Playsuits, lace blouses, off-the-shoulder tops, denim shorts, floral dresses … there’s no shortage of vacation outfit trends for 2018. Fortunately, some of the most high-profile models are ahead of the curve, having already taken a few days’ rest dressed in this season’s looks. Take some inspiration from Josephine Skriver, Joan Smalls and Alessandra Ambrosio to find your own summer style.


Josephine Skriver goes for boho-chic


Off-the-shoulder tops and t-shirts are a must for 2018’s spring-summer season, adding a touch of sensuality to any look. Danish model Josephine Skriver has taken this on board, channeling boho-chic in her pleated shorts and long-sleeved strapless top in a retro print. Perfect for sunny days by the sea.

Fans of the road trip can take inspiration from globe-trotter Joan Smalls. Travel was a recurring theme at the latest shows, and is now a major trend in clothing and accessories. The Puerto Rican model opted for shorts in this style, with numerous pockets, and a crop-top decorated with a logo which nods to the current sportswear trend.


Alessandra Ambrosio embraces the casual look


Far away from the constraints of daily life, vacations are made for chilling out and taking each day as it comes. Casual and comfortable dressing is what’s required, as exemplified by the Brazilian model Alessandra Ambrosio. She’s soaking up the sun in denim mini-shorts and a loose white shirt with rolled-up sleeves. A perfect outfit for lounging around or taking a long walk. Note that she’s carrying a string bag, one of the key accessories for this season.
