As you may already know, summer fashion is my all-time favourite. Floaty fabrics, boho details and tropical patterns – what more could you want?
Playsuits are my favourite things to wear during summer, and I wore a lot during my trip to the Dominican Republic. I find them more flattering on me than a dress or skirt would be, but they’re still flirty and summery. I did try to branch out of my comfort zone a few times though (unfortunately not all pictured here) – even wearing a pair of wide leg trousers that I never would have gone near a year ago.
Since I loved everything I wore on my trip, I thought I’d put together a little lookbook for you all. Here are my favourite outfits from my trip to DR!
THE STRIPED ONE
This look was one of my absolute favourites, and also one of the most comfortable to wear. I’m definitely a pants kind of girl – I just can’t get on well with most skirts – and these ones from ASOS really make a statement.
I love stripes for summer, and these vertical stripes make my legs look a lot longer than they actually are. I really appreciate that they’re high waisted; it hides my holiday food baby and allows me to wear a crop top without feeling too exposed.
Since the pants really do most of the talking in this outfit, I paired it with a simple black crop top from Free People and a pair of New Look tan wedges (because nothing says summer like tan) to give me a little extra height.
Or Little Black Playsuit.
This playsuit is one of my favourite things to wear. I love the neckline, the black works with everything and the wrap style makes it really flattering on my ‘ruler’ body type. I pretty much look for wrap everything because it actually makes me look like I have a waist (I don’t) and makes my chest look a little smaller (I’ll take what I can get).
My favourite thing about this is its jersey material, it makes it incredibly comfortable and isn’t too tight or constricting. I paired it with the same wedges as the last outfit to make my legs look a little longer.
I couldn’t find this exact playsuit as I got it a while ago, but I found a really similar one from Missguided.
THE TROPICAL ONE
A cute coverup is a must for a beach holiday, and I love one that fits the tropical theme. This one from South Beach is sheer enough that you can tell it’s a coverup, but it also covers enough that you can wear it pretty much anywhere.
The frilled hems make this so pretty and feminine, and I love the tie-front to make it a little more interesting. This is also really easy to put on, which is essential for a beach coverup.
THE MINT ONE
Yep, another playsuit… I’m not even sorry. This was my favourite outfit from the entire trip, and possibly the most ‘me’ outfit I’ve ever worn. I love how boho this is (which makes sense, since it’s from Sisters of the Tribe), the frilled hems and tie-front give it such a floaty, feminine feel. I especially like the length of the shorts, they’re not super long but they’re not so short that I have to keep tugging on them.
To make this extra bohemian, I added a pair of incredibly strappy gladiator sandals. I couldn’t find the exact pair, but these are pretty similar.
THE DENIM ONE
If I wasn’t wearing my tropical playsuit coverup during the day, I was wearing denim shorts paired with a black bikini top. I just really love this classic combo, it’s such a timeless summer outfit. I especially love ripped denim shorts, and this pair from Zara look awesome and are affordable.
A minimalistic, black bikini top pairs so well with these shorts, and I really love this strap style as opposed to the classic halter neck. I found this one at Hollister, which is really similar to a newer style they’re selling now.
So those are my favourite outfits from my trip to the Dominican Republic! I hope you guys enjoyed this post, let me know in the comments which look was your favourite. See you next time,
