The 29 Pieces Fashion Editors Actually Take on Their Summer Holiday

We've practically spent the last five months thinking about adventures to warmer climates. The feeling of hot air as you step off the aeroplane, the beachy hair, sandy toes and no sense of what time (or day) it is are things we long for. Add to this the selection of summery outfits ready to be rolled into a case and it's officially the holiday season.

Our fashion editors have a tip to finding the perfect looks, and it's all about a one-stop shop rather that searching here, there and everywhere. is one of those online destinations that has so many amazing must-have pieces for every possible occasion, but right now, the site has something called the Grand Tour Italy edit, and it will literally pack your suitcase for you.

Summer Holiday Matchesfashion Edit: Marie-Louise Sciò


Marie-Louise Sciò proves that a minidress and mules is the ultimate summer evening look. 

This list has been carefully curated by Marie-Louise Sciò, CEO and creative director of Italian Pellicano Hotels Group, and there's literally no one better informed or chicer to influence our summer outfit choices. The edit celebrates travel, and whether you're heading to Italy or somewhere further afield, you're guaranteed to find both the essentials and the super-fun additions for your vacay.

With an impressive selection of holiday beauties from It brands including Cult Gaia, Jacquemus, Dodo Bar Or and Marysia, we've somehow managed to edit things down even further to (just!) 29 items our editors would genuinely like to pop in their cases and wear on repeat in the sun, from beach-ready dresses to statement swimwear and go-with-everything sandals.
