Top Styles for Your Summer Holiday

Top Styles for Your Summer Holiday

Spring is finally here and it means you can all start thinking about your upcoming summer holiday; or if you’ve not booked one, you better get it on the list of things to do! As the weather continues to improve, we can slowly start to put away our winter knitwear and oversized coats ready for the spring and summer styles we’ve been dying to wear.

Whether you’re staying in the UK and hoping for scoring weather this summer, or you’re jet-setting off around the globe, your trip won’t be complete without the best summer styles to go with it.

It’s the perfect time of year to update your clothing collection with some key summer trends, making sure you’re ahead of the curve when the sun finally breaks through the clouds. So, here in some inspiration for the top styles for your summer holiday.

Top Styles for Your Summer Holiday

Tropical print

Whether you’re going to an exotic destination or not, tropical print is a hugely popular style for the upcoming summer. Using colours like green, yellow and orange, tropical prints work well across playsuits and dresses which are great for wearing in the sunshine. Palm leaves, lemons and bright exotic flowers fit right in with a summery outfit, reminiscent of beach and island life.

To get yourself in the mood for your summer holiday, a tropical print playsuit or even co-ord set is a staple outfit for this season.

Bardot neckline

Bardot necklines are incredibly flattering and ideal for relaxing in the warm weather as they expose just enough skin. The great thing about the Bardot style is its versatility; it looks great on a blouse, dress or playsuit. Giving you an element of choice, wearing a Bardot neckline creates a bohemian look that is perfect for jetting off somewhere warm.

Extra detail like cut out sleeves, long sleeves or a cold shoulder take on the usual style can create a beautiful visual effect.


A prominent print that is becoming popular this season is stripes. Vertical stripes are naturally very flattering and they have a striking appearance that ensures you’ll stand out from the crowd. Easily worn, stripes suit every colour across the spectrum; go for monochrome for a classic look, or pick bold, bright shades that will reflect the weather.

From striped trousers, to jumpsuits and even mini dresses, stripes can be used across a variety of designs very easily. Perfect for adding a visual element to your clothing collection, stripes are a stand-out style that you can wear even after summer has been and gone.

Lace inserts

For a very feminine approach to summer style, lace inserts are a beautiful and subtle style. Whether it’s a lace trim along the hem or sleeves or lace panels inserted into the design, it works well for the summer season. Not only does it look pretty, it can keep you cool if you’re in need of a breeze!

Traditionally, lace looks best in white, but why not experiment with pastel shades like blue, yellow and pink? You could even take a bolder approach and try red lace for something different. Whether it’s a skater dress with lace sleeves, or an all-over lace blouse, it’s a typically sunny choice for the upcoming season.
