FASHIONOMIX Planning a holiday? In a fix about your wardrobe? SATKRIT K. lists the must-haves to wherever you are headed.
It’s vacation time and each member of the family has his/her own plans of a holiday destination. Clothes and accessories make up much of the wardrobe and these are places where you should not go wrong especially if you like to stay fashionable when you are on a vacation. Here are some tips on what’s in, based on where you’re headed!
Getting to the hills is a great way to beat the heat! Summer on a mountain top is most likely cool and pleasant, so get your heavy jerseys on! Try to keep it layered rather than heavy since that always gives you the option of extra coverage over the changing temperature during different parts of the day! A nice neck wrap is a must-have or a regular shawl hanging off the shoulder when it’s not cold enough yet. Get shoes with heavy duty treads for those long hikes and treks.
Get the lycra on! Again, more emphasis should be placed on comfort and functionality rather than looking fashionable. Lycra is the most comfortable fabric to wear for adventure sport and related areas of holiday interest. Whether it is deep sea diving, skiing or rafting, lycra offers you the best in comfort and durability and has excellent breathability. There are various categories to choose from for specific sports so choose right!
A rendezvous in the jungle can be quite a unique experience… what you wear should be more functional than presentable in this case. Wear good heavy cotton cargos or shorts to go with a comfortable tee and a photographer’s vest for storage. Keep the colours earthy! Forest holidays are never fun without a bonfire…So simple printed skirts and mono tone spaghetti tops would be most appropriate… And woody natural and handcrafted jewellery is certainly fun!
Sun, sand and sea
If you’re the type that wants to escape to the calm and white sands far away from home, here are some trends for beach shopping! Don’t mind wearing a bikini? Then there is a big return of the retro, both in terms of prints, as well as stomach sculpting high waist rises this season. Clustered straps and asymmetric neck lines are also really in! Neatly done subtle block printed beach kaftans would be a great idea for those who are not up to a swimsuit. Large hats and chic glasses would add to the glam appeal.
