Sunnier times are on their way, and there’s definitely a slew of new summer fashion trends to go along with it. I'm currently counting down the days until I head off to Austria to celebrate Martyn's 40th birthday in Zell am See and I've been picking up some new bits and bobs to wear whilst we are there. Without really thinking about it most of my picks are pretty on trend and my suitcase is filling up with some stylish items.
During the house move I've managed to lose my swimming costume, it's probably in a box in the attic somewhere but I've had to buy a new one. It's definitely an exciting year as a lot of new swimwear-only brands popped up this year. In the end, I opted for a neon pink/coral swimsuit from Curvy Kate which incorporates both the neon and crochet beach trends that feature in all the festival and beachwear ranges this year. I'll be paring my swimsuit with some chunky sandals and classic wayfarers when I'm lounging next to Lake Zell. Kenzo and Burberry summer collections both feature chunky sandals this year but I've got a budget friendly and comfy pair from Clarks.
As soon as I saw the Venice print swing dress I knew I had top have it. I'll wear it on holiday but this won't get stored away with the rest of my holiday clothes when I get home as I'll be paring this with a cardigan for work or with my patent red pumps for weekends away with friends. This dress isn't really on trend but 50s style never rely goes out of fashion.
My final outfit is going to be perfect for a post dinner evening stroll when we are on holiday or on the days when we go and visit cities nearby. The utility trend is is all over the high street at the moment and is a little more stripped back and minimal than my normal look. I prefer not to be overly fussy when I'm on holiday and the temperatures can reach about 27/28 degrees so this light dress will be prefect. I picked up the khaki shirt dress from New Look Curves but I've seen some great ones in River Island too.
Are you heading off on a summer holiday this year? If so, what will you be packing?
