Need a Holiday? 13 Items You Actually Need for Every Type of Break



Whether you're off on a weekend trip, a weeklong holiday to France or a fancy long-haul exotic break, there are some pieces that you'll want to take with you wherever your holiday destination of choice might be. As someone who's dedicated to packing as little as possible, I know you really can get away with wearing only a few items on holiday. All you need to do is be realistic about the pieces that you often bring but never end up wearing.

I know you love those hot-pink palazzo pants, but will you wear them more than once on a week's holiday? Instead, I've narrowed down 13 pieces you'll wear on repeat for the ultimate travel capsule wardrobe (for everything else, see our holiday packing list here too). I've even given you tips on how to style each piece different ways so you can see just how versatile these items are. You might even be able to get away with just a carry-on, which means you'll be off the plane quicker and straight to the pool with Aperol spritz in hand.
