Happy Holidays! The perfect guide to help you sort out your sartorial picks for this holiday season
Holiday season is upon us—with fairy lights and a nip in the air. We’re all planning to finish work deliverables and counting down to vacation time. Whether you’re planning to head to chilly London or somewhere tropical, you’re going to need breathable and fashionable outfits that have a free-spirited, vacation-worthy vibe and reflect your state of mind. Since, everyone has their own idea of the “perfect” travel uniform, especially during the holiday season, you could go for travel outfits that resonate with the kind of vacation you’re planning to take.
With sustainability becoming increasingly important, it’s good to go for fabrics that are sensitive towards the environment, but just as fashionable. If you’re confused on how to style your vacation wardrobe, scroll ahead to see our guide on what to carry if you’re catching a flight for your Christmas holiday soon. We’ve made sure that you’ll be environmental friendly with any of the sartorial picks.
Lightweight and breezy dresses—Beach Vacations
Planning to fly somewhere warmer to get the much-needed sun? You’re going to need relaxed and comfortable tea length dresses, maxi dresses, long skirts and capes to get you sun-and-sand ready. Make sure to add beach-appropriate lightweight and breezy floral dresses, midriff-baring swimsuits and, of course, bikinis. (Pro tip: Liva’s fluid fabric is soft to touch and dresses made with the fabric will make for an amazing addition to your wardrobe.) Accessorise your look with cat-eye sunglasses, straw hats, leopard print micro slings and beach bags.
Sweater dresses—European Holiday
If you’re heading to Europe for your Christmas break, you will need to include outfits that are equal parts cozy and chic. Step out of your comfort zone and embrace the festivities with oversized sweaters, printed scarves, oversized-blazers and don’t forget the season’s must-have staple, sweater dresses. Pick bright colours and fun patterns, and style them with stockings. You can even go for the sock-and-sandals trend that will be perfect for breezy days, or go with thigh-high boots if you want to be party-ready.
Co-ord sets—Activity-focused vacations
If you’re the kind of goal-oriented person who’s going to visit all the wineries in Napa Valley or planning to take a pasta-making class on your Italian sojourn, then you’re going to need a wardrobe to enhance the whole experience and make your photos Insta-worthy. Add patterned wrap dresses, white lace midi dresses, co-ord sets, and wide-leg pants with organza sheer blouses to channel the ’80s fashion in your vacation wardrobe. Ladies, let’s be conscious of the environment and add outfits made in the ultra comfy fabric, Liva, which is not only flowy, but also contributes to a healthier planet. For your accessories, go for straw bags, easy-to-carry backpacks in vegan leather and hoop earrings to finish of your look.
Sheer blouses—Resort vacations
Very similar to a beach vacation, but different. If you’re looking for the ultimate getaway where you just want to lose track of reality, relax by the pool and get a massage, then let your travel look reflect the vibe. Go for kaftan dresses in fun prints like stripes, geometric or even floral. You can also choose slip-dresses in soft and sustainable fabrics, T-shirts and sheer blouses, along with a pair of linen or denim shorts for your spa days. Add a tote bag, flip-flops and chunky earrings as your go-to fashion essentials to complete your look.
Couldn’t get away from work and are planning a staycation with your girlfriends? Opt for effortless and sustainable fashion for this staycation, with knotted skirts, sheer blouses, one-shoulder gathered dresses and shirt dresses. These breathable outfits, if made with the fluid fabric by Liva, will make you want to stay in them all day, and let you relax and unwind over the holiday weekend. Make sure to add some statement earrings, because you never know when you would need to accessorise during you vacation.
As we become mindful of our carbon footprint, let’s start making conscious choices, especially when we are planning a vacation. The fabric by Liva, the eco-conscious fashion brand by the Aditya Birla Group, is not only breaking myths about eco-friendly materials (which are soft and have a natural sheen), but is also fashion-forward. And that is perfect for the environmentally conscious woman, who is looking to make a change—even when she’s on vacation!
