Laid-Back Mediterranean Cool

We love the Mediterranean look. Their style is as much about staying cool in the blazing hot climate as it is about looking cool and staying on-trend. Long floaty gypsy-style skirts and strappy tops are typical staples in most female Mediterranean wardrobes. The key is to pick on ensemble that you can wear to the beach, and go straight for an evening meal and drinks later on. So, you could opt for a brightly colored vest top, and then pack a matching blouse that you can throw on as it cools off during evening time.

French Chic

Are you lucky enough to be traveling to France in the very near future? Well, even though we are insanely jealous, we’re going to help you out anyway. Mainly because we’re just really considerate like that. The great thing about French style is that it’s simple, classic, and so it looks just as good wherever you choose to wear it, whether you happen to be at home or abroad. If you’ve got a slim figure, nothing says French style quite as much as the nautical look.

Try teaming a pair of capri pants with a striped camisole and kitten heels. If you really want to go for it with the nautical theme, you could add a sailor style hat to complete the ensemble. But remember, try and choose something subtle – you’re going for classic and chic. Because if you choose something too ‘out there’ there’s a very real risk that you’ll end up looking like some kind of modern-day Popeye.

Brit-Tastic Fashion

If your vacation destination happens to be somewhere in the United Kingdom, you’ve got off pretty lightly in the fashion stakes. British fashion, whether English or otherwise is pretty much a case of anything goes, which is a dream come true for all you creative types. There’s nothing quite so fun as mixing things up and experimenting with different looks and styles. But if you wanted to go for any one look, we’d recommend emulating the classic London punk look. Famously inspired by legendary fashion designer, Vivienne Westwood, it’s a look that’s seeing a revival this fall. So, keep a look out for some of the punk-inspired collections that have already graced the catwalks this year.

If you’ve not yet booked a vacation, and this post has you converted to the idea, you needn’t worry. You can book flights to Istanbul and other European cities on travel websites such as Venere, as well as many others.

So, there we have it. Plenty of ideas and inspiration to help you make the very best of your European vacation. Don’t forget to send us a postcard!
