Whether you’re dreaming of a mini-break or longer summer holiday, simple staycation styling will ensure you feel fantastic.
Great clothes aside, a few key accessories can really work magic. They offer a finishing touch to an outfit, the chance to bring it bang up to date, and give it fresh new appeal. What’s not to love?
A great shoe for the summer is the espadrille wedge. It’s so versatile and is perfect for wearing with a skirt or trouser. They look fab with flowing maxi dresses and are super stylish with cropped jeans, so here’s a few ideas to get your shopping brain a buzzing.
Two Simple Staycation Styling Ideas
What I personally like about them, is the elevated height. Hey, I’m just 5 ft 3 1/2 (of course, that half is important). A nude or tan toe can elongate the leg which is great. Just make sure, if that’s important for you, that you choose a pointed toe. Rounded toes reduce the illusion of height.
Next up is the classic basket bag. It comes under many guises – straw and jute – to name a few.
They’re just fabulous for the summer. Adding the carefree attitude we’re so longing to feel. They are also readily available and you should easily be able to find a design that suits your needs. I bought mine from Mango this summer. It’s huge, so I can carry everything and the kitchen sink. It also makes me feel like I’m on the French Riviera when in reality I’ll be on these shores. Not that I mind this year. Not one bit.
I’ve put together two other blog posts recently that have included accessories so you might fancy a gander at these while you’re here:
These include ideas for hats, scarves, belts, etc., and these can really jazz up an outfit.
