With us at SPICE celebrating a month of all things Summer, of course holidays are on our mind, so helping you get set for yours, we’ve picked the perfect capsule wardrobe for a range of adventures – whether it’s a weekend at a festival, a cool city escape or something sun-soaked and by the sea.
See what should be in your suitcase, below;
Coachella and Glastonbury may well be over, but there are still 100s of festivals happening around the world to hit up before Autumn sets in. Festivals are the perfect excuse to experiment with your style, so why not opt for a stylishly chaotic clash of prints, via playsuits and fun dresses?
Update the usual festival-goer uniform of distressed Levi’s, crop top and a kimono with silk shorts, soft culottes and a healthy dose of print on print. A tasselled backpack makes for the perfect accessory, but note: comfortable shoes are top priority – no heels here, ladies.
City Break Chic
For a holiday within a city, chic, cool and practical is definitely the way to go. Structured tops and relaxed trousers combine for perfect dressing during the day, with a sleek printed blazer thrown on for added effect. Night time calls for a more polished look though, so try a fitted pencil skirt with intricate accents like lace, which’ll add a sexy element to the look.
Heels are an absolute must in the city, but to ease their toll on your feet, opt for shoe boots with thicker heels. Simply add a patterned bag and muted jewellery, and you are ready to take on Paris, Milan and New York – all in one trip, if you’re lucky enough!
Be it Malta, Cancun or Phuket, it seems we just can’t get enough of exotic holidays by the sea. And what better way to enjoy a sandy escape than with an impressive collection of swimsuits and chic, flattering cover-ups? The theme of this particular look is ‘bohemian bombshell,’ which allows tie-dye to make a comeback for your off-tanning-duty look.
Your choice of bikini mostly depends on your body type and how comfortable you are with baring your midriff, but there’s an equally stylish option for everyone. Simply accessorise with confidence and a floppy straw hat and not only will you look the epitome of a relaxed holiday, but you’ll be protecting your neck and face from the sun, too. #Bliss.
