From pool-side lounging to drinks in the lounge bar, with L&F's holiday capsule wardrobe you'll be ready for the scene change. Whether it's a resort vacation or a summer staycation, verstaile dressing will keep summer looking slick and stylish.
Essential to all holiday wardrobes is a good swimsuit. The bikini vs. one-piece is down to personal preference but a one-piece does give added versatility. When it's time to move from the pool to the bar, simply pull on a lightweight pair of pants and a cover-up and you're cocktail ready.
Day trippin' style - take in the sights, browse the markets or hang out at a cafe, pair lightweight pants with a breathable bamboo jersey top and you're good to go!
Nothing says summer like a white pant - go for a straight-cut leg to keep the look classic and elegant.
Easy, yes; glamourous, absolutely! Lightweight pants are comfortable for day time but styled up for evening, they can be decadent and glamorous too, especially with our silky touch Eco-blend fibres.
Silky-smooth, the Lindsey Pant is always just an invitation away from occasionwear. Contrast her Terracotta colourway with a seductive black bamboo jersey top to transform her look to one of relaxed evening glam.
Choose lightweight,breathable fabrics and go for styles that offer a little more coverage to protect you from the sun.
The Terry Top in Etoile is a versatile option. Her ruched 3/4 sleeves lightly veil the arms while a pleat at the centre front offers easy volume through the body.
As part of your holiday capsule wardrobe, she's a throw-on top over swimmers for the beach; tucked in to cool white pants, she'll take you to lunch; and style her with navy separates and heels for evening elegance.
Dressing For Dinner
While separates offer great mix n' match styling options, it's always good to pack a dress or two.
A wrap dress will be your holiday hero. Over a swimsuit, she'll get you to breakfast in the sun then slip her off when it's time to lounge by the pool. Perfect for on-again-off-again wear, a wrap dress will enable you to move fluidily through each day's journey with ease.
For evening too, a dress will instantly elevate your look and your feel. Style up your wrap dress work-horse with heels and dazzling jewellery to change her look. Or if you've space in your suitcase, sneak a second dress just for evening glamour and make the most of those summer nights.
So there's the basics of your holiday capsule wardrobe all laid out. For a holiday capsule wardrobe you can pack in your hand luggage, you'll need:
▢ 2 pairs of lightweight pants
▢ 3 tops - 1 in bamboo jersey, 1 with sleeve coverage, 1 with a print/style feature you can style for day and night
▢ A one-piece swimsuit
▢ A lightweight cover-up
▢ A wrap dress
Optional - second dress to freshen up your style for evening.
PLUS accessories: slide/sandals, a pair of heels, a wide-brimmed hat, a beach bag and sunglasses.
Of course, these are just the basics. The fun is in the embellishing. Embrace that summer feeling and find a wardrobe that fits your mood if not your holiday plans!
I have 3 pairs of these pants now. They are my go-to work pants. They are so comfortable, classy and go with everything. They sit well on my hips and are very flattering due to the way they fall and the high quality material used. They are also my favourite travel pants as they are comfy, not tight around waist and don’t need ironing.
Perfect length for petites and colour is stunning!
Absolutely gorgeous colour and such a high quality pair of pants. Unfortunately the style isn’t working for my current body shape (I exchanged for a different size but both didn’t suit). Whilst disappointing for me it’s a reminder that not every style suits every body type. For those that it will suit, they are a really lovely piece.
Lovely fabric and mulberry colour. Unfortunately the style hasn’t worked for my current shape (short pear) so have returned.
First up late purchase and looking for something not to OOT. This is perfection!
Beautiful blue dress for a formal wedding. So comfortable and wore a slip underneath
I love the fit and colour of this top. The blue is beautiful
Beautiful soft slinky fabric. This will be on high rotation
Adding cobalt to my rainbow of Emilys was a great choice.
Perfect for work or play. Great with navy, black and denim. 💙
I have this in white and now the black. I like the fit and it looks very stylish. I teamed the black shirt with white jeans and was happy with the look.
I love these so much, so comfortable to wear. I would like them a tad shorter due to only being 5’3”. I think they will get plenty of wear.
Love this top. My first ziggy and it really is such a comfortable and stylish shape. And the Emerald Arches print is so striking, I receive compliments every time I wear it.
Love the lower-cut square neckline, fitted front, and longer rounded back. Stand-out print, great with slim black pants or a fitted black skirt.
I normally buy a 12 in the Jarcardis but found I could have gone down a size. It’s a beautiful colour with a great style that goes with so many of my L&F pieces. I love the versatility that comes with this smart little jacket.
People have mentioned ‘work pyjamas’ often on these pages - now I think I get what they mean. Divinely stretchy and comfy, the Monroe pant is flattering and the petrol colour adds class. New fave pants.
