Why not be a jet setter and a trend setter? We know how exciting it is to plan your holiday outfits and there’s always a temptation to go overboard and pack everything. But whether you’re heading to the beach, going in a city trip or the adventure of a lifetime we have got you covered. Check out the guide below on how to accessorise for your holiday.
Accessorising for: The airport
Set the tone for your holiday before you even leave the airport. The first thing to decide on, is the perfect bag to set your outfit apart. The size will depend on how long you plan to be travelling for, but you can opt for a beautiful weekend bag or a stylish casual handbag. Choose a neutral colour that will be easily matched to a variety of outfits on your trip.
Move over leggings or sweatshirts, the ultimate in casual and cool is a casual jumpsuit. Not only will you be incredibly comfortable you will also look effortlessly classy. Pair this with a set of plain hoops or studs, a dainty bracelet and simple necklace.
Wear your hair however you like it but remember to bring along some stretchy hair bands so whenever you want, you can throw your hair up in a messy bun seamlessly.
Accessorising for: A sunny beach break
There’s nothing greater than a sunny beach holiday. This is the perfect excuse to fill your wardrobe with clothes you could never get away with wearing at home.
Perhaps the most important accessory you need to bring with you is a high SPF sun cream and facial moisturiser. Believe me, your skin will thank you in years to come. To help protect your skin from the sun’s damaging rays also invest in a floppy straw beach hat and a light scarf, sarong or kaftan.
With guaranteed hot weather, this is the perfect chance to wear your favourite summer dress and linen trousers. Pick light colours to make your tan pop and accessorise your look with some stylish shades.
There are so many accessories to choose from on a beach holiday. Match your favourite bikini with a colourful kaftan and embellished sandals are always a key look. For your bag, think straw or a cute tote, which will be perfect for carrying your things to the beach. Count your towel as an accessory too! Express yourself with cute prints and florals to make sure you save your spot on the beach in style.
Accessorising for: A weekend city break
When accessorising for a city break it’s important to cater for busy days exploring and soaking up the local culture. Keep it cool and casual, opting for trainers or sandals if the weather is a little warmer. Just make sure that whatever you have on your feet is comfy and won’t rub your feet while you are walking, as there’s nothing else that could ruin exploring more.
Keep outfits stylish and simple, which you can then dress up with your accessories. Opt for trendy layered jewellery and bright, vivid colours or florals to match neutral summer clothes.
If you are visiting during the colder months a trench coat is always a winner, not only will it keep you warm, but also dry. Accessorize with a floral or coloured scarf to complete the look and keep yourself warm. Also remember to bring an umbrella in your bag, you never know when you might need it!
Accessorising for: An Adventure holiday
For adventure holidays opt for a no fuss and practical style, but this doesn’t mean you have to leave the accessories at home. Bring a sensible set of hiking boots or trainers, or set your ski suit apart with a set of goggles in a vivid colour.
You know you’re going to be walking a lot, so maybe skip the summer dress and opt for a comfy jumpsuit or trousers and top combination. Prepare for every eventuality. Backpacks make the ideal accessory and there are so many fashionable colours and variations now available. This allows you to create effortless but practical style.
Accessorising for: The dream cruise
If you are heading off on the cruise of your dreams, you will most likely be stopping off at a number of locations along the way. This is important to consider when choosing what to wear and accessories as there could be differences in temperature and terrain. You may want to incorporate some of the accessory tips we covered in beach and city break and even adventure holidays as who knows where your cruise may take you.
However, when you’re aboard a good handbag will be your staple. Choose from a stylish tote, backpack or even shoulder bag. Remember to make sure it is big enough to carry all of your essentials, so that you’ll always have them and enough room for a bottle of water and sun cream.
Embrace accessories that are nautically themed, think rope, knots, chains and of course blue and white stripes! There are many themes to choose from and you will be spoilt for choice. Pair with classic sunglasses, subtle jewellery and you’re good to go, anchors away!
