What to Pack for a Holiday in the Sun
Escaping somewhere warm? Here’s a guide to what to bring so you can keep cool and stylish in a hotter climate. Treat yourself to a few new pieces for your holiday and add to the anticipation of a fun and carefree time. Let packing get you in the mood for pleasure.
You’ll need at least 4 sets of underwear and tops but why not take enough for a week so you don’t have to worry about laundry? Luvvey’s Taryn tunic linen top is ideal and comes in 5 colours. It has a handy pocket for your sunglasses. Linen is the perfect fabric for warm climates as it keeps a crisp fresh appearance. It's highly breathable, helping you to stay cooler for longer. The Opal tunic gives more coverage as it’s knee length with elbow length sleeves. Its wild roses exude summer vibes.
A long-sleeved blouse is a great addition to your suitcase for cooler evenings or to protect you from the sun in the middle of the day.
Two pairs of shorts are a good idea with long trousers for going out in the evening.
It's important to dress appropriately in certain cultures especially away from the beach. Cover up to visit a mosque in Istanbul or the souk in Morocco. Shorts are frowned upon in Muslim Malaysia so should be at least knee length.
Sundresses are so comfortable and make you feel feminine and relaxed. Our Paige dress has layers to add a sense of fun and frivolity. Talia’s balloon shape is airy so it’s cooler and makes beach changing easy.
You will want several smart or dressy outfits for the evening: something elegant like Brianne with its unique front knot. This is a longer dress that feels a little more formal. Nicky is a flared floral tunic with a cowl neck that looks sophisticated. Cynthia is a super light top with a palm print and interesting lace detailing at the bottom and side splits. Hang them in the bathroom while you shower so the creases fall out of the linen.
Take at least two swimsuits so you don’t have to put a damp one on. Different strap lines will help you get a more even tan.
Let your feet breathe and show off a pedicure by choosing from our fun range of sandals. Lucy are perfect for poolside with amazing applique floral detail. Nelle are comfortable for sightseeing with two buckled straps. For the evening sparkly multiculoured Halo are comfortable yet glamorous and multi-coloured Pixie sliders are vibrant.The crossover gives a little more support.
A light sweater is useful if it gets cooler in the evening or the air conditioning is set too low. Sunglasses and a wide brimmed hat will protect you from the sun.Tropical destinations have heavy showers so a rain jacket and small umbrella are useful.
Wear a few items of jewelry on the journey and that’s really all there is to it! You have everything you need to have a fabulous time. Bon voyage!
