There is a common misconception that dressing for summer means sloppier fashion – but we don’t agree! Summer doesn’t have to equate to board shorts, singlets and thongs – in fact, your summer wardrobe can be your trendiest yet! Here’s how to pack for a summer holiday with style:
Choose Light Fabric
Fabric is the most important thing to consider when it comes to your summer wardrobe. Choosing cool and lightweight fabrics like linen and cotton will ensure that you look stylish without looking sweaty! A cotton chambray shirt with rolled-up sleeves is a great option if you want to look trendy yet effortlessly cool. Your summer clothes selection is also not complete without a white linen shirt, which you can wear at the beach or dress up with some chinos and loafers. If you don’t want to wear long sleeves, you can also opt for a polo shirt in a range of colors and patterns.
Neutral Coloured Pants
Let’s get one thing straight – board shorts are swimmers and shouldn’t be worn outside of the pool/beach! Instead of wearing board shorts, why not pack two pairs of neutrally-coloured (e.g. navy, taupe, etc.) shorts that you can mix and match with your shirts. A pair of clean and crispy white chinos also epitomises summer style – but chinos in beige or other neutral colours will also look great. Cuff the pants at the ankles for a relaxed vibe!
Why slip into a pair of thongs, when you can slip into a pair of boat shoes or loafers instead? A nice pair of boat shoes in brown or navy are comfortable, stylish and perfect for a well-groomed yet relaxed aesthetic. Make sure that you wear them with invisible socks to prevent smells or blisters!
The heat of summer provides limited opportunities for layering your style, so we recommend that you make the most of accessories instead. The best accessory for summer is a trendy pair of sunglasses. We recommend some classic Wayfarers or Aviators. You could also get yourself a stylish and practical watch and a leather belt or two. These items are sure to add a finishing touch to all of your outfits.
And there you have it! Follow these tips and you’ll have the trendiest summer holiday ever!
