SS17: BY THE POOL

April 29, 2017

This is the second of my Spring Summer holiday look book’s, shot in Tenerife. England is definitely letting us down weather wise (shock!), so there’s only one thing for it … book a holiday and take these outfits with you to ensure you are looking chic whilst relaxing by the pool. As you girls know, a truly efficient holiday wardrobe must include pieces that are versatile and capable of being worn more than once. To help you avoid a complete meltdown, and speed up the dreaded packing process, I have provided some vacay inspo! My top tips are: Take a maximum of 4 pairs of sandals/sliders (2 in black, 1 in nude and 1 in white), pack a bikini cover-up, always go for comfortable and be prepared for some much needed R&R.

My personal favourite spring trend, is the two-piece set. They are unbelievably versatile, you can either wear them as the full set or separate your two-piece and get extra wardrobe mileage out of them. The Bershka two-piece and New Look sliders which I have styled in this shoot are very easy to wear, it takes about 0.3 seconds to put this outfit on (well, maybe not, but it’s completely fuss free) and extremely comfortable. The elasticated bardot top and shorts mean there are no harsh seams which dig into the skin and the frill detailing and fresh mid-wash blue colour of this set makes it perfect for Summer.

I have named it in my top tips, and I definitely recommend taking a cover-up with you on holiday. Bikini cover-ups are perfect to slip on when you walk to the pool/beach and for your poolside selfie when your bikini has got a tad too tight by the end of your vacay. This rose gold tunic from Missguided is to die for, featuring a longline styling and thigh high splits. The metallic hues glow so beautifully in the sun! Rose gold is best when paired with a black bikini, if you want to wear a white bikini I would style with either a silver or sheer cover up.

As I’m sure many of you will have worked out by now, Zara is one of my favourite retailers for modern tailored styles. This sky blue dress with a cinched waist and flare detailed sleeves is ideal for summer evenings. Mini bags were a massive trend in the Spring of 2016, and it has carried over into this year’s season. Although you will have to halve the amount you carry around with you, your back and shoulders will thank you and  micro-bags are just too cute to ignore. Whether you opt for this Stradivarius tote, a clutch, satchel or backpack, make it mini and it’ll be your perfect holiday accessory.
