Are you tired of paying extra for baggage on your summer travels? Hand Luggage Holidays have become increasingly popular, focusing on versatile pieces that can be dressed up or down. While there may be new micro-trends every summer, we've compiled a list of classic, timeless summer fashion essentials that will never go out of style. Here are our top recommendations for your hand luggage:
1. Tank Tops:
A must-have for any summer getaway, tank tops in staple colors like black or white are invaluable. These comfortable and lightweight tops are perfect for traveling, throwing over your bikini, or using as pajamas. For a chic look, style them with fitted trousers or a long skirt, and add some nice jewelry for a perfect outfit for beach-side cocktails before dinner.
2. Mini Skirts:
Miniskirts are a must-pack item for every holiday. Whether you're hitting the clubs or experiencing scorching hot days, they offer the perfect solution. Pair them with a cute bandeau when visiting tourist hotspots, snap some Instagram-worthy pictures, and call it a day! Miniskirts effortlessly create a stylish outfit without taking up much space in your bag.
3. Linen Trousers:
To combat the heatwaves while maintaining comfort, everyone loves linen trousers. In particular, white linen trousers have seen a surge in popularity over the past two years, extending even to the men's range in many stores. These trousers are perfect for sightseeing, going out for lunch, and hitting the beach. Stay cool and stylish in this summer staple.
Bandeaus are the ideal clothing item for beach holidays. They provide coverage on your way to and from the beach, allowing you to wear your bikini underneath. They are versatile enough for post-tanning dinners, clubbing, and even touristy days. Opt for bright colors and patterns, but make sure to choose a color that complements your bikinis, shorts, and skirts!
Now, hear us out on this one: jorts (jean shorts) are perfect for those who can pull them off, and with the right styling, anyone can! Thicker than linen trousers, jorts serve as a great alternative for travel days. Pair them with an oversized t-shirt and some nice trainers for a casual yet stylish look. Additionally, jorts work exceptionally well with bandeaus, crop tops, and tank tops, creating fashionable ensembles effortlessly.
We hope these fashion tips inspire you to explore your existing wardrobe or consider investing in these five essential summer pieces that will fit perfectly in your hand luggage. And of course, don't forget to wear sun cream to protect your skin throughout your summer adventures!
