Packing your bags and readying yourself for your next getaway? Or maybe you’re just dreaming up a few fresh looks for a long planned trip on the horizon? You’re going to need a little outfit inspiration to get you prepared. Resort vacations are the perfect time to get playful with your style and invest in a few new pieces to set you up for the trip of your dreams. Keep reading for some great styling ideas that’ll have you looking and feeling your best wherever it is that you’re headed for your next vacay…

The easy off the shoulder dress

An off the shoulder, longer length maxi dress will give you that rested, breezy golden goddess feel in a matter of seconds. Look for yours in a warm, toasty statement tone like hot pink or rusty orange to tie in with the ethereal, summertime siren vibe of this piece. You can easily make this one work for day or night. For daytime, reach for a woven floppy sun hat, oversized sunglasses and tie up sandals. To make it work for the evening, swap out your sandals for platforms or strap heels, grab a clutch bag, pile your hair up high and add some statement earrings. Smart packing means putting pieces to use more than once, and this one is a great way to do it.

A white mini 

For when the days are balmy and you want something super simple to slip into. A classic mini dress is the epitome of summer style, it looks beautiful on absolutely everyone and it’s the perfect canvas for some creative dressing if you feel so inclined! Add strings of colourful beaded jewellery, statement shoes or an oversized basket bag and sunnies for a touch of French girl chic. This is a quick one to throw on over your bikini, too. 

Chic co-ords 

A co-ord outfit is a great choice because you’re getting a tonne of styling options out of one investment! Wear together for a cohesively chic, tied together look that’s perfect for both day and night styling. Or, swap out your crop top for an oversized button up, bodysuit or even a knit for any unexpected chilly moments. Your pants, skirt or shorts can be substituted for a wardrobe staple like your favourite pair of jeans, too. Again, this is a seriously smart way to pack and will likely free up some space in your suitcase, which is always a huge help. 

The statement evening dress 

Every woman needs that one special, statement dress to pull out of her case and feel incredible in. Whether you’re planning on chilling out the whole time or you’ve got a glamorous night pencilled into your vacation schedule, you’re going to thank yourself for preparing an evening look. Hunt for a pretty printed maxi dress, a soft pink midi piece or a daring cut out style for full impact that’s sure to make an impression. 

Classic flowing dress pants 

 Dress pants might not be the first item your mind jumps to when you think of relaxing, but the right pair of wide leg white pants is going to come in so handy, and look incredible doing it too. Pair with cropped tops, a simple white tee or a men’s style striped button up for a timeless, elegant outfit that you can wear anywhere.
