Deciding what to wear in the south of France?

Hot, sunny days mean comfort is key, but you won’t want to compromise on your look on the stylish coast. Try adding a little French chic by adding classic monochrome to your outfit. Oversized shades are a must-have in Cannes, or style a larger-than-life hat in St Tropez.

For evenings out in the south of France, keep your style classic. Create clean, simple lines to show off your silhouette and tan with an elegant dress and strappy sandals. Don't forget something to cover your shoulders as the temperature drops in the evening.

Wondering what to wear in the Mediterranean?

Think bright, bold bikinis and statement cut-out swimming costumes. Throw a sophisticated cover up on for between the pool and the hotel, and don't forget to accessorise - jewellery adds the final touch for a perfectly put together look.

Whether you're picking your outfit to wear in Marbella or choosing a sophisticated style to wear in Italy, choose beautifully bold colours for your evening look. Block colour tends to sit well with sparkling jewellery in the evening sunset - and don't forget your high heels for that special holiday feel.

On a Cruise

Cruises are all about keeping things easy and relaxed.

You'll want to pack clothes suitable for multiple destinations, so be sure to bring outfits you can wear in Mexico, in the Bahamas or wherever the ship sets sail to! Style floaty maxi dresses and floppy hats in the daytime for total on-deck comfort.

High glamour is an essential part of evening cruises. Ball gowns, evening dresses and beautiful pieces of statement jewellery should feature heavily in your cruise ship eveningwear. Finish your look with sparkly, classy heels and you're all set. Remember, there can be a chilly sea breeze at night so be prepared for every eventuality.

United Arab Emirates

What you wear in the UAE is all about respectful sophistication.

Make sure you keep your knees and shoulders covered, and keep those necklines high, too. Loose-fitting clothing is great for staying comfortable, while respecting the country's culture. Scarves are a must-have for your UAE wardrobe - they're ideal for covering up when necessary.

Jumpsuits and brightly patterned outfits are a great choice to wear in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Jazz up your evening style with some chunky jewellery, and don't forget to throw over a neutral scarf for the perfect evening look.

The Balearics

avg 25.5°C

Packing outfits to wear in Majorca, Ibiza and throughout the Balearics is all about fun fashion.

Bright neons and patterned playsuits are perfect to wear in Ibiza in the daytime: dress up with chunky-heeled sandals to add a little glam to your daytime holiday style, or go for comfort with a pair of white flats.

Whether you're hitting the clubs or heading out for a sophisticated meal, eveningwear in the Balearics is certainly bold. Pack those brightly-coloured dresses, the most flamboyant jumpsuits and pair them with statement heels, and your evening is sure to be off to a great start!

Amalfi Coast

The rising temperatures on the Amalfi Coast mean cool, cotton comfort is ideal.

Keep it simple in lightweight dresses and sunhats on the Italian coast for an effortless look. Remember you may need to cover up your shoulders and knees when checking out religious monuments, so always pack a light, neutral scarf.

Eveningwear on the Amalfi Coast is all about designer style. Elegant dresses and dainty shoes are perfect to wear in Italy, along with eye catching accessories which add a stylish edge for a perfectly sophisticated evening.

Greek Islands

Whether you're packing outfits to wear in Santorini, Mykonos, Corfu or Kos, the same fashion rules apply.

Greek Island style is all about the pretty details. White cotton and crochet details are ideal to wear in the Greek Islands and the floatier the better. Remember to pack your favourite flat strappy sandals for daytime island hopping.

Channel the pretty detail from your daytime dresses in your eveningwear too. Bright colours and statement ruffles will give that glamorous edge. Don't worry too much about accessories to wear in the Greek Islands - let your outfit do the talking.

On safari

Choosing what to wear on safari is key to enjoying your trip.

Go for neutral shades to avoid unwanted attention, along with a hat and sunglasses for keeping cool in the heat. Make sure your footwear is comfortable too - boots are often best.

What you wear on safari should always be about comfort. Linen materials and light shades are essential for keeping cool, and make sure you always wear comfortable, flat shoes - walking boots are great in the day but something more casual is ideal for the evening.

South East Asia

Low

As the weather can get very hot and humid here, pack light, loose and comfortable clothes to wear in South East Asia.

Draping dresses are ideal to wear in Thailand, and be sure to pack something to cover up in if you're planning on visiting any temples.

Keeping cool is also the priority in the evenings as it can still be very humid. Sheer fabric dresses or chiffon skirts with pretty details make ideal evening dress, and sandals are essential for enjoying the nightlife. Loose-fitting is once again key, so keep it more casual when travelling.

Florida

Floridian style is all about the fun.

Thinking what to wear in Miami? Go for hot pants and the latest athleisure looks. Packing outfits to wear in Orlando? Opt for neon details. Travelling to Key West? It's all about the flip flops. Casual and trendy but comfortable is the theme!

Eveningwear in Florida is simple yet stylish. Go for something floaty in block colours with statement heels to wear in Tampa, or an all-black outfit is perfect to wear in Miami - simple sophistication is Florida's style.
