Holiday packing always begins with good intentions. Then, before you know it, mild panic has set in and you’re throwing clothes in your case that you haven’t worn since 2009. The result? A bag full of things you’ll probably never wear. Avoid the “holiday hoard”, with these five items you’ll be thankful you packed – oh, and did we mention they’re on sale, too?
1. Invest in a Turkish bath towel
Traditional hammam towels, made from flat-woven cotton (rather than heavier, space-wasting fluffier fibres) make perfect beach towels or picnic blankets, and double up as stylish shawls. We love this Corsica Stripe option, from £5.60.
3. The wear-anywhere espadrilles
Trust us on this one: leave the heels at home, unless you’re headed to Saint Tropez, or another equally glamorous location. They take up precious suitcase space and chances are your relaxed-holiday self will want to wear flats. With 30% off, these Canvas-Stripe Espadrilles are our top pick.
4. The just-in-case jacket
When we book our dream getaway we all hope for 24 hours of non-stop sunshine and cloudless blue skies. The truth is temperatures can drop drastically at night – especially by the sea. A lightweight jacket won’t take up much luggage space, especially when rolled, rather than folded, and you’ll be glad to have an easy, throw-on piece when the sun sets. Shop with 40% off.
5. The versatile day-to-night dress
On days when there’s no time to head back to the hotel between the beach and bar, a versatile dress-up, dress-down dress will be your best friend. This shirt dress with 40% off is just the ticket, leaving all the more Euros for another Aperol Spritz (or two). Saluti to that!
