Summer’s finally here, which can mean only one thing: it’s holiday time! Yes, for those of us who are jetting off to exotic shores, it’s time to get packing. Shapely women can have a bit of a nightmare when it comes to packing their holiday suitcase, but there’s no need to fret as we’ve put together a list of our holiday essentials for you curvy ladies, to help keep you on trend and looking fabulous on the beach.
The key to packing your holiday wardrobe is to pick things that are flattering to your body shape and make the most of your curves, and to grab some key items that are easy to mix and match.
Worried about baring your body to the world? Get a little extra help with our great range of shapewear swimwear from Resort, who has a range of bikinis, tankinis and swimsuits with plenty of hidden support to give your assets a boost and keep any wobbly bits under control. We love this pretty animal print bikini for those needing a bit of ‘oomph’ or why not opt for a pretty swim dress for a bit more coverage.
Tunics are an excellent holiday option – throw over your swimsuit by the pool, team with cropped leggings and flats for an easy daytime look or dress it up with a chunky belt, heels and metallic jewellery for the evening. There are loads of different styles but dare to be different and opt for something colourful like this So Fabulous printed tunic, for effortless holiday glam or go for something more understated like this pretty printed day tunic and change the look with accessories.
No holiday wardrobe would be complete without a maxi dress (or two!). These fabulous dresses can hide a multitude of sins, help keep you supported, keep you out of the sun, but also help keep you looking stylish and summery. We love this funky, bright printed maxi from So Fabulous, which is perfect for dressing up with towering wedges and plenty of jewellery or for beachside walks.
Tottering about in high heels with sweaty feet? No thanks. We love this season’s wedges, which not only look really stylish, but also give you the height you need and they’re super comfy too! If you love a high heel this pair of Roxy wedges from Love Label are just fabulous and the platform and ankle ties make them much comfier than they look! Or opt for this low heeled pair for ultimate versatility.
No holiday suitcase should leave home without a cool kaftan. Whether you’re using it as a beach cover up or dressing it up for an evening meal; the kaftan is effortlessly glam and is so light it’s easy to pack in a few to mix and match. We love this pretty printed kaftan from So Fabulous for a versatile look – don’t forget the belt to cinch in your waist!
So, if you’re off on holiday, embrace those lovely curves and show them off in our top summer picks for your holiday wardrobe!
