Genius holiday packing tips start with pairing items with each other to minimise the risk of packing a full new outfit for every day. Mix and matching at its finest makes the whole process more pleasant, less time consuming and when you arrive at your destination you don’t even have the chance to thoroughly pore over what you packed to create an outfit for the day. This season, we’re all about combining these two items together for minimal effort and maximum efficiency – think a one-piece swimsuit worn with the bottom of your choice. Whether a pair of straight leg jeans or a satin midi skirt, we’ve got the ultimate look to take you from the office to the beach.
For when the days run too short and ruffled floral tops aren’t your go-to choice, opt for swimwear as daywear. One-piece swimsuits have never looked chicer, and if they can look this good seaside, there’s no reason why you can’t make it work in the city. What’s more, they’re as comfortable as a bodysuit and make for a laid-back off duty look that’s hard to resist. Picture a summer Friday, you’re ready to leave the office and head off into the weekend – wear this pair of blue jeans and top it with this swimwear and all you’ll need to do is take off the bottom before jumping into the pool upon arrival. Moreover, if air conditioning isn’t *always* your best friend, you’ll most likely quickly get uneasy if you can feel it blasting through a plane, car or train. And for those moments, swimwear will save you from getting cold on your midriff, and the cropped top will be saved for a future occasion.
Take it from us who swear by travelling in bodysuits year-round, especially on long-haul flights. You’ll never wear a regular t-shirt again and the level of coziness is indescribable. If you wonder which swimsuit to wear in the city – we recommend monochromatic pieces with subtle detailing that can easily pass for a bodysuit. You definitely don’t want to rock a metallic high-waisted number with crochet straps. Save that for the actual beach!
