Heading off to soak up some winter sun? Then you’re going to need the perfect holiday wardrobe to take with you. Don’t worry, we’ve got your back!

Here’s our top hints and tips to make packing for your winter vacay a breeze:

Shop Online

Finding summer clothes in store during the winter months is no easy task! Save yourself the hassle of trawling the shops by shopping online instead.

Choose a one-stop shop, such as SilkFred , to make your life as easy as possible. You’ll have a range of styles from hundreds of independent brands to choose from.. This is a particularly good option if you’ve just booked a last minute break and don’t have everything you need in your wardrobe already.

Day to Night Essentials

When you’re packing for a winter holiday, look for pieces that will work as hard as possible, ones that can be worn from day to night with the right accessories. A good example of this is a summery playsuit, like this black-based tropical print one. Pair it with flip flops and an oversized straw beach bag for the day, and swap them for with heels and statement earrings for cocktails at sunset.

On the subject of heels, one pair is more than enough! Choose a black or tan pair that will go with any outfit, and save precious weight in your luggage.


A Versatile Swimsuit

Whether you’re a teeny bikini or a one-piece girl, pick simple swimwear in a neutral colour to get as much wear out of it as possible. Black or navy blue is classic, while white or nudes will look great with a tan.

Struggling to choose a colour? Why not look for a reversible swimsuit, giving you two options without having to pack anything extra.

Embrace Winter White

Most of us are guilty of sticking to a uniform of black and grey during the winter months. But if you’re heading for a winter holiday, step out of your comfort zone and embrace white instead. White is the perfect holiday colour, it looks great with tans and gorgeous deep skin tones, and it’s wonderfully versatile too.

We love this white linen playsuit, which is easy to wear both day and night, and will attract attention for all the right reasons.

Pack Accessories

Finally, if you like to wear a different outfit for every occasion and get bored when wearing the same dress evening after evening, then fill any remaining space in your suitcases with accessories. Chunky bead necklaces, metallic clutch bags and oversized sunglasses can all help to bring versatility to a simple dress or shorts and vest.

Packing for a winter holiday doesn’t have to be complicated, just keep things simple and pack smart. If you can’t imagine yourself wearing something more than once then ask yourself if you really need it. We’re all guilty of packing far too much when we go away and hardly wearing any of it!
