Holidays booked? Before you know it you'll be kissing the wind and rain goodbye, downing that compulsory airport pint (one of the only places it's acceptable to drink at 7am) and officially going off the grid for 2 weeks as you lie in the sun drinking cocktails (the only other place it's acceptable to drink at 7am) and to put it lightly, we're jealous! But we're going to be super nice to you today and help you pack that holiday bag. We know, it's a tough job but somebody has to do it!
We know already that one of the first things in our suitcase will be a wrap dress! This is really one of the most versatile styles that can look amazing dressed down with sandals or trainers or dressed up with heels! Not only this, but this just so happens to be a universally flattering style. The wrap neckline never fails to lift the bust while the tied waist draws the eye to the waistline. The Frill Hem here will add volume to the bottom of the body and create a visual space between the legs and the material of the skirt for a slimming effect on the legs.
The GTT Team love a good playsuit, and this holiday essential in particular very nearly caused a physical altercation between my co-workers earlier this week, for good reason! Firstly, how about those ultra summery colours paired with the 60's style retro floral print? The high waistline here is a great way to emphasise the waist while elongating the legs, which is further highlighted by the short hemline. The playsuit style does all of this while offering more comfort and security than a mini dress. In summary: Legs for days!
Speaking of 60's Vibes, we've been LOVING this lime green mini dress! This mini hemline never fails to elongate the legs for a super flattering look, while the shift style hangs from the shoulders and skims over the shape of the body rather than hugging the curves, making it that little bit more comfortable over the summer! The curved lining under the bust creates the illusion of curves in such a natural way!
Elle Woods...But make it Summer Holidays Edition! This skirt once again features our beloved mini hemline (Oh, hello Kendall Jenner legs!) While the split at the front shows that little bit more skin for a flirty feel. In addition to this, the high waist and thick waistband will highlight the waist and elongate the legs further. Pair with a t-shirt for a relaxed look or with a bodysuit for a sultry streamlined feel!
Oohh you know we love a little bit of back detail, and it doesn't get much better than this one! Firstly, the square neckline shows off the collarbones and that little bit of skin while offering more comfort than a deeper v neck. The puff sleeves here add volume to the top of the body, which is balanced out perfectly with the volume of the skirt. But can we talk about the bow detail at the back? We're way beyond obsessed!
Shorts and a nice top? The V neck and ruched detailing of this style never fail to have a flattering effect on the bust, while the frill detail throughout the neckline and puff shoulders help add that little bit of volume to the top of the body, while also creating a visual distance between the upper arms and the material of the sleeves for a slimming feel. Plus, doesn't that tie detail at the bust just add the sweetest feminine detail?
City Break coming up? Firstly, we're jealous. Secondly, how perfect would this dress be for wandering along the streets of prague (or if you're more of a staycation kinda gal, wandering along Grafton Street!) The halterneck style is a great way of highlighting the shoulders and balancing the body by drawing the eye upwards. The lightweight fabric here also means that the dress will hang from the shoulders and flow over the tummy and hips, rather than hugging the curves, meaning that it will allow for comfort and movement throughout the day!
Can't see any of these styles making your Instagram followers jealous? Fear not! We've got loads more styles here:
Enjoy your holidays and have a mojito on us!
