The Inevitable Polka Dot Mini Dress
Yes, everyone knows that mini dresses are absolutely unavoidable during summer, so don’t wait any longer and show off those gorgeous legs in a simple yet effective mini dress! As for the print, we must say that polka dots are always a fantastic choice simply because these will never go out of style. A corset-style top will emphasize your curves in the best possible way, but if you want to add a little twist to your look, pick a dress that features ruffle detail on shoulders straps and the front panel. It’ll make a huge difference and make your combo even more attractive and irresistible, which is exactly what you want, right?
The Figure-flattering Wrap Dress
In case you weren’t aware of it, the fact is that wrap dresses are definitely the most figure-flattering style out there, so don’t wait any longer and give them a try this summer. The good thing about these is that they look astonishing on everyone, which means that you can wear it no matter your body type. The adjustable string tie closure around the waist will emphasize your waist, whereas a deep V neckline will add a sexy, jaw-dropping vibe to your overall outfit. One thing is certain – no matter which color or print you go for, you won’t make a mistake!
The Classic Floral Midi Dress
Needless to say, floral prints have always been extremely popular in the fashion industry, and this year’s collections are no exception. We can all agree that there’s nothing better than a classic floral midi dress on a hot summer day, which is why you need to get a trendy Realisation Par dress that perfectly corresponds to this description. A black midi dress that features tiny red roses is undoubtedly a fabulous choice, and you know what? Such a print is beyond fantastic as it won’t show any wrinkles, which means that you can wear it straight out of your suitcase. Does it get any better? We don’t think so!
The Quirky Backless Mini Dress
If you’re a huge fan of mini dresses but those regular styles seem too ordinary for your taste, you should get a quirky backless mini dress that will sweep you off your feet! When you look at its front part, it’ll seem completely simple and normal. However, the real party starts at the back, as the mid portion of your back will be totally exposed, resulting in an extremely sexy look perfect for summer. When it comes to prints, we must say that white stars on the black background should be your first choice if you want to go for an attractive appearance that will catch everyone’s attention. You won’t go wrong with such a print!
The Fabulous 90’s Style Cocktail Dress
Last but certainly not least, cocktail dresses are an absolute must in any fashion-forward girl’s suitcase, so make sure not to forget to pack these either. As for the style, we must say that the 90s are making a huge comeback this year, which is what you should go for a dress which is the epitome of that era. Adjustable spaghetti straps are unavoidable, and the only thing you should do is to pick the preferred print. From super trendy animal and floral prints to monochromatic looks, you won’t regret it whichever model you choose, so pick one according to your preferences and rock this style this summer!
As you can tell, each of these five dresses is ultra-packable and beyond perfect for summer, which is why you should take them into consideration and wear them on your upcoming summer vacation. Apart from looking fabulous on you, these dresses are very easy to pack, too, and the best thing is that you won’t have to waste time ironing them.

Whether you’re jetting off to a luxury, sun-soaked Caribbean island, an adventure-packed city break or a business trip, it is always wise to invest in a stylish yet comfortable outfit to travel in. Celebrities seem to have mastered the art of dressing for hours of travel whilst still looking like they stepped off the latest casual wear catwalk. From luxe bomber jackets to limited edition trainers, men’s athleisure clothing has taken off in recent years and has become a vital part of the modern man’s wardrobe. The growth in this movement has seen streetwear and gym wear weave itself into fashion shows and become centerpieces for fashionable outfits for everyday wear, travel or even a night out.
A top tip for creating a stylish travel get-up is to choose garments that you can layer, not only is this tactic very on-trend but it means that you can add another layer if the aeroplane air con gets too cold or remove layers when you reach your final destination, depending on how hot it is.

Many years ago, sweatpants were usually associated with baggy, unflattering, marl grey jogging bottoms which you would only see on the likes of construction workers in an attempt to stay warm and keep their movement unrestricted or whose wear was strictly restricted to a Sunday evening in winter. However, in this modern day, a slim sweatpant can form the basis of a stylish travel outfit. Tapered sweatpants boast an extended cuff bottom around the ankle to give them a better, more flattering fit. Team with high-tops for an effortless, trendy look.

The women’s co-ord has seen a rise in popularity over the last couple of years and now it’s time for the men’s twin set to burst onto the scene.

As mentioned above, it is always wise to layer garments for travel so you can add or remove as appropriate and achieve an effortlessly stylish look. A classic example being to wear a plain crew neck t-shirt, a shirt worn open and trendy bomber jacket to finish off the outfit. But the timeless denim jacket can work just as well and is a versatile, easy addition to a travel outfit that provides an outer layer which strikes the perfect balance between comfort and style.

There is nothing worse than feeling uncomfortable on stuffy train journey or a long flight. For travel, it is always wise to choose a tee that is light and breathable. Stick to a neutral colour palette such as white, black or grey with a relaxed fit for added comfort.

We all know that travel means having to be responsible for a lot of important documents, such as our passport, boarding passes or money. Therefore, it is essential to carry a holdall or backpack to store all of your essentials. Always ensure that your bag is small enough to be able to be taken on an aeroplane as hand luggage but big enough if you decide to treat yourself in the duty free. Opt for a statement piece that will tie your outfit together. Leather holdalls in a bold colour block work well and will always act as a stylish accessory to pull your travel outfit together and complete your look.

Most people have a desire to wear clothes that are latest and fashionable. But it seems that keeping up with latest fashion without having lots of money in your pocket is really difficult these days. This is because designer label items of clothing and clothes inspired by celebrity clothing are certainly very expensive and out of reach of the common man. However, there are many ways to look fashionable and trendy without breaking the bank or burning a hole in your wallet.
Focus upon classic, timeless items of clothing
If you try to catch up with the latest fashion and buy clothes accordingly, you will find that half of the garments in your wardrobe are such that you have no interest in wearing them. Fashion trends keep on changing and new and stylish clothes start to look outdated pretty quickly. But there are clothing items that remain timeless and classic such as black trouser, little black dress, white skirt, and so on. You can always look fashionable with the help of these classic items of clothing without spending a lot of money.
Buy more with less
There is nothing to worry if you do not have enough money to buy a designer dress for a party next week. Just take out your old party dress and get it ready for the event. Now buy new accessories to wear and carry during the function. Believe me, most people become engrossed with your handbag and the bracelet that you have worn instead of gazing at your dress. These bold and bright accessories give an altogether new look to your old dress and you become a star of the evening.
Keep an eye on sales
It goes without saying that like early bird that catches the worm, you can lay your hands on beautiful and fashionable dresses if you are aware of the end of season and clearance sales being organized by stores in your area. Also subscribe to receive news about discount sales on online stores to make the most of these opportunities.
Be Street Smart
You can look fashionable and trendy in very little money by buying items of clothing from vendors on fashion streets of your city. Believe me, you can beat all your friends wearing designer labels if you buy stylish clothes from street fashion and know how to accessorize to look very glamorous.
Last but not the least, pay attention to your beauty and hair care to dazzle others in cheap clothes and accessories.
