Your Shopping Bag is Empty
READY FOR TAKE OFF
Packing for a trip (especially if you’re out of practice) can be an overwhelming task to begin. Here, we’ve compiled the ultimate holiday checklist of what you need to have in your case.
Whether you’re someone who makes their own list and checks it twice or someone who prefers to throw everything in a bag last minute and hope for the best, we’ve all committed travel's cardinal sin: overpacking. While in theory, overpacking seems like a smart idea to be sure you’re ready for every situation - the ensuing shoulder ache that comes from lugging around a supremely stuffed suitcase or getting hit with a costly oversized charge at the airport is enough to make you think otherwise.
But with a summer full of travel potential ahead, it’s time to master the art of packing once and for all. The secret to packing like a pro is all in the outfit preparation. To help, we mapped out 3 looks that will take you from the check-in desk to happy hour to the beach and back home again without so much as a rolling suitcase. Keep scrolling to get the full breakdown of looks with tips that will transform how you pack.
Comfort is priority number one when travelling given that you could very well be sitting for 10, maybe even 20 hours, depending on where you're heading. The key to looking cool but feeling comfortable is matching loungewear. This ‘No Problemo’ set from Aries brings the holiday feel with a pop of colour and a carefree message. Pair with crisp white trainers for a polished look.
BEACH TO BAR
The best beachwear is now no longer just for the water. Take these Embroidered Logo Swim Shorts from GANT, the sport cut gives a polished feel so that they can be worn to any bar. Pair with a short-sleeved striped shirt like this pastel option from Polo Ralph Lauren (worn open at the beach and buttoned up at the bar) to tie the look together.
Whether dining at the hotel restaurant or a local bistro down the road, be sure you look the part with a smart summer shirt like this Angelo Linen Short-Sleeved Shirt by Frescobol Carioca. The bright colour palette and linen fabric make this a cool option for the hot summer sun. But for when the sun goes down and the chill kicks in, layer over this Cord Collar Denim Jacket from Loewe.
