Pack Light and Bright - Your Summer Travel Wardrobe

It's SUMMER TIME and with that comes a Summer holiday. So, you’ve got your booking confirmation and your transport is booked, it’s now time to consider what to pack in your suitcase.

Before you start filling up your suitcase though, consider what kind of travel you’ll be doing: is it a lounging-by-the-pool vacation? Will you be ticking off key sightseeing sites on a daily basis? Or will you be road tripping and living the van life? Or are you one of the lucky ones taking an international flight? The answer will give you a clear direction on whether you fill your luggage up with flats for walking or high heels for beach club partying. One thing is certain, though, no matter what type of travel you’ve got in mind, you’ll want to pack light and bright!

To maximize the number of outfits you get out of your suitcase, consider packing pieces that all go together in one colour palette. Then start with your neutral basics which will give you many style options. then opt for a dressier top for special occasions, a great tee as you can go wrong with that, then either a dress or a relaxed top or blouse. Of course we haven't forgotten, accessories are pretty important too. Think versatility, choose footwear, jewellery, handbags etc that are neutral and will style back with your travel wardrobe.

Now that we know what we're doing and what we roughly need, let's take a look at 4 vibrant and summery looks we've styled for you. Hopefully this gets you excited for that awesome holiday!
