February in London is synonymous with half-term, that time of the year when winter has lost its allure and everyone is in much need of a rejuvenating break to see us through the rest of the winter, which could still last another three months…
Generally speaking, when it comes to city style, I am mostly sitting on the edge of generic. Always sticking to neutral palettes, with only a hint of colour or print every now and then. Wearing the same investment handbag through the season. Comfortable shoes, rarely over 9cms high. And so on…you get the picture – have I mentioned my abhorrence of anything ubiquitous in fashion, or rather in today’s language, items gifted to bloggers all over Instagram?
However, when it comes to ski and beachwear, I metamorphose. When it comes to holiday fashion, I love nothing more than an out of the ordinary skiing outfit, a great printed bikini and pareo combo, a hat and playful sunglasses. I feel that it plays a large part in making us feel like we are on holiday, in fact, holidays are when I pack everything I would not usually feel inclined or have the chance to wear on the daily grind.
So, whether you are heading for the slopes, the beach or simply giving your mind a break at home, I have compiled here a list of pieces that would enhance any stylish girl’s holiday.
