How to Get a Whole New Holiday Wardrobe for Less Than £250

Emma Spedding

Every week there seems to be a new swimwear or beachwear brand that is making us toy with the idea of dropping a couple hundred pounds on one swimsuit. But flights, accommodation and tapas can be expensive enough, let alone when you factor in the fact that you haven't bought a bikini in two years and don't own any acceptable beach cover-ups.

Thankfully, the high street has really upped its swimwear game this summer, meaning you really can get a whole new holiday suitcase of clothes for less than £250. We have put together the perfect capsule packing list so you can spend more time searching for the best Aperol Spritz in town.
