Everything is organised – the flights, the hotel, the hat and the sunscreen. But what else are you going to wear? Holiday dressing can take a little more thought than you might anticipate. Creating attractive looks that are also totally relaxed and casual doesn’t happen by magic when you grab clothes from the wardrobe and shove them into a suitcase.
Wrap and wear
The wrap dress is one of those perennially stylish items that travels well and won’t look out of place at lunch on the beach or going out for cocktails later. Choose a bright print or a fresh floral design. For more tips on how to wear a wrap dress, see this article in The Guardian.
A pair of roomy linen trousers can be a versatile addition to your repertoire. Teamed with a bikini top, an oversized shirt or camisoles, this is a garment that easily goes from day to night. Jumpsuits are now a fashion must-have, and one of these could take you sightseeing and then on for drinks and dinner.
A shirt in white linen is one of those classic pieces that can be teamed with all manner of items, from a denim skirt in blue or back to different styles of jeans, or it can be thrown over a swimsuit when you want a cover-up. A pair of flattering denim shorts is another staple that can work hard for you on holiday. Pair them with the linen shirt, a bikini top or pull them on over a well-cut one-piece swimsuit and you are ready for sightseeing or lunch on a yacht.
