5 luxury fashion items you can’t go on holiday without

We all want to look our best when away. We rummage through our wardrobe in search of the pieces that will make us feel as good as the vacation we’re about to embark on. But sometimes if you really want to dress to impress a bit of pre-holiday shopping is in order. So we’ve pulled together some knockout fashion buys to take you from day to night. Whether you’re lounging by the pool or enjoying a fabulous moonlit dinner these luxury items will help you feel your best.

The ultimate sunglasses

Every holiday outfit begins with the shades. Whether you’re strolling through the streets of Capri or catching some winter sun on the slopes of Megeve, a pair of signature lenses is essential. And Linda Farrow sunglasses, with their 1970s heritage, epitomize innovation, and cutting-edge cool. The ‘Double Browline 2’ model in collaboration with designer Prabal Gurung is the standout accessory for any outfit.

The beachwear

Now we are all about the statement jewelry, the statement bag, the statement shoe, but we have found the statement swimwear that will set you apart on the beach this summer. New Australian designers We Are Handsome couple classic styles with awe-inspiring prints that reference the stunning Australian landscape. For the perfect two-piece our pick is ‘The Potion’ string bikini. But if you’re feeling a little less risque then the ‘Garden Deep V One’ one-piece is equally head turning.

The daywear

We are so head-over-heels for the ethically sourced, hand-made creations from Muzungu Sisters that we’ve created a complete look perfect for your summer vacation. Any of their stunning pieces would put you in good standing. But we recommend their Jaipur Short Beads, Yellow Infinity Kaftan I and Oversized Coin Clutch IX. Throw on over your bathing suit and you’re good to go.

The beach shoe

Of course you may want to feel the sand between your toes, but the quintessential Melissa jelly flat will complement your Muzungu Sisters outfit perfectly. Choose the coral-colored Melissa flat from the Melissa Jean + Jason Wu II collaboration. Comfortable, effortless, and who doesn’t need a pair of shoes that can be worn straight into the sea?

The eveningwear

Your beautiful Kaftan could take you through to evening. However, for that special night out we have found the ultimate dress. From Brazilian designer Barbara Casasola‘s Summer 2013 collection, this fuchsia silk crepe cady and georgette long dress with open front skirt and shorts with pocket detail has that wow factor. Pair with Melissa-Vivienne Westwood‘s Anglomania + Melissa Lady Daragon IX high heel in nude with hot pink bow. Chic, sexy and playful – the perfect ensemble to start your night.

    Turkish peshtemal towels are my addition to the list of items whilst traveling. They are lightweight, flat-woven and extraordinarily compact cotton towels. Perfect as travel towels for beach, caravan and camping holidays.I don’t go anywhere without them.
