Help needed with holiday wardrobe!

Recommended Posts

Hi - being as you are all so good at getting bargains & advising on what to buy & what we MUST have, I thought I'd pick your expertise!

I'm going on holiday to Thailand mid February and I need a new holiday wardrobe. I don't want too much & don't want to spend much. Reason being that things are so cheap out there & I want to go with just basic essentials and a very light emptyish suitcase!

I already have sarongs & a couple of bikini's I bought in the sales. I have my sassari crocs to wear at night with my little dresses.

I am needing probably a few shoestring t shirt tops

3 - 4 pairs of shorts, literally for wearing only for breakfast or day trips. The rest of the time will be bikini & sarong on the beach!

3 dresses ( I might be ok here).

a couple of lightweight floaty crop trousers & floaty tops ( cool as poss)

A decent comfy outfit to travel in all that time!


Beach bag ( I may make one or buy an Omlet bag)

Please please help on where to buy these cheaply at this time of year!

Any advice on a mix and match holiday wardrobe would also be great!

I need to travel light as my case will be stuffed coming back!!! :D

I have looked at Next online, a few nice bikinis there - but nothing else takes my fancy & the prices are bit :shock: for stuff that will then have to be put away until later in the year. A friend offered to lend me some clothes bless her, but then realised that she's away at the same time as me! he he.

Our local Matalan had hints of Summer Things the other day -


if you look carefully you can find some really nice things that no one would believe came from Matalan and they don't cost a fortune.


By the end of the month more places should have summer stuff as soon as they have cleared the sale racks. I remember looking for a warm jumper last year in Jan/ Feb only to be told that they were stocking summer items now :shock:

Oh yes - Cheshire Oaks! Of course, they would definitely have some summer items!!!

Will definitely look in Matalan & Tescos. I have had a look at what I have got put away from last Summer and some bits are fine - I'd forgotten what I'd got! :oops: But bikini's I am short of - so I will definitely take a look at the above mentioned places! Thanks everyone!
