Before you even board that plane, look to Kate Moss for some tip-top (and economic) holiday wardrobe inspiration. No sooner had the supermodel touched down in trendy St Tropez than we were already digging out our shortest shorts and ethnic pieces for some sassy styling.
Miss Moss makes everyday wardrobe staples work for holiday wear, taking rip-off shorts and topping them with jazzy waistcoats (she's worked three so far this hol, including black suede, white tailored and boho printed) and teaming them with a ballet flat. Not having to buy a whole new holiday wardrobe will save you a fortune in panic purchases, which is what we recessionistas are loving.
There will always be a holiday event that calls for something a little dressier, so for this we suggest slipping into a vibrant minidress. We love Kate's coral body-con strapless number, which she wore to the uber-trendy Club 55 for lunch on the beach.
