S/S18: Top Holiday Picks
Summer 2018 is all about the capsule wardrobe; we want to show you easy, comfortable, interchangeable pieces that make you feel confident and relaxed whilst looking oh-so-chic!
The Throw and Go Dress
The Maxi Dress should be a staple in everyone’s Summer wardrobe; comfortable and cool, this style of dress is a timeless classic for both beach holidays and city excursions. They are one of the most versatile summer pieces in my eyes. It’s so easy to throw on a maxi on top of a swimming costume after a long day drinking cocktails at the beach or dress up for the evening with some super extra earrings and heels. The best part about Maxi Dresses is that they hide any lumps and bumps we might have and don’t require us to bother shaving our legs – perfect!
The Straw Bag
The humble straw bag has had a major come back this year and we are crazy for it. From oversized slouchy totes to teeny tiny bucket bags, there is a straw bag for everyone. Pair with your maxi dress and espadrilles for a relaxed walk around town or use as a beach bag for your day of bliss.
The Re-Worked Espadrille
Espadrilles have long been an absolute holiday essential, undoubtedly because they are super comfy and go with just about anything. But this year espadrilles have had a serious glow- up. With platform soles and espadrilles fast becoming a ‘thing’, we can’t wait to get our hands on a pair of these for summer.
The Statement Shades
You simply can’t go on holiday without a pair of statement sunglasses to jazz up your pool-side look. This year we saw sunglasses take centre stage on so many of the major fashion runways for SS18. The likes of Stella McCartney, Gucci and Moschino showcased a range of eccentric sunnies, definitely a trend to hop on board with. if you want to stand out this summer. Look to ASOS and Zara to find some great affordable ways to adopt this sassy trend.
The One-Piece Swimsuit
It’s finally time to banish the bikini and go all out with a playful one piece. We count this trend as a blessing, as once again the one piece is both flattering and comfortable! It allows us to jump in the pool without the dreaded fear of losing our bikini top or pants, or worse, both!
