Top tips for packing 

  1. Sort your clothes into outfits!C13 top tip that can save you time and bag you some extra room in your suitcase is to pack your suitcase in outfits. It sounds simple, but it is so easy to just throw in lots of shorts and t-shirts and hope for the best, but, by trying on all of your holiday clothes beforehand and pairing them into outfits for different occasions, you will create a winning wardrobe.
  2. Always pack light, everyone is guilty at some point of filling your suitcase to the brim then only wearing half of what you’ve packed throughout the whole holiday. Only take with you the absolute essentials for your holiday and be realistic about what you will actually wear when you arrive, if you’re struggling narrowing this down, jotting down a rough guide of your itinerary and the outfits you’ll need for those is a great place to start
  3. Comfort is king and should be your main priority. No matter what holiday destination you’re travelling to or activities you have planned, ensuring that the clothes and footwear you pack are comfortable is essential to a successful trip. A simple and comfortable pair of designer shorts and t-shirt combination can be just as stylish for men as it is practical. Pack your trusted trainers or invest in a supportive sandal, footwear is the most important thing to get right on holiday, to avoid any unwanted blisters.
  4. Check the weather forecast, there’s no worse feeling than turning up to your holiday destination and seeing nothing but clouds and rain. Depending on the time of year and location of your holiday, there’s a possibility that some days won’t be as bright and sunny as first anticipated. You may need to pack some longer layers to stay protected against the elements during your stay.
