What to Pack for a Warm Winter Holiday

Feature: Quick Read
Words by Eleanor Hibberd

There are two types of people in this world – winter dressers and summer dressers. While some delight in the cosy layers of colder months, others are simply counting down to the moment they can slip into a summery dress. If you fall into the latter, you’re among friends here – by the names of Sir., Zimmermann, Missoni and more. So, for those who are chasing that winter sun, here’s everything you need to pack to look the part.

A Little Black Swimsuit

Consider this the core piece and swimsuit trend around which your entire holiday wardrobe will rotate. We spend 99% of our time in swimwear when on holiday (don’t forget your SPF!), so you have to make sure it’s chic. Just as a little black dress works wonders for eventing – elegant and effortless – a little black swimsuit follows suit on vacation.

A White Dress

Be sure to include a few white dresses in your suitcase – easy and breezy in crisp cottons and linens, they’re the saviours of style in hot, sticky climes. The perfect day fare, white dresses can easily be worn as cover-ups over swimwear if you want to partake in a little sightseeing before hitting the beach.

Evening Outfits

There’s no greater feeling than slipping into your eveningwear after a post-beach shower. Make the most of light, balmy evenings and hit that golden hour in style with a few glamorous options for dinner reservations or nights on the town. Lurex and silk will catch the last light come sundown, while sleek midi dresses give us serious ‘drinks on the veranda’ energy.
