Aya Muse is an ideal number to either dress up or dress down. You can very easily wear this over a bikini for day time, but I also love how it is styled on the site. This one has been added to my cart for sure!
I’m obsessed with JPG at the moment, its having a real comeback. All there items are super sexy with fun patterns for summer.

Printed triangle bikini top and printed high-rise bikini bottoms, $159 each, Jean Paul Gaultier

Cute, high rise without being too much coverage, and flattering? Say no more.

Crystal-embellished sequined minidress, $980, Rodarte

If you didn’t follow Sofia Richie Grainge’s honeymoon ‘fits, she was rocking some looks! I found this Rodarte number she wore in gold, and bonus: it’s on sale! The embellished starfish is the highlight of the dress and its ode to sea creatures makes it a perfect dress for summer. It’s giving major chic mermaid vibes.

The Knot suede thong sandals, $326, Toteme

Next on the list are these Toteme white sandals which are so cute and an absolute no-brainer for your seasonal wardrobe as they go with simply everything.

Last on my list is this hot pink number from Blumarine. The one-shoulder is super sexy and the hue is a vibe. For any summer wedding, this is a #1 pick.
