The Current Mood

NOW AVAILABLE TO ROAM

GRENADA

Going to Grenada? Well do go wild with the number of tours you take – because besides beaches and waterfalls for ogling and selfies, there are rum distilleries and chocolate factories to visit.

Add them to your to-do list ahead of amazing nightly sunsets. And to your holiday fashion rental wishlist? Prints from Shrimps, Farm Rio, and Rodebjer.

MADEIRA

Should you like your sandy shores a little bit closer to home, Madeira in Portugal might be calling your name (along with everyone else’s – the island was trending online immediately after the green list announcement). Match its popularity with Onloan’s most sought-after Summer items: Ciao Lucia’s sundresses, plus printed midi dresses from Farm Rio and Baum & Pferdgarten, which will turn heads, naturally, at the natural swimming pools of Porto Moniz and the botanical gardens of Funchal.

Hottest right now? This two piece from Stine Goya’s just-dropped ‘Bed to Babylon’ collection. Take it on a ramble around Levada Ribeira de Janela, or go sky raving mad with a walk over Cabo Girao’s glass bottom bridge.

BERMUDA

After the year we’ve had, the Bermuda Triangle seems a relatively small hurdle to holidaying – so don’t let that stop you from heading to beach of all beaches: Horseshoe Bay. Onloan’s dreamy dip-dyed knit dress from Hayley Menzies will rival its best sunset, as will Maggie Marilyn’s two-toned skirt.

Know your stalactites from your stalagmites? The island’s otherworldly Crystal Caves and subterranean lakes are for you. For your to-do list: a day at Blue Hole for cliff-jumping, more cave exploring and mangroves filled with fish. The latter is free, fairly secluded and frequented by locals, who might appreciate your not-quite-Bermuda-shorts-but-close-enough denim culottes from Soeur Paris. Loan them while you can.

BARBADOS

After a year of mostly staying home, you’ll be pleased to know that as well as white sands, there are over 1800 rum shacks in Barbados, buzzing with locals. The non-human inhabitants probably live at Andromeda Botanic Gardens, which spans an entire six acres full of 500 species of rare tropical flowers, ancient trees, dramatic waterfalls, hummingbirds, butterflies and the occasional monkey.

For exploring, take AlexaChung’s  floral slip dress, or this Island-friendly two-piece from Lily & Lionel – the best fashion rentals to go catamaran-ing, snorkelling, or living it up at Orchid World by day, followed by a bit of rum-shacking by night.

IBIZA

If you’ve been before, you probably know why many make the pilgrimage back to this part of the Balearics every year – and it probably has little to do with its rock formation being the third most magnetic site in the world.

A mix of chill (in the North) and hedonism (go South), Ibiza offers more than its well-advertised nightlife, with its scenic drives, hiking trails, hidden beaches, and the best preserved seabed in the Mediterranean to examine.

Take party pieces though, to channel what’s at the heart of the isle. That’s anything from Stine Goya’s latest collection (made for this trip), to this brilliant metallic striped dress from Kitri. In fact Onloan’s got plenty of dresses that will snap well against the terracotta rooftops in Old Town, or for mooching in the Museu d’art Contemporani d’Eivissa. Onloan’s dip-in-dip-out designer rental wardrobe is also the best option for star-spotting at Pikes Hotel or spying on million pound yacht parties at the docks of STK or Lio. Dressed like the star of your Summer 2021 holiday, you might even be mistaken for a celebrity yourself…
