Destination Staples: Piece Together Your Packing List

Eliza Scarborough   |   05 - 06 - 2017

We have covered how to pack the perfect suitcase, but now it is about considering what fashion staples are destination appropriate to pack in it.


Pack a mix of feminine separates, with a touch of denim, including must-have linen and cotton to keep you cool. The statement shirt is your go-to essential, it will elevate a pair of denim shorts for day, and equally complement heels for evening.

Safari Escape

A trip to the outback screams for a co-ordinating wardrobe of neutrals and raffia. However, rather than pairing with khaki, coral is the perfect accent shade to add a bit of colour to your ensemble, and it will complement tanned skin too.

Tropical Getaway

Bring a suitcase filled with day-to-night casual dresses, and use your accessories to add colour and fun to your capsule wardrobe. When it comes to footwear, if there is one pair to pack, then an espadrille wedge will take you from days on the beach, to dressed up sundowners.

City Break

Give some thought to the city you are travelling to, and pack an exciting mix of co-ordinating staples in a monochrome colour palette. A lightweight trench is chic and always appropriate, no matter where your day takes you, and if you are planning on sightseeing, you just need a small hands-free bag to carry all your essentials.
