Got holiday plans? We’ve got the style to match. Whether you’re jet-setting to white sandy beaches for a spot of relaxation or heading for a weekend city escape, getaway season is officially calling. Your wardrobe on the other hand, may not be quite so prepared. With limited space in your suitcase, you’ll need to master the art of destination dressing, fast. Thankfully, with the help of these key pieces you’ll be ready to chase the sun in no time…
Heading to the pool? Or going from beach to bar? Then you’ll need to ensure a beautiful cover-up is on your list. Opt for cool kimonos and kaftans in tropical colours and bold prints that instantly make you feel like you’re ‘on holiday’. Tie-dye prints and tassel trims instantly add style points.
Set those feet free (pedicure is mandatory) with an essential pair of summer sandals. Whether you’re ticking off this summer’s trend for sporty sliders updated with colourful, contrasting straps or opting for chic wear-with-everything mules, there’s a pair to covet whatever your vibe.
3. Beach bags
A jet-set essential, you’ll need a great beach bag to hero your holiday wardrobe and carry your essentials in style. With raffia and basket bags stealing the spotlight this season, this summer’s beach bags are so hot you might just want to take them to work with you… or everywhere, for that matter.
Shopping for swimsuits is no easy task. Our advice? Stick to styles that suit your shape; bandeaus with ruffles work wonders for athletic frames, whereas hourglasses can wear just about anything. Crop tops, block colours and lace-up details are the key trends to look out for this summer.
