It looks the summer is finally creeping up on us, and for some lucky ones, holiday season has arrived! Whether you're off for your travels in the exotic Middle East, hopping on a train away for a short City break or you're just roadtrippin' around our humble England - and why wouldn't you, with Olympic and Jubilee fever running high?! - I've 'styled' three Looks that are essentials in any holiday wardrobe.

Look One is quite simple with a few bursts of coral tones. I'm certain that everyone has some form of grey marl in their wardrobe by now, especially when Topshop released their version more than a month ago. This River Island version is much more affordable, and is perfect for an easy-wearing outfit. Simply throw this on, add a scarf and coral pink sandals, and let your clothes do the talking: the beauty of dresses is that they don't need any primping and preening, no fussy tucking in or adjusting! The summer hols look wouldn't be complete without a pair of Sixties' sunglasses and a tote bag to hide tourist maps and snaffled hotel breakfast goodies!
I'm absolutely in love with Look Two, and I'd happily wear this at home! For those off on a City break, this Look lets you whip your holiday-ready legs out, as well as cover up while in the vicinity of locals. If you click over and look at this Monki knit in more detail, you'll see it has the loveliest, slubby texture! Add a necklace for some extra detail at the neckline, and let these shorts inject personality to your outfit. I've never seen anything cuter!

Look Three is an outfit to pop in your beach bag, because it can be worn over bikinis and beach gear. I adore these chiffon dipped hem skirts at the moment, and they are the perfect balance between daytime and dramatic. Wear with a bright bralet and mint nails, with flat sandals and a wide brim floppy hat for post-beach dinners and cocktails. The bright bralet is perfect with light or deep tans/skintones, and will look beautiful on camera for your holiday album.
Which is your favourite Look this week? And are you jetting off this summer? Don't forget to, er, bring me back a souvenir for helping out with your packing woes! ♥
