Our tip tips for packing with style are:
Think about the kind of activities and places you'll be going to and make sure you pack accordingly. Heading to the beach? Remember to pack bathers, gorgeous kaftans, easy-to-wear women's tops and shift dresses. Planning a country get away? Think lightweight layers, denim and basic tees. Heading to a city and planning on walking a lot? Try comfortable pants and flats.
Pack Versatile Pieces
With limited room in your suitcase, think of styles that can transition from the beach to a dinner date or daywear that can be dressed up for a nighttime event. Try maxi dresses as your go-to spring summer style and team with flats for day and heels with statement jewellery for night. Other versatile styles include midi skirts, printed camis and luxe printed pants.
Key fashion styles to pack include:
Plenty of basics
Cotton and stretch basics are great way to add versatility into your style without having to worry about ironing. Great for laying, try dresses, midi skirts or tanks which will take you from morning walks, beach, coffee date to bar.
Women's maxi dresses
A summer essential! A huge current fashion trend for spring summer 2014, is the women's maxi dresses in feminine prints, botanical styles and more which are perfect for mixing up our summer styling with ease.
No better way to inject colour into your wardrobe on your vacation than by rocking printed pants! Mix with your basics and add sandals for day and wedges for night.
A feminine cami or tank
Think lace, pastel colours or gorgeous prints. A feminine cami is your go-to style. It is the perfect throw on with a pair of denim cut offs or dressed up with a midi skirt.
An easy-to-wear shift dress
A must, the easy-to-wear shift dress is perfect for those days when you just want to roll out of bed and straight to the beach or a day out shopping. We love cute printed styles, or feminine pastels for an on-trend fashion forward look.
Jewellery and statement accessories
Jewellery takes up minimal room compared to added fashion pieces, so stock up on chunky necklaces, cuffs and cocktail rings. They add instant glamour to an easy-to-wear outfit and will make you look refreshed and stylish without changing your clothes! Even just by adding a statement tote, your look can go from easy-relaxed to super-stylish.
A pair of heels and flats:
Seriously as footwear goes, these are the only two pairs of shoes you need. Flats can be thongs, sandals or espadrilles and heels look gorgeous seen in ankle strap styles for a more sophisticated getaway, wedges or strappy heeled sandals for a more casual vibe.
