In our suitcase… The Plus Size Fashion Packing Guide

With summer holiday’s fast approaching there is no time like the present to start getting your ultimate holiday wardrobe together. So if you’re off to catch a few rays then make sure to keep up to date with our ultimate plus size packing guide, full of not just our favourite summer lotions and potions but our favourite plus size summer fashion finds! From kaftans to cruise wear and totally gorgeous bikinis, we will make sure you’re looking hot this S/S’16

Cover Up / Tunic

This Anna Scholz plus size eyelash lace up tunic makes for a perfect beach cover up over your swimsuit whilst you are glamorously lazing around the pool but add the slip that comes with it and a pair of wedges and you are ready to hit the bar too. The key to packing well and light for the summer is to choose versatile pieces that you can mix and match throughout your trip and this gorgeous tunic that can be sheer or blocked out with the slip is a perfect example!

Tunic: Anna Scholz, sizes 16-28, £89.75, Available here: ANNA SCHOLZ

The Bikini

Don’t shy away, plus size women have been told for years that a black one piece is the way to go, but it is time to own your curves round that pool and go for something with a little more vavavoom! We LOVE this red two piece from Forever 21 with caged bikini bottoms. The high waist is great if you aren’t used to wearing a two piece as it adds a bit more coverage but to be honest, a high waist bikini in a bold red also has a great 50’s vibe which we love! The top of the bikini is more bra like – which is great to add support to a larger bust – so look out for these styles as they will ultimately give better shape than a bikini top with no structured bust cups.

Statement Sunglasses is basically team SLiNK’s favourite thing about summer time, period. We have picked out this gorgeous, cat eye pair in white (to tie in with the Anna Scholz tunic) and because they are bound to turn heads all summer long. There are only two left at Selfridges so it is time to get shopping.

The key to packing shoes for a holiday is to keep it simple. Shoes take up space and add a huge weight to your luggage so go with a pool pair, a pair for walking and then one super versatile evening shoe. We love these nude pink, Clarks wedges. A nude shoe is super versatile for all kinds of outfits and a wedge always says sunshine and cocktails to us. A wedge is a more comfortable and relaxed way of rocking some added height and relaxing is what a holiday is all about!

That’s it for now! Stay tuned for more tip top, fashion and plus size fashion summer holiday must have’s.
