Summer is just around the corner and so for many of us that means now is the run up to the
highlight of the year, our summer vacation. Check lists are being written and ticked and our suitcases are filling by the day. But why not shop smarter and pack pieces that can easily be turned from day to night with a couple of easy item swaps.

A maxi dress is the perfect way to go from day to night as it can be dressed down for the beach or a day of sightseeing but can also be glammed up for a romantic dinner or night of partying. Pattern and prints are huge this season and none scream summer quite as much as a floral design. Teamed with sandals, an oversized bag for all your beach essentials and a great pair of sunnies this look is so simple to pull off. For an instant outfit turn around swap your day accessories for some metallic bling and pull on some gold platform shoes and plenty of jewellery. A shimmery clutch will finish the look perfectly.

A swimming costume is not only great for splashing about in the sea or lounging by the pool; it can also be worn in the same way as a body and used as a top. On the beach a large floppy hat looks great but will also protect you from the sun’s nasty rays. A sarong is great for when you need to hop to the bar for a drink (or an ice cream) or even if you are just a little self-conscious of your legs. Flip flops are practical and comfortable and will stop your feet from burning on the boiling hot sand. For an easy outfit switch change your sarong for an on trend hi lo skirt and add on some colourful wedges and a statement necklace to complete your transformation. (Please note, I would make sure your costume is dry before doing an outfit switch, wet patches seeping through your skirt probably isn’t the look you were going for!)

Finally, make sure the accessories you take with you can go with almost anything, there is no point packing light on clothes to take ten pairs of shoes and too many bags to mix up your outfits. A playsuit is another great way to go from day to night and by using accessories in outfits you have already out together you will create two new day to night styles.

Hopefully this short post will have given you some cool outfit inspirations and also take some of the fears out of the dreaded luggage weigh in at the airport! 

Happy holidaying~
