HOTLIST: THE HOLIDAY ISSUE
This month, the hotlist was taken over by all things vacation! Get ready for your Madonna moment with our top 10 style things.
1. THE MAXI
A throw me on maxi dress (or two!) is every travelista’s suitcase essential. Look to prints and wear all day long.
2. THE VIP SUNNIES
When we say you absolutely need this season’s shades, we’re not talking colour. Instead, pack a big pair of statement sunnies to really pack a VIP punch around the pool. Note: You can even wear them indoors.
3. THE CAMI
Hey, spaghetti arms! ‘90s straps are back so stock up on cami dresses and little tops that will go with everything.
4. THE SWIM KIT
There’s no limit or rule here, you simply can’t pack too many bikinis. For an extra glam look that you could even wear to the bar with your shorts, go for a statement one piece with sexy cut outs.
5. THE JEWELS
Holidays are made for jewels. Go for big hoops and statement neck candy, stack up your bracelets and add colour. You’ll even need bling in your sunnies.
6. THE JUMPSUIT
A touch intimidating, but once you’ve found one you love – you’ll never be out of it, we promise! Start off with short playsuits if you’re not sure about full trouser boldness.
7. THE PERFECT SHORTS
Denim, printed and crochet – pack all three then rock around the pool AND the party peeps.
8.THE JELLY SHOE
We’re SO happy these are back on-trend that we’ve got all the colours of the rainbow up for grabs – you’re welcome.
9.THE ‘IT’ SANDAL
Unfortunately your jellies won’t quite go with your party dresses, but sparkling pair of embellished sandals will do you right all week long.
10.THE COVER UP
We heart kimonos – they’re just that little bit boho and just that little bit glamourous. PERF.
