The Packing List | How to Create the Perfect Summer Holiday Wardrobe
Keep it Simple
Versatility is key when packing light. Stick to clever pieces that will take you from beach to bar with a simple accessories switch. Or find different ways of wearing the same piece – like a full-length skirt that can also be worn as a strapless dress. After all, as we like to say, “It’s not what you wear, but how you wear it”.
The Chic Cover-Up
A chic cover up is a pool and beachside necessity. We like to roll up the sleeves and wear our High Tide linen shirt unbuttoned over bathers or tied at the front.
The Day-to-Night Dress
A beautiful dress that you can slip on for sunny days or balmy nights is a foundation piece of any summer holiday wardrobe. Look for sweeping hemlines, fluid silhouettes and breathable, natural fabrics.
A One-and-Done Piece
The Statement Top
Whether you’re headed to the beach or planning an impromptu city break, pack a statement top that can be worn with everything from shorts and linen pants to your favourite skirt.
The Perfect Pants
Wide-leg linen pants are a welcome addition to any suitcase. Wear with a simple white tank or layer over your swimsuit and finish with layered jewellery for effortless holiday style.
The Summer Weight Layer
Sure, you can throw on a light summer layer when the sun goes down, but we also like to tie it around our waist to break up block colour or to make a dress feel more casual.
Chic accessories will maximize a lightly packed suitcase and are an effortless way to put a new spin on your summer staples. Tie your hair up with a silk scarf or loop it around your waist and wear as a belt. Finish a simple outfit with statement bronze jewellery. And always remember to have fun with your accessories and keep your look playful!
