We've got everything you need for an easy holiday wardrobe
It’s official: We’ve waved goodbye to winter and the only chill we now face is that ice-cold margarita by the bar. Holiday season is fast approaching and whether your end destination is the Bahamas or Barcelona, there are only a couple of choices left to be made – packing that all important holiday wardrobe.
Now, there is just no point exploring that dream destination if your holiday pictures will be showcasing that dreary old summer dress that everyone has seen a million times. Instead, with a few simple steps and all the oh-so-right accessories, your Instagram snaps can rival even the likes of Elle Macpherson and co. Sound good?
We’ve included a mixture of clothes and accessories with a range of prices so if you prefer to save your spends for the beach bar, you still can, with prices starting from as little as £7.99 (you’re welcome). If like us your holiday starts at the airport, the purchasing of a new handbag should be at the top of your radar and we’re opting for this season’s chic wicker clutch, which will see you straight through to cocktail hour.
Sick of the same old bikinis? A beach holiday is the perfect excuse to buy new swimwear. The one-piece is as stylish as ever, and we like ours with a bold print to stand out from the more classic styles you’ll see on the beach.
You can’t mention holidays without mentioning dresses, so we’ve found some pretty styles for you, including a sundress in this summer’s hottest print, gingham. Sandals and espadrilles are getting a bit of a makeover for summer too, and we’re loving the fruit details on sandals.
From the hottest new swimsuit styles to the chicest cover-ups and the must-have new season summer accessories, we’ve got everything you need for an easy holiday wardrobe. Click through our round up to find your new holiday heroes…
