The fashion styles to note are pretty straightforward and casual with a beach vibe to them. After all, chances are that our vacay spots will be somewhere near a beach. Therefore, I vote for lots of stripes, all whites, denims, tons of prints including exotic flowers, tropical plants and power reds.

Styles to opt : Stripes rule!

There’s something very sophisticated about stripes and Breton stripes always look and feel so summery. But, if you’re not into their nautical vibe then go for funky, multi-colored stripes and make them more sassy. There are plenty of options out there. And don’t be afraid to mix them all up or combine them with a tropical theme print. Anything goes with stripes and that’s their greatest attribute. 😉

Love this combo of a white boho style shirt and striped wide leg pants paired with a round straw bag as seen by this model who's laying on the sand. Image by Monsoon/Accessorize.

Classic whites

Can white ever fail you? NO! Just like a black little dress can’t fail you, same goes for dressing in all white. Can’t go wrong. It looks elegant and easy going and shows off beautifully tanned skin.

Love both white summer dresses. They are worn by two beautiful women on a windy day with sandy dunes in the background. Image by Monsoon/Accessorize.

Denims are a girl’s best friend…

Could that be more true, or what?! Denims are perfect for any laid back occasion, keeping us warm during those chillier nights and helping us dress down any upbeat outfit should we need to.

A boho style white shirt over denim shorts with flat sliders and a straw hat looks perfect at a Greek island or any other resort for that matter. This model looks laid back as she sits on the stairs in front of a Greek home facade. Image by Wallis.

Prints all around!

Print patterns are huge. They are cool, trendy and I totally love those with a boho vibe to them. I think it will be very hard to out-date them, therefore I say let’s embrace them.

Exotic flowers and tropical inspiration

I’m quite sure you have noticed the frenzy with anything tropical, both in interior design and fashion world. Exotic flowers and lush green plants ooze an energizing vibe from the tropics. Nature’s imprint can be traced lately on swim suits, kaftans, rompers, dresses, shorts, skirts and dresses; you name it! She is the greatest inspiration source after all.

Power reds : the eye-catching summer vacation outfit ideas

So even if you’re not into all white, then you could still opt for an all red outfit oozing a powerful but flirty vibe. This is a color that flatters everyone, so why not give it a go…!
