Summer Styling: What to pack this holiday season

The weather is getting warmer and the Summer season is getting closer, with holidays on the horizon it’s time to update your winter wardrobe and give it a new lease of life ready for sunning it by the pool or an evening out at your favourite holiday restaurant followed by a few drinks at the ‘local’ bar before. Perhaps you’re heading to one of the party capitals of the world and the club scene calls for some high fashion.


This style is a popular season on season when it comes to holiday wear and a fringed waistcoat over a bikini teamed with a pair of wedges has become a holiday essential. With all age ranges being able to pull this look off it’s simple yet sophisticated. Add an oversized sun hat and big glasses for that bohemian 70s style Hollywood film star look.

Harem Trousers

A great pair of harem trousers are equally as practical for day wear or night wear. When picking the perfect holiday getaway harem trousers for a tailored yet comfortable look a floral pattern always looks great with a plain vest or camisole, add an oversized necklace. For daywear throw on some flat sandals and to transition from day to evening wear then change your footwear to some Summer wedges. 


Whatever your shape there’s a swimwear style for everybody. From bikinis, monokinis, tankinis, swimsuits and more. If you’re wanting to look your best for poolside of for flaunting it at the beach then finding swimwear to suit your shape will help boost your body confidence with many swimwear brands offering a complimentary styling service and guides to finding swimwear for your shape. Choosing a style to flatter is one thing then finding patterns to your taste is another. Try block colouring in neutral and monotones for a capsule wardrobe in your suitcase and easy styling to compliment your beachwear.
