The beach called. It is asking when you are going to arrive. If you are heading off for some summer sunshine this year then 2016 styles make it easier than ever to look great for less. Rock a capsule wardrobe and all keep all eyes on you as the temperature rises.
The eyes have it
Nothing hides the excesses of a big night than a great pair of shades. As well as keeping your eyes safe from harsh UV rays, a stylish pair of Ray Ban sunglasses will spare your blushes when you snap that holiday selfie. No-one wants to look back on their big trip with a touch of “morning after the night before” around the eyes. Totally worth it.
A maxi skirt is a go-to basic for any chic lady’s summer wardrobe. Whether you’re dressing it up with a statement necklace, mixing and matching with a solid or printed top, or switching in your favourite pair of wedges the maxi skirt can do it all. And if you’re feeling more slouchy than sleek then throw on a sleeveless t-shirt for a slender but sassy look.
You simply have to make space for two or three of these in your case – they will literally make or break your outfit options. They are great for travel days, rides out on sightseeing tours and you can quickly mix it up to go from day to night, pair them with denim cut-offs, your maxi or a fitted pair of cotton trousers. Effortless!
Hooray for denim
Always versatile and never out of fashion, a good pair of jeans are worth their weight in gold. Temperature drops at night? No problem. Starting to rain? Jeans have it covered. With an amazing range of cuts, colours and washes available in store this summer there’s bound to be a pair that rocks your holiday wardrobe world.
Always bring your flats!
Sadly, you might – at some point – have to come off the beach. I know, I know – it’ll be hard but you may have to eat, or drink, or dance or something. Kick off your flip-flops and get into a comfy pair of flats while you explore the local nightlife. Your feet will thank you for it at the end of the night!
Choose a smart bag
This one can be tricky to navigate. You’ll probably be carrying a guidebook, some cash, water and maybe your passport so you’ll need something that looks cool but isn’t easily parted with. Choose something that sits across your body and not only can you keep an eye on your valuables but it will keep out of your way when walking. A neutral colour like tan or black should chime with all of your holiday fashion choices.
So, that’s the wardrobe sorted. Time now to get that bikini bought and your airport taxi booked. Quick pro tip to finish: don’t choose the prettiest suitcase, pick the lightest. A smart choice now could be the weight you need to get that pair of shoes in under your airline weight limit. You’re welcome!
