Most of us have our day-to-day look down to a tee but when it comes to translating that to your holiday wardrobe, it can all get a bit confusing. After all, how to blend the vibe of your destination with your own personal style?
A little stalking of some of the best-dressed girls on Instagram, however, has shown a myriad of brilliant new ways to style out our holidays, no matter what the destination…
Dree Hemingway (@dreelouisehemingway)
Who: Model and globetrotting party girl.
Destination: Waiheke, New Zealand, to stay on her brother’s houseboat.
The Look: Dree epitomises modern day, laidback surfer-girl attitude. Her look always seems effortlessly throw together- think a minimal bikini and denim shorts. But there’s always an offbeat addition, like a scarf nonchalantly tied around her wrist or looped through her waistband.
Harley Viera Newton (@harleyvnewton)
Who: DJ and fashion It girl who’s a regular fixture on the front row.
Destination: Flamingo Key, Florida
The Look: If you love classic, ladylike elegance then Newton’s all-American style will have definite appeal. She adores feminine dresses in lovely prints but will update them for now with a cool pair of sunglasses or a fresh twist on the basket bag.
Natalie Joos (@jxxsy)
Who: Blogger at talesofendearment.com and street style star
Destination: Glamping in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
The Look: Joos’ usual vibrant choices and penchant for eclectic vintage-inspired pieces worked perfectly with her colourful Mexican location. Her gorgeous fringed Athena Procopiou kimono and tiered maxi dress make for bold style statements which complement maximalist surroundings fabulously.
Lucy Williams (@lucywilliams02)
Who: Blogger at fashionmenow.com renowned for her beautiful lifestyle imagery and inspiration.
Destination: Travelling around Sri Lanka
The Look: Whether at home or abroad, Williams always nails that effortless 90s mood. A simple pair of sliders and a cotton shirt are her go-to for styling up sporty, sleek bikinis. A straw hat and tortoiseshell sunglasses make for chic finishing touches.
Hanneli Mustaparta (@Hannelim)
Who: Former model who is now a street style photographer and stylist, as well as a street style star in her own right.
Where: Søsterøyene Islands, Norway
Who: As a Norwegian native, Mustaparta already has Scandi style down pat, but her escape to the countryside of her homeland showed that the usually urban look works equally for vacation. Mustaparta’s postings show us a few Scandi shortcuts; wearing all-one-colour, be that light blue or white, keeps things suitably minimal while clean cut dresses make for pared-back cover-ups. A nod to escapism comes in the form of neutral tie-up sandals which are a low-maintenance, go-with-anything choice.
