Who's Wearing What

16 Outfit Ideas For Your Next Holiday Break

by Adam Fletcher, Copywriter

Here, at New Look HQ, we always pay special attention to what the A-listers are dressed in. Whether it’s a volume-sleeve top, a must-have poplin dress, or a micro bag (the teeny tote is back on our 2020 wish lists), if our favourite celebrities have been spotted sporting it on the red carpet, or wearing it when slipping out of VIP club at 2 a.m., we’ve got to have it in our wardrobes, asap. Basically, if it's good enough for Gigi, RiRi, and Kylie, it’s got to be truly perfect for us as well, right? But, hands up if you’ve ever wondered, ‘What do the fashion crowd have their sights set on this month?’ Us too.

Right now, there’s one particular look that has us all feeling excited, and it seems as though the fashion crowd have wasted no time in getting on-board the trend already. Just imagine statement summer dresses worn with cat-eye glasses or aviators and, then, think of pretty beach cover-ups, woven beach bags and heeled sandals that say, ‘I’m officially out-of-office.’ Yup, you guessed it: holiday outfits are currently in the spotlight – and, trust us, they’ve never been more appealing. Let us explain...

Yes, it might still be winter, February, and freezing outside, but that’s never stopped us from dreaming of some much-needed vitamin-D. More specifically, we’re talking about planning what shoes go best with our tan lines and cocktails, and how we’re going to fit all those styles in our suitcases (are you a roller or a folder?). But, why now? For some, an (early) spring holiday is on the horizon. And, if not, well, you could see this as your first steps in planning your wardrobe for the hottest #HotGirlSummer yet.

So, how should you style your holiday outfits? If you need something super easy, look no further than an all-in-one. In new denim designs and tropical prints, the latest jumpsuits and playsuits are here to make getting ready that little bit easier. Feeling braver? Think about including some delicious banana shades (check out Kendall’s statement dress). And, if you’ve ever wanted to add some animal print to your swimwear (like Dua Lipa) – the time is now.

Here are a few celebrity styles to get you inspired…

1. Angelina Jolie

The rule for dressing for a day of exploring: comfort. Here, Angelina Jolie has opted for an oversized silhouette, sandals and a practical cross-body bag.

2. Bella Hadid

Airport outfits don’t have to be boring. Make like Bella Hadid and team a hoodie with a vest and shorts. To finish, add chunky trainers.

3. Camila Cabello

It’s been our favourite colourway for spring, and we’re about to love it during the summer months, too: neutral. Thanks for the heads up, Camila Cabello.

4. Chrissy Teigen

Staycay or vacay, get holiday-ready like Chrissy Teigen and partner your denim shorts with a white T-shirt, and a hooded cover-up.

5. Dua Lipa

Why wear one animal-print piece when you could wear three? Introduce your bikini to a shirt that has a similar pattern.

6. Gigi Hadid

Holidays call for stripe-print shirts and white shorts. Fact. Check-print sandals and a boxy bag complete your look perfectly.

7. Camila Cabello

If there’s one trend that’s sure to carry you through your holiday in style, it’s the co-ord trend. Get matchy in this season’s latest sets, just like Camila Cabello.

8. Hailey Bieber

Brilliant at multitasking, a classic shirt is the wardrobe staple that you can wear over a swimsuit or with your favourite skirt for dinner.

9. Kaia Gerber

Blazers are great for holidays, too, just add denim shorts, a slogan T-shirt and sunglasses.

10. Katie Holmes

High-waisted and slightly fitted in all the right places, the mom jean is a must for nailing the I-have-a-flight-to-catch look. Finish off with comfy flats and a tassel jacket.

11. Kendall Jenner

Nothing screams ‘I’m on holiday’ quite like the colour yellow. We’re loving Kendall Jenner’s bodycon dress with diamante strappy heels.

12. Hailey Bieber

Ditsy florals, frills, and puff-sleeves…serve up a strong holiday outfit like Hailey Bieber. Perfection.

13. Rihanna

When you’ve turned your out-of-office on, the next thing to do (naturally) is to step into lime-green tones, matching accessories and denim shorts.

14. Kris Jenner

Kris is wearing an all-black look in the heat, and we will be, too. To break things up, why not try straw accessories? So clever.

15. Paris Hilton

Take notes from Paris Hilton: nautical-inspired stripes are always a good idea when it comes to planning your airport-ready look.

16. Kendall Jenner

Kendall Jenner demonstrates that yacht trips go best with floaty fabrics, bold prints and aviator sunglasses. Admire the view.
