Pack for the perfect holiday

Style Advice

Our designers’ recommendations for a stylish break

It’s that time of year when lots of us are flicking through travel brochures or eagerly looking forward to a long-planned holiday. Once you’ve decided on whether it’s to be Cornwall, Crete or California this year, the next thing that you’ll be pondering is what to pack.

We recommend focusing on items that can be mixed and matched. That way you’ll get maximum outfit choices for minimum space in your suitcase. Think about colour-coordinated tops and skirts, lightweight trousers and swimwear that let you ring the changes. For example, a cheerful tankini is lovely for swimming or lazing by the pool. Teamed with elegant palazzo pants the same tankini top gives you a relaxed look for cocktail hour.

Another thing to consider – especially for warmer climates – is fabric. Natural fibres, such as cotton, allow your skin to breathe and stay cool. But have you ever thought about silk in the same way? Like cotton, it’s a natural fibre, so it helps your skin stay cool as temperatures rise. So don’t just keep your luxurious silk tops for special occasions. Ultra-lightweight, silk takes up no room in your bag and is perfect for sunny days and balmy evenings.

While we’re talking of balmy evenings… most of us would agree that while a warm day is delightful, high temperatures at night are not so much fun. The best way to stay cool and get a good night’s sleep on holiday is to pack pure cotton nightwear. Wonderfully light and very soft, our pure cotton nightwear is cut for comfort and breathability. After a hot day’s sight-seeing or a fun evening at a local restaurant, cool your skin with a lukewarm shower and slip on a lightweight cotton nightie or light-as-air cotton wrap. Just right for winding down and drifting off.

Last, but certainly not least, one of our favourite choices for holiday time is our smart uncrushable suit. A real customer favourite, it’s just right for long plane, bus or train journeys, or even busy days out in a far-flung city. Flattering and comfortable, it simply won’t crease. So wear it to travel, or put it in your suitcase – you’ll look fresh and polished from dawn till dusk.
