Summer spells lazy-yet-luxe holidays! Are you heading to your friend’s pre-wedding bash to the charming Abu Dhabi or planning a South of France getaway or thinking of soaking in the beauty of Capri islands? All of these travels entail comfort, chic and practicality. Needless to say that it’s crucial to pack your travel essentials – your trusty vanity case, swimsuit, a crochet and lace jumpsuit or a mini and of course a resort gown for the night of unapologetic theatricality.
Saint Tropez siren
No matter what one usually ends up encountering the pool-side scenario during summer vacay. Most weddings happen at pool resorts or one always ends up hitting the beach (thank God for that), no matter what! If you’re hitting Saint Tropez, you need to pack a lot of whites. The sun-kissed, tanned skin stands out beautifully against the summery eyelet dresses and crochet jumpsuits. Also, when you’re sunning in South of France, you shouldn’t shy away from embracing colours – from dip-dyed shades of sky blue and sea green to tribal prints. Throw on some animalistic beads, a pair of oversized sunnies and tanned strappy wedges and you’re the quintessential Saint Tropez siren!
Abu Dhabi soignee
If you’re going to Abu Dhabi for your friend’s bachelorette or mehendi, it’s crucial to squeeze in some mirror work and beaded kurtis and statement kaftans. A floaty kaftan with uncut jewellery worn over an itsy-bitsy bikini will make you own the poolside. The likes of Tory Burch have taken the holiday clothing to a new level with cheery botanical prints. All you need is oodles of confidence, fresh dewey make-up and a wide-brimmed fedora and you’re all set.
The scenic Amalfi is all about flashing your tan, letting your inner glamazon do all the talking as you embark on the Path of Gods, go island hopping around Anacapri or exploring the visually sumptuous Positano on a ferry. The Italian riviera is all about embracing luscious prints, white blazers (minus the inner lining), crop tops (to flash your taut midriff) and flared pants. You can’t go wrong with a head-to-toe white look accented with rose gold jewellery and jewel-toned accessories.
This summer is all about indulging in a cocktail of lace, crochet, beads and prints. Make it special and timelessly Insta worthy by making each look inimitably your own.
