For travelling we all understand that being comfy is key - but who said you can't be stylish? Ditch the trusty turn-to tracksuit bottoms and turn to a pair of disco pants. As the older and funkier sister of leggings, disco pants give you a good amount of comfort and stretch, you can contort yourself into almost any position whilst trying to get comfy on long journeys. Chunky sole plimsoles will hug your feet whilst walking to the furthest away department gate and this chunky knit cardigan is perfect to snuggle into after slipping on sunglasses to hide telltale bags. Speaking of bags, this is perfect to fit in plenty of fashion magazines, food and duty free goodies. Jet-set chic, oui?

This is a fab little bikini, it aptly reminds me of an ice lolly. I've never worn a bikini, so if this is to be my first one then go all out and make it bright. The woven bag is perfect to pop in a book to read by the pool, along with suncream to prevent lobsteritis. The the crochet top and shorts act as a great little cover up while the woven sandals just scream holiday and are ideal alongside these retro frame cats eyes. 
I'd be tempted to head out sightseeing in this number! Versatile.

The studded heart earrings are super quirky so I decided this look needed to have a burst of colour and embrace the Ibiza vibe, therefore, lime green tootsies are a must! Jelly shoes offer a legendary and childish blast from the past and the sunglasses are a must because if not you'll be squinting all the time and look like an angry and unapproachable tourist. This is such a cute one piece and when you pop the shorts over the bottom half you appear to have a whole new look because the top half of this suit acts as a cami/ strapless affair. I'd say the hat and bag are pretty self explanatory.  

A lovely sunset supper means that a flowy little number and a bit of glitter is a must, the denim jacket is for when that cool holiday breeze breaks out and to make you look like this is look is effortlessly casual. These magazine clutches will suit to a T and indicates a fashion savvy individual. Hand chains, to me, represent a more exotic style so are perfect to be worn sat at a table overlooking the sea watching the sun set. Rock a soft and light smokey eye and match nails with the main item in the look, and you are ready to impress. 
You don't want to be hitting the club straight from the beach in just a sarong (unless it's that sort of club) so you need to rock beach glam! Matching accessories and shoes make this simple beach worthy playsuit club ready. When they say accessories can make an outfit, its true, it's as easy as that. It's always good to have a little bit of gold (or any metallic) catching the lights in the club, this way you sparkle across the dance floor like you belong there. Fabulously, this bag can be used as a clutch or can be slipped over your shoulder leaving your hands free to get your groove on. 

I'll admit, I tried to pick everything to settle within the £400 prize budget but I failed miserably. I guess that's why New Look is my favourite high street store! Simply irresistible.
