Who doesn't love going on holiday? You get to escape to a new and hopefully exotic location, soak up some sun and also eat and drink as much as you like. In the modern world, there's also the added bonus of shopping for a new summer wardrobe to be shared, with wild abandon, on Instagram.
But it's not always easy to find holiday outfit inspiration when shopping in store or online, especially if you're on a mad dash to find a few standout hot-weather pieces when it's dreary outside. Thankfully, there are some exceptionally dressed bloggers who know a thing or two about travelling to exotic climes, and who can help decide what kind of highly photographic items you could be looking for.
We've compiled a list of the best holiday outfit ideas from some of our favourite style bloggers. Shop their looks and watch your Instagram likes shoot up…
Click through our gallery for holiday outfit inspiration as well as where to buy key looks.
One of your first purchases should be a bold dress that will work hard for you, as seen on blogger Isabella Thordsen. By day, wear it with flat sandals for the beach; by evening, wear it with your favourite pair of metallic heels.
Gala Gonzalez of Amlul.com knows that when you don't want to wear a cover-up, a playsuit will most definitely do instead.
We don't need to tell you that no holiday wardrobe would be complete without a slip dress. This simple pastel affair, worn by Maja Wyh, is ideal for day or night.
Poppy Delevingne's Solid & Striped swimwear line is winning fashion hearts everywhere, as proven by many a style blogger wearing her much-coveted collection. Camille Charrière of Camille Over The Rainbow is just the latest to don a simple one-piece from the supermodel's swimwear brand.
Is there anything that screams 'holiday' more than a multi-coloured maxi skirt? We're currently eyeing this Missoni one up, thanks to Tamu McPherson of All The Pretty Birds.
There's one sandal brand we have seen everywhere this summer: Ancient Greek. These tan versions worn by Fashion Me Now's Lucy Williams are already on our holiday shopping list.
Desert Mannequin blogger Anum Bashir knows a thing or two about how a decent accessory can pull any outfit together. Case in point: her bright red Celine sunglasses paired with a white shirt and denim trousers.
The perfect way to look chic when you've just got out the swimming pool/ocean? Don a loose-fitting maxi dress. This white kaftan with pink pom-poms worn by Soraya Bakhtiar, is just on the right side of fun, and it will promise to hide that extra portion of calamari we'll be having.
A woman can never have enough off-the-shoulder dresses or tops on holiday. A white frock à la Pandora Sykes is ideal for wearing towards the end of your holiday; it will show off your tan and make everyone jealous.
It's unlikely that you'll be able to get your hands on a pair of Rihanna's Puma x Fenty furry sliders, so at the moment you can only admire these on the feet of Natalya Kanj of Five Five Fabulous (bottom). However, Zara are doing a nifty pair that we'd happily wear to the beach.
On holiday, you always need a hat. Whether it's to protect your head or simply look fabulous, you can't leave home without packing one. This straw hat as worn by Carmen Hamilton of Chronicles of Her is a must-buy.
Shorts are a given when on holiday. But add a fashion twist by ensuring they have a frayed edge, as seen on Anneli Bush.
Don't want to have to do your hair every morning but want to still look chic? A scarf is very much in order. Take a tip from blogger Doina Ciobanu of The Golden Diamonds, and wrap your favourite silk scarf around your head for a cool updo.
Blogger Natalie Suarez of Natalie Off Duty knows the power of a simple dress when away in a foreign land. Not only will it keep your cool when in hotter climes, it will also give you the chance to show off that tan (again).
