Holiday? Booked. Sunscreen? Sorted. Luggage? Ummmm…not packed yet! It's always packing the right holiday wardrobe that has us twisting around in our sundress. Fear not, we've got the essential holiday packing guide for you with everything from great airport outfits, beach essentials to glam looks for balmy evenings. Simply follow this guide and you’ll find packing is as simple as sipping Margaritas in the sunshine...


The Flight Fashionista

There she goes, swishing her way through the departure lounge. If you’ve always wanted to be one of those in-flight fashionistas, just remember to marry up comfort with style. Wear lightweight layers ready for the British chill and they’ll be easy to slip off when you’re ready to soak up those rays. Oh and don’t forget those sunnies – you’ll need them on the other (sunnier) side.


The Beach Babe

It’s all about the sun, the sand and basic beach essentials. You know the drill…bikini, sunnies, flip flops, sunscreen and a good book for the sun lounger. Whether you’re a swimsuit girl or a bikini babe, opt for black if you’re looking for something to flatter all skin tones. And if you’re in the mood for a burst of colour, go all out bold and beautiful.


The Sunset Stylista

Whether it’s exotic cocktails as you watch the sun go down or sampling the local cuisine at a beachside restaurant, you can’t go wrong with a white ensemble worn with a few stand-out accessories. Add some metallic wedges to keep you upright in the sand (and particularly useful after a few cocktails) as well as a printed scarf for the late night chill. And voilà, you’ve perfected the laid-back evening look.


The Holiday Man

Now that you’re all sorted style-wise, make sure your man doesn’t fall behind in the style stakes. Snap up some bright swim shorts but if he’s a more subdued sort of chap, go for a dark blue or black. If he’s the adventurous type: printed, striped and block colour shorts are all so on trend. Happy holidays!
