Pack up your case and jet off to sunnier climates with these must-have holiday accessories.
April saw record-breaking temperatures for some, but the weather can be so unpredictable, now is the time to getaway to sunnier skies. Whilst the shops are already aflutter with salacious summer accessories it can be tricky knowing what to choose. (Your case can only take so many pairs of heels!) Stilorama’s fashion accessories editor picks the cream of the crop to ensure your holiday ensembles are the talk of the resort this year.
Louboutins are a girl’s best friend. Fact. But for summer, these metallic silver leather stilettos will add a touch of class to a cool evening stroll after dinner. The cute almond-shaped peep toe and multi-tonal glitter finish evokes memories of supermodel Eva Herzigovia on the red carpet. Team with Givenchy’s mouth-wateringly zingy lemon clutch and a black maxi.
For playtime you need a colourful print bikini. Mara Hoffman has just the ticket with this ruffle-detailed Aztec-print version. It comes in a balconette style, can be worn with or without halterneck straps and is more eye-popping than a Solero on a summer’s day!
Kurt Geiger’s cork block platforms always measure up on the style stakes. This season invest in a suede camel coloured pair with T-bar detail. Inspired by the disco era of the 70s they’ll make the essential accompaniment to your crisp chinos and chiffon blouse for understated daytime dressing.
Keep your pad protected with this charming purple and white floral ipad holder by Diane Von Furstenberg. It’s the ideal going-away present to yourself, and will ensure you stay stylish on the beach whilst tweeting “oh, how hot it is today!” And dress those eyes with the hippest trend of the moment, a pair of round-framed sunglasses. Yves Saint Laurent’s acetate version feature bold black frames and transparent lenses, and scream the epitome of Audrey Hepburn, circa 1961.
