Making a splash: Keeping costs low with the ultimate holiday capsule wardrobe
Ah, the scent of sea breeze, piña colada and factor 50 is lingering in the air – summer is back in full force!
Family holiday on the agenda? We bet that you can’t wait to bask in some serious UVs in paradise and spend some well-earned quality time with your little ones. However, the stress of knowing what to pack for the whole family – while still staying well within those pesky baggage weight limits – can be the challenge of the century.
Keep costs low and holiday excitement levels high with our holiday capsule wardrobe suggestions that will wow your tribe this season.
Swimwear is a summer staple for every island goddess
Let’s be real. Is a holiday even a holiday if you don’t pack a tropical-print ‘kini?
Whether you’ve got a staycation or an all-inclusive getaway in your calendar, a light-coloured style with a bold print is ideal to show off that tan (even if it is from a bottle!)
Palm-tree couture for seriously cool dads
The first step towards a holiday capsule wardrobe that’ll give dad’s pals major style envy, is to pick a sleek pair of chino shorts and build everything else around them – piece of cake!
Balance out the minimalistic vibe of the shorts with a tee in a funky print; feel free to experiment with wild, Hawaiian prints and palm-tree designs for a beach-ready look.
Pastels and brights for your little lady
Pastel hues and light shades are a fave choice for the warmer months – and we are totally obsessed.
If your little girl just adores everything pink, why not treat her to a tonal look that she’ll love?
This lemon print bikini is perfect for day-time dawdles and cooling off in the sea under the heat of the midday sun. Keep a pair of matching denim shorts and baseball cap in the family beach bag for the cutest cover-up outfit on the island!
Combine sunshine safety with style and bring along a pair of funky sunglasses to complement the dainty blush tones.
Baby shark do do do…
If your young lad often escapes the mandatory sun cream smearing session before he delves into the deep blue sea, a lime t-shirt and paint splat shorts will keep him looking and feeling cool under the scorching sun.
A selection of sea-themed goodies is bound to get thumbs-up approval too; a set of basic t-shirts are unbeatable beach day cover-ups.
Does your son seem to think he could beat Jaws himself in an ocean duel? He’ll love splashing around in shark-themed flip-flops, ideal for family fun in the sun.
