1. BIKINI + SHADES + KIMONO

Yet another new way to wear a kimono—as a glam beach cover-up, á la Selena Gomez. Leave it draped while you’re strolling along the sand, then simply wrap it when you’re heading for ocean-view cocktails.

2. PALAZZO PANTS + BANDEAU + PENDANT NECKLACE

Team chic linen trousers with a bikini on the beach, then swap in a camisole or silk shirt come evening.

3. JUMPSUIT + COLORFUL ACCESSORY

If your plans involved a day full of sightseeing followed by a spot of dinner, take a tip from @ASOS_Lesley and opt for a sleek jumpsuit teamed with bright red slides. Glam yet comfy.

4. MATCHING SEPARATES + ACCESSORIES

Simple yet elegant. Keeping the same color palette running through the whole look lends an effortless sophistication to holiday loungewear.

5. SLIP DRESS + BOLD EARRINGS

Whether you’re in Greece or Ghana, a satin slip dress is a must-have for drinks at sunset. If you’re not into bold earrings, you can always keep your accessories simple—the plush finish of the dress will elevate the look all on its own.

6. ONE-PIECE + SHADES + DENIM SHORTS

Touring the island? Jumping aboard a yacht? A statement swimsuit paired with denim shorts makes for the perfect day-trip combo. Just add cool shades.

7. MAXI-DRESS + CROSS-BODY PURSE + FLATS

A statement maxi can take you anywhere. Dress yours up with luxe accessories if you’re heading out for a night on the town.
