Whether you have a break on the beach planned soon to escape the cold weather or boarding the plane is a distant dream, thinking about what to take away with you can be a pain. You need to put together your outfits for the day and evening, as well as taking into account that the sunshine might temporarily hide away and rain might even make an appearance! This is where a capsule wardrobe is going to be your savior – but what is it? The term first came about in the 1970s, invented by a London boutique owner called Susie Faux. It is a collection of your most essential items of clothing that will not go out of fashion. It is usually applied to your whole collection of clothes, but there’s no reason why you can’t have one for your holiday clothing! In fact, with suitcases only holding so many items, and airlines allowing you a limited weight of luggage, it is a perfect solution to your packing woes. So, what makes up the best beach capsule wardrobe?
For those scorching days when you’re working on your tan, a comfortable and flattering bikini or swimsuits is a must-have. Your essential bikini should have a deep triangle shape top which gives the best coverage. A tank top is the most flexible, whether you are taking a stroll along the seafront, or if you are laying on the sand soaking up the rays. This is because you can always untie the straps when they aren’t needed to avoid pesky tan lines. If you prefer a swimsuit, choose a style that you would feel most comfortable wearing. Bear in mind that if you are planning on spending most of the day in the sun, you will want the material to be breathable to avoid getting overheated. Away from the beach, there are plenty of options on what to wear. Think about including a maximum of two skirts, two pairs of shorts, two dresses, a cover up, and a pair of pants to cover all bases. It might seem like a tough choice, but remember that you can always accessorize your outfits! Don’t forget that some restaurants and bars will not want you to be in cover up – pop a couple of lightweight custom tank tops in your case just to be prepared.
Once the sun goes down and it gets a bit chilly, a pretty maxi dresses and cardigan won’t go amiss. Alternatively, a patterned cocktail dress and a cover-up make for a stylish ensemble during an evening meal. Remember that you can always mix up your clothing items to create a new look for each evening, or dress up the items you have worn during the day with layers and accessories. Remember that most resorts will have laundry facilities, so for a two-week trip, you don’t really need 14 different outfits!
