4 outfits you should definitely remember to pack for your holiday

Sun, fun, relax, and repeat. These scene stealing combinations will keep you connected in more ways than one.

We fit in a lot this time of year. Our days are frantically filled as we wrap up tasks and to-do lists, and our evenings are spent socialising leaving little time to plan or pack appropriately for our impending getaway. As we dust off the weekenders and summon our swimwear from the depths of our drawers, the contents of our suitcases tend to fall somewhere between forgetting the essentials and overpacking to excess. 

To strike a balance and make certain you can head away with a concise closet of considered pieces, we’ve formulated four outfits that should have you covered whichever turn your holiday takes. 

The day trip

If you find yourself venturing to the vineyard down the road or frequenting the local festival for the afternoon, an outfit designed for optimal comfort and movement destined for an idyllic summer setting will never go amiss. Don’t forget to capture your memories from day to night with the OPPO Find X5 Pro with 4K Ultra Night Video and Hasselblad Camera for mobile.

1. Maggie Marilyn Run Away With Me dress, $795. 2. Aje Romance Bucket Hat, $145. 3. Valentino sunglasses, $1,189 from Faradays Store. 4. Deadly Ponies Ripple Mini Croc bag, $599. 5. Meadowlark Baroque pearl necklace, $409. 6. Mi Piaci Circe Slides, $260.

On the move

Chase flights and pavements in easy breezy style. You might surprise yourself just how often you reach for these supremely stylish and oh-so comfortable essentials. Plus, having these pieces makes it easy to dress down other outfits in your holiday capsule for plenty of wardrobe options. Our go-to accessory? The OPPO Enco Free 2 True Wireless Noise Cancelling Earbuds.

1. Camilla and Marc Teba Pant, $420. 2. Henne Seamless Sante Crop, $69 and Sara Legging, $89. 3. P.E Nation Sierra jacket, $357. 4. Adidas x Gucci socks, $395. 5. Alex Arigato Marathon Runners, $672.

Lazy day lounging

Some say it’s not a holiday unless you spend at least one day of your sojourn sleeping in and prioritising rest above all else. You’ll find us tucked up reading an ebook or scrolling the news with a coffee in hand on the OPPO Pad Air. This lightweight tablet has a 2K display for immersive entertainment and a battery big enough to tackle up to 15 hours of video calls.

1. Camilla and Marc Catalina Mini Robe, $720. 2. Gucci GG Tulle Lingerie Set, $1,515. 3. La Tribe Cross Over Sheepy Slipper, $119. 4. Jasmin Sparrow Petra Earrings, $520. 5. Acne Studios Summer Alpaca Polo Sweater, $598 from Workshop. 6. Maison Margiela Lazy Sunday Morning EDT 100ml, $201 from Mecca.

Beach Bound

When our summer sunshine beams down, cooling down at the pool, beach, or lake will pull rank on the agenda. From this season’s most sought-after accessories through to swimwear favourites, we’ve handpicked the pieces you need to pack on your holiday. Oh, and don’t forget to capture your memories with the water and dust resistant OPPO Find X5 Pro!

1. Peony Swimwear  Verde One Shoulder one piece, $240. 2. Citta Moroccan Basket, $55. 3. Caitlin Crisp Sweetheart Shirt, $365. 4. Henne Bucket Hat, $129. 5. Lexxola Jordy sunglasses, $432 from Net-a-porter. 6. Baina Erin Pool Towel, $130. 7. Birkenstock Arizona Eva Popcorn, $100.
