STYLE ADVICE: I would like some fabulous pieces for a city break in a hot country

Posted on: September 28, 2015

QUESTION: I need some light weight clothes for a city break in a hot country. Am size 18. Need short sleeves and deep but bright colours and patterns. Need trousers, black or vary that will hold me in and make me look slimmer!budget value! Ie not too expensive! Many thanks!

ANSWER: Your city break sounds delightful, especially as the British weather has been less than desirable lately! Loose fitting tops in lightweight fabrics are a fab choice for your trip as they’ll be comfortable in the warm weather and can also pack easily without creasing. With this in mind, we’ve chosen a selection on items we think you’ll love:

1. Windsmoor top, £69: – This chiffon blue and purple floral top really sums up you’re description, perfect for daytime sightseeing with the addition of a shoulder bag and flat strappy sandals. Transform this blouse into evening chic with a pair of kitten heels and a pair of drop earrings:


2. Violeta top, £24.99: – Raspberry is such a lovely colour to wear as it looks fabulous all year round and suits every skin tone. The v-neck is your go-to neckline to create a flattering shape and the ruffle detail adds a beautiful feminine touch:


3. Mango top, now £29.99: – Another gorgeous pattern blouse, this time in a light silky fabric. This can be worn on black or navy trousers and is also very versatile for day and night:


4. Violeta trousers, £44.99: – All the tops we’ve suggested will really complement a pair of black tapered trousers – wear the blouses loose rather than tucked in and pop on a long but delicate necklace to add some glamour. We love this pair by Violeta as they are cotton and sit on the ankle, which makes them a wonderful summery option. The slim let will also be a lovely contrast to the loose feel of the blouses:


5. Ghost trousers, £69: – if you’d rather go for a lightweight loose option, these wide leg trousers by Ghost as a great alternative:


6. Monsoon necklace, £29.99: –  It’s always worth packing a couple of pieces of jewellery in case you go for an evening meal or just feel like jazzing up your look! long necklaces always look fabulous over tops and blouses as they elongate your neckline and draw the eye inwards. There are so many wonderful styles on the high street, we particularly like this elegant tassel version:

It doubles up as a carry-on bag and is ideal for all your daytime sightseeing items. This very cool tote by DAY instantly caught our eye as it’s tres chic and will finish off any outfit perfectly!
