Us Brits love a good holiday. There’s nothing more exciting than the prospect of uninterrupted, sand-between-our-toes time. Ahhh. But rewind a couple of steps, and you’ve got the packing list to contend with. This summer, there’s a few REALLY trend-led staples that you simply can’t leave UK soil without.
Sunnies (preferably statement tortoiseshell) and a sun hat (the floppy straw kind) are must-pack items. Aside from the obvious (protecting us against the sun’s harmful rays), they look blooming marvellous, and take up no space whatsoever! Just remember to stuff your underwear in the hat so it keeps its shape…
A few things to wear in the evening are also necessary. You might just be popping down to the restaurant for dinner, but there’s nothing like dressing up when you’re feeling suitably bronzed! A simple shift dress teamed with some sandals is ideal. Just add a statement necklace and spritz of perfume and you’re good to go!
Whether your holiday itinerary includes a day trip or some exploring, it’s always worth taking a floaty top and shorts! These can double up as beach basics, but with a bit of jewellery and a cross-body bag, you’ve got daytime dressing sorted.
No holiday packing list is EVER complete without swimwear. Depending on how long you’re away, you might want to take a few styles – there’s nothing worse than awkwardly stepping into a still-wet-from-the-day-before swimsuit. Bleugh! We’re really into zesty colours, and they look fab layered under sheer fabrics.
