Holly Wade, family holiday in Italy:
Holly’s packing coloured midi and patterned floaty summer dresses. Going for a sophisticated look Holly’s channelling chic for simple luxury. Playsuits are a staple in her suitcase, saving space and providing both day and evening looks – great for bikini cover ups and looking cute at that beach side restaurant. For lazy days on the beach Holly’s investing in a cute floral bikini, fun yet family resort friendly. Holly’s accessorising her outfits with a floppy hat for the Audrey Hepburn Roman Holiday look.

David Haigh, Outlook festival in Croatia:
For a hot and sticky festival, David’s suitcase essentials include a multitude of vests and shorts; cheaper items that he won’t mind getting muddy or lost in tent chaos. However, David’s keeping his look stylish with sunglasses and snapbacks; both updating his festival style and providing much needed sun protection. Tying his fun and eclectic look together, David’s packing colourful and patterned summer shirts for attention grabbing outfits.

Alice Maynard, romantic retreat in Corfu:
Alice’s Greek get-a-way suitcase will be full of cute and flirty summer looks; from midi-dresses for gorgeous evening dinners to pretty camisoles and shorts to keep things casual during the day. Alice’s holiday looks will be accessorised with gladiator sandals, and for evening sophisticated wedges – practical but sexy. Her maxi skirts and dresses will add glamour and sophistication to this evening look. Cute patterned skirts will also be a suitcase essential, perfect for those days rambling around old Greek villages.

Anna Walker, InterRailing through France:
For Anna’s French adventure, her rucksack will be stuffed with light layers and playsuits. Practicality is key here; long train journeys might go from hot to cold and she’s packing for all eventualities. To keep her backpack light Anna will be taking versatile looks, easy for that day to night transition, such as denim shorts and crop tops. Heels are off the packing list, and flats and comfy walking shoes are on. Anna’s also investing in a cute bum bag – hate them if you must but 90’s accessories are in and keeping valuables safe in a foreign city is vital.

Four different holidays, four different suitcases. Go for effortless cool with lose clothing. Guys, don’t be afraid of a patterned summer shirt. Girls, keep it casual in those floaty dresses and skirts, and glam it up with midi dresses when the sun goes down.
