What to wear on a summer vacation

Little Black Swimsuit

If you’re like us and have returned to work feeling like you are in need of a holiday (we’re dreaming of Fiji, Vietnam or Mexico) or are lucky enough to have booked an early getaway then you probably have on your wish list a new bikini or summer dress or both.

For us, February is one of our favourite months of the year as its still summer here in Queensland and we know we still have at least until after Easter before the weather starts to cool down. This means there is still plenty of time for bikini wearing weather.

Whether you are based where the weather is still warm or you are planning a little getaway to a warmer location, we have created these outfits featuring the latest swimwear arrivals from SKYE and staghorn.

Look One: Leopard Loving

Leopard Trend

We love how this little leopard bikini is spliced with a light summer time floral. To keep the look super summery and fresh we have paired the bikini with straw accessories and a tangerine turkish towel that matches the soft colours in the floral print.

We also added a fine necklace in a crescent moon shape but you could easily pair this with any fine necklace from your current collection. We opted for gold over silver as it matches the clasp at the back of the swimwear top. We also think that gold ties in nicely with the golden colours in the leopard print.

The Solsana shoes are a little fun and complete the look.

We would also probably look to add a white linen cover up or dress to finish the look and keep it fresh.

Look Two: Little Black Swimsuit

Little Black Swimsuit

We love a little black swimsuit and think every girl should own one. What we really like about this swimsuit is that it has a little wrap detail at the front that makes it a little different to your standard swimsuit design.

We paired the black swimsuit with a pair of light washed denim shorts (vintage Levi’s would work great) and a boho hippy straw hat to make the look a little more casual and perfect for a day at the beach.

The gladiator sandals keep add to the boho luxe feel of the look while the sunglasses and turkish towel are perfect add-ons that tie back in with the other accessories and swimsuit.


Look Three: Sandy Stripes

Stripe Bikini

We created this look for the girl who loves a neutral palette and a little black dress (this dress could easily be swapped our for a little white dress if black is not your thing). We think the sand stripe bikini pairs perfectly with a little summer dress, aviators and a pair of slides and gives the look a luxe vibe. While the straw hat also helps to keep the look fresh and summery. We’d wear this look resort side in Fiji or wandering around Byron Bay.
