Vacation Ready Outfits That’ll Get You in the Festive Spirit

Summer is so close you can almost taste it! The sun is warmer, our days are getting longer, and the general energy fuelled atmosphere is buzzing as we begin to feel a little bit more sunkissed and relaxed.

This is, without a doubt, my favourite time of year as we all start to unwind from what was another busy year. Although our holiday plans may still look a little bit different this year, it doesn’t mean you can forget to sit back with a book, a glass of champagne or on a beach chair at some point whether this be on an inner city staycation or pool side in your own backyard.

But let’s be honest, they don’t call it the ‘silly season for nothing. Sometimes the effort of getting ready to go away or closing the year off in a stress-free manner is just all too much, and our style can take a back seat. To make things a little easier, I’m going to share with you how to keep your vacation outfits looking chic, simple and festive with ease.

Your motto this season – keep it easy, breezy and colourful. Stick to this, and you can do no wrong!

Knit pieces and sets are a great option to throw on and style up or down this season. Comfortable to wear, easy to add into your suitcase with no need to iron, and flattering on so many shapes and sizes. Make sure to invest in a lightweight jumper to keep it cool on those warm days, and use the option to throw a denim jacket over your shoulders on those balmy nights.

If you want something that can take you straight from the pool or beach to the lobby bar, don’t forget you can style with your swimmers. Swimmers act as a fantastic layering piece, at the moment, there are so many amazing one-piece suits that can be worn as bodysuits under your bottoms or open knit dresses. This is a great way to play with prints, cut-outs, and strappy styles perfect for this summer weather. Keep your bases neutral and easy to wear, not too tight, and you are good to go!

These outfits are perfect to pair with your beach slides, a summer heel on your way to a sunset cocktail or with a pair of sneakers on boxing day in the backyard. Make sure to keep accessories light and textural. Consider raffia or crochet bags and silk scarves or wide-brim hats.

Chunky bracelets, rings and earrings are also great for the festive season to add pops of colour and unique style to any look.

These simple styling tips will ensure you are ready for your summer vacay, no matter where you may be heading in Australia.
