What to pack for a winter getaway
12 October 2018
The golden rule for packing any warm-weather suitcase? The lighter the better. Limit your choices to a select edit of hardworking, multi-tasking pieces so you spend less time worrying about what to wear and more time lying horizontal on a sun-lounger or sipping cocktails under the stars. Here's our guide to help you get started.
SHOP THE WINTER SUN EDIT
Making a stylish splash
If beach and pool time is high on your agenda, take one confidence-boosting swimsuit (ideal for the beginning of the holiday when you’re still working on your tan), plus a couple of mix and match bikinis so you can experiment with different looks. You’ll also want one or two chic cover-ups so you can float your way to the beach bar with ease.

Seeing the sights
For a breezy transition from pool to beach promenade, try a chic little playsuit complete with a basket bag for all your essentials. If you're culture seeking, make sure you check dress codes before leaving your resort – the last thing you want is to be refused entry to temples and churches. If covering your legs and shoulders is required, opt for a boho-style top and linen trousers – it's a safe bet and will still keep you cool. Equally, consider a sleek jumpsuit so if you happen to stay out for sundowners, you’ll feel appropriately dressed.
Dining under the stars
This is where a 24/7 dress really gets its moment in the limelight (or moonlight in this case). If you’ve been really savvy with your suitcase, you might have already worn said dress to breakfast, but adding a pair of statement earrings and a bold lip will instantly add wow-factor. And those heels you think you’ll wear? Leave them at home, swapping for chic day-to-night sandals or wedges (your feet and pedicure will thank you for it).
