Destination Dresses

Let’s be honest, the best bit about jet setting off across the world on your hols is buying a new dress perfect for your summer destination. For some reason it feels easier to take fashion risks abroad and step outside your comfort zone without judgement from your peers at home. Who cares if, on a whim in duty free, you thought a canary yellow kaftan was a good idea? Your judgemental neighbour Barbara is being judgemental thousands of miles away so why not brave a new trend or print? Each day of your holiday deserves a destination dress so that you feel fabulous 24/7! Experiment with mini to maxi lengths, vivid colours and bold prints with the right accessories to get that vacay feeling while looking effortlessly stylish.

This look is for the woman who is no stranger to travel. In and out of Gatwick terminal 5 for work she is desperate for a proper holiday. The Louche ‘Zelda’ in the blue chambray has been on her wish list for months along with the Louche 'Sunny' passport cover. Her plan is to hide from work emails with the oversized ‘Nikki’ cat eye sunnies and wear the cute ‘Etta’ earrings to finish off her powerful jetsetter look. All she needs now is a large wine and all the tapas!


If your way of holiday-ing is totally chill and without a schedule in sight then the Wanderer look is for you. Choose a bold colour with a subtler print if you don’t feel brave enough to go all out with both. The Louche ‘Sirin’ dress is the perfect option! In a bright mustard yellow with an all over ditsy floral print, the Sirin’s fabulousness is all in the detail. Featuring a yellow button through front, 30-degree weather friendly spaghetti straps, a tie detailed bodice and POCKETS! Contrast the mustard yellow with the Louche ‘Patsy’ earrings in blue and throw the ‘Clay’ Crossbody bag over your ‘Sirin’ to store your euros and disposable camera. And don’t forget your ‘Nikki’ sunnies!

For the women who prefer tanning on the beach to sightseeing in the city, take inspiration from the Sunbather. Granted, you will mostly be in your bikini roasting in the sun but for beach to bar dressing you need a statement destination dress. The Louche ‘Paz’ tiered midi dress in coral is the statement dress of the summer and a must have in any holiday wardrobe. Complete with pockets and a gorgeous embroidered bodice, the Paz needs to be accessorised to perfection. Match the embroidered blue tones in the Paz with the blue ‘Bernie’ hoop earrings and keep your beach bits safe in the Louche ‘Walker’ Bag. To avoid a disastrous predinner sunburn pop the Louche ‘January’ hat on to shade you from the summer rays.

Yes you’re on holiday but that doesn’t mean you want to relax! With a list as long as your arm of tourist attractions and towns to explore, you’ll need a destination dress that won’t let you down. Choose something light with coverage to avoid any chance of sun stroke ruining your carefully planned itinerary. The Louche ‘Zelda’ in a pink and white stripe with wooden buttons and pockets is not only adorable but has longer t-shirt sleeves to protect you from the sun. Style your ‘Zelda’ with the equally as cute Louche ‘Miriam’ earrings. You can’t get any summerier than deckchair stripes and rattan daisies. Wear the Louche fedora to toughen up this cute ensemble and look effortlessly chic. To keep any tickets or mementos from your adventure safe wear the ‘Bree’ wallet on your wrist and you’re ready to explore!
