Got a case of winter wanderlust? Prepare to go coastal, says Annmarie O’Connor.
Escaping to warmer climes has multiple benefits: sun, sea, sand and a 10kg suitcase. Warm weather means a lighter livery and with that no pesky excess baggage.
Whether a beach comber, resort lover or heat seeker, a small holiday holdall is all you need.
Combine multi-taskers that do double duty like kaftans, sarongs and bikinis with functional fashion pieces like hats, sunglasses and luxe sandals for a truly tropical trousseau.
Space saver tip! Swap heavy jewellery for embellished separates or bold patterns.
4-in-1? A sarong moonlights as a beach cover, halter neck top, turban and bandeau dress with a few simple knots.
