So ladies, you’ve started counting down the days until you’re on the plane and dreaming of the summer sun and sandy beaches.
But now it’s time to turn attention to the suitcase, and to make sure you’re packing the right items to be looking and feeling good by the pool.
Whether you’ve got a luxurious weight limit on your case or simply taking hand luggage, The Mall Camberley has devised a list of 10 must-have items that should make their way out of the country with you this year.
The 70s are back with a cool hippy style, which not only looks great but is super comfortable too. Fringing is a big hit this year, and a fringed bag is perfect for a perfect accessory to carry your phone, water bottle and sun cream to 'glow with the flow' during the summer holidays.
White items are always a summer must and a big trend on the SS15 catwalks. A white dress and top should be on your packing list too, not only do they enhance your tan, but any colour can be matched with them – hooray!
Kimonos are a big new trend and even in darker colours they are mostly light fabrics that are perfect from the morning swimming pool to your end of afternoon walk to your evening meal.
Playsuits have made their return and are a definite item to look out for at the shops. They can be found in various patterns and can also be worn from day to night.
Swimwear is the item to pack and of course a summer holiday essential, neon colours can be seen across the high street this year. Natural tones are the ones to go for on your feet, and sandals that are light and match well with the 70s style can go straight in your case.
Sunglasses cannot be forgotten, with plenty of styles and frames to suit all shapes and the round ones are now back in trend. Don’t forget to accessorise too.
Jewellery should also be ticked off, with plenty of simple necklaces and rings to see you through summer.
