Heading away for a tropical escape from our chilly winter? Well, we are, not on holiday, but to shoot our spring summer fashion and beauty campaign. Style director Louise Hilsz shares her essentials and tips on how to pack for any vacay occasion.
Travelling to the tropics? The ultimate go-to item is an easy to wear, statement dress. Great for day trips around the island, or for sipping cocktails at dusk. Add a belt and you have instant evening glam.
A comfortable pant is the ultimate travel partner. From the airport lounge to a casual lunch by the pool this summer invest in a neutral print of classic black, white and the wardrobe staple, grey.
Narrow down your footwear selection (so you have room to buy more if your somewhere that has a shopping element) to the essentials. A travel sneaker, built for walking, the essential pool slide, and an elegant strappy heel that can work for a lunch date or a dinner for two.
Just because you're on holiday it doesn't mean the glam factor can stop. Amp up any outfit with statement earrings a pair of pretty, tinted sunglasses and the essential floral tote (big enough for a day of shopping), these essentials will liven up any holiday look.
No holiday look is complete without a faux glow and a pop of tropical-inspired colour for your fingers and toes. Be sun smart and carry the essential sunscreen -SPF50 whereever you go. And to take you from the pool to a party, dry shampoo is one of the first things you need to pack.
