We all look forward to going on holiday, but fashion for a break away can often be a little tricky to style.
Here are some tips about what to wear on holiday to succeed in looking fabulous from day to night, as well as some make-up ideas to keep you looking good no matter where you are spending your break away.
Daytime City Chic and Beach Wear Must-Haves
No matter where you are going on holiday, it is easy to stay looking elegant and on-trend by packing just a few key pieces. Whether you are planning a romantic weekend getaway or a longer adventure trip with family or friends, try to make sure all your items are in the same colour palette. This means you can pack a little lighter and leave more room for souvenirs, while making it quick and simple to style your look successfully when abroad.
Stick to summer bright hues or go for cool neutrals tones that can all easily be worn together to maximise your set of looks. Some staple items to consider are a plain shift dress which you can throw over a bikini with sandals and a pair of denim shorts which can be a great lightweight item to mix and match with a number of different other tops. The cropped tee has made a big comeback in recent years and it looks like this trend is here to stay for 2020. If you are feeling extra body confident, simply team your cropped tee with your choice of swimwear and denim shorts, or if you are looking to cover up a little more, make sure your shorts are high-waisted in order to give a more flattering look.
Another important factor to consider when looking good on holiday is skincare and make-up. Instead of wearing heavy foundation, opt instead for a fresh sweep of bronzer and stick to tinted moisturiser, not forgetting of course to always wear your SPF. Whether you are spending your holiday at the beach, exploring a new city or whizzing down the slopes, SPF is vital to success when it comes to your holiday look. Skin damage can occur from more than just sunburn, with over pollution from cities also a culprit for skin problems such as pigmentation and acne. You can still fall victim to sun exposure even in the snowiest and coldest of climates, so make sure to fully prep your skin and to always pack at least one good quality pair of UV protection sunglasses as part of your holiday wardrobe.
When exploring some place new, make sure your holiday bag is big enough to hold all your valuables but not too bulky so it weighs you down. By sticking to the same colour palette clothing wise, you can experiment with adding a clashing accessory for added style points, or if you prefer to keep your look chic and simple, pair your holiday bag with your daytime and nighttime shoes which can really help to pull any look together.
Sartorial Trends for After Sunset
Transforming your look for after the sun sets can still be easy and fun when away on holiday. Remember your daytime shift dress?
Swap the sandals for heels and a cropped jacket and you can upgrade your look from beach casual to nighttime glam. Adding jewellery to your simple daytime styles can also really help give them a boost of something extra, so don’t be afraid to tie your hair up and rock a pair of oversized hoops or a statement necklace for your own signature, glamourous look that can suit all ages. If you still want to wear your cropped tee into the evening too, try pairing it with some pencil trousers for a chic, fashionable nighttime vibe.

Another great place to look for those successfully pulling holiday looks together is social media. There are more accounts than ever before now dedicated to travel and holiday style, so why not check out Tash Oakley and her brand Monday Swimwear for some flattering daytime pieces, or follow Chiara Ferragni for chic holiday looks all year round. A successful nighttime look on holiday is a great time to add a pop of colour, especially against a tan, so do not be afraid to try out a bright new lipstick or gloss.
A dramatic eye look can also help elevate a simple evening style. A great idea for a successful holiday look is to opt for some make-up treatments before you travel. Eyelash extensions last for six to eight weeks, are completely waterproof and mean you can ditch the mascara and falsies while still looking put together and chic, perfect for a successful holiday look no matter the destination.
