The amazing weather we’ve been having over the recent Bank Holiday has made us so excited to be off on our summer holiday but whilst we can’t wait to be on that plane, we all know that there’s the familiar feeling of laziness that comes with having to pack. WHAT do we take with us? We’re only going for a week or two but somehow the baggage allowance just never seems to be enough.
Well never fear! Here at Looker, we’ve compiled a list of 5 essential outfit ideas for you to take on holiday with you no matter your destination…
First things first, the outfit that you travel in is just as important as the ones in your case. Maybe even more so because you have to get the right balance of comfort and style, especially if you’re flying long haul- nobody wants to be flying for 10+ hours in a bodycon dress, right? Take a leaf out of Looker Olivia’s book and opt for a comfortable tracksuit accessorised with more trend led pieces such as a baseball cap and high-top trainers for an ‘off-duty celebrity’ look whilst you’re flying to the latest holiday hotspot.
If you’re anything like us, the first thing you’ll want to do when you finally arrive at your destination is either get in the pool or get to the beach. Either way you’ll be needing proper beach attire and chances are you spent the last few weeks leading up to your holiday shopping for the perfect swimsuit/bikini (which you’ll probably have found last minute while on your lunch break) so now is the perfect chance to show it off poolside!
Looker Juliet shows us exactly how to nail this look in her Boohoo swimsuit. Pair with sandals, a pair of shorts or skirt and a bold print coverup for a perfect pool-to-bar outfit.
If you’ve decided to steer clear of a lazy beach holiday and have instead opted to soak up the culture on a European city break, then you’ll be wanting as many fab outfits as possible to be included in your touristy Instagram pics. Again, this is the kind of holiday where style and comfort are key (heels are a no if we’re eating pizza on a cobbled Italian street). Looker Justine manages to pull off both in this Zara ensemble, ideal for exploring all the out of the way gems of a new city.
Truth be told, we all love a drink on holiday, right? Especially if you’ve booked a girl’s trip to a well known party destination. So, for the inevitable cocktail-fuelled girls night out that’s been anticipated since you booked the holiday, you’ll want to have an amazing outfit picked out that shows off your newly acquired tan (provided you haven’t burnt within hours of getting off the plane like we do). Look to The Curvy Roamer for on-trend holiday style in this Pretty Little Thing jumpsuit – bang on trend and still light enough on those warm summer night (no Grease jokes please…).
With summer comes wedding season and destination weddings are always an excuse to have a short break abroad. To make sure you’re looking photo-ready for your friend’s big day, why not try a floral maxi-dress á la WhatLauraLoves? Bold enough to be a statement piece but doesn’t take focus away from the bride.
