Are you an overpacker? Underpacker? Last minute packer? We're about to rescue you from the tailspin you're in surveying the mountain of clothes on your bed that ideally you'd like to zap into your suitcase. It’s been a year of not traveling, so we don't blame you.
Ladies, get ready to turn your packing nightmares into a coordinated art form that will surely tick off the most anxiety inducing task off your list.
Synonymous with packing light is getting ready for a beach holiday. The temperature is scorching, what else do you need other than skimpy bikinis and breezy outfits? We're talking minimal tan lines here, opting for Trepezzi's Reversible two-piece or Brescia Bercane's striped bikini. Not a fan of the sun? Pack on the SPF and pack bathing suits of every style to make sure you've got all your bases covered. For extra flair and a suit to double up as a stylish top, we're going with Villa Yasmine's Tucan Babylon or Cocora Boutique's Pompinjay metallic one piece. Are you more of a classic kind of girl? The HAI Swimwear Classic Peekaboo is your go-to, simple and elegant! If we've got a surf girl in the crowd, well.. See for yourself, Trepezzi has taken surf bodysuits from boring to ultra chic!
Layer those gorgeous swimsuits with a wrap-up by Villa Yasmine, Poolside Pants by HAI Swimwear, or channel your inner Boho Chic with a stylish Kimono. We couldn't choose a favourite, so we're going with Dee by Dalia, Azee Bazaar and Jodi or Kaftans by Mafanfa.
Give 'em Shade! Wide-brimmed hats are an ode to wrinkle-free skin, and to a polished beach look! To keep traveling light, choose a beach hat that can complement any outfit like those from Design Susu, Little Things and Inaash. But if you have space, opt for a statement making hat and matching bag such as the yellow wooden basket and hat from Candy and Lola.
Short on space but don’t want to compromise your look? Get a double edged bag that you can strut under the sun but also style with an evening outfit like the Ara Sunwear Bucket. If you're not a fan of recurring outfits, the City Girl, nnbynn and About That Girl beach bags can be flat-packed into your luggage taking as minimal space as possible. You could also go for the Design Susu Boho Chic Bag that you can pair with any outfit colour! For the lucky ones with extra space to spare, a large beach bag is what you need. Marrakech Shop Design and Candy & Lola are where your eyes should be headed towards. Make sure to get a beach pouch from Tidi Designs to keep you from scouring through your large bag!
Slip on a pair of your favourite slides by Khomssa Hand Craft and Slayed Comfort to complete your look, or show off your manicured toes in a pair of Sandals by The Pavement World.
Packing for the bustling metropolis is a tricky one. You want to flaunt your most fashionable outfits for that insta-worthy shot, but you also want to be able to explore the hidden gems of the city in the utmost comfort. Enter experts of Kinzzi, to get you the best of both worlds.
Our theme has been versatile, so we're going for clothing that makes sense when you have your tourist hat on, but also when you want to glam up at night. You can't go wrong with a jumpsuit, so our bets are on Villa Yasmine, Color Story by Dee and Dee by Dalia! A light, breezy dress is also a travel favourite, so we're going for dresses by Kamishinai, Irma Markevicute and Spiritum Tulum. Cut out dresses are perfect for that back shot, so we chose this cut-out staple by Jodi. Pack these stylish outfits and get ready in a breeze!
If you're envisioning yourself in leggings all trip long, FIO's got you! Go for an all black outfit with the FIO leggings or biker shorts and throw on an oversized Tee and jacket for the ultimate comfortable fashion staple.
Pro-tip: Keep your heel height to a minimum and pack a pair of your favourite comfortable yet stylish espadrilles by Solana to complete the look!
Having a light jacket on hand has forever been a good idea, so we're going for a denim jacket by Heritage that goes with almost everything. You could also easily pull off a white or black leather jacket by Vyes.
Keep all your travel essentials in one place, but make sure to make a statement with it too! Take out your S'uvimol Shoulder Bag to the city! Plus points if you also carry it at the airport to activate the 2 S's: Security & Style!
A night out in the city calls for textured trousers, let these XIA standout pants speak for themselves, with the XIA Grecian Top and a chunky necklace! Or show off your legs with the Tanoura Zola Shorts, paired with the XIA Kache Korset or Embellished Top, our bets are also on the Purple Wolf Shorts ensemble for a look that will undoubtedly turn heads!
