There’s no better feeling than leaving the office on a Friday with an overnight bag slung over your shoulder and a smug look on your face. Weekends away help us make it through to our holidays proper, but their limited luggage allowances have the potential to leave us puzzled. Pack too much and risk the wrath of the departures gate inspectors, pack too little and you’ll find half your holiday is spent shopping or – worse still – in the launderette. The key to the suitcase conundrum is a capsule collection, featuring a carefully curated selection of pieces that coordinate, fit the climate and, most importantly, will keep you looking cool when the temperatures start to heat up. We’ve pulled together a list of the holiday must-haves deserving of a place in your case.
THE STRIPED TEE
While we love a good graphic tee, the key to a capsule collection is pieces that are easy to wear together. Stick to the blue and white theme in this great quality striped t-shirt by Hugo Boss.
We love the ethos behind Bowler & Beach swim shorts and the swallow print adds something special to this navy and white pair.
THE LINEN SHIRT
Keep evenings cool and casual in a linen shirt. We love the unusual V-shaped collar on this Armani Collezioni style.
THE CREAM CHINO
Lightweight chinos in a neutral colour like cream will work well with casual tees and smarter shirts alike.
The beauty of Swims loafers is that they can take you from the side of the pool to the side of the bar with more panache than a flip flop ever could.
