Pack a fashion punch with holiday-ready outfits from QVC!


A sneak peak at Thursday's Kim & Co TSV!The sun is out and the mercury is definitely on the rise, so we’ve got our fab Let The Sunshine In fashion event coming up on Thursday to help you celebrate high summer in high style, wherever you’re planning on being.

We’ve put together seven looks with fashion picks, shoes and bags to suit any holiday destination – from a city sightseeing break to a tropical faraway escape – and even if you’re not going away they’ll look great… as proven by our impromptu photography set, the QVC offices!

We’ve included some luxurious leather bags from a new range by Lady Wilnelia Forsyth, and wedges from Khrio too, plus loads of your favourite fashion brands, including Pomodoro, Liz Claiborne New York and Marble.

Celebrity stylist Zoe Lem helped us put the looks together and we’ve included some of her comments to help you understand dressing for your shape as well as your destination.

Where do you fancy going?

Bath Spa break lookSpa Break – Bath

A stylish and simple look for a short break in one of Britain’s beautiful spa towns; accessorise this outfit with some gorgeous sunglasses and a glass of something crisp and cold!

Zoe explains:

“A delicate print that will not over power or intimidate, this sleeveless shirt is a cool but extremely flattering shape and colour.

“I have picked up the lighter tones in the pattern with the trousers to create a fresh look for sunny days. If you want to accentuate the waist more you could add a belt, but make sure at your narrowest bit not widest. Actually, if you are pear shape this is a great look to send the eye to the top and away from the bottom half.

“If you’re combining colour to a very light or dark base like these trousers, it is important to pull the look together through the accessories, so I have chosen some fabulous wedges and a bag in teal, which is an incredibly flattering colour on almost all skin tones.”


Country House Weekend – Cotswolds

This gorgeous ensemble will ensure you stay covered up and comfortable in the countryside, and features Thursday’s Today’s Special Value offer from Kim & Co – you heard it here first!

Zoe says:

“This floaty but flattering empire line nips in at most women’s smallest bit, and keeps the legs cool. The lemon bolero picks up on the colour within the dress but most importantly balances the shoulders with the volume on the dress. It’s a great price and very versatile, so it’ll will work very hard in your holiday wardrobe.

“I have picked up the neutral tones with the bag as the colour on the dress and bolero are statement enough. This stunning WF by Wilnelia Forsyth leather clutch is the perfect accompaniment. Plus, the darker tones within the dress lend themselves to some versatile Khrio cut-out wedges.”

A perfect Tuscan holiday outfit

Vineyards and Wineries – Tuscany

If you’re craving sunny days driving along idyllic European coastlines, this stylish ensemble in sun-bleached pastels will ensure you fit right in with the surroundings.

Zoe says:

“You want comfort on a day of absorbing the local culture. Soft beautiful shades of nude and pinks are so flattering in the sunlight.

“This textured soft-knitted jumper and jeans combine fresh colours so that you will both feel and look cool and stylish. The top gives shoulders width for balance and the capri trouser has just enough fabric in it to flatter rather than drown the leg.

“The tan Khrio wedges are a neutral colour and will lengthen the leg as well as flatter the ankle, while wedges are a great comfort option for holiday too. We’ve also brought in the pink with the two-tone bag to bring the whole look together.”

Perfect for relaxed dinners by the beachside, this chic outfit is ideal if you’re looking for something cool and comfortable of an evening.





Lesley Ebbetts mock wrap dressDesert Adventure – Las Vegas

You can bet on making a splash wherever you are, be it a poolside bar or the world-famous casinos, in this stylish outfit.

Zoe says:

This gorgeous dress is a mock wrap style, so it has all of the flattering attributes of a wrap dress without the worry of embarrassing moments with the anything comes undone.

“The style really accentuates the female form, nipping in at the waist and adding balance to the shoulder and hips. You have many colours to bring in from the pattern but I have styled it with some great Khrio sandals, and picked up on the purple with some stunning earrings, balancing the colours from the dress.”


Elegant Cruise
 – Transatlantic

This gorgeous dress from Liz Claiborne New York is ideal for an elegant dinner aboard, or for a stylish stroll around the Big Apple on your arrival.

Zoe says:

“This fabulous dress is in beautiful colours that will really bring our your eyes, whether they’re blue, green or brown. You have a few colours to choose from when picking accessories, but I have gone metallic to lift those rich jewel colours.

“This gold-coloured shopper and sandals really accentuate the colours within the dress and will really add lift to your face and skin tone. Metallics can add youth and radiance to a style and will also be great on holiday as they will go with everything.

“The cut of this dress is very flattering, nipping in under the bust to make you look slimmer and longer-legged. It’s great for hour-glass and pear shapes to create balance, and if you are straight up and down it will create a shape.

“Swap the bag for a little clutch and a fabulous pair of earrings and you are ready for dressed-up drinks.”

City Sightseeing
 – Paris

This chic look will ensure you fit right in amongst the French capital’s fashionistas. Accessorise with a wide belt from your wardrobe for that perfect finishing touch.

Zoe says:

“You want to be cool in the city. The A-line skirt is the perfect if you are either pear-shaped and wanting to balance out your shoulders, or straight up and down, and wanting to give volume to the hip and create an hourglass silhouette.

“If the hips and bum are the parts that you are conscious of, then this is the skirt for you. It gives a fab curvy shape. By bringing together the white Khrio sandals and Tignanello tote, you create a complete look by bringing in the colours from the pattern. You’ve suddenly got a beautifully thought-out but effortless look.

“The skirt would also look equally good with a white T-shirt depending on your colouring – navy is very flattering.”

    These are all very inspirational and give me lots of ideas, apart from the Desert Adventure. That is the last dress I would take to LV, it’s much too formal and fitted and certainly overdressed for a poolside bar.
