Update your style for summer by introducing some of this season’s hottest trends into your wardrobe just in time for your summer holiday.
If you are fed up of wearing the same old styles and outfit combinations year in-year out, then why not liven up your wardrobe with some catwalk inspired key pieces that will give your usual holiday attire an instant make-over.

When those in the know are packing for their holiday, first on the list is always a playsuit. Not only are they super practical, but they are current and come in an array of designs that are inspired by the key summer trends. Whether you are looking for something for the evening or just to throw on at the beach, look out for playsuits that incorporate graphic prints, 60’s inspired designs or white edgy cuts to hold your own amongst the best dressed on your holiday resort. I have a vintage denim one which is my summer staple for lounging around in and a silk nautical print one from Stella McCartney for sipping cocktails in.
‘Roman’ maxi dress from BonPrix.co.uk ┬ú29.99
Next, always pack at least two maxi dresses like these from Bon Prix.com. These are fantastic for taking you from beach to bar with the simple addition of chunky jewellery, a headscarf or wedge sandal. They are also practical for space saving and for keeping you cool and breezy in that summer heat. I have my eye on this one in bold red with pretty waist ties to give it some shape.

And when you have finally got yourself a bit of a tan, you simply must let those pins get some fresh air. Look out for the perfect little summer dress that is elegant, stylish and shows off your best bits for that sunset walk on the beach or dancing with the locals. Again, graphic prints would look fab, but also look out for edgy florals, fluros, brilliant whites or candy stripes to really heat up your summer wardrobe.
Sure, you can still get away with the odd shorts and t-shirt combo this year, but why not add some summer style to your holiday wardrobe!
