Putting new sheets on the bed, getting up on Mondays and packing your suitcase – all difficult at first, but worth it in the end. Luckily for you, we’re packing pros and this is our guide on how we’d go about making the most of our pre-holiday prep by engaging in a good ol’ game of travel Tetris.

THE HOLIDAY HOODIE

There are SO many uses for our hoodie, think about it – it could pose as a pillow on those long, bumper-to-bumper car journeys, a cover up against the midday sun or an extra layer when the A.C.’s on too high. It really is our go-to travel companion. Our classic Batsford  or brand-new, cropped Belmonthood hoodie work all year round.

PACK BY #OOTD

On the road, lack of suitcase space means one’s fashion choices are limited. To make sure there’s something for every occasion we pack by planned outfits – fit for adventure, the beach and sun-down shenanigans. Besides, trips are better spent enjoying meals with friends than spending hours deciding what to wear. Ladies, we’d go with the Hazelton Top and Shropshire Shorts so your arms and legs see the sun; gents, try any combination from our winning shorts and T-shirt collections.

PROTECT YOUR TECH

Want to know a trick to keeping your valuables intact? Socks. Slip them into a (preferably) clean pair and it’s as if your treasures are cushioned by bubble wrap. Try these socks, or these. Then pop the protective pouch into your spare shoes to make the most of every centimetre.

WOULD-BE-LOST-WITHOUT

Jack says, keep it simple. Pack the things that go with everything; those versatile must-haves. From denim jackets to simple tees, shop the Essentials Edit for him and for her to find everything you didn’t even realise you needed.

PRETTY LITTLE THINGS

Keep the little things close and under wraps with wash-bags doubled up as grab-bags. Think sun cream, earphones (for use when the chat dies), plasters (there’s always one!) and sunglasses – they’re all  the perfect size to fit into our stylish Wrafton Washbag or Crawford Washbags.
