Packing for a holiday can be tricky. So often we end up taking far too many clothes that we never wear and with misfit outfits.
But this summer, we've got your holiday wardrobe covered. Whether you’ll be sunning yourself in sunny Santorini or taking in the beautiful sights of Barcelona - take note of our holiday suitcase suggestions and you'll go away with a week of outfits that work for every holiday occasion.
Arrive in style
Whether you get there by plane, train or car, make the journey as comfortable as possible with the right travelwear. Denim can be hot and clingy, while trackies often leave you feeling a bit underdressed for the excitement that awaits – a jumpsuit is the perfect solution.
Choose a lightweight cotton option for added wearability (like the one shown in the picture above, which you can buy in store) or opt for a three-quarter length jumpsuit which is nice and airy on a hot summer's day. This wash-out nautical striped print comes with wide legs too which oozes chic and is perfect for keeping you cool and looking great! Or try wearing a gorgeous floral print playsuit which you could layer up with a denim jacket or a cardi as it always gets nippy on the plane.
Throw on this embroidered cold shoulder top with a pair of cropped white jeans, some espadrille-type wedges and a big enough bag to fit all your electronics, a bottle of water and a spare pair of flip flops in. You'll be ready to cruise around the cobbled streets of Florence in no time.
Beach to bar
Sun, sea and jugs of sangria - you can't beat a beach holiday!
Whether you prefer getting an all over tan in a bikini or feel comfier basking in the sun in a swimming cossie, make sure you pack some swimwear which you feel confident in. Whilst sunbathing, stay protected and look great with this gorgeous sequin floppy hat. Then, when it comes to heading from the beach to bar, cover-up in some denim shorts - which are a wardrobe staple- pair it with an embellished top and some chunky wedges. This outfit will make you stand out for all the right reasons.
Sunset drinks then a stroll to the restaurant – the perfect end to the day.
Lightweight, flowing dresses will up the glam factor and keep you cool at the same time just like this colourful multi print dress. Complete with a high-cut neckline and finished with frills, all eyes will be on you. Printed maxis say relaxed chic, while short, poppy brights, like this bright pink ensemble, will carry you on through as you explore the local nightlife…
