WANT to look good on your summer holiday? Step out in style with our guide to the perfect getaway wardrobe.
WOMEN splash more cash on their vacation wardrobe than the trip itself, according to recent research. While the average woman spends £500 on their holiday, the new contents of their catwalk-hot luggage comes to around £700, a Clothes Show London survey reveals.
"Looking good on holiday is just as, if not more, important to some women as actually getting away," says Maryam Hamizadeh of Clothes Show London.
Unless your name is Victoria Beckham and you’re regularly chased through airports by paparazzi, there’s no need to go overboard with your flight fashion
Comfort and layering are key to a non-turbulent flight on the style front. Think lightweight jerseys and flat shoes that won’t start to pinch the moment your feet swell.
If you’re not a fan of jogging bottoms, this season’s new trouser silhouette, the harem pant, is a glamorous alternative.
Be suitcase savvy; Layering is essential for a capsule holiday wardrobe that’s interchangeable and versatile.
Choose lightweight fabrics in colours that will work effortlessly together such as khaki, grey and natural shades, and bring individuality to your look with bright accessories and bold statement jewellery.
It’s not just your clothes that should look good, invest in stylish luggage too. Designers Jasper Conran and Orla Kiely both have affordable ranges for Tripp that will give your luggage some jet-setting credibility.
