Get Summer Ready with our Top 5 Holiday Essentials!
The summer vibe is loud and proud in 2022, and we’re here to help you grab those holiday essentials for an epic return to travel. Elevate your summer with some of the biggest brands in Eldon Square. Check out below some of our recommendations for holiday must-haves so you can hit the airport runway in style!
1. Get Packing
Before packing, there are a few items we need in place to set us up. A suitcase is an essential requirement for any holiday-goer, and the right one should be stylish, secure, and spacious enough for souvenirs. To get started, John Lewis & Partners offers a fantastic variety of cases for every travel style, from a classic Eastpak Transit Cabin Case in Black Denim (£110) for lighter packers to the seriously large American Tourister Soundbox Large Suitcase (£185). Travel cubes (£12.99) are also an excellent tool for keeping your case organised and your possessions secure, and John Lewis & Partners has just the set!
2: Beach Style
A flight out of the UK is an opportunity to indulge in the sunshine, heat, and golden coasts. For a beach holiday, we recommend a classic kaftan from Accessorize (from £24.50) or, for a more glamorous look, a playsuit or maxi dress from New Look would be perfect.
Ready for the sunshine? Catch a tan and take a dip in an H&M lined bandeau bikini top (£12.99) with matching high waist bikini bottoms (£9.99). The guys should grab Hollister’s classic hybrid swim shorts (£35) for effortless style and pair them with a tropical shirt from AllSaints.
3: Night Life
It is time to party! River Island has everything you need for a dinner date or clubbing including sequin shorts, animal print dresses, colourful blazers and more. KIKO Milano offers high-quality cosmetics and the ultimate holiday makeup to complete your look. The Holiday Gems collection provides the top selection of beauty products, from eye masks to colour palettes. The boys should pair a Jack Wills classic polo (£34.99) with slim jeans (£60) for a relaxed and sophisticated summer look.
4: Hair & Skincare
Staying safe in the sun is a priority in travel self-care, as is having all our favourite beauty brands at hand to keep our hair and skin in the best condition. Boots offers a wide range of travel-size holiday sets, including Drunk Elephant Travel Duo Bars (£19).
Molton Brown’s The Daring Adventurer Mini Travel Bag (£28) for men and The Exquisite Escapist Mini Travel Bag (£28) for women is the perfect collection of travel essentials. Stylish and compact, this is an all-encompassing eight-piece travel set encased in a signature Travel Bag made from recycled materials.
5: Sun Protection
One of the most critical holiday essentials, sun protection, deserves a section all to itself. Holland and Barrett supply a fantastic range of products, including Alba Botanica Sensitive Mineral Fragrance-Free SPF 30 Sunscreen 113g (£11.99) for a compact option. The skin on your face is sensitive and often the most exposed to the sun, so be sure to pack Vitamin E Day Lotion SPF30 (£16) from The Body Shop.
