Seven Summer Holiday Staples

Whether you’re jetting off to an exotic location or having a great British seaside break, getting together your summer holiday wardrobe staples can be a little bit stressful! By the time you’ve laid out your vast collection of clothes, hats, sarongs, toiletries, shoes and jewellery on the bed there is little hope of choosing a capsule wardrobe, let alone squeezing your spoils into your miniscule suitcase! ( – damn you miniscule baggage allowance!)

What’s more, all those changing looks and trends and the fact that some of your beachwear dates back to circa 1999 can be a bit disconcerting! Where do you start? Gulp! Well, Perfection has scoured the latest summer looks and trends along with some of our favourite high street retailers to help you come up with seven staples for your summer holiday wardrobe! Here’s what we’ll be packing for our jollies!

1.Denim Cut Offs - A true summer holiday staple, wherever you may be holidaying! Refresh a whole host of summer tops with this one item! Choose the right length, cut and colour for your unique body shape. You really don’t have to be Daisy Duke to wear denim shorts!
