So whether you’re going on a beach or city break, here are some essentials you should consider.
A Maxi Dress
Fashionistas all over the world are still continuing to wear maxi dresses in 2016. This essential item has become a favourite with celebrities and fashion designers alike and for good reason. They are comfortable to wear, flatter all figures and can be worn in varying weather conditions. Maxi dresses are also come in an array of shapes and designs which can suit a number of personal styles. They are the ideal summer essential because you can dress them up or down, which makes them highly versatile. You can wear them with heels and a belt for a night out or with an oversized scarf and sandals for a laid-back vibe. Choose a style and color that suits you and complements the rest of your wardrobe.
Cover-ups are another fashion must have for this year, and they make a brilliant summer holiday essential. They keep your shoulders and arms protected from the sun while also keeping you warm if the temperature drops during the evenings. You can wear them with a simple vest and shorts or palazzo trousers. They also look fabulous with a maxi or basic jersey dresses. Kimono sleeves, tassels, and sheer patterned fabrics continue to be popular as they create a more dressed up feel. You can wear them on the beach or while sightseeing around a major city and they will always look beautiful. They can also vary in length from cropped styles to full length. Try a few cover ups on in store to find a style and length that suits.
As cute as dresses are, they aren’t always practical for more active holiday activities. This is why every woman needs to own a good pair of denim shorts. Denim comes in a variety of colors and styles, as well as being durable. Like a maxi dress, they can be dressed up or down to suit the occasion. Wear with a classic white t-shirt and sandals for a day at the beach. Or team yours with wedges and a cover up for cocktails. High waisted are still the most popular style on the high street, but there are plenty of cuts to choose from.
With these items in your suitcase, you will feel fashionable throughout your holiday. While these essentials offer protection from the sun, it’s important to remember to wear sunscreen every day too. This will give you a healthy tan that will look amazing with any outfit you wear.
