Now’s the time to start thinking about the perfect outfits for your summer trip away.
The shops are stocking up with the latest trends already, so take a look and make a start revamping your holiday wardrobe.
Don’t wait until mid-July when the only things left are a mismatched tankini, a couple of scarves and none of the ladies clothes to really complement your journey’s end.
A cruise can be one of the best ways to visit new places and experience new cultures. It also presents many opportunities for an outfit.
For those formal black-tie events, opting for a floor length gown will ensure you look both chic and sophisticated.
If floor length isn’t your thing, you know you can’t go wrong with an LBD. Just remember to dress it up with simple and sparkly jewellery.
It’s not just about the time spent on the boat though. Often the most enjoyable and eye-opening experiences you’ll have are when you get the opportunity to visit the local places of interest when you dock.
If you’re heading to popular cruise destinations like the Mediterranean or the Caribbean, you’ll need an outfit that keeps you cool when the temperature hots up.
Go for light, flowing fabrics to keep cool. Remember the all important sunglasses, hat and a small, practical bag to keep all your valuables safe.
Stylish and luxury spots
We’d all love the chance to head to some of the most stylish, luxury destinations this summer.
So if you’re one of the lucky ones visiting spots like Puerto Banus, Sharm-el Sheikh or even the Maldives this year, it’s time to get on trend with the latest fashions.
For evenings out, consider stylish summer dresses in prints, florals or block colours. If it’s just a drink at a beachside bar, sandals are best – just slip them off and feel the sand between your toes. To dress it up for that special meal out, bring out the strappy shoes and some chunky bangles or sparkling silver.
In top destinations like this, daywear is just as important as the night. Your old bikini just won’t do. Once you’ve got your new swimwear sorted, it’s time to choose the ideal accessories to complete the look. A print tunic, top or a casual dress is the perfect accompaniment whether lounging by the pool or strolling along the beach as the sun goes down.
