3 ace places for holiday fashion

The wind’s howling like a confused Labrador, there’s more rain on the streets than in a Noah’s Ark re-enactment, and newspapers are already panicking about a shortage of grit…

That’s right, it’s time to book yourself a holiday.

More people are choosing to avoid the disaster of the Great British Wintertime by heading to sunnier climes, and it’s easy to see why.

Just imagine – instead of family arguments around the dinner table, you could be sipping a stubby on a beach in Australia, or discovering how the locals celebrate Crimbo in an obscure part of the world.

But if you’re looking forward to a sun-filled Christmas, you’ll have to pack appropriately.

That means no puffy parkas, woollen gloves or bulky boots – this is the chance to haul your summer clothes from the back of your wardrobe and make the most of the sun while you can.

Struggling for sunshine clothing? Then take a look at this list for our travel-wear recommendations.

Each of these companies excels in quality and cost effectiveness – so don’t be afraid to shop to your heart’s content.

Shoes International

Whether you’re traversing the streets of Melbourne or lounging on a beach in the Caribbean, you’ll need a pair of shoes that are durable, lightweight, affordable and comfortable.

After all, no one wants to end an enjoyable stroll through foreign streets with blisters and bunions.

For our money, little-known footwear seller Shoes International ticks all the right boxes.

This UK-based stockist provides a huge number of major brands to its customers, including Dr Martens, Rieker, Ecco, Mephisto and many more.

With such a broad range, you won’t struggle to find a pair that’s ideal for daytime strolls and night-time fun.


Missguided has been making waves in women’s fashion for years, thanks in part to its site’s impressive melding of shopping and social media.

Taking a leaf from Tumblr and Pinterest, Missguided’s site is brimming with sartorial recommendations from other users. So you’ll be able to piece together a holiday outfit with the help of thousands of people.

Aside from having a crowd-sourced personal shopper, the Missguided range is diverse enough to suit most occasions. If you plan on a big night out during your hols, this is the place to visit.


There’s no stopping fashion outlet ASOS – it’s raced through the internet like a juggernaut bounding through plasterboard and concrete. If we were a stockbroker, we’d be shouting ‘BUY ASOS! BUY IT NOW!’

But as humble fashionistas, we’ll just tell you that this the ideal place to diversify your holiday outfit. It’s managed to combine up-to-the-minute styles with high street prices.

This is perfect if you’re hitting a hip and happening part of the world like Berlin, ensuring you don’t stick out like a particularly unfashionable sore thumb.
