The sun has finally started emerging in London, and as everyone gets their spring clothes out of storage and looks towards warmer days ahead, my mind inevitably drifts to thoughts of summer getaways. Those blissful days spent lounging on sandy shores or exploring quaint coastal towns—I can’t wait. But amidst the excitement of planning my next adventure, there’s one thing I need to get sorted first: what to pack. Over the years, I’ve honed in on a selection of classic summer staples that never fail to earn a spot in my suitcase, ensuring my holiday wardrobe is practical, easy and chic.

First up on my packing list is a pair of breezy linen trousers, perfect for wandering through bustling markets or enjoying al fresco dinners as the sun sets. Paired with a relaxed basket bag and simple leather sandals, this outfit works no matter what the day has in store. And of course, no summer getaway is complete without a flowing dress that easily transitions from beach cover-up to evening attire with the help of some block heels and accompanied by a trusty pair of sunglasses to shield my eyes from the midday sun.
