The chicest island getaway

Our favourite girls went on a dreamy island trip – dressed in the cutest swimwear and chicest summer looks.

Wenjun, Savi, Molly Chiang, Spoon Chan, Allie Chan, Veronica Li, Rachel Wong, Cherrie Liong and Kittie Yiyi – have you ever heard of a more stylish vacay crew? H&M invited the girls to Vietnamese dream destination Phu Quoc for a summery mini break. The getaway was all about seaside dinners, fun mixology classes, long walks along Emerald Bay’s golden beach – and of course, lots and lots of cute summer fashion! We asked a few of the girls to share their best styling and beauty tips for an unforgettable summer.

SAVI: ”PASSION FRUIT IS GOOD FOR YOUR SKIN!”

WHAT ARE YOUR ESSENTIALS FOR A SUNNY BEACH GETAWAY? 
”I always bring my one-piece swimsuit and denim shorts. I will sunbathe on the beach with my swimsuit, and then put my denim shorts on to explore the city.”

WHAT’S YOUR GO-TO LOOK IN WARM WEATHER? 
”I prefer to wear silk shirts, they’re comfortable and chic. Loose short-sleeve shirts are my favourites this year. Here’s a styling tip for you – leave the last two buttons open and tie a knot. Finish off the look with a pair of high-waist denim shorts or short skirt. It’s a simple summer look with focus on details and that will make your legs look longer!”

DESCRIBE THE PERFECT SUMMER GETAWAY! 
”First a nice breakfast, then walking and taking photos on the beach. In the afternoon I like to explore unique places, and dine and chat with my friends. I prefer to travel in a relaxed way instead of having a very packed schedule.”

TELL US YOUR FAVOURITE SUMMER MEMORY? 
”When I was 5 or 6 years old, I went to the beach with my sister and mother. My pair of flip flops got washed away and my sister had to carry me on her back home. I was too small to have any special feelings back then, but I’m very touched when I think of this now.”

YOUR FAVOURITE SUMMER FOOD?  
”All kinds of drinks or desserts made with passion fruit. It has a rich sour and sweet taste. It is high in nutritional value and is good for the skin, too.”

DESCRIBE THE PERFECT SWIMSUIT OR BIKINI?
”A one-piece bathing suit is simple and makes for a sporty beach look.”

YOUR BEST SUMMER BEAUTY TRICK?
”Makeup meltdown and skin issues are the biggest challenges during summer. Sun block is very important! Powdered foundation with SPF and tissue paper are my summer essentials.  Clean your face every couple of hours with the tissue paper and apply the SPF-powdered foundation for a quick fix.”

WENJUN: ”I LIKE SIMPLE DRESSES THAT ARE EASY TO STYLE”

WHAT ARE YOUR ESSENTIALS FOR A SUNNY BEACH GETAWAY? 
”Sunglasses, bikinis – and a suitcase big enough to fit my entire wardrobe, haha! Dresses, bags, shoes, sportswear, accessories, makeup… and so on!”

WHAT’S YOUR GO-TO LOOK IN WARM WEATHER? 
”I like simple and clean dresses that are easy to style.”

WHAT’S YOUR PERFECT SUMMER GETAWAY?
”The beach, sunshine, music, movies and a lover.”

TELL US YOUR FAVOURITE SUMMER MEMORY!
”Two years ago, I went for a road trip around Rome to discover natural waterfalls and to gaze at the beautiful starry sky. It was a totally different experience in comparison to the hustle bustle of city life. And of course, H&M’s summer vacay at JW Marriott Phu Quoc is also one of my favourite summer memories!”

WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE SUMMER FOOD?
”Ice cream.”

DESCRIBE THE PERFECT BIKINI OR BATHING SUIT?”
”I like two-piece bikinis, perfect for sunbathing.”

YOUR BEST SUMMER BEAUTY TRICK? 
”Moisturising is very important. Don’t use too much foundation, and choose lipstick colours that match your skin tone.”

WHAT ARE YOUR ESSENTIALS FOR A SUNNY BEACH GETAWAY?
