You have finally booked your long awaited beach holiday this year, but you’re already dreading the packing part – having to carefully choose your perfect outfits for the beach, sightseeing and partying and somehow making them all fit into your suitcase. Every girls nightmare right..?
Fret not, I have you covered..
Have a look at these fashion tips and hacks for when you’re getting ready for your holiday from packing to simple hacks to make your trip that extra bit more enjoyable.
Let’s get started.
Firstly prep prep prep.. Lay all your items on the bed. You should aim to wear everything you pack so try to only take things you love. And remember – accessories can add variety to your outfits and transform them from a day look into a night look.

Pack the heaviest items at the bottom of the suitcase.. One important rule of thumb is to keep all your heavy items packed towards the wheels so that the weight is distributed evenly.
Roll don’t fold.. This will save a great amount of space in your suitcase, it also means you can take more outfits, or have space for all the souvenirs. It will also prevent wrinkles and creases.
Stack your bras together.. Save space and make sure your bras maintain their shape.
Ditch the straightners.. Take a break from your hot styling tools, spritz damp hair with sea salt spray, use a towel to twist it up then sleep on it. In the morning unwrap it and ta-da you have gorgeous beachy waves.
Leggings.. They are a safe and easy option for holidaying. You can wear them on their own or under dresses and skirts, or for your morning run.
Keep your earrings safe.. By placing them together attaching them to buttons.
Put breakables in socks.. Just in case take extra precaution by slipping breakables into a sock. It will also prevent them from scratching.
Capitalise on empty space.. Make sure you look for unused space, like the insides of your shoes, for small essentials like headphones or your purses or your sunglasses.
Pack an empty bag for laundry.. Useful if you need a beach bag for the day, or isolating your dirty laundry for the trip back home. Why not chuck the hotel soap into the bag so that it doesn’t stink up the rest of your clothes.
Pop your cables in an old sunglass case.. It will keep you from misplacing them throughout your holiday.
Wear your bulkiest clothes on the plane.. You’ll be freeing up valuable space in your suitcase.
2 in 1 beauty product.. For lips and cheeks. Two birds one stone.
Now before you get packing, go get your nails done – gel nails are a must on holiday as you won’t have to worry about them chipping.
