The hol­i­day edit

The Jewish Chronicle - - LIFE/FASHION - BY TA­MARA CORIN

AS A fam­ily of five, there’s plenty of lug­gage and p a c k i n g when t h e hol­i­day sea­son ar­rives, but iron­i­cally the only woman in the house, a.k.a me, packs t he least amount be­fore a trip abroad. Even my hus­band is privy to try­ing to squeeze a sixth pair of shoes into his suit­case, just-in-case. Since my chal­leng­ing brood came on the scene, my justin-case items no longer ex­ist. Now, the most im­por­tant things to re­mem­ber are moun­tains of nosh and of course an iPad to keep the lit­tle ones (and my hus­band) en­ter­tained.

Al­though I’ve scaled back on my wardrobe, I haven’t on my style. I’ve mas­tered the art of whit­tling down the chic-est hol­i­day es­sen­tials that can be seem­ingly mixed and matched to cre­ate a cap­sule wardrobe that is as easy to wear, as it is to pack. (Though I haven’t quite achieved this when it comes to my toi­letries and make-up bag! )Whether you’re go­ing on a beach hol­i­day or a city break, these in­vest­ment buys will see you through sum­mer and get you hol­i­day-ready in a flash.
