We are coming into the colder weather, and Australian’s can’t stand winter, so it’s time to get out of here and go on holidays!  Travelling is all about immersing yourself in each destination you go to, the people, the food, and of course the fashion. Destination attire should show off your personal style, combined with practicality and comfort. Here are a few tips on what essentials you should always have with you in your suitcase:

A hat

Instead of packing five different coloured hats to go with each of your outfits, take one that is basic and neutral coloured. In that beautiful sunny weather it will be the perfect accessory. Not only is it guarding you from that summer sun, it is stylish, making any outfit fabulous.

Red lipstick

Ladies, we all know the basics to a beauty kit; foundation, eyeliner, mascara, power and bronzer, but one thing we forget is that lipstick that makes our favourite dress really pop. When going out for a drink or even just dinner, a lovely bright red lipstick will add that subtle statement.

Crossover bag

This is one of the most important accessories when travelling, the perfect over the shoulder bag will be used everyday of your trip. It will match all outfits, not be too heavy or bulky, safe from pickpockets overseas, big enough to fit all your essentials in (wallet, keys/hotel card, phone and sunscreen) but small enough to be convenient in large crowds.

Denim shorts

The perfect pair of denim shorts will make your holiday easy and care free, pack what you feel will be appropriate for shopping, sightseeing activities and the beach. These shorts will be your lifesaver; they can be dressed down or dressed up, whatever you are doing in the hot weather denim shorts will be your go to piece of clothing.

There you have it. Simple tips to help you have a comfortable, relaxed and fun trip. Safe Travels!
