Boost Your Bank Holiday Style With These It Brit-Inspired Looks

In your head, your holiday style will be the stuff of Brigitte Bardot films and your favorite fashion Instagram accounts. In reality, you end up wearing the same stretched-out swimsuit and sand-leaking cutoff shorts year after year. Besides, a pair of flip-flops is much less likely to nudge you over the carry-on baggage weight limit than, say, the Sophia Webster stompers you really want to pack.
But if you're really intent on making some style waves for the last Bank Holiday weekend of the summer, we know just who to turn to for inspiration. Alexa Chung, Jourdan Dunn, Poppy Delevingne, and Pandora Sykes are four It Brits who never jet off without a stable of head-turning pieces that we're desperate to find in our weekender bags. From Dunn's sporty-chic festival style to Delevingne's stash of glamorous swimsuits, there's a muse for every mood.
Read on for fashion finds inspired by these ladies' IRL holiday outfits. Crochet bikinis, denim dungarees, heart-shaped sunnies, and the perfect crop top all await. Sure, you're just chilling with the family in Center Parcs or eating oysters in Whitstable, but with the right look, you'll feel as though you've just stepped off a yacht. It never hurts to pretend.
