Six summer holiday essentials


When you’re on your holidays, you want to look your best. And since you’re getting away from it all it’s nice to treat yourself to a couple of new bits to make your holiday wardrobe something to remember in summer 2019. Here are six things you can’t afford to miss out of your holiday fashion shopping basket.

Round sunglasses

Choose a circular frame for your 2019 sunglasses. They’ve got a retro feel and you can find them in a huge variety of materials and colours to coordinate with all your outfits.

A straw bag

A summery straw bag, with fringes if possible, is the perfect place to keep your holiday essentials. Head to the pool with a large straw shopper full up with your sunscreen and beach towel, or pack your sight-seeing essentials into a crossbody style when you’re holidaying in the city.

You don’t need to go big when it comes to packing for your holiday. According to The Telegraph, even a fashion editor can pack light and travel with hand luggage only for a summer holiday break.

Max that dress

An easy way to look full on glam is to wear a maxi dress. There are leopard print, frilly, wrap over and floral maxi dresses to choose from at AX Paris, plus plenty of stylish accessories.

A floor skimming skirt on a maxi dress will give your look full on style with minimum effort required. The only thing you’ll struggle with is which colours and patterns to choose.

A pair of strappy flatties

Sandals are a girl on holiday’s best friend. Strap on a pair of grandad sandals when you’re pounding the pavements on a shopping spree. Flip flop your way along the promenade to your sun lounger on the beach. You’ll probably need more than one pair of strappy flat sandals to go with all your other summer fashion essentials.

A new style bikini

A high waist is the style to go for when it comes to bikinis this summer. It’s a style that sets it apart from recent years, so you’ll look up to the minute fashionable, but also have a hint of the vintage about you because this shape bikini is inspired by swimwear of the ’50s and ’60s.
