3 Outfits Ideas for Summer Getaways with Your Girls

By Millie Richardson, Copywriter

Can you believe it? Sunny getaways with the girls are finally a thing again. We can almost taste the cocktails waiting to be sipped and feel the thrum of girl-group anthems destined to be blasted. And if you’re anything like us, you’re already looking forward to dressing up for such scenarios. After all, donning cute clothes makes everything that bit more exciting, right?

But in case you’re stuck for inspiration, we’ve rounded up 3 cute holiday outfit ideas for you and all your gal pals to wear. Expect pastel shades, gingham dresses and more dreamy goodness that will make you the best dressed set of besties in town.

Scroll down and get your suitcases at the ready…

1. Cute Casuals

For our first instalment of holiday outfit inspo, we’re looking to cute and casual styles that are perfect for lazy beach days, strolls around shops and pretty much everything that doesn’t require going all-out glam. A flattering pair of tie-waist shorts you can throw on with a light tee, or a ditsy cami that effortlessly elevates your faithful pair of denim shorts, is a great place to start.

Then, think about adding some of this summer’s must-have accessories to take the look up a notch - 90s sunglasses, gold hoop earrings and satin bandanas are a few of our favourites. To finish the look, slip on some buckle strap sliders. They’re comfy enough to keep you from complaining about sore feet and stylish enough to keep you on-trend.

2. Picnic Prints

From city escapes to beach breaks, a pretty picnic print never looks out of place. Which of course, is why we (strongly) encourage adding a gingham dress to your packing list. Bonus points if it has Jo March-worthy puff sleeves, an easy-breezy smock silhouette and irresistibly cute frill trims.

Make this summer holiday outfit idea work for day and night by styling with a gold chain necklace, a basket bag, and chunky sandals or white trainers. If you really want to unleash your inner Jo/prairie girl, layer your frock with a white frill collar shirt – now, if that doesn’t scream ‘Instagram-worthy summer holiday outfit’ we don’t know what does. Time to start practicing your poses, ladies.

3. Ice-Cream Shades

Talking about Instagram-worthy holiday outfit ideas, it doesn’t get much more picture-perfect than matching your clothes to your ice-cream (which of course, you’ll be enjoying plenty of). So, why not dedicate a day to rocking head-to-toe pastels? Especially since they are the synonymous with summer dressing.

We love how the soft shades look toughened up with denim fabrics, oversized silhouettes and sportswear-inspired pieces – think bucket hats and hiking sandals. To score some serious style points, we suggest opting for a concoction of pastels. Lemon yellow and soft lilac is just one perfect pairing you’ll want to try out. Now, who else suddenly has a sweet tooth?
