Vaycay style guide with Pretty Little Thing

May 2, 2018


There’s nothing better than the thought of a great vaycay … escaping the cold weather & heading into summer. That’s exactly what I’m doing for my honeymoon – I’m saying ‘Bye Bye’ to the Southern Hemisphere winter and heading north for the sunshine. Three months in Asia & Europe and I can’t be more excited. This means that my wardrobe will be going through a bit of a roller coaster but I’m excited to put together affordable outfits to get me from the airport to the beach bar.

To get my fashion fix, I headed to PrettyLittleThing – a UK-based online fashion retailer with LOADS of affordable outfit ideas.

Whether you are in the northern hemisphere heading into summer or jetting away to a vacation,  I hope you enjoy this PrettyLittleThing vay-cay style guide.

Airport chic

Airport sports-luxe style is something often only achieved by celebrities. Because let’s be honest, who cares about looking great when you just came off a 13 hour flight? Well luckily for us, track suit pants and satin joggers have become a must-have fashion staple. Now offered in many stylish fabrics like satin and suede – it’s comfort meets style in the best kind of way.

Pool side cocktails

Once you arrive at your destination, the first thing you probably want to do it relax and fight off the jet lag. What a better way to do it than with a cocktail in hand, laying by the pool? I’m obsessed with the gorgeous PrettyLittleThing affordable bikinis. Top it off with a flowy, Red Jersey Polkadot skirt and a cute white tie-front crop. Finally, it feels like holidays!

Explore the new surrounds

Find the local hot spots, hand-made markets or tasty food destinations and do it with style and comfort. Nothing beats a good pair of ‘Mom’ denim shorts, comfy slides and a cute Lemon Handkerchief summer top for a pop of colour. This yellow tone is huge for European summer 2018, so keep an eye for it coming back around to the Southern Hemisphere later in the year.

Long lunch

After you’re done exploring, it’s time for a long lunch (possibly with a glass of wine or 3…?). When I think of long lunches on vay-cay I think light, wide-leg trousers. Perfect for the windy spots on a Mediterranean cliff-side bar or a gorgeous restaurant in the city. These stunning Pink Pleated Split Wide Leg Pants also feature a sexy side split to take you from lunchin’ to evening cocktails.

Dinner and drinks

When I think of dinner on holidays my mind goes straight to fresh, colourful dishes made with local produce. Compliment the eye-catching plates with a striking satin dress. I am obsessed with this Katalia Twist Dress, with a lime-green colour that would be flattering on many skin tones and perfect for the holidays. It’s light, loose-fitting and chic with the right amount of sexiness to bring out your playful summer self.

Dance the night away

Start your night off at a classy cocktail bar in this satin backless dress. This Red Satin Printed Dress absolutely screams sangrias in Barcelona and I wouldn’t want to have it any other way. It’s loose fitting and sexy with plenty of fun and daring vibes. I love how it sits flatteringly on the body, perfect for the summer nights.
