Travel: Ibizan-style summer looks

Travel: Ibizan-style summer looks

I’ve just arrived back from a week in Ibiza, amazing place- feeling just a little bit tired..!

A group of 9 of us stayed in a villa just by Santa Gertrudis, central Ibiza. It was stunning, high up in the hills of Ibiza with a private pool- perfect for relaxing after a hard night’s partying. Ibiza villa

One of my favourite parts in Ibiza was the Old Town, with its 16th Century walls and cobbled streets it’s absolutely stunning. If you climb to the top you can see panoramic views of the entire island.

The bustling Old Town is crammed full of bars, restaurants and little boutique shops. Known as ‘the white island’ due to its typical white architure and buildings, Ibiza also has a very distinctive fashion style which is personified by its own-label fashion line, Ad Lib.

Launched over 30 years ago and originally based on the underwear of farmer’s wives, Ad Lib has since grown to represent the look of the island. Using fabrics such as linen, gauze, cotton and lace, the look is loose fitting linen shirts, bohemian-style sundresses and cut-off shorts- often transparent but all in white.

I picked up this white Miso embellished maxidress, £40, (above) from Republic just before I left and it worked perfectly for the day. Also, great day-to-nightwear if you’re heading out to dinner- team with strappy sandals and accessorise with chunky bangles/necklace.

Black body con dress with twisted strips, Republic Republic has some great pieces just-in, I also picked up this fab black body con dress with luminous back detailing, just £20. The dress has brightly coloured twisted cotton strips running across the back, really livens up the outfit and great for clubbing.
