Days by the pool, nights spent in restaurants, exploring beautiful wineries, coastlines, or historic towns. With family, friends, partners or solo, for relaxation, adventure, or a mixture of both – going on holidays sounds dreamy right!? Working out what to pack…not so much. But with our 8 holiday must haves each under $100, packing for your holidays will be a breeze (like Hawaiian air going through the palm trees), and styling your holiday outfits as easy as ordering that first cocktail at the swim up bar.
A little black dress is a holiday outfit must have.
Always an iconic wardrobe staple, a good little black dress will be chic and comfortable, simple but striking. The Jamie Halter Neck dress fits the brief with a flattering trapeze silhouette and feminine ruffle neckline. It has the versatility of a casual beach dress or dinner outfit, in a midi length with a hi-lo hemline. A perfect pick for showing off your sun kissed shoulders, with a sash belt to create the shape that suits you best – no holiday suitcase is complete without an LBD!
Every holiday suitcase needs a seamless ‘day to night’ outfit.
When you’re off for a day of shopping and adventuring, but booked in for 5pm wine and nibbles, you need a comfortable outfit that is as practical as it is playful. Enter, the Victoria Playsuit in black, navy, burgundy or grey marle. With handy pockets, a soft elasticised waist, and a flattering round neckline, it makes the best outfit for a day of walking waterfalls, or shopping malls. Then, when the sun starts to set, slide the short sleeves down for an off the shoulder look, and add a sash belt to accentuate a feminine shape. From the beach to the bar in seconds – and comfort every step of the way.
Chloe – the comfort top for any occasion.
With a round neckline and relaxed fit, you will feel breezy, beautiful and brunch ready, in the Chloe Short Sleeve Bamboo Top. Available in 6 different colours for multiple outfit looks, Chloe is perfectly paired with the Alexa wide leg pants or Penelope skirt, for versatile, chic and comfortable looks while on holidays or for your day to day style.
Don’t forget your skin on holidays.
It’s easy to get caught up with the excitement of picking stylish holiday outfits and then end up forgetting that our skin still needs care way from home too. In the mornings, make sure you are still applying your SPF 50+, and no matter how busy your day of holiday making was, always save some energy for cleansing and hydrating before bedtime. We love the Raw Beauty Skincare Daily Hydrating Face Duo to take on trips. The Sunflower Facial Cream Cleanser easily washes away the day without drying out skin, and the Kakadu Plum Hydrating Facial Cream rehydrates and reinvigorates, evening and brightening the skin tone, ready for another day of adventure - after a night of much deserved beauty sleep of course!
Warm climates = cool outfits
While you’re on summer holidays this year, make sure you feel the gorgeous sun on your skin, and stay cool in the thermoregulating bamboo Zoe tiered top. The Zoe bamboo top is an ultra-feminine tiered design for flattering look and will suit all body types, suiting skirts, crops, or our favourite, the Tiffany Shorts for a relaxed and stylish holiday outfit.
Don’t leave home without a throw on and go outfit.
A throw on and go (or ‘TOAG’) is the kind of outfit you can pull on with little effort and know you are guaranteed to look and feel good every time. With the combination of a v-neckline, short sleeves and in a midi length with a hi-lo hemline, the Eleni Midi Dress is the ever-reliable TOAG dress in your wardrobe. Add casual sneakers for a daytime look, or heels, jewels, and a sash belt for night events. After you’ve put this beautiful bamboo dress to work in your wardrobe rotation, you’ll never head off on holidays without Eleni in your suitcase again.
Culotte’s – the classical shape having a resurgence.
Ultra-comfortable pants, with practical pockets, a comfortable elastic waistband, in a 7/8 length, and with the illusion of being a maxi skirt – it’s little wonder the culotte is making a fashion comeback! Our Alexis bamboo culotte is a holiday outfit must have – she’s wide legged, soft, flattering, and crease proof, so she can be pulled on for a dinner date as soon as you arrive at your destination with little drama. Made of breathable bamboo, she’s suitable for any climate, soft enough to wear all day, and created to keep her shape – so she will last a lifetime of holidays.
Busy holidays = tired skin.
Regardless of whether we are adventuring or relaxing, our skin doesn’t always like holidays as much as we do. It could be because of the extra sun, wearing more make up for events, different climates and water, or simply that we aren’t spending as much time on our skin care on holidays. Keep the glow in your skin while you are away, with the Raw Beauty Skin Revival Serum. A powerhouse of bakuchiol oil and sunflower extract – it’s an easy way to show your skin some love and care, without having to bring the entire bathroom cabinet with you. Why not pick up the essentials pack for the best skincare on holidays?
