Leaving on a jet plane

If all this beautiful weather has got you lusting after some well-earned rest and relaxation, you’re not alone. Summer holiday season is upon us and if you want to avoid the rush for those sun loungers you’ll need to book your place on the beach asap, but there’s one more thing you need to do as well – get that holiday wardrobe sorted!

Your holiday starts the moment you set foot on the plane, and your fashion choices are just as important here as anywhere else. You want to nail jet set style but comfort needs to be the order of the day – think soft fabrics, layers, flat shoes and a carry-on bag that’s big enough for all those essentials. Don’t forget those other holiday essentials either – the all-important swimsuits! Whether you want to go for a bikini or make a statement in an attention-grabbing one-piece you can’t go wrong, and of course, a good pair of sunnies and a kaftan will be essential components of any beach bag.

As for daytime chic? Think cool, comfortable and casual – a pair of shorts, a cross-body bag and some simple  tops will be all you need, and those flat shoes you wore on the flight will come in handy for sightseeing too. Then, when you want to go from beach to bar, it’s all about the accessories. Throw on a pair of wedges and some jewellery and you’ll instantly ramp up that maxi dress to eveningwear potential, and don’t forget the cover-up in case the chill sets in.

A few careful fashion choices will mean you’re ready for the holiday of the year, helping you nail poolside glamour and casual cool alike, and all without going over your baggage limit. So what are you waiting for? Start booking those tickets and you’ll be off on a jet plane before you know it!
