Your Most Stylish Carry-on Yet

Fashion

We’ve got packing down to a fine art…

Wertheim Village

While you’re dreaming of affogatos and bola de Berlim, we’ll take care of the contents of your carry-on. Here’s your checklist of six effortlessly chic, never-leave-home-without essentials to pack.

1.

THE PERFECT TEE

The building block of every holiday wardrobe, the perfect T-shirt is easily worn solo or layered with a cardigan, denim or biker jacket. Look for a linen-jersey piece with just the right amount of slouch, a soft cotton style with a slogan or playful print piece, and a silk-trimmed version for after dark.

2.

THE CHIC CAMISOLE

When it comes to this irrefutable holiday staple, washed silk or satin is the way to go. Opt for bright hues – orange, peach or red – with a bias-cut to elevate the simplest of outfits or to layer under a kimono.

3.

THE SATIN TROUSERS

Lightweight and fluid, satin trousers are a must-have when it comes to travelling with just a carry-on. Opt for a wide-leg design with an elasticated waistband and a flared leg in fuchsia or turquoise for evenings out on the town.

4.

THE POLISHED PRINT

Every carry-on should prioritise chic, crease-proof pieces – whether it’s a kaftan, kimono or off-shoulder dress – which just says ‘out of office’. We’re partial to a Missoni-esque crochet tunic dress that can double as a bikini cover-up and a ruffled polka dot playsuit to go from beach-front to bar without missing a beat.

5.

THE DAY-TO-NIGHT FLATS

Elevate your day-to-night look faster you can ask ‘ou est la plage?’ with embellished ballet flats or loafers. Find a suede pair with pearl, stud or embroidery detailing and satin ankle ties that will loop elegantly around bare, beach-bronzed legs.

6.

THE CROSS-BODY CLUTCH

No holiday wardrobe is complete without a textured leather cross-body bag with a detachable or adjustable strap, should you choose to carry it as a clutch. Pack one in soft, supple leather that has plenty of space for your daily essentials, yet doesn’t bulk up in transit. Or, if you prefer to be hands-free all at times, there’s always the micro bumbag seen on every off-duty model.
