Vacation fashion is all about effortless style. The ability to easily wear an outfit within a moments notice and still look good is very key. Do you agree with this? While on a vacation all you want is nothing fussy in terms of fashion.
Light airy outfits which you can easily put on are essentials when going for a vacation to a warm place. Fashion trends will always come and go but the beauty about style is that you can play around with fabrics to your liking. All you need is few versatile pieces and the styling possibilities will be endless.
I was recently privileged to go for a heavenly vacation at the North coast. It was so luxurious and was all I needed to cool off my mind from the hectic Nairobi life. Alittle walk down memory lane; I was fortunate enough to stay at the Pride Inn Paradise, Shanzu. The service at this resort exceeded my expectations for sure. The Swahili decor in the rooms was so breathtaking. The moment you get a glimpse at of the panoramic view of the hotel, you will instantly get into vacation mode.
One fun fact about this hotel is that it is the largest aqua safari themed water park resort in the Coastal region of Kenya. You actually get to meet the big five! It’s equiped with the multi level slippery slides, water canons, climbing frames and a giant 500 litres bucket of water which empties after every few minutes over the guests below it in a big FUN SPLASH. This makes it such a perfect family vacation resort. Incase you are looking for a holiday destination I can tell you for free, with this resort, you will be over the moon the entire vacation time.
Anyway, I digress..back to Style and Fashion. I happened to rock cropped leggings in two different ways and thought why not share with you the looks. Probably this will give some style inspiration to someone out there. Leggings are cozy and comfy when wearing around the house but they can also form part of a cute vacation outfit.
Tip when buying cropped leggings: Opt for the slip free ones with a secure band to keep them in place.
When talking about versatility, leggings have the ability to be versatile. They have practically weathered the storm and are here to stay. The fact that they are lighter than jeggings makes them perfect for warm weather conditions. The cropped types are even better. So lets get into the two styles. Shall we? Links to the stores where i got the outfits will be put at the end of this post.
Style 1: Kaftan + cropped leggings
For the first look, i rocked this crystal chiffon kaftan in blue print. Kaftans of any type are really flattering on plus sized body frames. They are such perfect pieces while on a vacation at the Coast. Not to mention, they are super light and comfortable to wear.
Whenever I’m going to a warm place they are one of my go to pieces. But besides vacays, kaftans make perfect casual outfits especially if you are breaking from the ordinary jeans.
This cute straw hat is a perfect vacay accessory. Not to forget these strappy sandals too. Straw hats not only add a chic element but protect you from the harmful sun rays. Just ensure you go for wide beamed types to reap maximum protection. For size details this particular hat is 57 cm.
Style 2: Green sheer long top + cropped leggings
For my second look, i went for this green sheer long top. Like i said when i visit warm places, easy garments which i can quickly style are my go to. This green sheer top which was a find from BelaBstyles helped me achieve exactly that. It’s the kind of outfit which you can put on a moments notice and to crown it all its breathable hence perfect for the high coastal temperatures.
I love the vibrant green color. This top is super flattering for plus size body frames. An added bonus to this top is that you can style it with hot pants, jeggings or a cute denim skirt and still look cute. You can consider visiting my Instagram page. Besides styling this top with jeggings, i will showcase different ways of rocking it real soon.
I finished off the look with these cute white beaded sandals and a straw bag.The straw bag is so great for throwing in few of your necessities when moving around.
