Best Looks for Summer 2018 Holidays

Summer 2018 is finally here, and that means it’s time to start packing for your hot and balmy holidays. Packing the right holiday essentials in your suitcase is vital to ensuring you can look incredible on each and every day of your break. From versatile maxi dresses you can dress up or down to lightweight wigs that will hold their shape whatever the weather, here’s our list of the essential pieces every woman should be packing in her suitcase this summer:

A Maxi Dress

There is nothing better for hot summer days than a maxi dress. Whether you’re looking for something to wear as you lounge by the pool or sightsee in the closest city, the maxi dress can take you anywhere. Pick a lightweight floral version that you can wear with wedges for an evening meal or with trainers for exploring the local markets and hot spots. You could even add a light knit sweater or cardigan over the top of the dress, turning it into a skirt for your flight journey home. If you only buy one new piece to take on holiday with you this year then a maxi dress is a perfect choice.

A Kimono Jacket

A lightweight kimono jacket is another versatile piece that you can wear with almost anything. This will make an ideal poolside cover-up to protect your skin from the heat of the midday sun, but it will also keep you warm on cooler evenings by the beach. Pair with denim cut-offs and a simple tank top for busy days out, or over a fitted jersey dress to elevate it and dress it up for a romantic evening meal. When packing a capsule wardrobe it’s important to think about how many different ways you will wear each piece on one trip, and the kimono jacket definitely earns its keep as a holiday essential.

A Lightweight Wig

If you wear a wig, then its important to think about what kind will be best to pack in your suitcase and take on holiday. Synthetic wigs tend to travel much better than human hair versions, as they are less likely to knot and tangle. They are also generally more lightweight and will keep you cooler in the sun. When packing a wig for your holiday you may wish to think about choosing a slightly shorter model than normal, as this will be easier for you to style and wear whilst you’re away.

Classic Shades

Is there anything that makes you look cooler and more stylish than a pair of designer shades? Sunglasses are a summer holiday essential, and as you will be wearing them everyday it’s important to pick a pair that fits you well and suits the shape of your face. Whilst designer sunglasses may be expensive, if you pick a timeless and classic style (such as a pair of Ray ban Wayfarers) then they’ll be worth the investment year after year.

Tassel Earrings

If you don’t already own a pair of tassel earrings, then you really should think about investing in a pair. Tassel earrings are this season’s hottest jewelry trends and they are ideal for completing all of your holiday looks. A pair would look great teamed with a simple white T-shirt and shorts and would add an extra touch of glamour to all of your evening looks. Choose a multicoloured pair that will compliment all of the other pieces you pack in your holiday capsule wardrobe, and you can use them to complete each outfit, tying every look together.

A Straw Bag

No one wants to carry their towel to the beach rolled up under their arm, and this season’s hottest beach bag style is the oversized straw bag. Big enough to hold all your beach and pool essentials, a straw bag will also be strong and sturdy enough to double up as a shopper when you head to the local market. Whether you’re choosing to stock up on fruit and veg or luxury leather shoes, this is the perfect bag to tote it all! Look for a bag with rounded handles to inject some new season style into this versatile and essential piece.
Statement Swimwear

Finally, where would you be without a statement making swimsuit or bikini? After all, you’re on holiday! It’s likely that you will be spending most of your time in your swimwear on the beach or by the pool. It doesn’t matter what you choose to inject your swimwear with a little extra pizzazz: frills, ruffles or even a bold pattern are all great choices. This is your time to shine, so pick swimwear that really reflects your personality.
