This year some of Team SilkFred took a trip to (not so) sunny Marbs, to shoot a whole load of Marbella outfits and brand new pieces to inspire your holiday style. We’re taking YOU behind the scenes to show you exactly what went down, as well as some of our favourite clothes to wear in Marbella (or wherever you’re heading) this year!
Touchdown in Marbs
First thing’s first, we had to take a moment to check out the amazing villa and to celebrate our head stylist, Megan’s, birthday.
This gorgeous Red Frill Arm Dress is perfect for glamming up your poolside look, or for an evening stroll along the beach. A great dress to have in your Marbella style wardrobe, the flowy material makes it super comfortable and easy to slip on and off over your bikini. If you’re going out out, it’s the ideal piece to dress up with some glitzy gladiators, wedges or some killer statement jewellery.
This Tiago Playsuit in Blue Tropical is what tropical dreams are made of! The gorgeous cobalt blue colour goes perfectly with a tan, plus the cinched-in waist keeps it fitted and flattering on any body shape. Throw it on for breakfast by the pool, or add some wedges and a beautifully beaded bag like this Amita Bag for a fun night time look.
Khaki is the colour of the moment, so we’re loving this Linen Kaftan with Pom Pom Trim! Super easy to wear on your way to the beach, we just know the effortless style of this piece will have you never wanting to take it off. Plus, the breezy linen material will keep you cool, even in the midday sun. Complete the look with some sassy hoops and espadrille gladiators.
If you’re only buying one new piece for your holiday, make sure it’s this one. This Maxi Shirt Dress in Rose Print is so versatile it won’t only see you through your holiday, but it’s perfect for festivals and date nights too! Try this one out for a super sultry evening look, or even at the airport on your way home to keep you cool and comfortable.
Facebook Live Fun
After lunch it’s back to the villa for some inflatable fun on Facebook live. We filmed three live competitions by the pool, giving away a total of 31 dresses to 24 lucky winners!
Our Facebook fans voted in the comments on which of the SilkFred team to push in the pool, then won the dress the team member was holding!
The Dartboard of Dresses
Our very own model, Sasha, threw darts at the infamous Dartboard of Dresses on behalf of our lovely Facebook viewers. Whichever dress she hit, our fabulous fans won!
The Great Inflatable Race
In the final round, it was time for our SilkFred team to go head-to-head on inflatables in a race across the pool! Jenny, Ming, Megan and Sasha raced on behalf of our Facebook audience to win them each a dress.
If you haven’t seen any our Facebook live videos yet, gurl you are missing out! Make sure you ‘like’ us on Facebook and never miss out on free dresses again.
Last Day in Paradise
On our final day the team packed everything into the SilkFred wagon of dreams (a hired mini van), and headed down to Marbella’s famous Orange Square to shoot some gorgeous daytime looks.
One of our favourite looks of the final day is this Ibiza-esque Kiera Burn Out Dress in beautiful white lace; adding some statement mirrored sunglasses and a glitzy sidebag like this embellished Palmera Bag is really all you need to complete the look.
To end our little getaway we celebrated by going ‘out out’ in Marbella town, where head stylist, Megan, attempted to blow out a sparkler on her birthday cake! One too many proseccos maybe…
If you didn’t get a group outfit pic did you really go out out?
