Summer Style β˜€οΈ

Cover Photo

Hi everyone! I haven’t posted in a while as I have been busy with university but I am pleased to say that I can finally come back as I have passed my first year!!! So this means…HOLIDAY TIMEEEEE ❀

I am off to Zante in a couple of weeks so have been searching for the perfect things to wear. As the weather is so rubbish in England at the moment, buying summer clothes can be tricky when you are shopping on a rainy day. So here is some much needed inspiration for your holiday style this summer.

From swimwear and cover-ups to playsuits and shorts, it is hard to know what is really needed when trying to pack your suitcase. No more panic buying. Know exactly what you want and exactly where to get it from. So here are some of my favourite summer style steals to get you ready for some fun in the sun…

Swimwear

Swimwear

Swimwear is obviously a must for any holiday. With so many to choose from, it is hard to know which ones to take without overloading your suitcase with ‘just in case’ bikinis. So taking a variety of styles with you means you have swimwear for all occasions.

Triangle bikinis and bandeau bikinis are perfect for lounging round the pool and sunbathing. For me, they are the comfiest to wear and are also so easy to shop for as you can look stylish for less with a variety of different colours in Primark. High neck bikinis are ideal for wearing as they also look good as a top with a pair of shorts. Swimsuits are great for pool parties as they are stylish and sexy but again look good if you decide to put on a pair of shorts.

Playsuits and Jumpsuits

Playsuits and Jumpsuits

Playsuits and jumpsuits are two of my favourite styles of clothing to wear. They are comfy and take minimal effort. I always say that simple is stylish and sometimes less is more, and with playsuits and jumpsuits this is definitely the case. I always think a block colour is perfect for dressing up and patterns are great for holiday beach days. Bardot is a trend at the moment that I cannot get enough of so the extra detail of the frill can add that bit extra without taking your jumpsuit over the top. This can also be done with a wide leg trouser. Also a simple bandeau style playsuit can be kept simple or taken up a notch by adding a chic choker neck.

Tops

Tops

It is important to get the right tops for your holiday as you don’t want to be wearing anything too heavy. Cami’s are a great buy as they come in so many different colours and are often a reasonable price! They are also a good investment buy as they can be worn with many different items and for many different occasions. Lace up has also been another major trend of 2016 so taking this from winter to summer is something I love, combining with a camisole to make a cool yet pretty top. Also many people can see chokers as dark and gothic, however I love adding this look to a light top in a pastel colour. This top from Miss Selfridge styles that look perfectly with the lace detail at the bottom making it super summery.

Bottoms

Bottoms

Bottoms are also a tricky part of a holiday as they are mostly a cover up. A pair of denim shorts are just as important as a pair of jeans; they have to be comfy and go with most things you own. They are perfect for a holiday as they are so easy to put on and go with almost any top. Culottes, as I have shared in a previous post, are an item of clothing that I absolutely adore as they look so classy and also take minimal effort. A pale shade is great for holiday as it can show off your tan! Now you may be thinking full length trousers is a no go on holiday as they will be too warm. However, a pair of flare trousers with a high waist teamed up with a cute lace bralet is a perfect look for at night.
