The Essential Guide to Summer Holiday Packing

Image source: have been renewed, tickets and money booked now all you have to do is pack your case and you’ll be ready to hit the beach.

If suitcases, weight limits and liquid bans send you into a spin, do not fret because we have the ultimate guide to packing.

Sun cream is essential because those pesky UV rays can penetrate the skin even if you are sight seeing on a cloudy day. Dermalogica Super Sensitive Shield SPF30 is a broad-spectrum sunscreen that contains an exclusive UltraCalming™ Complex and because it’s chemical free it’s perfect for the most sensitive skins.

Sunglasses are a must and mirrored lenses, cat-eyes and tortoiseshell styles are all on trend for summer 2015. Pop them in your hand luggage so you have them handy the moment you step into the holiday sun.

Hats not only look good but also shelter you from the midday sun. Opt for a floppy 70s inspired wide-brimmed number that looks effortless chic and will keep you cool all holiday long.

Don’t try to squash in your entire wardrobe into one bag. Make an initial pile, halve it and then halve it again and you will still probably wear the same few items all holiday.

Shoes are key for holiday style so wear a pair of colour popping trainers whilst travelling and pack flip-flops, sandals and heels in the bottom and corners of your case to make the most of the space you have.

Scarves are your holiday multi-taskers as they can be used as a skirt, bikini cover-up, turban hair protector and shoulder saver. Take a couple, wearing one on the plane to save case space.

Our rule of thumb is to take two bikinis or swimsuits for every week you are away. They are light and easy to pack and if you mix and match tops and bottoms you can change your look everyday and avoid tan lines.

Wear a denim jacket for traveling and then match it with dresses, skirts, shorts and even sarongs for a classic look that ticks all the style boxes.

Use a see-through wash-bag with compartments for your beauty essentials such as moisturiser, sun cream, toothpaste and after sun. Put this in the hold unless you are only taking travel size products less than 50 ml or the whole lot will be confiscated. Ouch.

Unless you are going on a digital detox pack your mobile, camera, laptop and tablet together with their chargers and any adaptors you need.

Pop clean underwear and spare set of clothes in your hand luggage just incase your suitcase goes missing.

So, what are you waiting for? Get packing and have a great holiday.
