Here are all the gorgeous pieces for poolside perfection, all chosen from the brilliant brands on the SoSensational Directory...
BasketBasket brings St Barth’s and St Tropez-style chic to your poolside outfits with their range of gorgeous, leather-trim baskets.
The Hampshire-based, family-run business sources their eco-friendly, and beautiful baskets in Morocco and Ghana, where they are made by artisans using all-natural materials. BasketBasket operates a fair-trade policy, paying a much higher rate for the Ghanaian baskets than the women who make them receive in the local markets, so all baskets purchased by BasketBasket help to improve their lives.
As well as looking utterly chic, these beautiful baskets, available lined or unlined, are perfect for all your beach essentials. And these are brilliantly priced, too, with big baskets from £20. SHOP BASKET BASKET NOW
