Worldwide Wardrobe Competition | Travelsupermarket

A few weeks ago I came across Travel Supermarket's Worldwide Wardrobe Competition where the aim is to put together five outfits for five different destinations, all under £200 each. I love the idea of this competition and it's definitely something I have enjoyed putting together! And the most exciting part about this competition; a winner will be chosen from each destination category to win a holiday and £200 to spend on their chosen look! How amazing is that?! 

The destinations are: Shopping in London, Cocktails in New York, Sightseeing in Paris, Clubbing in Ibiza and Partying at a Full Moon Party in Tailand. 

Now of course you can choose whether you want to put together all five looks or you can simply choose one or two; the only rules are that each look has to be under £200 and you must nominate five other bloggers who you think would love to take part. Full details of the competition can be found here

Shopping in London is something I'm most familiar, even though I've only been a few times, I love shopping and I live in the UK so its basically just what I wear on an everyday basis! I chose a pair of black skinny Leigh jeans from Topshop as these happen to be personal favourites of mine but also, black goes with everything so they are perfect. I paired the jeans with a pair of cut out boots; I think ankle boots are essential, they are super comfy and perfect for walking round shopping. 

I think by now you may have noticed that my London look is completely monochrome and that's because I adore this trend and tend to wear black almost everyday anyway so it's perfect for London weather and its on trend! To finish off the look I chose a sheer shirt because I loved the two different patterns as well as the collar detailing, paired with a leather jacket which should be a wardrobe staple for everyone and a Zara shopper that is big enough to carry your essentials but not too huge that it'll weigh you down while shopping!

Cocktails in New York instantly reminds me of Sex and the City, the glamour, the simplicity and the big apple. For my New York look I chose a simple black skater-style dress which I would pair with these black flatforms from Topshop. I think being in New York you need some sort of a heeled shoe but for me personally, I'm tall enough, so opting for a flatform is the perfect alternative and these have that added detail of the ankle strap which is a nice touch. 

As the dress is super simple I thought pairing it with this bold zebra print Zara coat would be perfect - I love that it has no collar! - and then to add a pop of colour (cannot believe I just used that phrase) I went with a neon clutch that is perfect for New York as it's a real stand-out piece. Finally, I would keep jewellery to a minimum with just this dainty,  silver spiked bracelet.

When I think of Sightseeing in Paris I immediately think of trends and super-stylish people but with sightseeing, comfort is a must! For this outfit I used the new Topshop 'mom' jeans as a basis which with the turned up ankles would look almost preppy paired with a pair of loafers, very Parisian in my opinion! For the top I went with an orange spotty shirt and a basic black jumper to break up and take away slightly from the overpowering colour of the shirt. 

I chose a matching orange bag and this one from Boohoo is great, it's big enough to carry a camera, a drink and the essentials whilst not being too big that it'll be uncomfortable to carry in the day. To finish off the look I found these round black sunglasses, which I actually own myself and love so much, they really just finish off a look. 

Partying at a Full Moon Party in Thailand is something I've never done and a full moon party is something I've actually never heard of either. That being said, I believe that it's just an all-night beach party on a full moon (surprisingly!) so with that in mind I opted for a swimsuit in a really loud print because who wouldn't love a green leaf swimsuit?! I paired this with a pair of cream shorts with lace detailing on the front and then a pair of green Steve Madden sandal which for £35 are a bargain in my opinion.

I recently discovered Crown and Glory and saw that they had this cream coloured floral headband which went perfectly with the beach, exotic flower theme my look seems to have. Finally I chose a simple gold band cuff to tie in with the gold detailing from the sandals and also to keep most of the attention on the swimsuit.

For Clubbing in Ibiza the main piece that I'd choose would be a brightly coloured skirt because when on holiday, I love to wear bright colours that wouldn't usually be something I could wear in the UK normally. I chose this skater-style skirt from Boohoo because I love the aztec trend and the bold colours and also because it's £8; £8 for a skirt! I paired the skirt with a black fringed top and a black cross body bag. 

I personally don't wear heels and from what I've heard, heels are a no-no anyway in Ibiza, so I opted for a simple pair of black sandals and finished off the look with some silver band rings that are stackable so can create several different 'looks'. I can't quite believe this whole outfit came to less than £100, never mind £200. 

Well there we have it, my five looks for five different countries. I really enjoyed putting these together and hope they give you a few ideas of possible outfits! The five bloggers I nominate to do this challenge are:
