Summer Holiday Styling
Sunshine, breezy beach days, alfresco dining and not a care in the world; is there anything better than summer holidays? Well, if you are lucky enough to be jetting off out of town this summer to enjoy a well-earned break, or just happen to be soaking up the sun locally, there's plenty of ways to embrace relaxed summer style. Here's some of our faves:
The Maxi Dress
A good maxi dress is the epitome of laid-back summer style. I mean, what's not to love about throwing on one piece of clothing and being dressed, ready to head out the door?! With no need to co-ordinate separates and pack additional pieces in your suitcase, the maxi dress makes the most of your time, giving you a fabulously put-together look with minimal effort. Which means there's more time to spend poolside or exploring your holiday destination!
Another reason to love the maxi is that with a simple change of shoe and the addition of some glitzy jewellery, you can transition your daytime sightseeing outfit, to a night out on the town.
Perfect for strolling around your holiday destination by day, the sundress is the workhorse of any summer holiday wardrobe. Bright colours and floral prints are the perfect way to channel the warm weather and reflect your surroundings; team with a pair of sandals or white sneakers for all-day comfort and you're good to go.
Whether you're sightseeing, shopping or cafe dining, a cute sundress is your dress and go option throughout summer. And, if the weather does happen to turn chilly, simply add a denim jacket by day or leather by night.
All Things White
If there's a colour that screams summer, it has to be white. With a refreshing, relaxed outlook, white is a go-to as the temperature warms up for good reason. White summer dresses, white linen shirts, white jeans or casual white tops, provide the perfect blank canvas to stay cool whilst looking white hot! Team brightly coloured accessories with your white for the ultimate in casual chic this summer.
Cheers to Chambray
When I think summer casual, I always think of denim as a style staple. However, when the temperature really heats up, denim can get a little too hot and heavy for most peoples liking. Enter, chambray - the cooler, lighter and more fashionable cousin to denim! With its smooth, lightweight cotton weave, they'll be no stiff collar cramping your summer style when stepping out in chambray. Breeze through the hot summer days in a chambray shirt, dress, skirt or jumpsuit.
Chambray can also be considered a neutral, so it's great to pack in your suitcase and will team well with any other colour. Versatile, lightweight and fashionable - chambray is the perfect combination and should be a must for your summer holiday wardrobe.
