Here’s your guide to the perfect holiday fashion essentials.
It’s all about the basics when you’re packing for a quick summer jaunt. “A simple white tee, which you should have in your wardrobe all year round, works well with chinos, shorts and swimwear and is an essential basic to travel with at all times,” says Olie Arnold, Style Director at Mr. Porter. It also allows you to go a little crazy, such as with a bold printed camp-collar Hawaiian shirt (which have made a huge comeback.) “This particular version is made from breathable matte satin to keep you feeling cool,” Arnold explains. “I’d advise to keep the rest of your outfit paired down, as one pop of print is all you need for a sound visual,” he cautions. In simple terms, your ideal duffle bag should be stuffed with shorts, simple espadrilles, tortoiseshell glasses. Oh, and don’t forget the sunscreen.
