Whether you’re checking in for a cultural tour of Europe or checking out by the beach there are some things you just won’t want to leave behind for that perfect summer look in 2017. From floaty maxis to neon accessories if you haven’t already thought about your summer wardrobe what are you waiting for? Here are some of the best ideas for building your essential summer capsule wardrobe.
Night and Day
Unless you have a private jet or a huge car and plenty of strong men to carry your stuff then you are going to have to pack smart this summer vacation. The perfect way of packing in the looks without breaking your suitcase is to choose items that can go from day to night and everything in between. The more flexible your clothes can be the more wear and stare you will get from them. A must have is a pair of sequinned shorts that can take you from sunlounger to bar in a jiffy. Worn over a bikini during the day, then teamed with a slinky top and heels to light up your nightlife. The 70s style maxi dress is another team trooper perfect for lazy summer days as well as delicately feminine evenings by the pool. Flexibility even extends to your budget this summer with lots of fashion sites like dontpayfull.com offering discount opportunities for those wanting to look good for less.
Stay Safe in the Sun
The turbo tan look is just not healthy or on trend so wherever you venture this vacation being safe in the sun is a must. Luckily there are many fashion forward options for staying cool all day long. Try a straw trilby for that effortlessly cool look that will also keep the sun at bay for a perfectly chilled out vacation. If you want to add a splash of color and personality to your capsule wardrobe you could try sporting some kooky sunglasses that will also keep those peepers protected so that you’re the only one that dazzles.
It’s a Wrap
Combining both sun safety and the idea of flexible clothing is the summer mainstay wrap dress or shirt. The wrap has had a 70s style upgrade for 2017 with everything on offer from tie-dyed to tassles. Whilst the wrap dress is still popular in this season’s must have floral prints, why not try an oversized wrap shirt to help cover-up during the day which can then be worn over boyfriend jeans for a cute evening look.
Sandals never drop out of fashion and 2017 is all about the natural sandal with cork and twill all finding favor in this season’s designs. Avoid packing too many shoes with a pair that will last from day to night. Go for eye-catching neon prints and pretty detailing that compliments both swim and evening wear. Make sure nails are polished for the perfect finish head to toe.
