What’s your number one tip for compiling a capsule holiday wardrobe?

Holidays are the best time: a time to let your hair down, reset, and indulge in your personal luxuries. Adapt your capsule wardrobe to your holiday style. Essential pieces are those that make you happy, reflect your mood, and protect you from the sun.

How would you define your vacation wardrobe style?

My capsule holiday wardrobe reflects summer days with the family and nights with friends. I love a day-to-night dress that I can wear with ease in the morning to start my day, but also jazz up with great statement jewellery pieces at night-time. In summer I opt for comfort and light fabrics, paired with great flats and sandals. I often go out in the evening to have dinner with friends and end up dancing barefoot!

What’s your number one tip for compiling a capsule holiday wardrobe?

Think about where you are going and try and pick a concept/style which will suit your location. I also consider the kind of activities I will be doing.

How would you define your vacation wardrobe style?

Vacation style depends on where I am going.  For a trip to the Amalfi Coast, for example, I would choose something soft and romantic, whereas for a trip to Ibiza I might go for more daring options!

What’s your number one tip for compiling a capsule holiday wardrobe?

It’s useful to choose a colour palette of say three or four colours that all work together so you can mix-and-match. Always pack a pair of gold sandals for evening, they go with everything!

Relaxed and laid back, but always with a touch of exuberance.

What’s your number one tip for compiling a capsule holiday wardrobe?On vacation, I love a crisp button-up shirt and breezy two-pieces or dresses. I like anything that’s versatile and can be mixed-and-matched with different styles, so that getting dressed on vacation is minimal and easy. I think flat sandals and light fabrics are key. We’ve just launched swimwear, and the Jace One Piece is my new must-have for any vacation.

How would you define your vacation wardrobe style?

Generally, my wardrobe is built to be mixed-and-matched. I recently went to Mexico with my family and I found myself reaching for those breathable, light fabrics that you can easily wear during the day to keep cool, and dress up for dinner in the evenings. Our Resort collection is also designed to mix- and-match. I love pairing the Carrie Pant with our new Rosa Bikini top for an easy, relaxed daytime look.
