Land of idyllic pristine beaches, internationally-renowned summer festivals, a fusion of Mediterranean and Eastern European cuisine - our lucky Social Media Assistant Caroline is heading off to Croatia this month - and we're not jealous, honest... Despite our burgeoning envy, today we're compiling our ideal looks from airport-chic to poolside, to inspire your outfits if you're also jetting off to sunnier climes.
Whilst you may be destined for round the clock heat once you've reached your destination, your journey to sunny shores will be decidedly more chilly, so we'd advise a transitional outfit for the day of travelling - make sure there are ample layers to peel off! The easy-breezy fringed kimono is great for airport endeavours: from floating through security, to wrapping around you whilst you snooze on the plane itself.
If you're leaving on a day where the wonderful British weather is at its rainy prime, you'll be happy to have the wide-brimmed fedora on your person. Once you touch down at your destination, this will also ensure that you don't get heat-frazzled hair - or worse, sunstroke! With the backpack you can ensure optimum Duty Free purchases, with free hands to peruse at your leisure, as long as you don't end up missing the flight...
For the second outfit, we're focusing on the most important part of your day: brunch. As you take your first steps into the sun-baked avenues in pursuit of a chic café to eat in, this outfit will keep you looking fresh no matter how much sunscreen you've had to lather on. The laser cut-out wedges will offer you some pin-enhancing height without jeopardising your wanders around the city by being painfully sky-high. The cross-body fringed bag is big enough to keep your essentials to hand without weighing you down - phone, passport, hotel key, mini suncream - check!
After you've spent the day exploring and soaking in the sights, we recommend the third outfit for settling down to a delicious evening meal. We're keeping the actual threads super minimalistic, letting the accessories do the talking as the setting sun glints off the statement earrings. The beautifully embellished clutch bag will sit comfortably over the shoulder or in your hand - depending upon whether you end up going out for some after-dinner dancing.
For sightseeing around the endless winding roads of the inner towns, we've picked out the forth outfit. Taking the storage up a notch with the backpack, you'll have everything you need close to hand - even if you end up getting lost. The faux-snakeskin slip on pumps are perfect for meandering around without a set destination, don't leave the country without them! Naturally, a good pair of trusty sunglasses are a must whichever outfit you happen to go for, and these black rims are our current favourites.
Lastly - and arguably most importantly, we have the quintessential beach-ready look. With the bold print scarf making for a perfect hair protector, sash or just worn traditionally, this outfit is perfect for just kicking back and taking in the rays. If you haven't noticed, shoes are a no-go: enjoy that sand!
