With two bank holidays this month, there’s plenty of opportunity to pack those bags and take a well deserved break. Whether you have a foreign holiday planned, a weekend city break or a few days staying with relatives, let us help you with the packing.
The rule of 3: pack all items with the intention of wearing each item in a variety of outfits that work in at least three different occasion types.
Let me show you how with the classic white jeans:
By styling your white tailored, or slim fit, jeans with black heeled sandals and our Alia clutch bag (seen here in Cappuccino), you have the basis of three different outfits. Pair with a cream t-shirt, a black sequined sleeveless top or a natural-coloured sleeveless crochet top for a selection of chic day to evening looks.
Now, keep hold of the black heeled sandals, the black sequin top and the cream t-shirt and you have another two beautiful outfits when worn with a bold pop of colour, for example, this bright teal skirt. Team with our Alia clutch bag and you have two fab evening outfits, just by adding one skirt to the mix. Clever, eh!
Five different outfits, all timeless, and all accessorised by just one handbag!
A light jacket for springtime offers security against the cooler evenings and any inclement weather. A denim jacket is our ‘go-to’ – working across a variety of outfits. Seen here with a light blue denim dress, classic white converse - for comfort and style - and our Malaika hobo-bag (in Graphite).
Reintroduce your favourite – and super versatile – white jeans, the cream crochet top and you have the start of another two outfits.
A pair of flat, tan sandals makes for a comfy daytime outfit when paired with either brown linen shorts or the white jeans.
If you have some sightseeing planned, opt for the Alia clutch bag, which comes with a matching coin purse. If it’s a trip to the shops or the beach, consider our foldaway shopper/beach bag, called Neha.
Seen here in Walnut Brown, Neha has a classic ticking stripe design and is available in three different colour ways (Walnut Brown, Midnight Blue and Red Ivory). You can also match your Neha bag with our Ronnie washbags, which double as coin purses or bag organisers!
A few additional essentials and you are ready to go!
