The first thing I do is choose a colour palette- this is the single most important tip I always give. Not only does it help coordinate everything in your wardrobe, but it also makes it much easier to edit things down. This summer I am going for a monochrome base with touches of green and shades of blue. It also helps to have a “hero” item that sets the tone of your holiday wear- for me this year it’s my new Prada deck stripe canvas beach bag.
On a beach holiday there is no limit to the number of bikinis and swimsuits I pack- it’s what I live in most days and I like to have lots of choice. This year I’ve invested in a few new pairs to revive my stash. I love Prism for their mix and match approach and great fabric quality, Bodas for their simple and flattering designs and Marysia for more fun pieces.
