Ladies heading on holiday to Thailand this winter will want to look their best on the beach. That’s why they will be packing a selection of the season’s hottest beach accessories to complete their holiday wardrobe.
For many stylish women travellers, dresses, jackets and shoes are only part of the essential items needed to complete the ultimate holiday collection. In fact, for most stylish ladies, an array of holiday accessories is an absolute must to ensure that every ensemble shines to its fullest potential.
Whether it’s an outfit to wear when you hit the shops or something smart but casual for Sunday brunch at the beach club, a new hand-bag or a pair of sassy sunglasses can make the difference between simple and stylish.
The year ahead promises to offer a rainbow of bold colours and loud style statements, so there is plenty to inspire travellers in the latest trends and fashion pieces.
Bright and Beautiful
The outfits paraded down the runways during the recent Spring 2016 fashion previews did not disappoint when it came to accessories – especially the fabulous array of brightly-coloured bags on show. Pastels seem to be on their way out this season, as bright and bold hues make a bigger style splash. Vividly coloured bags offer the ideal way to accent the shade of your chosen holiday outfit, whether you opt for a handy tote bag or a smart leather backpack. Fine examples include the chic mini leather backpack from Topshop, which is fabulous in crimson and carefully designed to leave your hands free and your belongings safely tucked away.
Next year, a growing number of style-savvy ladies will be most likely be channeling their inner Kate Middleton by donning tiaras. While the mere mention of the word ‘tiara’ automatically conjures up regal images featuring elaborate headpieces encrusted with diamonds; many of this season’s pieces combine tiaras with headbands for a more dressed-up bohemian look. The tiara headband from Numero Ventuno, for example, offers the best of both worlds, and is the ideal accessory for keeping long hair elegantly under control on warm, tropical nights.
Bold is Best
If you’re more of an up-do kind of girl, don’t forget to complete your outfit by donning a pair of statement earrings. One of the biggest jewellery trends to set fire to the Spring 2016 catwalks was brightly coloured dangly earrings, which came in a plethora of unique shapes and sizes. Chandelier earrings will bring a pop of bling to your outfit, and offer an easy way to dress up a simple ensemble and make the transition from afternoon to evening-wear easy. Bold colours are at the top of 2016’s style stakes, personified by the turquoise drop earrings by Wendy Yue.
Keeping up with the Clan
In the fashion world, there’s one thing you can be sure of – if the Kardashian clan are wearing it, then fashion-forward ladies won’t be far behind. One member of the clan isn’t technically a Kardashian (Kendall Jenner is Kim’s younger sister), but her statement metallic choker was one of the favourite pieces in this year’s Balmain show. For those that can remember, Choker necklaces were big in the 1990s, and now they’re back and more fabulous than ever. Metallic designs like Kendall’s are set to be one of next year’s stand out accessories, although simpler designs will obviously work better for a low-key lunch or dinner while on holiday in Thailand.
Hippy, Hippy Shades
If you were thinking of upgrading your trusty aviators in 2016, now is the time to buy. Not only are shades an essential piece of kit for a holiday in sunny Thailand; they also offer a quick and easy fix to add instant style to your daytime ensemble. Once again, strong colours will pack a big style punch for ladies that want to make a statement next year. Modern embellishments, chunky frames and oversized lenses are all details to look out for when selecting your next pair of sunglasses. The funky pink glasses from Kenzo are a perfect example for anyone looking to create a sassy beach babe outfit.
