Summer is that high time of year for global travel, whether it be a trip just down to the coast or a full blown holiday to hot sandy beaches and scorching weather. But what to wear while travelling in summer season? what outfits are perfect and comfortable ?What accessories should you bring? And what is the ideal footwear? This article covers all the basics for fantastic travelling summer trends.
This season’s fashions include striking stripes, bold and bright floral and ethnic prints. Striped accessories and shoes are a great addition to a plain colourful dress. A colourful striped dress will contrast beautifully with summer tanned skin. Be careful though as stripes have the power to change the shape of a silhouette and can have drastic consequences if not used correctly.
Floral patterns are a favourite every year but this season sees floral and yellow shades going hand in hand. Go for flowing dresses that are off the shoulder or strappy and are thigh to calf length. Dresses fitted at the waist are great for creating shape and can be accentuated with a contrasting belt. Try to keep floral patterns to a minimum so just a simple pattern is ample. Too much can kill the look you are trying to achieve.
This summer sees a huge rise is ethnic inspired fabrics and accessories. Just like the floral print, do not overdo it with this style. If your dress is printed then keep shoes and accessories plain and bold and vice versa.
Accessories for Travel
With every outfit make sure all jewellery, hats, sunglasses and bags are matching and in keeping with your style. Chunky beaded necklaces are great for adding shape and structure to your neckline especially with off the shoulder dresses. Simple bracelets and bright earrings will add colour to all areas of the body. Make sure bags are big enough to carry all your travel essentials in but small enough not to be a burden. Sunglasses are an essential for every woman during summer. Not only are they practical but they are now available in such vast styles that choosing a pair to match your summer travelling outfit is a breeze and the fact that sunglasses are quite cheap, you can have a different pair for each outfit if need be.
Footwear for Travelling
Remember that on your travels you will nearly always be on your feet! During flights, at airports, exploring towns, sights and beaches, out enjoying the nightlife, your feet go through it all. While it is never a bad thing to pack your beloved stiletto peep toes, packing and travelling in some adorable flats such as loafers, sneakers, oxfords or boat shoes will save your life. Shoes of these styles are great for practicality and can also finish of your outfit beautifully.
