Every year, upon returning from holidays, we remark without fail on the fact that we wore the same two or three things over and over again, leaving the rest of our packing untouched, rendered little more than redundant baggage to be lugged from train to airport to taxi. What we ought to have learned by now is that whilst we might live in the same clothes for a week or two, judiciously packed accessories are the thing that really switch up our look.

To that end, shoes, bags, sunglasses, scarves and jewellery constitute our new essential packing, the pieces that ensure true holiday wardrobe versatility. Take our advice and shop our high street holiday accessories edit – you can thank us later as you waft from beach to bar to dinner seamlessly, just adding or subtracting the details as you go.
