What To Pack In 2007

Aug 17, 2007
The holiday wardrobe is something of a double edged sword. It's both a blessing and a curse.

It's a blessing because summer holiday clothes change at a pace that's slower than the rest of your wardrobe so it shouldn't be hard to stay on-trend, but the flip side of that is that when a change occurs in what should be in your case, you might miss it.

The thing about holiday clothes is that are different to the clothes you would wear at home but the notable suitcase trends of the last ten years or so have amounted to only two main items. The cropped trouser and the Kaftan. For some reason this year, it's gone mad! There are not one, not two but three changes to be made to your packing.

The most radical of those changes is the return of the one piece swim suit. It's also the one trend you need to hop-on quickly! For some reason, retailers stop stocking swimwear before summer even starts so pick your up now before they are all gone. The Kylie range in H&M is particularly fabulous.

One frequently tipped item (including by yours truly) is the maxi dress. With so many fashion commentators singling it out as the look of the season, it's going to be very hot this summer!

What I mean by maxi-dress is a lightweight dress, fitting and relatively revealing of tan skin from shoulder to rib level, then floaty down to the ankle.

When picking out yours make sure it reaches your ankle, this is important, ankle looks slightly bohemian and extravagant whereas calf length can come across as a little too "sensible".

The final item this year to fit into your suitcase is the slogan t-shirt. It's also the one item that seems to have cross-over appeal for both holidays and at home. Big and bold prints are very popular this season, fashion brands like Henry Holland and Katherine Hamnet have got some great tees available that express a bit of personality on the beach! T-Shirts are versatile so you can wear them oversized with your swimwear or more fitted in the evening.

On your feet, the gladiator sandal worked last time around and it's still working in 2007, also you won't go far wrong with a gold shoe this summer, it works with just about everything especially black, blue, white, navy and beige. Fashion should never be about functionality but who can't love a show that works with just about your entire wardrobe?

So plenty of suncream and the right location, you'll be all set, just don't forget your passport!
