Top 10 items to pack for your vacation

Our 10-piece edit is proven to stop you dreading vacation packing!

1. Dress

Floral Dress: MANGO

Throw in a floral dress (or three) as 90s fashion remains in the spotlight. Simply throw over a bikini and champion SS19’s City to Shore trend. The polka dot dress should also be on your packing list, with lace sleeves presenting a romantic take on the classic.

Polka Dot Dress: ASOS

2. Skirt

Your tanned pins will thank you for packing a wraparound skirt. Vintage-looking crochet nails beach-to-bar dressing.

You’re not vacation ready without a summer blouse on your radar. Volume sleeves are a new season hit with ruching details at the shoulders or waist. Show off sun-kissed skin in cropped styles.

4. Trousers

High waisted bow tie culottes: P.A.R.O.S.H.

High waisted trousers are back. They not only look sleek but keep you cool in the sunshine too. Pleated panels add drama to your holiday wardrobe, while striped print is a nautical favorite.

5. Shorts

Bike Shorts: Boohoo

Bike shorts – are here to stay forever! Pair them with baggy sweatshirts, hoodies, blazers or a bra top, and add black leather mules or casual runners. It’s time to rock the cycling shorts as our moms did!

6. Sandals

Book that pedi and pack those summer sandals. From prim bows to crystal embellishment, the look is feminine no matter if you choose comfy flats or leg-lengthening woven wedges.

Erica Sandals: ALDO

7. Sneakers

Inspired by archival sneakers from the decade, Adidas Originals’ ‘Falcon’ style is made from a combination of mesh, leather and suede – for your unique style and comfort. The SS19 hot pick is boldly colored with an elevated vibe.

The finishing touch to any holiday look is, of course, statement sunglasses! Colored or mirrored lenses add summer fun with contrast frames creating drama. Go for a fashion-forward narrow oval pair or geometric shapes.

The possibilities are endless when it comes this season’s summer bag trends. For party vacations, festivals and city breaks, consider the belt bag. Choose a pop of color or urbanite studs and carry only the essentials. For beach getaways, look to a carry-all in colored crochet, geometric weaves, or pastel basket material.

10. Swimwear

Shop on EyeFitU: Summer Swimwear

A simple swimsuit with a confident deep plunge neckline comes in rainbow colors. Playful graphic prints offer youthful appeal; classic block colors transcend seasons. For something with a twist, opt for a wrap bikini. The criss-cross ties are form-flattering and pool-party ready.
