Each year, holidays provide us with something to look forward to; an escape to something new and exciting. What better reason to reinvent your wardrobe and infuse it with a new style? Here’s five holiday looks to inspire you this Summer, whatever your destination! Roadtrip Adventure For the adventurers and the discoverers, holiday clothes need to be simple, practical and interchangeable. A capsule wardrobe inside a very stylish leather hold-all is bound to keep you chic yet comfortable, whether you’re backpacking across Thailand or cruising across the states in a convertible.  When packing space is limited, a great way enhance your outfits is by accessorising. A bold piece of jewellery can transform the same garment from one day to the next. Also, scarves in varying colours and patterns add a splash of interest to change up the minimal options in your suitcase (and can provide much needed shade from the sun!). Essentials - Jersey Dress, Chambray and Denim, Leather Weekend Bag Paris Jaunt Paris is a haven for the romantics, the poets and the culture vultures. Perfect for an Autumn or Spring        getaway, the weather lends itself to long sleeved tops, tailored cigarette trousers and a light trench coat. It’s very much a walking city so the Audrey Hepburn-esque ballet pump with an ankle trouser will be a staple. For night time glamour, belted dresses in a cute spot or stripe capture the essence of Parisian style. A capsule wardrobe of navy blue, white and black with the occasional dash of red (in the form of jewellery or a scarf) will ensure that your ensembles always look put together and elegant without trying too hard. Essentials - Tailored Trousers, Stripes, Ballet Pumps Country Getaway A getaway in the countryside can provide much needed rest and relaxation; curling up in front of a fire with a good book, taking in beautiful views and enjoying good food and company. Textured jumpers layered with comfortable t-shirts are practical for outdoors. Luxurious fabrics such as rich velvets, thick knits and tweeds capture rural style which can be dressed down with a reliable pair of skinny jeans. Team with hard wearing boots or brogues, a chunky scarf and minimalistic jewellery for a down to earth heritage style. Essentials - Cable Knit, Riding Boots, Tailored jacket Moroccan Sun The feel of Morocco is sun-soaked elegance and luxury. A limited palette of block colours and a base of black items will provide a chic range of options that can be dressed up or down. Alternatively, mix the traditional with the modern for a new twist; a bright scarf print skirt with a black vest or a bright cultural print top with plain black wide leg trousers. The simple contrast will keep you looking fresh and on-trend from day to day. Maxi dresses are a great way to pair comfort with glamour. Wear with gladiator sandals for daytime and wedges for night time. Breezy cotton tops with broderie anglaise or lace detailing will keep you looking and feeling cool. Essentials - Maxi Dresses, Printed Headscarf, Gladiator Sandals New York City Chic It’s only fitting that in the city of style you have a wardrobe to match. Streamlined cuts and a muted palette will ensure that outfits seem effortless yet, artistically put together. Shirts and blouses tucked in to high-waisted pencil skirts, trousers or (for the brave), shorts create a contemporary ‘less-is-more’ silhouette. Chunky accessories will lift the simplistic items in your wardrobe and add a pop of colour and a new dimension to your basics. If you don’t want to pound the pavements in heels, an elegant flat pump in a neutral or nude will match all of your options, saving space in the suitcase for all the retail therapy you’ve indulged in! Essentials - Envelope Clutch, Neutral Blazer, High-waisted Skirt
