With Summer holidays getting closer, we’re starting to think about the holiday pieces we’ll be relying on for our getaways. Whether your plan is to lounge on an exotic beach for two weeks, get your culture fix in a European city, or explore the rugged British coastline, we’ve got the key pieces that will be your holiday heroes.
Case 1: tropical climes
Destination inspiration: Mexico, the Maldives, Mauritius, the Caribbean, Bali
What to pack: Beach escapes can be deceptively difficult to pack for. Yes, you need the perfect bikini and cover-up for daytime lounging by the pool, but you also need elegant evening looks, enough pieces to see you through local market-exploring and sleepwear light enough for those balmy nights. Take a look in our suitcase for some inspiration.
Featuring: Pom-Pom Trim Bikini Top and Briefs £35 each | Broderie Beach Cover-Up £89 | Packable Trilby Hat £45 | Brompton Boyfriend Shorts £65 | Tassel-Tie Vest Top £39 | Broderie Shift Dress £129 | Double Strap Low Wedges £85 | Cat Eye Acetate Sunglasses £69 | Flat Suede Tassel Sandals £75 | Curved-Hem Button-Back Jumper £79
Case 2: city break
Destination inspiration: Amsterdam, Stockholm, Vienna, Paris, Rome
What to pack: For those in need of a few days of museum and gallery-hopping, café-sitting and gently wandering winding streets, a very different suitcase is required. Comfy-yet-stylish shoes, layering pieces and a great lightweight jacket are essentials for unpredictable European Summer weather, while effortless, classic stripes and one great dress will ensure you stay as chic as the locals.

Case 3: British escape
Destination inspiration: Cornwall, the Lake District, the Channel Islands, the Scottish Highlands, Dorset
What to pack: Whether you’re blessed with glorious sunshine or windswept weather for your British adventure, you’ll need a case packed with all-eventuality saviours that won’t let you down. That doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style as you enjoy the countryside and seaside boutiques, though; this holiday is for thrown-together pieces that look instantly effortless, yet chic. Think versatile chinos, chunky knitwear, crinkled linen and flowing blouses.
