You’ve booked the tickets, we’ve planned the outfits – this is your essential vacation packing guide, from a weekend in the countryside to a luxurious cruise
A weekend out of town, perhaps in the Hamptons, calls for a careful balance of pretty and practical: think versatile trench coat, relaxed-fit jeans and flat leather sandals. A floral-print sun dress is the perfect complement to a whimsical historic setting, while a polka-dot tee and pastel-pink midi skirt pairing is an easy option fit for dining al fresco.
Whether you’re jetting off to a far-flung paradise or hitting the local sands, less is more when it comes to packing for a stress-free break. A multi-tasking cotton cover-up will do the trick for all your al fresco lunches, while linen shorts worn with a broderie Anglaise tank top is an effortlessly chic look for sundowners.
From London to Paris, there’s no better way to brush up your street-style credentials than checking out a new urban scene. A striped top worn with wide-leg jeans and sleek sneakers is a wise choice for sightseeing, while an embroidered Bardot dress is the perfect companion for people-watching from a sidewalk café.
Capture the magic of The Golden Age of Travel with elegant separates that wouldn’t be out of place in the wardrobe of a silver-screen starlet. Satin is your friend here, as are metallic heels and shoulder-grazing diamante earrings. Dial up the drama after dark in a sweeping lamé dress, paired with a sophisticated up-do.
