Holiday Wardrobe Hacks

how to build the ultimate holiday capsule wardrobe

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.

Pool Side to Bar Vibes

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.

From Resort Casual...

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. Resort Elegance

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.

Laid Back Summer Style

Summer Style that will take you anywhere

Pack Lightweight, Pack Breathable

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.

Your Hand Luggage-Sized Holiday Wardrobe

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!
