travel must-haves: what to pack in 2019


womenswear holiday edit

get your sunshine-ready, head-to-toe ensembles packed up for up to 60% less

For a SS19 womenswear update, Lacoste, Tommy Hilfiger and more bring the bikinis to be seen in. Try out sun-baked shades and neutrals to maximise that tan you’ll be working on. Retro-inspired swimming costumes or backless one-pieces remain in the spotlight too. And when you can finally tear yourself away from the beach, throw on easy but chic layers such as a linen dress or kaftans in soft cotton.

 

Ground your look with versatile designer trainers that will keep you comfortable pounding the pavements of your new favourite capital, while looking youthful and fresh whatever your outfit of the day (or night). For an array of ensembles during your holiday, pack lightweight options perfect for layering. Whether it’s a spring jacket by M&S Outlet or a GAP floral maxi dress, enjoy style mileage by mixing up your accessories for different holiday plans. You can’t go wrong with denim shorts, an LBD and crisp linen – look to Levi's and Jaeger for inspiration.

You’re not phased by a mountain climb or a countryside hike and you need a holiday wardrobe that works as hard as you do. TOG24, Fossil and more have got you covered with small roller bags to take as your cabin luggage and high-tech travel backpacks for more extreme adventures. Shield your eyes from the sun in sports-luxe sunglasses – we love contemporary designs by Sunglass Hut. Whether you need to add heat-tech T-shirts to your packing list or street-star-worthy fashion cargo pants, we guarantee your suitcase will be filling up after a trip to East Midlands Designer Outlet. You’ve got this.

Our boho top picks will have you dreaming of that moment you’ll dip your toes into the ocean on a white sand beach. Gladiator sandals and minimal sliders provide comfortable yet chic footwear to take you from beach to bar. Once you’ve chosen your swimwear (check out Joules for our top picks), we’re down to the outfits themselves. Yumi and GAP present gorgeous maxis in flowing materials or poolside cover-ups adorned with tassels and pretty lace panels…dreamy.
