It’s no wonder that these days, all we’re after is a compact holiday wardrobe. So often we opt for a quick getaway and want to have just enough to stuff our carry-on suitcase with. Take a look at our 10-piece collection, which encompasses the key items you need for some blissful time away this summer.
Let’s start with the all-important bikini. We love the Resort Mix & Match Bandeau Bikini Top and Resort Mix & Match High Waist Briefs – these pieces come in three different prints, which you can either coordinate or mix and match together. For a cover-up, how about the Little Mistress Embellished Cover Up? This design is seriously pretty, and it can also be used as a kimono over dresses when you’re doing non-beach related activities.
A casual maxi dress is the ideal daytime attire for your holiday. We adore our South Racer Back Maxi Dress – it’s straight to the point with its on-trend stripe pattern, and it’s easy to style again and again. For eveningwear, co-ords (or coordinates) are the trend du jour. Our Lashes of London Floral Print Top and Lashes of London Floral Print Midi Skirt are stunning and best worn together if you want a stylish ensemble. The best thing about a coordinated outfit is that the individual items can then be paired with entirely different items for a new look – how about wearing the top with a pair of casual Love Label Malibu Cheeky Denim Shorts?
To complete your capsule wardrobe, you’ll need shoes and accessories. Choose a pair of sandals that’ll go with everything, from daytime walks to a lovely dinner out – our Shoe Box Victoria Leather T-Bar Sandals will work perfectly. If you’re headed out in that sunshine, you’ll also be needing sunglasses. The Marc by Marc Jacobs Sunglasses are super lovely and will make you stand out from the crowd.
Finally, a beach bag is an essential, but make it work in numerous ways by using it as your hand luggage bag too. Our Duffle Straw Beach Bag screams ‘summer’ and is ideal in both of these ways.
