Now that summer is here, I know that a lot of you will be going away for a week or two with your family or friends. Naturally, you will want to look your best, which means that many of you will want to treat yourselves to a couple of new outfits to wear. So, to give you a few ideas I have put together this quick Summer holiday fashion post.
The right swimwear
When we go away most of us spend time around the pool or by the sea, which means the right swimwear is essential. This year, there are lots of great looking one-pieces and bikinis to choose from, so you should not find it hard to find something you like. There are some super, ultra-modern swimsuits available from JD Wiliams. Take the time to find something that flatters your figure. You want to feel comfortable and confident when you are on the beach, so that you can relax and enjoy yourself without worrying too much about what you look like!
It is always worth taking some sort of cover up to wear over the top of your swimwear. That way you can easily take a break from sunbathing, or reading under a beach umbrella, and go for lunch in a nearby restaurant. Sarongs still work well for this, but this year, cover-up dresses are far more fashionable. They are really lovely, and can just as easily be worn on a cool evening, as for a night on the town. You need to make sure you are protected from the sun, so always pack some sort of hat, sunglasses, sun cream and don’t forget the sun block for your lips! It is also a good idea to hire a beach umbrella or take a compact shade tent with you.
Something to wear on daytrips
If you are planning to see the sights you want to be comfortable. Dresses are a good option for nights out, but for day trips you are generally better off packing two-piece outfits. This year, you are spoilt for choice when it comes to tops; there are blouses available, but most designers have focused on short or sleeveless tops. Cold shoulder and vest cuts are by far the most popular. These look great whether you wear them with shorts, a skirt, or even with trousers.
Something for a night out
If you are lucky enough to be taking someone with you who does not mind babysitting the kids you can go clubbing or take the time to enjoy a local fiesta, or Karaoke bar. Whatever your ideal night out is, spend a bit of cash on a really special outfit. With luck, you will get the chance to wear it a few more times when you get back home.
When planning your holiday wardrobe, don´t forget about your travel clothes. You need to be comfortable as well as look good. A tight pencil skirt will look fantastic when you put it on in the morning, but it is likely to crease badly and cut into you if you are going to be sitting on a plane for hours. Try to pick something loose and layer up for that cold blast when you land home!
So there you have it! Some great advice for this year’s holiday fashion. There is so much out there in the shops that picking some great mix and match pieces is a great idea to do. Not too much packaging but lots of different outfits to choose from!
