Packing Tips for a Holiday

We love the month of May … spring has already sprung, the sun shines (or threatens to) and summer is just a small hop away.

But the best thing about the darling month of May is … 2 bank holidays. This gives us all a perfectly blissful opportunity to grab a small bag and head off to for a long weekend.

We all know that traveling light isn’t easy, especially on a beach holiday. We’ve picked up a few top tips from stylists and fashion consultants over the years that we thought we’d share with you!

Colour code your clothes and stick to one or two colour palettes and choose items of clothing that are multi-functional. Then when you’re ready to pack just start Rollin, Rollin, Rollin … your clothes. This will  negate creasing and give you more room for the stuff you want to take.

“Say Yes” to swimwear is another top tip – bikinis, swimsuits, tankini tops and singlets are tiny. They take up very little room and can look as chic off the beach when worn under shorts or trousers.

A Kaftan or cover up is another must pack item for your short trip away. The Baku Heatwave has beautiful lace sleeve detail that wouldn’t look out of place in a   restaurant or bar.

Dresses are hard-working and add a bit of “holiday glamour”! Pack one dress and wear it in the day with flats, flip flops and shades and by night with heels and lipstick.

Check out the very versatile Seafolly Bandit Beach Dress (above) with an optional under slip which transforms it from cool beach cover-up by day to sophisticated party dress in the evening

Sarongs add very little to your load and aren’t just beach cover ups – double up as a scarf  to brighten a plain top or wrap over shoulders for the cooler evenings.
