Which travel tribe are you?
Heading off on holiday? No matter the destination, we have all the essentials covered. Whether you're a yoga bunny in search of a tranquil spot for your perfected Cobra Pose, or a sun-seeker (with inflatable swan in tow, naturally) looking to make a stylish splash at a pool party - we've got what to pack, for where.
When it comes to packing for a short city break, versatile pieces are key – think ‘capsule wardrobe’. Shop for essentials that can be mixed and matched, re-worn and re-purposed. A comfortable cotton shirt dress can be teamed with sneakers by day, or with stilettos by night. And don’t forget to invest in a denim jacket – the ultimate must-have for any stylish globetrotter. A backpack in a versatile hue doubles up as a carry-on and carry-all, and cropped jeans are always a must.
Nothing screams beach vacay like bold brights and statement accessories. Whether you’re keeping it local or heading for a sojourn in the Maldives, an eye-catching pair of slides and a tropical swimsuit are a must. Next up? A cotton dress. Go for an off-shoulder style to show off your tan and one that’s pretty enough to be worn from noon ‘til night. Don’t forget to pack a tote bag that’s big enough to fit all of the essentials for a relaxing day on the sand.
When you’re heading for the party isles, go glam or go home. Live it up in sequins, sparkle and statement accessories. Shop for ultra-glam dresses, unique jewellery and show-stopping swimwear that doubles-up for after dark to create a capsule collection, that will see you into the small hours.
Whether you’ve booked yourself a yoga retreat, or heading on an action-packed camping trip, kit yourself out with all the essentials. Look for cool and comfortable T-shirts, leggings that look as good as they feel (we like to go for statement-making prints), and a sporty swimsuit. The ultimate must-pack? A great pair of sneakers to pound the pavement, wherever you travel.
