If you’re heading to Europe and dreaming about all things Summer, it’s time you get your vacay wardrobe sorted ASAP.

 As exciting as Euro outfit planning is, it’s also a little stressful thinking about fitting everything in your case (and making sure you’re notthat person struggling at check-in with an overweight bag).

Whether you’re planning on skipping across the cobbled streets of Mykonos, sunning yourself by an Ibizan pool, or eating in every pizzeria that Naples has to offer, keep it simple with these multitasking essentials that’ll take you from beach to brunch in an instant.

THE MULTITASKERS

As desperate as you are to take the top that you bought in 2017 that’s still hanging in your wardrobe with the tags on, it’s time to let it go. 

We’re advising you to fight your urges and instead look to those hard-working staple tops that go with quite literally anything. From simple and graphic tees to off-the-shoulder cuts in classic hues, these life-saving styles can be teamed with different style shorts, skirts and pants… and don’t get us started on the layering possibilities.

Just remember, when we say staples, we don’t mean boring.

THE RIGHT FOUNDATION

Don’t focus on packing ‘light’, instead, pack smart.

From exploring city streets to planting your bikini bum firmly on a sunlounger for a week, look to versatile pieces that you can throw-on anywhere. 

The right bottoms can be teamed with pretty much anything. Did someone say short shorts? Get your practical pants on in a pair of button-ups and a linen shirt for cycling the streets of Amsterdam and choose a girly frilled skirt as the piece to take you from day to night with ease. Make sure you’ve got every base covered and pack a midi length skirt as they’re the dream accompaniment for visiting basilicas, churches and monuments where you’re required to stick to a particular dress code. To take your look from day to night, teamwith this season’s square-toe sandal heels. Yup, leave the humble round-toe behind because the 90’s is back and this time it’s functional, fashionable and effortless.

DAY-TO-NIGHT 

 It’s tempting to pack a number of day and night dresses on rotation, but when you haven’t got much space (and you need to leave room for your European shopping trip purchases), easy silhouettes are your best bet. Choose casual fabrics like cotton, linen or even lightweight knit as your holiday must-haves and throw them over a bikini with a pair of sunnies whilst sipping on an Aperol, pool-side. You can never go wrong in a white cotton knee-length dress. TheFiorella Dress is easy- breezy and perfect for exploring sunny citiesand late-night dinner and drinks. 

Elevate your ensemble with gold jewellery, strappy sandals and a slick of red lipstick if you’re feeling brave.

SUMMER KNITS

Thanks to the unpredictable weather in Europe, summer knitwear is having its moment.

Think classic neutrals in shades of camel, taupe and eggshell as the perfect way to complement a pair of bleached jeans or white denim and linen. A firm staple for the ‘in-between’ type of forecast that you can expect from the unpredictable British or Parisian weather, make room for an oatmeal, beige or white knit jumper in your case.

Picture this: you, theNoah Cropped knit, a pair of high-waisted Bermuda shorts, and a glass of white wine.

By preparing for those chillier summer nights, you’re simultaneously saving yourself the hassle ofoverlooking one of the most important parts of travelling - what to wear on the plane! When it comes to airport attire, there's nothing better than comfy knitwear. Avoid throwing on mismatching sweatpants and nail airport chic in a light throw-on cardigan or knit for catching flights and beyond.

SWEET DREAMS

You’re never too old for a pair of cute pyjamas, fact.

No matter how many times you’ve packed for a holiday, when it comes to sleepwear, we’re guessing your options might still include your boyfriends baggy t-shirt or a classic panic buy in the airport. Instead, find an insta-worthy pair that pretties up your feed. We’re thinking hair-in-towel, bubbles in hand and a huge fruit platter as you look overviews of the beautiful Amalfi Coast. Are you even on holiday if you don’t ‘gram it? It’s all about linen nightgowns that double-up as beach bar cover-ups and classic silk matching sets that make it impossible to wake up in a bad mood. Remain the epitome of style at all hours of the day and choose a plain silk style in black or white with a collared cut for the ultimate in bedtime chic. 

If you were ever looking for permission to go all out on sleepwear, now’s your chance.
