Your Ibiza trip is booked! You’ve been shopping all year round, planning your outfits for each day and night and are now faced with the terrifying task of fitting those ten pairs of shoes in to one tightly-packed suitcase. Well, to make the whole packing experience a less stressful task, Addicted has compiled an Ibiza Style Guide for 2011. Make sure you follow these five trends, keeping your travelling light and your holiday unforgettable
5. THE MAXI
Keep everything floor-skimming, bold-printed and flowing. A maxi dress is a lightweight and versatile item which can be worn again and again, without anyone even noticing. For the day, keep the shoes flat, the sunglasses over-sized and add a big, floppy hat. Transform the dress at night, by adding sky-scraper wedges, statement jewellery and cinch in at the waist with a belt.
For this year, make sure at least one item you’re taking to Ibiza has fringing. From bags to miniskirts, jewellery to t-shirts, this embellishment is a huge trend this summer. To bring out the rock chick in you, simply add a fringed waistcoat to any outfit. Team a pair of fringed sandals with the classic little black dress to nail that well-known Ibiza hippy look.
3. THE HAT
No holiday outfit is complete without a hat. There are so many different shapes and sizes to choose from and each one offers a different look. Bring back the 70s with a big floppy hat or add a trilby for an indie vibe. From preppy to elegant styles, team with over-sized sunnies or wayfarers and show off the fashionista within.
2. ELECTRIC POP
Think 80s, think bright, think Ibiza! From nails to lips, platforms to belts – make sure the colour is electric. Yellow nails are the hottest trend this season and in the Ibiza sunshine, they’ll look gorgeous. Contrast a nude coloured dress by adding an orange, red or blue skinny belt. If you’re keeping the colours neutral on top, keep the shoes vivid, colourful and in your face.
Ibiza is a glamourous island, full of fashionable people and what goes well with glamour? Glitter! Anything shiny or metallic will look fabulous wherever you are on the island. Shimmer in front of the sunset with a sequined cover-up or sparkle in Space in glitter hot pants. The glitz doesn’t stop at fashion – make sure your make-up matches, with lots of gold and silver tones. The more glitz and glamour, the better – you’re in Ibiza!
