It almost that time of year when many of us jet off on holiday to warmer climates. The best thing about holiday is that not only do you have time to spend all day on the beach, but you also have the weather as well. Sun, sea and sand (and just a little sangria) is just what we all need after a year of working hard and enduring the British weather. Summer holidays are the time to kick back, relax and chill out and the ideal opportunity to stock up on your summer dresses.
When you go on your holiday, you may as well pack light, when the weather is warm you probably won’t need much in the way of clothes except a bikini, a few pairs of shorts and some summer dressesdresses that can take you from beach to bar effortlessly. Choose bright colours or fresh white which will look amazing with sun tanned skin.
Motel Rocks has a range of gorgeous summer dresses that would work equally well for daytime or evening or on holiday, they are small, light weight and easy to pack but pack a big punch style wise. We love this Indah chain flower dress, a really flattering style that looks great with a denim jacket.
A strapless dress is great for ensuring a strap mark free sun tan. They are great for slipping into after a day on the beach and a midi length is slightly more practical and less bulky to pack for day time wear. we love the colours in this Tessa multi coloured summer dress by Boohoo, it will definitely be in our suitcase this summer.
Some times when the weather is really hot, less is more when it comes to clothes. A microscopic mini dress is all you want for travelling from hotel to pool in style. It can also be teamed with a pair of killer heels for a hot night time look. A towelling dress is the ultimate in stylish pool or beach wear but we are not thinking about the sort of thing that your gran would wear. This pink towelling asymmetric summer dress by Juicy Couture is so perfect for the beach, easy to wash out and no need to iron, it looks really cute too!
For those that want to work that poolside glamour or boho beach girl, a maxi dress is a great option. It works well for daytime with flip flops or evening with some chunky wedges and covers up most of your body if you don’t want to burn in the sun. It is also loose fitting, cool and very feminine. This multi colour maxi dress by Goddiva would look amazing when worn with a wide brimmed sun hat, big shades and wedge sandals.
The nautical trend is huge this year and perfectly suited to beach holidays. This nautical stripe sun dress is ideal for slipping on after a dip in the sea or for sipping cocktails harbour-side after a hard day of sun bathing. Team with red flip flops and a big raffia beach bag for a hint of St Tropez style.
