Winter sun vacation booked? Suitcase ready and waiting… We give you our lowdown on what to take on the hottest holidays this season.
It’s all about packing for every occasion – and this doesn’t mean taking everything you own. Mix and matching a versatile capsule wardrobe will not only keep your luggage light, but ensure that picking outfits whilst away remains simple and hassle free.
The City Break - Morocco
When it comes to city breaks, the same rule applies across the board, you want to pack light and leave enough room for souvenirs found along the way. At the most, you really need about 4 versatile, interchangeable outfits, that can seamlessly see you through from day to night. City breaks invariably involve a great deal of walking in the heat, so ensure that you pack light, breathable fabrics and comfortable footwear.
Cut from a light, breathable cheesecloth cotton, the incredibly popular Alexa cotton kaftan and longer length Esther style are essential pieces for a hot city break. Available in a stunning range of bright jewel colours or soft pastel tones, these styles look fabulous slipped on over swimwear by a hotel pool or worn with trousers, leggings or jeans whilst out and about exploring the cultural sights or shopping.
Frilled cuffs and neckline ensure that this kaftan top is elegantly feminine whilst incredibly practical. Why not opt for a couple of colours and you'll find you return to this cotton cover-up time and time again.
Off -The-Beaten-Track - Cape Verde
Combining the wonderful cultures of Africa, Brazil and Portugal, this laidback and hospitable destination is great for an off-the-beaten-track escape. The relaxed vibe makes it simple to pack a light, bohemian capsule wardrobe.
Capturing the spirit of holiday with unique style, the Brazil Dress is our flirty interpretation of the Fringed Trend. With a flowing silhouette, this playful dress has adjustable straps, and is made from cotton gauze inset with fuschia pink lace, and adorned with turquoise Aztec inspired embroidery detail. The flatteringly low cut neckline of the Brazil beach dress and open fringed sides will show off a tan, and keep you cool both in the scorching sun or whilst enjoying sunset drinks.
Designed by the MyaBlueBeach design team, this dress is ideal for Cape Verde and will take you effortlessly from the scorching hot beach to a boho beach bar.
Glitzy Resort – Costa Dorada, Spain
For some glamorous winter sun without breaking the bank, Southern Spain offers some of the best sunny escapes. There are plenty of 4 and 5-star winter deals to be had in the glitziest all-inclusive resorts.
Our new Fifi embroidered knee length cotton kaftan features sparkling metallic embroidery around the neckline which will either catch the light of the sun, or glowingly add shimmer by evening candlelight. Available in either classic black or bright white, this style works over beachwear for a luxe poolside cover-up or layered with skinny jeans and heels to provide a kaftan top suitable for even the flashiest formal evening occasions.
