Editor's pick: The holiday edit

 

Planning your summer getaway? For holiday style that takes you from beach to bar and back again, here's our Editor's pick of the key pieces you need for your suitcase

Swimwear from Panache, a selection is available in-store and online here

When it comes to packing your holiday wardrobe, there are three rules to stick to if you want to look stylish, create a capsule wardrobe that will take you from the beach to the bar, and will enable you to travel light.

Only pack clothes and accessories in a maximum of three colours, plus a neutral (black, white, metallic silver or gold). Blue and white with a pop of yellow, red and pink with a little white, or black and white with a flash of fuchsia, are examples of colour combinations that will enable your tops, bottoms, swimwear, dresses, shoes and accessories to be worn with each other. This means that you can create numerous outfits for different occasions during your summer stay, from just a few items in your suitcase.

Don’t go overboard when it comes to shoes. All you need is a maximum of three pairs – flip flops, a pump or trainer and a pair of wedge heels. Depending on what you plan to do on holiday and where you go, a pair of flip flops maybe all you will need, especially if you get some in a patent black or metallic so that they see you through day to night. The same for accessories, all you need is your suitcase, a beach bag and a quirky bag for the evening, a hat, sunglasses and a scarf that can also be worn as a cover-up, headwear and belt.
