Maybe it’s because the sun puts us in a more positive mindset, but we always prefer experimenting with our style during the summer months. If there’s a particular print, colour combo or trend that’s not very you but you want to test it out regardless, doing so on holiday is the ideal time as chances are, you’ll never see any of the locals or fellow tourists again! Here are some of the outfits spotted on Looker users that we’ll be trailing on our hols.
We love the timeless look of a midi dress but for an SS18 twist, do like thejazzedit and opt for a heavily embroidered number with subtle flared sleeves. We’d usually polish off the look with a pair of strappy sandals but with chunky trainers still all the rage thanks to Balenciaga, Gucci and Louis Vuitton sending them down their runways, we’ll follow their (and Jazz’s!) lead by embracing the trend.
Whenever we want to nail that cool-girl Kate Moss-esque vibe, we rely on our trusty leopard print pieces. So, it’s sometimes easy to forget that other animal prints do actually exist! Zebra in particular has been spotted in some of our favourite high-street stores. A couple of seasons ago, we were all about layering slip dresses over white tee’s for a 90’s throwback so for our next vacay, we’ll be taking a leaf out of Sarah’s book by trailing two trends at once: a zebra print slip layered over a colour pop tee.
Summer is the perfect time of year to inject pops of vibrant hues into your wardrobe, so why stop at one or two colours when you could follow Stephanie’s lead by embracing each end of the colour spectrum? Flaunt your tan with electric shades of blue, red and emerald whilst keeping cool in a loose, flowy fabric.
When we’re feeling particularly bold, clashing some of our favourite shades instantly freshens up our everyday style (think navy with black or pink with red) but a colour clash we’re yet to try is red and orange – as spotted on Looker Tasmine. It’s such an effortlessly cool look to wear while exploring a new city and the faded orange hue, fringed bag and round sunnies add a subtle 70’s feel.
When packing dresses, we usually opt for floaty maxi dresses to combat the heat during the day and mini dresses for nighttime to show off our new tan – a high-low dress barely crosses our mind. However, after seeing Nicole’s ruffled number, we’ll definitely be giving one pride of place in our suitcase to easily transition from beach to bar (and to fulfil one of our goals of looking like the dancing emoji). If you’re heading to Spain, claim it’s flamenco inspired!
