Must-haves for your holiday wardrobe

Holiday-time doesn’t mean it’s time to slack in style! These holiday must-haves will keep you both comfy and chic. 

Sheer essentials 

Perfect for layering under your statement pieces or as an accompaniment to your bathing suit, sheer essentials keep you cool while keeping you covered! You can’t go wrong by adding a little edge to a basic outfit with a print or patterned sheer top under a T-shirt, or simply layering a sheer kimono over a simple silhouette.  

Oversized button ups 

A classic piece that’s essential in every wardrobe, an oversized button-up shirt always comes in handy. Use it as a makeshift shacket while strolling your holiday destination, or as a coverup for when you’re lounging poolside. Opt for linen or cotton blends to keep cool while still looking sophisticated.

Sturdy tote bags 

Where else to keep your on-the-go holiday essentials than a sturdy statement tote? A tote will have ample space for all your holiday buys, sunscreen, change of clothes and any grab-and-go items for those impromptu trips. The best totes are hardwearing while still being lightweight. Opt for leather, cotton canvas or a synthetic material that’s flexible and weather resistant.  

Off-the-shoulder maxi dresses 

Sun’s out, shoulders out! Keep things casual yet put-together with an off-the-shoulder maxi dress perfect for quick café runs or romantic dinners. Aim for loose-fit styles instead of bodycon to keep things breathable under the blaring sun. 

Simple slip-ons 

A good walking shoe is an often-underappreciated holiday wardrobe essential. Pack a pair of leather-strapped sandals, mules or open-toe espadrilles for those day-to-day adventure, and keep them in neutral colours like taupe, black or white, which can go with all your outfits! For some added character, or to add elegance for a night out, choose a pair with accessories or added bling.
