HOLIDAY PACKING ESSENTIALS

A holiday doesn’t require an entire wardrobe overhaul, just a few well-chosen essentials to remix with the pieces you already own.
Here’s our edit of the best holiday buys of the season, from shoulder-baring sun-tops to the dress you’ll never want to take off.

THE SPORTY BIKINI

There’s nothing like a new bikini to get you in the holiday
mood. This summer we’re championing sporty bikinis in
surf-inspired fabrications because, as well as being
on-trend, they stay in place when you hit the waves.

SHOE-IN

Three carefully chosen pairs of shoes should cover all your
sartorial bases. We suggest white trainers for the airport
and daytime exploring, a pair of neutral flat sandals or
sliders for the beach, and a suede mule to dress things up
after dark.

THE STATEMENT
CUT-OFFS

The ubiquitous denim short is a summer wardrobe
mainstay, but it can feel a little basic. Upgrade your denim
cut-offs with holographic foil metallics, boho embroidery
or all-over sequins for an instant holiday style statement.

THE LIGHTWEIGHT
SUN-DRESS

Nothing says effortlessness like a loose, utilitarian shirt
dress. Great for shielding your shoulders from the midday
sun, this neutral-toned striped dress will keep you feeling
cool and looking chic. Unbutton the last three buttons for
thigh-skimming slit to take into evening.

SEE ME ROLLIN’

Rolling versus folding – it’s a contentious subject here at
Topshop HQ. The secret? Roll softer garments and fold
stiffer ones. Et voila! One crease-free case.

P.S. Pleats don’t crease

THE ESSENTIAL
BARDOT TOP

This summer’s biggest trend? The shoulder-baring bardot.
Maximise your holiday glow with bardot tops in crisp
tailored whites, mensy stripes and soft meadow florals.
Pair with girlfriend jeans for an old school Riviera vibe, or
do the unexpected with a baseball cap and ‘90s mini skirt.

THE EVENING
ALTERNATIVE

Stuck on what to wear in the evening? Loose, relaxed
tailoring feels much easier than a dress on holiday, but still
just as polished. Throw on this art deco printed short-suit
with a pair of sleek leather sliders for pared-back beachside
elegance.

CLUED-UP CARRY ON

Make the most of your carry-on bag by making sure that everything serves a dual purpose. Our top tip? Use a beach bag instead of your usual handbag, and pack your evening clutch bag inside to moonlight as a document wallet or make-up bag.
