Move over Daisy Jones, there's a new beacon of 1970s style inspiration in town and her name is Dua Lipa. The global star has been sunning it up in Jamaica recently (jealous doesn't quite cut it), and she has the 2023 holiday wardrobe of our dreams.

Queen of the Instagram dump Dua has had us pining for warmer climes with her sun-kissed snaps.

The 27-year-old, who shares her personal travel recommendations in her lifestyle newsletter Service95, delivered a crystal clear message to fans on Thursday: winter is over and out.

The Levitating singer gave her 87.7m Instagram followers a glimpse into her luxury getaway, sharing details of her super stylish beach outfits.

We'd expect nothing less from the star who is known for her keen fashion eye – consider us utterly inspired.

Dua served up 1970s It-girl energy in an assortment of geometric skin-baring pieces. She posed in front of the most stunning seascape wearing an icy blue mini dress with flared long sleeves and a plunging neckline, layered over a classic underwired white bikini.

She also wore a neon micro bikini in a playful floral print by label Feline Swim, making the case for vibrant beachwear.

In keeping with her colourful agenda, Dua opted for a sunset-inspired ombré tie top by Andreadamo which she teamed with see-through crochet flares from the brand's SS23 collection.

Crochet and other hole-effect textures are a 1970s style classic, leading us to believe that Dua may have taken her cues from the current hit show that has caught every fashion editor's eye: Daisy Jones & The Six. From high drama fluffy cuffs to envy-inducing flares, we can’t get enough of the retro outfit extravaganza.

The star's packing list also excelled in the jewellery department. Dua was flying the flag for the Y2K-adored belly button piercing and she also wore a gold dotted belt around her waist which added some gilded bling to her ensemble.

Time to give our holiday wardrobe a Dua Lipa-inspired refresh…
