No matter where your travels take you this summer, make sure you pack all the essentials for a chic outfit every day of the holiday. For our SCD guide to what to pack for holiday, we’ve selected our three favourite destinations to make sure you have that ultimate summer style whatever the ambience.
Beach holiday in Greece
Ready to escape England’s unreliable forecast and hit the beautiful, sandy beaches of the Greek Isles? Make sure you pack your sunshine-ready essentials. The Tailored Silk Short in Pink Beach Flower is perfect for a beach getaway. These shorts radiate summer feeling with their delicate floral print. Pair with the Lace Back Top in Sky Blue, which can double up as a beach cover-up or is just right for creating a relaxed yet stylish evening look. The shorts can also be paired with swimwear – pack two different styles, such as a costume and bikini, to mix up your look. Use a beach-ready bag and wear comfy sandals, ideal for exploring the area. Accessorise with sunglasses and a sunhat to protect you from the rays but also give your outfit a chic look. These essentials will set you up perfectly for lazy days by the shore and casual evening drinks.
Italian city break
If you are planning a city break away sightseeing, the Classic Silk Shirt Dress in Soft Peach is the perfect go-to. This elegant silk dress will keep you comfortable while looking stylish, taking you effortlessly from day to night. The Rose Silk Bow Mini Dress is, meanwhile, an utterly elegant option for a dinner date. Limit yourself to two pairs of shoes – practical trainers to explore a new city in and a refined pair for the evening. Bring a small cross-body bag in which to keep your essentials safe. Accessorise your outfit with sunglasses and a statement watch. For the cooler evening temperatures, bring a light denim jacket to wear over this luxurious summer dress. (are these dresses the same thing? Maybe make this clearer if so, or change the last sentence to ‘these luxurious summer dresses’)
Hanging out in Los Angeles
If you are travelling to Los Angeles for a relaxing, long-haul holiday, make sure you pack the essentials for the California look. Make L.A. style your own and opt for the Beach Flower Wide-Legged Trouser or the Silver Silk Palazzo Trouser for a trendy yet effortless look. With every area of L.A. having its own stylish personality, you can match these luxurious trousers with any shirt. Try the Fitted Silk Shirt in Sky Blue with sleeves rolled up for a casual look, or embrace your feminine side and go for the Lace Shirt in Sky Blue tucked in. To match the Californian easy-going style, pair your outfit with a plain bag, big chic sunglasses and gold jewellery. To elevate your look, wear heeled sandals to elongate your legs in these gorgeous trousers.
