The Packing List | How to Create the Perfect Summer Holiday Wardrobe

From a chic beach cover-up to an effortless sundowner dress, discover our styling tips and packing list of key pieces for 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

Infinitely versatile, a jumpsuit or playsuit is a one-piece wonder that requires minimal styling effort yet always looks polished.


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.


Considered Accessories

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!
