The Holiday Checklist

A holiday in the sunshine is the perfect opportunity to pack away your formal work wardrobe and pull out the summer casual wear. If it’s been so long that you’ve forgotten how to dress for the occasion, don’t worry; we’ve put together some outfit inspiration to ensure you look good and feel great wherever you’re going this summer.

The most obvious place to visit on your summer holiday is the pool. No matter your age, everyone loves a dip in the water to cool down. An absolute essential is the swim short. Light and fast drying, a pair of swim shorts will fit into your suitcase very easily and can be worn a number of times during your break.

It’s always a good idea to pack a pair of denim shorts too. You can pair denim with a number of items whether it be a simple t-shirt, a vest for those scorching days or with a casual shirt at night. Opt for a lighter denim with a high cotton content, the last thing you want to be wearing is a heavy fabric!

Linen is the perfect fabric for your summer get away. Light, breathable and comfortable, a linen shirt can be worn with a pair of shorts during the day or can be dressed up with a pair of chinos for evening meals on the beach front. Casual shirts are also a brilliant option. To look the part, pack a selection of plains, stripes and checks… after all, you are on your holidays!

To round off your holiday wardrobe, make sure you pack a handful of basic, lightweight T-shirts. A simple tee is an effortless way to cover up when you’re about to hit the beach or your body just needs a bit of shade during the midday sun. You can go for a block colour or be more adventurous and select a printed version. A polo-shirt is a great choice for the evening. It looks smart enough to wear to your favourite seafood restaurant yet feels comfortable enough to wear in the evening heat.

When going on holiday, it’s important to have fun with your wardrobe. After all, when do you get the chance to be this adventurous with your style? Don’t be afraid to add new colors and prints into your outfit.
