White Shirt Wednesday: Balearic beats

ibiza fashion inspiration

The eternal jet-set dilemma – one suitcase, five days, what to wear?

Whilst we may have shelved our glow sticks and neon body paint, the small island of Ibiza still resonates with a party-ready sartorial style all of its own.

Taking inspiration from the white Mediterranean isle that gave birth to an earthy bohemian aesthetic, relaxed holiday silhouettes with a dusting of dance floor glitter gives a whole new meaning to destination dressing.

Celebrating a unique '80s aesthetic, contemporary suitcase essentials are elevated to glamorous chic with blazing ingots of gold, cool sterling silver and flashes of retro tie dye. The ideal solution to precision packing, giving your carry-on a strong Balearic boost alleviates the mix n' match doldrums that have plagued style-savvy urbanites for seasons in the sun.

Injecting a nostalgic edge into stylish separates, blissed-out statement pieces from the likes of Isabel Marant and Chloé are giving new life to disco-ball retro designs, letting your inner front row fashionista transition from the street to the beach with minimal pre-holiday panic.

Oozing with a low-tempo party buzz, this creative confluence of iconic styles and bold dare to wear designs are the perfect pairing of style and sophistication. Showing just enough leg to showcase your new glowing tan, these metallic high-shine shorts are the only statement piece you'll need. A surprisingly comfortable shape taken from the aged Levi 501 denim jean, these re-purposed rolled hem silver shorts are the ideal mirrored piece for a casual beach to bar segue or all night al fresco dance marathon.

Given a laid-back edge thanks to our light and bright VAUGHAN Bettie shirt, these impactful summer shorts are toned down for daytime wear thanks to the innocent, feminine allure of this all-silk short sleeved shirt. Worn tucked into the waistband of these Isabel Marant cotton Jaylin shorts, this cool, clean design adds a touch of relaxed sophistication to high octane separates.

Worn in unison with a accessories that embrace a carnival of colours, hand-woven friendship bracelets, shocking pink pompoms and detail braiding carefully connect the fashion dots from dance floor diva to hedonistic honey. We can't get enough of these sea-gypsy inspired leather sandals, worn with a matching hot pink woven beach tote and Copa Cabana cotton and gold bracelets, this look perfectly pairs dominant runways trends with a spicy personal penchant for day-glow colour.

Hang up your Manolos this summer and take a trip down memory lane with this nostalgic ode to good times and good vibes on the sandy island of Ibiza – not forgetting the native mantra: eat, sleep, rave, repeat!
