Whether you’re a surfing-pro looking to catch the perfect wave, or a sun-seeker who wants to look the part on the beach, your fashion choices are one of the most exciting parts of holiday preparations.
With the help from summer fashion experts, Ann’s Cottage, we’ve rounded up four chic outfit ideas that will ensure you look uber-cool on your next vacation.
Look 1: Beach Please
A loose-fitting sun dress is a holiday essential that can take you from the beach to the bar. Layer it up over your bikini and style with flip-flops, a floppy hat and oversized sunglasses for a relaxed day time look. Or, elevate the outfit with a wedge heel, layered necklaces and an embellished clutch for a night sipping cocktails at the local beach bars.
Look 2: Hey Shorty
Denim shorts are potentially the most versatile item you can have in your holiday wardrobe. Choose a lightweight fabric, in a pale blue wash to make a summery style statement. Pair your shorts with a simple tank-top, or a floral off-the shoulder number, in this season’s hottest colour – yellow! This laid-back look is ideal for a day of sightseeing, just don’t forget your SPF!
Look 3: Those Summer Nights
As the sun sets and the weather cools down, an elegant maxi dress is the perfect option for dinner and drinks. Dark floral prints are timeless and long billowing, flowy sleeves create a bo-ho vibe. Style the look with a coordinating floppy hat and ankle boots and you’ll be a style sensation.
Look 4: Over-haul
For a playful look that screams summer, white denim dungarees are an absolute must. A practical option for both beach days and city breaks, white overalls look extra cute styled with a high-necked tank top, crop-tee’s, or a silky blouse for a dressy combination. Candy coloured plimsolls, like these Vans, looks super trendy, or you could opt for glitzy sandals to add a feminine edge to the outfit.
