When it comes to women’s trousers, this year is all about the wide-leg pair of pants – which is great news when you’re heading somewhere hot like Thailand and you want comfortable attire which is going to help you stay cool. The Henrite wide-leg crepe trousers by Theory highlight the perfect balance between smart and casual elegance, and are perfect for a smart evening meal out or even cocktails with friends by the private pool. The mid-rise waist helps to create a figure-flattering balance with the wide leg of the trouser, and can be paired with a simple camisole or vest top for maximum impact.
If you’re a fan of statement prints then you’re in luck, as 2017 is set to be the year of the neon floral. Whether you choose to wear key signature pieces with a loud floral print, or go full-on flower power from head to toe, you’re sure to hit all the right style notes. The vivid colours and patterns are also the perfect match for an exotic country with alluring natural flora and fauna, like Thailand. The wool-crepe mini skirt by Mary Katrantzou, for example, is wonderfully psychedelic in its design, and will help you achieve a sharp, 1960s-inspired silhouette.
When it comes to colours for ladies, this year is all about wearing as much yellow as possible. From golden mustard-like shades through to pale lemons and daffodils, you can take your pick. What’s more, yellow is a shade that’s going to look fantastic against your glowing Thailand tan. If you’re heading out for sunset cocktails, the Lula asymmetric dress from French Connection is an excellent choice. Nipping in it at the waist to ensure a feminine-like silhouette, it’s also eye-catching in its unusual asymmetrical form. Team with bright, statement accessories and you’re onto a beach club winner.
Stylish in Stripes
In men’s summer fashion, stripes have played a big part in the nautical look for a long time, but this year the catwalks were dotted with striped prints of varying widths. To carry this look off perfectly, look out for striped pieces in light, pastel shades as opposed to the classic nautical navy blues and fire engine reds. If you want to be really daring, choose pieces that are infused with pastels as well as vivid primary colours. The cotton-blend shirt from Yasuto Kamishita’s label is exactly that type of contemporary piece, and ideal for smarter lunchtime gatherings in the tropics.
Stone is the in-vogue colour of the moment for stylish gentlemen. Lying somewhere between white and beige, this is the perfect hue for trousers and shorts, suits and casual wear. As such, your Thai holiday wardrobe should be packed full of it. If you need to look sharp when you’re travelling as well, the comfortable jersey-fit stone jogging bottoms from Topman are the ideal choice for a long-haul flight to the Kingdom. These athletic trousers are also ideal for mornings spent padding around your private villa, making the most of the relaxing surroundings.
