Perfect poolside accessories for every type of holiday

I know we’re all still wearing jumpers and jackets at the moment, but the days really are getting longer and the temperatures are going to start warming up soon! I’m not sure yet what my holiday plans will be but even a Bank Holiday weekend at home is a great reason to put some stylish and fun outfits together.

Holiday looks can be kind on the purse

Bikini top – Tu at Sainsbury’s
 I want to be able to wear this season’s lovely bright colours, stripes, pom poms and frills for as long as I possibly can. I don’t want to spend too much money either – I’ve promised to be good about buying lots of new stuff and I’m going to stick to it! I’ve seen some great little tops and holiday dresses that I really love in the Tuholiday shop in particular. One item I really like is the orange frill bikini top – I could just pop a blouse over it to wander around on a holiday stroll.

Summer holiday gear can last through the seasons
In my 5Spring Styles post I looked at outfits you could wear across different seasons. You get much more wear for your money that way I think, which is always a welcome bonus, right? I would say that holiday outfits can be worked like that too by mixing and matching, and it’s definitely what I’ll be doing this summer. I could, say, wear a spaghetti strap top with a linen shirt on top, so I’ll be fine when the sun’s out and also when it’s not (which could be the case a lot in the UK, but that’s what makes it interesting!)
Mix and match is right on trend
Luckily for me the fashion world’s great and good are throwing out all the rule books when it comes to mixing and matching. This is really good news as I can now pull together whatever patterns, textures and colours I feel like to create my holiday outfits.
Pomp pom hat – Tu at Sainsbury’s
Pompoms are appearing on everything this summer season, from the hems of cut-off wide leg pants and tops to hats and scarves. You can mix these with frilly v-necks with bold floral prints as well as stripey skirts and jumpers – maybe even add some sparkly diamante flip-flops to be right on trend. There are some great nailart ideas out there too that I’ll be trying out which could really rock my mix and match look big time. Of course you can always top it off a funky summer hat if you like, to add that last dollop of this-is-so-me to your look, which I sometimes like to do!

I’ll be trying out a few looks with something a little bit bold and eye-catching. I’ll be adding some of mywell-loved pieces such as belts with funky buckles, long colourful scarves and maybe add some animal print shoes to create interest and colour. I’m actually really looking forward to summer now so I can try them out 😃.

Will you be working the mix and match look this season? Have you got any top tips that could help me to make it look really amazing?
