Just as we were all getting used to athleisure, another fashion term comes along to confuse us and spike our interest. But what is jetleisure?
Coined by Grazia writers (the same people who popularised the term athleisure to begin with), jetleisure is the latest fashion buzzword. It reers to the most insta-worthy clothing iteams that you could possibly pack for your holidays. Practicality is out, and bold colours, sculptural shapes and slogans are in.
Want to get on board with the trend? Here are the key items you need to find before you book your plane ticket.
The Beach Dress
Every blogger knows that finding the right beach dress for potential Instagram snaps is crucial. Whether they’re planning on using Santorini’s VSCO-effect views as a backdrop or Bali’s ‘#nofilter’ beaches, the dress is a must.
The Sun Hat
The sun hat is undoubtedly one of the most important accessories when it comes to perfecting the beach look this season. And one of brands to look out for is Eugenia Kim. With slogan-embroidered straw hats aplenty, there’s never been a more Instagrammable accessory.
The ‘It’ Swimsuit
We’re looking at Instagram heavyweights Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner. Never has there been such hype surrounding thigh-cut one-piece swimsuits (well, since the eighties anyway). So much so, that someone has searched for the cult garment every five minutes this year.
The Basket Bag
Yes, we’re still blabbing on about the basket bag. But who can blame us? While browsing the Internet for potential buys, words such as ‘fun’ and ‘bright’ crop up quite often so make sure to bag a basket number complete with pompoms and embroidered wording.
OK, so you’ve probably figured out by now that jetleisure is really just another word for ‘holiday clothing’. But the good news is that this is one trend that you can commit to without re-stocking your entire wardrobe. Just remember – it’s all about getting that perfect holiday snap. So plan your outfits around your surroundings, choose at least one stand-out piece, and pose, pose, pose.
