Holiday Wardrobe That Won’t Break The Bank

If you’re stressing about putting together a holiday wardrobe (it’s been a while!), the fashion experts at I Saw It First have put together some great tips on packing the perfect vacay wardrobe for £100 or less.

Olivia Crutchley, Assistant Stylist from ISAWITFIRST said: “The key to the perfect summer wardrobe is to have a range of good basics and items you can style in a variety of ways, so that you can cater to all your holiday outfit needs whether that’s for summer city breaks, island hopping or lounging around the pool with a cocktail.”


“Think staple pieces such as denim shorts, oversized shirts, mix and match bikini styles and colourful co-ords that you can wear together and separately to create more looks for the same price.

The Cozzie

“For swimwear it’s all about feeling confident and comfortable. We’re seeing cut out styles everywhere right now, especially in swimwear. They’re a nice way to show some skin without baring all. Every wardrobe needs a flattering one-piece swimsuit, style with some beach trousers or an oversized shirt to go from beach to bar. The classic triangle bikini will always be in fashion, but this season opt for a retro print and match with a mesh sarong for a little bit of extra coverage.

Up Your Accessories Game

“Making sure your accessories game is strong will help you switch the same clothes up in several different ways; dress down with sliders, a cap and a beach bag, throw a sarong over for a beach club vibe or add a pair of heels and pop of colour to transition into a more night-time evening glam look.
