What To Pack For A Beach Holiday
Already planning your summer holiday wardrobe? Us too. Here we've rounded up what to pack for a beach holiday, from the hot weather essentials that will last all summer to the statement dress you won't regret splurging on and classic swimwear you'll rewear for years to come. May you never stress about packing again.Shop the holiday edit
Get lost in a by-the-sea state of mind with our feel-good swimwear in an array of colours and cuts. Beach holidays mean spending a lot of time in your bikini, so pack styles you can mix and match. Black designs and colour-block separates can be easily paired with contrasting bottoms in of-the-moment patterns. Not into bikinis? There are plenty of flattering one-pieces on offer for chic beach looks.
Our favourite colours vary from on-trend yellow (because everyone needs a sunshine dress in their wardrobe) to cool shades of blue. And for something you can re-wear all summer, try a floral number.
Cool cover ups
Ah, kaftans. The summer saviours that give us some stylish coverage between paddles. This season, pack free-flowing kaftans and printed maxi dresses for your holiday. Heading to the bar? Add cork wedges, statement earrings and a metallic clutch, just in time for happy hour.

Our laid back tops and shorts were made for afternoons on the beach. Throw relaxed t-shirts over swimwear or pair halter bikinis with high-waist shorts. Opt for simple clean pieces in palettes that you won't get tired of, think navy, blue and earthy neutrals. Finish off casual looks with oversized beach bags and your signature shades.
What's a beach holiday without a selection of sunshine accessories? We never travel to warmer climes without a trusty pair of sliders and this season, our styles come in every shade. When it comes to beach bags, choose one that'll suit your surroundings. We're all about natural straw styles and novelty bags with tropical prints.
What's just as important as looking good on a holiday abroad? Kicking back poolside and being equipped with the right essentials. From playful beach towels to the novelty inflatables your Instagram feed can't resist, we have all bases covered. Think flamingos, sippers, straws, floats and an extra dose of fun this summer. We promise that you’ll love these must-haves this summer and next (and so will the kids).
The summer can be tough on our skin and we all want that natural holiday glow. But how do we get it and stay safe in the sun? Find a lightweight suncream that is right for your skin for protection during long days on the beach and when the evening comes, top up your colour with a layer of our favourite fake tans. Finally, complete your beauty regime with a light application of bronzer to your cheekbones, nose and chin. And voilà, you've nailed the golden goddess look.
