When it comes to packing for your holiday, there are a few suitcase essentials that we just simply can’t set off without! Today, we’re giving you a guide of our must-pack staples and how you can integrate them into your summer holiday wardrobe this year...

A Flattering Swim Dress

The swimdress shape may have more benefits than any other swimsuit you’ve owned before! If you’ve haven’t considered a swimdress previously, now might be the time to start. They’re the perfect design if you’re thigh-conscious, as the skirt can help to conceal your upper leg, allowing you to feel more comfortable whilst on holiday… And who doesn’t want that! With a pretty dark blue print inspired by the Indian Ocean, this swimsuit will look fabulous strolling along the blue sea. From beach to bar, just throw on a kaftan or dress for a casually stylish resort look.

A Beach to Bar Dress

Every holiday wardrobe needs a glamorous but comfortable throw-on dress. Something that can easily be taken on and off without difficulty and won’t leave you feeling too hot in the sun. This light and airy beach dress is the perfect poolside cover up. Simply throw it on before lunch time, and easily slide it off afterwards when you’re ready for a dip in the pool! Easily team this dress with sandals for your morning walk to the beach, or add accessories such as a floppy hat and bangles for a glamorous resort look.

The Vest & Shorts Combo

Simple vests and patterned shorts are essential to any summer travels! When shopping for holiday clothes we want something loose, comfortable and lightweight but without having to compromise on style. With a pretty lace trim and in a soft crinkle woven fabric, this classic Lace Trim Cami is a stylish but simple holiday must-have! Easy to wear, with swimwear, shorts, trousers or a skirt, plus it’s available in four different colour options. And don’t forget shorts! These easy to wear Printed Shorts are available in red or navy, meaning you don’t even have to think about styling them, simply mix and match with our variety of different coloured cami’s for a bright and colourful daytime outfit.

A Tummy Control Swimsuit

Paint the town red in this stylish bamboo print mock tankini. A mock tankini has all the benefits of a swimsuit, whilst incorporating the ruching detail and functional side ties of a tankini to create a figure flattering effect. The last thing you want is a suit with thin straps that will dig into your back and make any flesh folds look more pronounced, so reach for a halter-neck design that will sit comfortably on your collarbones. Designed with a high back to smooth any lumps and bumps, this mock tankini also has detachable straps, providing the option to go strapless – perfect for avoiding those dreaded tan lines! This style also features hidden tummy control panels and moulded cups for support and comfort.

The Comfortable Trousers

Make a statement whilst feeling comfortable and relaxed like never before! Your packing list needs to be straight forward but versatile, and that’s exactly why having a pair of statement trousers in your suitcase is essential. In a delicate oriental print, these tapered leg trousers feature an elasticated waistband for a comfortable and flattering fit, but also making them perfect for quickly taking on and off by the pool. If you’re more leg-conscious than arm-conscious, throwing on a pair of trousers over your swimsuit may be more beneficial to you than a kaftan. Easily style them with our turquoise Underwired Swimsuit for a fabulous vacation outfit.

The Day to Evening Dress

Everyone does their holidays a little differently. Do you dress up on an evening? Or do you keep things casual throughout? Either way, it’s ideal to have options that are suitable for both so you’re prepared for any occasion! In a delicate bamboo print, this soft jersey dress can be easily dressed up or down for a formal evening look or a casual chic daytime outfit. Simply pair with sandals in the morning, then swap your sandals for low wedge heels and jewellery when the evening arrives.

The Accessories

Whether you’re jetting off to the Caribbean or the Canaries, accessories are always required! Our Double Strap Sandals are extremely comfortable and very much on-trend. Set on a comfortable sole unit and featuring adjustable straps, this sandal combines comfort and style with the added feature of a leather insole. Perfect to wear whilst on holiday but also throughout summer at home in the UK! A holiday wardrobe isn’t complete without a reliable beach bag. Our Mesh Beach Bag is roomy and practical and comes with a matching purse so you can fit in all of your essentials!
