Nothing like having an organised holiday checklist for your wardrobe style! We all want to look good in our holiday snaps, but we don’t really want the fuss of spending hours each day thinking of how to slay in those holiday photos. I picked some of my favourite staple pieces for a good holiday: easy to style; and effortlessly snap-worthy. I am currently in love with items from Mango and have picked items from there. enjoy!
The sun, the heat, the cocktail in your hand as you lounge by the pool, tanning your smooth, glowing body. There's nothing like a poolside party to remind you that life can be really easy and wonderful sometimes. With the warmer weather coming our way you're bound to get invited to a bunch of events, so how do you make the most out of them?
How do you show off some incredible style skills, feel comfortable, and still manage to swim a few laps and enjoy the cool water? Well, ladies, we've got you covered. Read on for some tips and outfit ideas!
1. Prep Your Face And Body First
No outfit is going to look good if you're feeling insecure, so in order to avoid that, you first need to prep your face and body. A short workout right before the party will make your muscles look more defined and taut, and doing a full body scrub before rubbing in a lotion with sunscreen will give you that lovely, irresistible glow.
Your face is also important, and since makeup is a bit of a hassle at the poolside, we recommend good skincare because there's nothing like that natural summery radiance that can make you look pretty. Cleanse and tone your face, then use a serum to work as a beauty elixir and smooth the skin while also providing nourishing moisture. After this, apply sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 and you're done! If you really love makeup and can't imagine yourself going out without your face paint, we recommend a combo of BB cream, waterproof mascara, and a peachy lip gloss.
2. Boudoir Bombshell
Nothing screams bombshell like a high-waisted bathing suit, but to bring out the sex appeal even more, you want to pair that with a sheer dress. A nice wrap dress made of a see-through material that shows the outline of your sexy swimming suit is going to look hot, hot, hot! Flip flops don't really go with this look, so we recommend a pair of delicate-looking slippers to grace your feet, and some hoop earrings to dangle as the breeze blows. You can style your hair into a small bun and then use a colourful hair scarf for some added stylishness!
3. Boho Chic
A bikini paired with a long, flowy maxi dress and a giant straw hat is your perfect little hippie outfit. Pick a big bag to match the hat and wear some string sandals that you can twist around your legs. A row of plastic bangles is a great way to accessorize, and if you plan to wear sunglasses we recommend a nice pair of Lennon glasses.
4. Easy Stylishness With A Crop Top
Pick a two-piece swimsuit with the upper part that looks like a cute crop top and you'll never have to worry about your outfit. Crop tops are simply way too fun and sweet on their own to need much work, so simply pair this with a patterned pair of shorts, some flip flops, and you're done! A long necklace could be a fun little detail to add, and if you need more of a cover-up, simply pull on a baggy, see-through blouse over it.
5. Turkish Vibes
What to do if you want to wear pants to the party but the idea of slipping into your jeans on 100-degree weather is already making you sweat? Well, go for a Turkish vibe and pick salwar pants made of a breezy material! It's the perfect summer garment because it's loose, it's comfy, and yet it looks great on anyone. Whether you wear it over your one-piece or a bikini it doesn't matter, and if you want, you can pair it with a gipsy-style off-the-shoulder kind of blouse.
6. From Poolside To A Night Out
Coming to your pool party after a brunch with your parents? No problem! A t-shirt one-piece bathing suit can be your go-to (it's one of the most demure pieces you can find if you prefer to be covered up). Simply pull it on, wear a flouncy, silk A-line skirt over it, and pull on some sandals. A headscarf and simple bracelet are a great way to style it, and you can wear a brighter lipstick to top it off.
Even a pool party is a good opportunity to engage in some fun fashion! Pick a look that suits your style and make sure to rock it with a smile and a great dose of confidence!

With this increased acceptance came a reinvention of this essential wardrobe staple. Leggings are no longer just something you throw on as you go to and from the gym. Now, it's more common to pair up the much trendier leggings with duster jackets, chunky sweaters, ankle boots, and everything in between.
But, as with all things fashion, the style tide has already started to shift. There are some key looks that will be just as big - if not bigger - than 2017's most staple looks. This is even more important as we roll into spring, when the weather starts becoming warmer and much more pleasant. It also helps that restocking your wardrobe is now much cheaper if you shop at www.shoplularoe.net.
If you're on the hunt for some new inspiration, here are the top 3 biggest legging styles that you can expect this spring:
1. Embrace The Print
One of the most popular leggings styles for the upcoming season are printed leggings. Whether you go for a floral pattern, an Aztec print, or something much simpler, it's really fun to play around with printed leggings.
They are also quite versatile. This spring, you can dress them up with a funky top to wear for school or work, or use them as sweats when at home. Printed leggings are definitely a statement piece and will make your outfit stand out more. So make sure to accessorize them with neutral colours and understated jewellery.
2. Layer It Up
This season, oversized is the name of the game. This could explain why one of the most popular looks will be leggings paired with a large, chunky sweater. Since knit is back in style, you might want to try adding an oversized cable-knit sweater to complete your outfit.
And on the flip side of this trend? Dusters! Yes, you heard that right. Long dusters are back in style, and we're living for it. But instead of the dreary style of the 90's, go for a colourful, structured, or sheer duster to jazz up your look.
And if you can't get behind dusters, you can layer it up with a denim jacket, a leather moto jacket, or a bomber jacket instead. Top off this look with leggings, a white cropped tee, and heels. Alternatively, you could go with a snazzy pair of sneakers for a more casual look.
3. Keep it Elegant
Despite a less than stellar past, it's exciting to see the fashion world embrace leggings as a symbol of style. You can take your look from frumpy to dazzling by simply opting to wear a pair of cropped leggings. Bonus points if you include a zipper detail to add a trendy metallic element. Or, you could go for leather leggings and dress them up for a day or night look. Just add a flowy top or white tee, an oversized bag, and a luxe bag to complete your elegant look.
