The Perfect Holiday Dress
Your summer holiday is now just around the corner and, aside from getting understandably excited about your upcoming trip, you’re likely to be constantly thinking about your holiday attire for this year.
With the extortionate costs airlines charge for additional luggage these days, not to mention the penalty you pay if you step outside of their strict allowances, it’s in everybody’s interest to pack frugally when going on holiday. In our quest for lightweight luggage, the days when a woman could practically take her whole wardrobe on holiday with her are long gone. These days, less is most definitely more. And that means pre-holiday shopping is all about finding the perfect dress for multiple occasions.

Combine comfort and glamour

Of course, spending your day lazing around on the beach is all about being comfortable and relaxed. And that means that the attire you wear has to be comfortable, whilst still being stylish enough to get you noticed. Fortunately, this season designers have placed huge emphasis on beach dresses. From floral angle hem dresses to gold smock dresses, holidaymakers of all shapes and sizes will be able to light up the beach in a beautiful summer dress, with a wide selection of stylish prints and styles available this year.
What’s more, this season’s beach dresses are so glamorous, stylish and eye-catching, that they can quite easily double-up as stunning, dazzling little numbers for a night on the town – a far cry from the traditional beach sarong designed to cover up cellulite and other unwanted lumps and bumps, but little else. 

Take the Very.co.uk French Connection dresses range, for example. This huge collection of frocks is designed with both lazy days relaxing at the beach and nights out partying in mind. From the beach maxi dress to the beach gauze dress, which comes with intricate sequin detail to sparkle in the sun, French Connection is certainly leading the way this year, combining subtle beach wear with stunning party frocks.

Accessorize

Of course, another way to get away with wearing the same dress twice a day in radically different situations is to accessorise. Instead of packing fifteen outfits, why not pack a few and a variety of accessories? Bulky silver necklaces, buckles and bracelets look particularly good when set against bronzed skin, and can help glamorise your favourite holiday beach dress, making it fit for any night time occasion.
