Waiting around for sunny, warm weather can make the colder months torturous - especially for the self-confessed fashion addicts. With new sandals waiting to be walked in, new hats waiting to make shade and gorgeous summer outfits waiting to show off your curves, it would almost be a crime not to go on a little Spring holiday, wouldn’t it?
So if you’ve given into the sunny temptation and you’re heading off to brighter skies, we’ve got the list of must-haves for your holiday in the sun.
MAXImise Your Look
Being on holiday is the perfect time to wear bold fashion pieces and experiment with your style - and maxi dresses definitely fall into the bold category. But once the sun has kissed your skin and you’ve got your big shades on, a colourful or simple maxi dress will help create that chic holiday look without having to reveal too much of your body.
Treat Your Feet
Footwear is key for getting your holiday look perfect from head to toe. This season it's all about heeled sandals in tan - but don't forget to pack a pair of flip flops for trips to the beach or pool!
For the cooler evenings where you’re kicking back with a couple of drinks on the patio, make sure you pack a hoodie in your favourite colour for snuggling in to.
Swimming In Confidence
Swimwear is the most revealing outfit that anyone wears in public, so choosing your bikini or swimsuit is important. If you love the way you look and want that even tan all over, then go ahead and rock a triangle or bandeau bikini. And if you’re not feeling 100% about bearing your body to the world, not to worry. There are plenty of fashionable one-pieces and fun trikinis out there that will keep you looking fashionable.
In between dips in the pool, sweaty foreheads and limited packing space, bringing your full beauty routine abroad can be difficult. So strip back your look and limit your make-up to the essentials: a brilliant waterproof mascara, concealer for any misfortunes and a bit of blusher or bronzer to keep you shining - just until the sun does its magic on your cheeks. And if you’re feeling slightly under-glam without your eyebrows shaded in and your eyes lined, then an oversized pair of sunglasses will keep your feeling confident.
So In Vogue
And for that final touch to make sure you're the chicest lady under the sun, make sure you have a wide-rimmed hat to complete your holiday look. Make sure you keep a polaroid camera in your bag at all times for capturing the holiday moments, and of course, always have the latest issue of Vogue with you for those lazy poolside afternoons.
So what are you waiting for? Get packing!
