Holiday Wardrobe Essentials

10 Holiday Wardrobe Essentials

April 30, 2015

If you have a holiday booked for this summer, you most likely have already been holiday shopping, or is that just me? Take a peek at some things I’ve been buying in my latest shopping haul video. I definitely get distracted by all the pretty colours and pretty dresses, but I probably don’t think ‘what do I really need?’. So if you are currently holiday shopping, I have put together ten pieces that you should definitely have in your holiday wardrobe.

These are great basic pieces that can help you build up your holiday attire and will make sure you stay stylish. All these are from the high-street, as who really wants to spend a fortune on clothes for a vacation!?

Holiday Wardrobe Essentials

1. Statement Necklace

A statement necklace is always a good investment and the case is no different when it comes to holiday clothing. Coin necklaces were all the rage at Coachella and this statement chunky coin necklace from Marks & Spencer £22.50 ticks all the boxes. Perfect for jazzing up a dress in the evenings or a plain white cami top for day.

2. Beach Bag

Of course if you are sunbathing by the pool or taking a day trip to the beach, you need a bag that is big enough for all your essentials. This ‘Beach Please’ beach bag from New Look £15.99 has the perfect slogan and is big enough for everything, its also easy to fold to fit in your suitcase.

3. Reversible Bikini

Your bikini doesn’t have to be boring on holiday, choose a bright colour like this one from Pull & Bear and the best part about it, its reversible! No-one will ever know.

4. White Cami

You can’t beat a plain white cami top for holiday. This Boohoo cami is just £8 and will really last you the time of your holiday. Wear with cut-off denims, shorts or maybe a maxi skirt. The fabric is thick enough to cover up but wearable enough for the heat.

5. Sandals

Make sure you have a good pair of flat sandals with you. I always make the mistake of buying new ones and then not having wore them, result in a holiday full of blisters and sore feet. This ASOS pair are made from real leather and the tan colour will go with everything. At £16 they are a snip!

6. Sunglasses

A holiday essential of course. Why spend a fortune on a pair to have them break and ruin your holiday? Pick up a pair of on-trend mirrored aviators from George for just £3.50.

7. Denim Shorts

When pairing items, denim shorts go with pretty much everything. Great for exploring in and ideal to get the legs out and catch some rays. Forever 21 have a great pair of cut-off ripped denim shorts £14 that are ideal for a capsule piece.

8. Light Jacket

Surely you are going on holiday, you won’t need a jacket? Well with this M&S Bomber Jacket £35 you might, it’s lightweight and soft with Tencel® to help keep your body cool. Perfect for those days the sun just didn’t want to shine.

9. Casual Dress

A dress like this one from Forever 21 is an ideal piece to take on holiday. It’s light fabric and detailing makes it suitable for day or evening, so dress down with flat sandals or dress up with heels and a clutch. It just works and the light colour is perfect for hot climates.

10. Maxi Skirt

A maxi skirt is the perfect way to cover up. Whether you are exploring a city ( a lot of places may require you to wear something longer to cover up) or maybe for the evening this skirt would work well from Autograph at M&S £45. I love the apricot colour, it goes perfectly with a white cami or light blouse, team with the statement necklace and flat sandals and you are set.
