The January holiday destination guide

Now Christmas is over, we need something else to look forward to, asap. In collaboration with our travel partner, Virgin Holidays, we are going to be bringing you a monthly destination guide with inspo and ideas for your next getaway. Where to go, what to pack and what to do. We’ve got it covered. Read on for our blues-busting pick of the month, Barbados.

 

The month: January

The first and worst of the year, there’s never been a better excuse to go on holiday than January. How to start this year off right? Avoid blue Monday altogether and jet off somewhere sunnier. January blues, who?

The destination: Barbados

Fed up with the not so great British weather? Escape to the island of eternal sunshine. The perfect January holiday destination has to be Barbados. A tropical island located in the Caribbean region of North America, Barbados is famous for its white sands, clear waters and year-round hot weather.

The day out: Swim with turtles

Travel is all about who you go with and who you meet. So, make some underwater pals this month on a guided turtle boat tour. If you can drag yourself away from the pool…

The outfit:

Nothing says holiday like a pair of espadrilles. The ultimate day to night heel, these tan leather wedges are all you need to pack in order to step up every outfit in your suitcase. We think they look best with an airy blouse and a curve-creating, denim A-line skirt. Pair the ensemble with some timeless tortoiseshell accessories and a cross-body bag and you’re ready for any adventure in paradise.

Shop the look: Red Herring – Cat-eye sunglasses, Principles – Statement oval earrings,
