I have no idea what I am supposed to wear in summer; I get through winter bud reading quite formally with fitted dark colours, but lose all style in the summer
What am I supposed to wear for a seaside holiday in the UK? We are camping and hoping to spend the days wandering in seaside towns, lunch in a cafe, afternoon on the beach. Simple stuff, but I have no idea what I am meant to wear. I get very down about my mum-tum and if I feel messy. But I don't want sweaty tight clothes that will make me feel like a lobster either!
I am going on a camp site holiday in France, I am currently packing: Tube skirt (can be rolled) Palazzo pants (ditto) Tailored shorts Cut offs (for really casual stuff- mainly involving pedalos) Linen trousers 3 vest tops 2 t-shirts 2 light shirts 2 evening tops 2 light jumpers 2 dresses. 2 roll up beach/pool dresses Tankini/ bikini/ swimsuit
Everything is in navy/ white/ cream colour scheme. Accent colours are red and silver- even down to shoes and swim wear.
I can pick up any 2 bits and know they'll work together. I don't need to think about it. All I change is how dressy/ casual it is- often with the shoes.
I recently picked up a pair of m&s cropped jeans. I never usually buy their clothes but i wanted the beauty box!
However, they are fab! Hide my belly (how, I know not - think because the waistband is just high enough) and are warm enough to see me through those English summer days when it should be warm but isn't.
Apart from that I really think dresses are the easiest way to look put together with very little effort.
I've just been on a similar holiday ( though caravan, not camping ) and can recommend what would be practical, though not necessarily stylish. I mainly wore cropped trousers, lightweight trousers, t-shirts, cardigan, hoodie, sandals / flip flops. I always want to do the cool casual thing with a t-shirt dress, hat, shades, nice shoes etc like a Joules model but never manage to pull it off! So I just settle for practical, much easier to enjoy yourself if you're not too hot/cold, struggling in clothes that are too tight, getting your jeans wet in the sea, uncomfortable shoes etc!
