You’ve been dreaming about them for months and they’re finally here! Here are 10 summer musts to pack a stylish suitcase!
1. The maxi effect
Maxi dresses are a key piece of your vaca wardrobe! Versatile, trendy and supremely comfortable, they can just as easily be worn poolside as out on the town! Simply switch up your shoes and accessories to create completely different looks. What’s more, they take up no room at all in a suitcase—simply roll them up!
2. We love jumpsuits!
Just like maxi dresses, jumpsuits can be dressed up or down in a flash. These ultra-trendy pieces are self-sufficient fashion statements. Slip one on and you’re all set. No need for frills! Are you in?
3. Short and sweet!
There’s nothing like a stylish pair of shorts! To save space in your suitcase, opt for stylish models that will take you from a day at the museum to dinner at a restaurant! Silk or linen, pleated or high-waisted, knotted or paired with a skinny belt, shorts are a definite summer favourite!
4. The finishing touch
Not only can scarves dress up any look, they also keep you warm during those cool summer nights or when travelling on a plane.
5. The right bag
Choose a beach bag made of lightweight fabric that easily fits into the bottom of your suitcase. Make sure it’s big enough to carry all your essentials: beach towel, sunscreen, reading material, etc. Another interesting option is a wicker basket bag. It doesn’t fit as easily in your suitcase, but its great versatility will take you from morning to night.
6. The perfect pair of shoes
Comfy thongs during the day and more stylish sandals at night. That’s all you need when you’re on vacation! Here’s a tip: avoid sky-high heels and opt for glamorous flat sandals with gold or pearl accents.
7. Mix and match
Bathing suits are definitely an important part of your vacation wardrobe. To get the most out of a few items, choose three tops and three bottoms that can be mixed and matched to make nine different looks! Mismatched bikinis are a huge, not to mention practical, trend!
8. Glitz it up!
Summer, especially the summer holidays, is the perfect time to wear costume jewellery that will glitz up your look! Long, brightly coloured necklaces, fruit-shaped earrings, XXL rings, mismatched bangles … Pack a few of your favourite pieces in a pouch and slip it into your suitcase!
9. All eyes on you!
During the summer, sunglasses are an accessory that you can’t do without. Not only do they protect your eyes from harmful UV rays, they have also become bona fide fashion accessories! Summer 2018 trends include cat-eye and round frames, aviators, rose gold frames, and coloured or mirrored lenses.
10. The pareo!
Perfect for lounging at the beach or around the pool, the pareo is a definite summer must. It adds elegance and colour to any bathing suit while stylishly keeping under wraps what you don’t want to show off … Ask an in-store consultant or search online to find an endless number of ways to sport a pareo!
