With the onset of the travel season, it’s time to pre-plan your vacation wardrobe to avoid any last minute packing woes. Whether you are going for a city break, a beach getaway or heading to the mountains, brings you the essentials you need to ensure you are looking the best no matter what.

Clothes: While jeans are a fail-proof fashion solution, recommends swapping your usual blues with a bright coloured pair to help you carry a look from day to night. We love J Brand’s red skinny jeans. Alternatively, if you are headed to a beach, swap your denim shorts with a printed pair like these silk ones from Zara; they are great for lounging around and for night outs.

For your city vacay, a classic trench won’t let you down, no matter what the weather. For beach vacays, pack a kaftan that doubles up as a sundress for a fuss-free look, the Azores cotton blend kaftan by Milly should do the trick.

Shoes and Bags: Leave your high heels at home and opt for comfortable shoes, think ballet flats, plimsoles and wedges. We love the Sequin Sparkle wedges by Clarks in tan (the neutral shade will ensure that it goes with every outfit).

When it comes to bags, don’t carry more than two – a tote for all the essentials and a messenger bag that doubles up as clutch. loves the Neo reversible leather tote by Yves Saint Laurent for its dual quality (turn it inside out to convert it into a golden tote).

Accessories: Think non-fuss jewellery when packing for your holiday, but do remember to pack other essentials such as iPad case, fedora and cosmetics pouch. loves TUMI’s Voyageur to pack all our essentials in for this holiday season.
