back to blog

Counting down the days until your summer holiday? We are too! Whether you’re jetting off abroad or sticking to staycations, there’s no better feeling than treating yourself to a new holiday wardrobe to wear on your trip.

So, you’ve got your holiday booked and now you’re looking for outfit inspo that’s going to keep you cool and comfortable? We’ve done the hard work for you and rounded up what to wear on holiday for plus size women, from travelling outfits to evening-ready dresses.

Keep scrolling to check out the holiday-ready outfits you’ll love.

What To Wear To Travel On Holiday

The most important thing you’re looking for in an outfit when travelling is comfort. Especially if you’re travelling long distances in a car, the last thing you want is to be hot and uncomfortable. Opt for loose and floaty designs and avoid denim!

These two options tick all the comfort boxes whilst still feeling put together. The zebra print joggers are made from a lightweight woven fabric with an elasticated waist and adjustable drawstring tie, offering a loose and floaty fit. Create an athleisure look with the tie dye jogger shorts paired with a relaxed tee and white trainers.

What To Wear On A Beach Holiday

Swimwear is a given for a beach holiday but if you’re heading to a pool party or just want to head down to the pool in style, our beachwear offers a range of lightweight statement styles to throw on over any swimwear.

Beach dresses are easy to throw on as you head out and about and our beach shirts level up any swimwear combo. Both are made from lightweight fabrics so you’re not adding any extra warmth into your look, only extra style.

What To Wear Abroad On Holiday

Finally jetting off abroad this summer? Chances are you’re heading somewhere hot and you’re looking for outfits that will keep you cool but channel all the holiday vibes you’re after.

Casual Dresses To Wear On Holiday

Whether you’re going on a city break or by the beach (or both!), dresses are so easy to throw on during the day, keeping you cool and comfortable at the same time.

These casual dresses offer a loose and floaty fit with a sleeveless design to keep your arms free. Whether you’re looking for something long or short, they’re easy to wear with all your go-to sandals and you’re good to go.

Tops To Wear With Shorts On Holiday

Switching up your usual dress obsession for a top and short combo? These are our go-to top styles to pair with shorts.

Bardot tops are a great option if you’re looking for more coverage across your arms but still keep you cool with your shoulders out. The floaty loose fit and length make them perfect to wear over denim and jersey shorts, and the tropical print means you’re channelling all the holiday vibes too.

This broderie anglaise vest top is a great daytime option if you’re on a city break exploring all day. Guaranteed to keep you cool made from a cotton fabric, the shirred upper is perfect for larger busts offering comfortable stretch in the heat.

Holiday Abroad Outfits

Following the loose and floaty theme, whether you opt for the all in one jumpsuit making outfit planning and packing easy, or these comfortable culottes with a basic vest, your daytime plans are covered.

What To Wear In The Evening On Holiday

Holiday Evening Dresses

Heading out for dinner in the evening? Whether you’re abroad or opting for a staycation, the chances are it’s going to still be warm in the evening. If you’ve spent a day by the pool or beach, there’s no better feeling than freshening up, getting glam for dinner and showing off the tan you’ve developed that day.

Florals will always be a holiday favourite, just add a pop of colour with these evening-ready dresses. Completing your outfit in one, head out to dinner in style with flat sandals or heels – the choice is yours.

Dresses not your thing? If you’re abroad and the temperatures don’t drop until the middle of the night, try to avoid jeans and opt for lightweight linen trousers instead.

This floral kimono is easy to throw on over any low-key outfit combo, injecting a pop of colour and evening glam into the simplest of outfits. Or opt for pastels in these light green linen wide leg trousers, effortless to wear with simple tees and going out tops, just slip on a pair of sandals.
