Linen Dresses & More: Meet Your Holiday Wardrobe Essentials

Whether you’re globe-trotting or on a seaside staycation, ease is key! Meet the pieces that will keep you looking stylish and feeling cool from sunrise to sunset.

Packing for your next destination? Whether you’re a clothes roller, folder or more of a dash-and-go packer, here’s our guide to pieces that are easy to pack – and wear! So you can sit back, relax and have a stress-free, super-chic trip!

Linen Lovers

Stone Stripe Print Button Midi Dress £35

Nothing screams summer more than linen – it’s easy-breezy wearability and lightweight nature makes it a great suitcase staple. Worried about creasing? Fear-no-more. Keep the iron away to achieve an effortless look that is perfect in an off-duty, holiday environment. We think a little creasing gives linen its character and the fabric will also keep you cool when basking in the summer sun – linen lovers, form an orderly queue…

Enhance your summer glow with a linen dress in a pure white hue. Subtle metallic accents make it great for the evening, but workable for daytime chic. Pair with flat sandals for pure comfort and a denim jacket to protect against a beach breeze. If you need something a little more practical than white, opt for a neutral tone and add white accessories to keep your look fresh and fun.

 

The Utility Twist

Ivory Utility Shirt Dress £35

The utility trend is one that is here to stay. When you think of a summer staple, you may edge towards a floral dress, but we love switching things up now and again – beat the heat in lightweight neutrals, add your stamp with utilitarian detail and feel all-day comfort with practical silhouettes. We love jumpsuits and button dresses that you can throw on without having to think much further than the accessories you are going to pair them with – which makes them the perfect packing piece.

 

Playful Prints

Leaf Print Playsuit £32 Coming Soon

It’s no secret – we love a print. Florals come alive in the summer sun, but if the vibrancy of some floral patterns leaves you a little hesitant to take the plunge, then ease yourself into it with this khaki playsuit featuring a leafy, neutral print. Playsuits are a versatile piece and a must in any holiday wardrobe – dress up with barely-there heels or keep it casual with strappy sandals, then throw on a cross-body bag and you’re ready for a pina colada…

 

Lightweight Accessories

Stone Short Sleeve Boiler Suit £40, Black Bobble Clutch Bag £16,

When it comes to packing for a holiday, the accessories can sneakily add on a few kgs during check-in. More often than not we get carried away with packing bags and shoes that go with our evening and daytime ensembles, but we prefer ones that can take us from beach to bar as it saves a little room in our weekend carry-ons. Woven bags come around each season and it’s for good reason – they’re the perfect ensemble for summer outfits due to their natural colour and lightweight look and feel. Not just a beach bag, they can take you into daytime activities and add a relaxed edge to an evening holiday look.
