As the schools shut for Summer, we are all waiting patiently to jet off for our well-deserved holiday. Escaping the wet weather, it’s time to get organised and like most men, it’s a last-minute job.
So here to help you keep your partner happy, use our guide to help you select staples so you can enjoy your holiday with no wardrobe stress. Here are our recommended staples needed for a man’s holiday wardrobe…
Assessing Your Travel Itinerary and Activities
You know what type of holiday you have booked, well we hope you do. You need to access what you need. Will you be eating out for dinner every evening? Are you adventurous and love climbing, hiking or outdoor activities when you are away, or are you just going to sit around the pool all day? Once you have identified a mini list of what you will be doing start to plan your outfits accordingly.
Identifying Your Personal Style Preferences
Everyone has their own style, do you prefer a pop of colour or even a Hawaiian print on vacation? Or are you buying into the resort trends with more neutral tones and linen, classic pieces? It can be nice to have a little mix between the two. More classic pieces that you know you will be able to wear over and over again but also a great summery shirt that can really get you in the spirit.
If you know you catch the sun, then a bright colour such as green or orange will always complement your skin tone. If you are fair-haired or fair in complexion, navy, olive green and cream colours will give you that resort luxury aesthetic without washing you out.
The Core Essentials: Must-Have Pieces for Every Man
- The Perfect Pair of Pants
Accessing the trousers and shorts you take on holiday makes a massive difference if you have just a few key pairs. Linen trousers or smarter canvas pants are great for on holiday to provide you with that smarter evening-ready staple. Matching your style to the warmer weather, you need might want a chino in a beige colour to compliment your holiday wardrobe colours.
If you do go for a classic pair of jeans, a classic straight-leg style is great with forgiving stretch denim that allows the legs to breathe. Don’t forget a travel-ready pair of pants as well such as some cotton shorts or tracksuit bottoms. If it’s an early flight or you are managing young children make sure you think about comfort for your long journey.
