The perfect holiday wardrobe

The perfect holiday wardrobe —
wherever you’re going

From bold sunglasses to a hot, bright shirt — what to pack, by Anna Murphy
I always add a few fresh flourishes. Some holiday earrings. A new pair of slides. Something in a bright colour, or pattern, or both. Yet I am wary of trends that I wouldn’t wear in real life. You want to feel like the best version of you when on holiday, not like someone else. Boho has always been a noho for me when on duty, so I am not suddenly going to take it for spin when off duty.
 
 Go for multi-use wherever and whenever you can. Think stealth practicality; items that will work hard for you while looking as if they are all about having fun. Shoes that dazzle in the evening, but that you can wear for sightseeing in the day too. Separates that present as a one-piece, until they don’t. A pouch that is handy for packing, but that transforms into a clutch. And go easy on that chemical-laden suncream courtesy of an array of cover-ups that will render you cool in the literal and metaphorical sense.

Shop and pack with a view to everything working together as much as possible, but make sure there are some flashes of interest in your line-up. That colour and pattern again. Plus bigness and boldness in the form of oversized sunglasses and hat.

Many of us live a muted existence for most of the year. Change it up for your holiday. The best version of you, remember? Not the black version, not the boring version, not the medium-size version. You want to be writ large, writ bright, writ very interesting indeed, if only for a week or two. Sartorial stereo. I promise you, you’ll love it. Then maybe, just maybe, you will be inspired to continue when you get home too.
