Holiday Suitcase Essentials

School is out, the sun is out and that can only mean one thing... SUMMER HOLIDAYS! Your summer holiday is something you spend your days looking forward to, and your nights dreaming of!


But when you remember you have to pack that suitcase, thats' when things get a little bit stressful! Packing that Summer holiday suitcase is a daunting task, but we here at Style Boutique are going to help you put together a well-curated holiday wardrobe. To help you out, we've put together a list of holiday suitcase essentials that are perfect for any summer getaway.


Starting off with the basics, a swimsuit. Opt for a style that flatters your body type, whether that's a one-piece, a bikini, or a tankini the options are endless. Don't be afraid to show off your midsection! Wear that bikini if you want to. Swimwear isn't the same as it used to be, there are so many options now for every body type! If you are conscious about your tummy but still want to wear a bikini, you can get high wasted shorts that show off a little tummy without showing all your tummy! Don't Love your arms? No problem get an off the shoulder top that covers those little unflattering areas! Or you can throw all caution to the wind and wear what ever you want because it is your holiday. Oh, and don't forget a cover-up for when you're lounging by the pool or on the beach.


A pair of comfortable and stylish sandals is also a must-have. Choose a neutral colour that will match all of your outfits, and make sure they're comfortable enough to wear for long walks. If you cant pick a pair that ticks both box's take two! Surly a pair of sandals cant take up that much room! Or if you are anything like me you might want to take a few pairs of crocs, because comfort is key! 


Next up, a crossbody bag or a tote is perfect for carrying all of your essentials while you're out and about. Opt for a style with multiple compartments to keep your belongings organised and secure. Why not pick a bag that will match your shoes! A neutral brown or black that will go with EVERY OUTFIT!


Summertime brings forth sunny days filled with warmth and joy, but it's essential to prioritise sun protection to safeguard our skin from harmful UV rays. The sun's rays can be both revitalising and damaging, making it crucial to take precautionary measures. Applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a high SPF, preferably 30 or above, is the first line of defence. Don't forget to generously apply it to all exposed areas, including the face, neck, arms, and legs. Wearing protective clothing like wide-brimmed hats, sunglasses, and lightweight, long-sleeved garments can provide an extra layer of defence. Seeking shade during peak hours, usually between 10 am and 4 pm when the sun's rays are strongest, can also reduce exposure. Remember, prioritising sun protection ensures not only a safe and enjoyable summer but also maintains the health and radiance of your skin for years to come.
