Twenty six sleeps to Christmas!! The holiday season is nearly upon us. After working hard throughout the year, we are ready to spend a few days soaking up the sun at the beach, catching up with friends and family at backyard barbeques or packing the bags and traveling to exotic locales. Are our wardrobes keeping pace with our holiday plans? Do we have travel ready summer wear in 2016?
Travel Ready Summer wear Off – Shoulder Maxi Tropical Kaftan
Australia is famous for its beach culture worldwide. Beach culture goes hand in hand with beachwear. Beachwear should be flirty, floaty and feminine. Lightweight and breathable fabrics like cotton, chiffon and georgette are ideal for beachwear. Floral dresses, off – shoulder maxis and kaftans in tropical and graphic prints are on trend this season. Quick to dry and water repellant beachwear dresses can double up as cover ups over bathers or swimsuits.
Travel Ready Summer wear Lightweight and Creasefree Tops
If you are traveling, pack lightweight clothes. Blended georgette dresses and tops are sturdy, crease resistant and take the rigours of travel well. If you are heading off to Northern hemisphere you may want to carry tops and dresses that can be paired with cardis, worn over pullovers or under blazers.
Travel Ready Summer wear Maxi Dresses
Maxi dresses can double up as casual daywear and beachwear. They come in a wide variety of fabrics ranging from floral cottons to georgettes in vivid colours. Maxi dresses can be dressed up and down and are ideal for poolside bar be ques. Accessorised with hoop earrings, stacked bangles and espadrilles, maxi dresses make that easy transition from casual to party wear.
Carry a lightweight scarf. Scarves can be worn as sarongs over bathers, can be wrapped over off shoulder tops or tied around the neck for some added warmth.
During the holidays, your little ones can be quite a handful. Why not try something different this season? Replace the usual toys with eye catching kids’ apron sets as stocking fillers and your little will soon be engrossed, decorating the Christmas cake or roasting corn cobs at the bar be que, leaving you with some ‘me time’.
Beach Tote Bag
Last but not the least, if you are planning the great outdoors experience, pack your slip, slap, slop kit – a box of wet wipes, a spritzer, a lip balm fortified with UV protection, a sun block and moisturiser in a canvas tote bag. Carry a floppy hat. Complement your sexy summer clothes and beach wear with go go sandals and have a blast!!
