|If you are looking for some budget-friendly clothes for your holidays, I can highly recommend looking at the
ranges from budget-friendly retaillers like Next, checking out charity shops and shopping your own wardrobe.
I have recently returned from a holiday in the sun and was asked countless times where my
swimwear and clothes had come from. So, I thought I’d share what I wore and where things came from.
I simply took two bikinis from Next, a matching dress (which I used both as a beach cover up and dress for the evening), plus a cream lace cover up:-
Next bikini – navy floral (£25 top = £15 bottoms) – different styles available, including an all-in-one tummy control swimsuit
Next bikini – ecru floral (£25 top + £15 bottoms) – different styles available, including a;ll-in-one tummy control swimsuit
Next maxi dress to match bikinis (now only £25). Or they have a jumpsuit in the ecru collection. Plus shorts which match both colourways.
Next lace cover up (£39)
Aside from simple shorts and t-shirt type outfits (like the black shorts pictured with the black bikini top below, which were from Florence and Fred at Tesco for £10 a couple of years ago), I also wore:
- A Mint Velvet maxi dress (existing wardrobe – bought in a sale a couple of years ago) – I added a hat one day to go for a walk and wore the dress out one evening.
- A halter neck silk blouse (£5 from a charity shop) paired with existing stretchy red crop trousers from Roman (they still sell these – £24)
- A navy ruffle neck blouse (£7 from a charity shop) with tassel trousers I’ve had for years.
- A silk mixed colour top from Coast (at least 7 years old!) plus the same red stretchy crop trousers from Roman.
You may not like the items I chose, as we all have a different style personality and body shape, but you really don’t have to spend a fortune to feel comfortable and look stylish on holiday.
