FRINGE IT UP
Fringing is one of my favourite 70s trends – and it’s not just for festivals! Whether you layer this black lace detail top over a plain tank or go glamorous and add a pop of colour with this sequined chiffon top, fringed items are the perfect way to effortlessly notch up a simple outfit from a 6 to a 10.
Did you mean ‘officially the most comfortable trousers in the world’? Coming in a range of plain colours to bold patterns – my faves are the leopard print and zig zag pairs – the loose fit and light material make them top of my list for when holidaying somewhere hot and not wanting to sacrifice style for comfort.
WEAR THE LANGUAGE
Who cares whether you can speak it? I think it’s all about incorporating your destination into your outfit. (At least that’s the excuse we give ourselves when overspending on cute shirts!) I think these French themed slogan tees – ‘J’adore Paris’ and ‘L’amour De Ma Vie’ – are très chic and there’s no better time to wear them than when visiting tourist attractions.
Alongside maxi dresses, jumpsuits are a great bridge between the casual and formal side of occasions. These colourful floral and tartan one-pieces can easily be transitioned from day to night, with a floppy hat and sandals during the afternoon to chunky statement jewellery and heels in the evening.
Even if you’re visiting some ultra-tropical island, it can still get pretty chilly in the evening. Lightweight kimonos are the perfect stylish alternative to a summer jacket – my favourites are the lace kimono, rose print or even this fab suede piece if you’re looking for something a bit different.
