Kit and Kaboodal Holiday Wardrobe
Whether you’re heading off on a family beach break, sailing off on a cruise or exploring a new city this summer, we have you covered when it comes to your holiday wardrobe! Packing for a summer getaway can be stressful, especially if you’re faced with unpredictable weather. Our style experts have picked out key pieces for the season, with a selection of womens holiday clothes designed to be versatile enough to wear whatever the weather and comfortable enough to wear all day long.
Summer Beach Break
Sometimes a week in the sun is just what you need! Whether you’re heading to your favourite family destination or you’re exploring somewhere new, you need to make sure that you’re comfortable enough to enjoy your surroundings.
Linen is a great choice for those heading to hot climates, the material will keep you cool as you explore plus it’s versatile enough to wear both day and night. A lightweight linen dress is ideal for wearing over the top of your swimwear during the day before accessorising with statement jewellery on an evening. To stay cool (and to show off your holiday tan!) choose a classic white linen dress such as the Made in Italy Susa or Scandicci style, both perfect for the summer. If you’re planning on doing a lot of sightseeing, the right footwear is essential. We love wearing our statement sequin espadrilles during the daytime, these shoes perfectly balance style and comfort and the extra sparkle will give you that holiday feeling! If you’re looking for the right pair of shoes for an evening meal, why risk holiday blisters? A wedge sandal is a great choice for an evening and will look perfect paired with your favourite linen dress.
Is there a better excuse for getting glammed up than a luxurious cruise? If you’re lucky enough to be sailing away this summer, you want to make sure you have a suitcase full of statement pieces that will keep you looking your best and feeling your best in the summer heat.
For daytime wear, you want to look sophisticated whilst also remaining comfortable. Our white stretch skinny jeans are ideal for keeping you cool as you take a stroll along the deck or disembark to explore your next destination. Using your jeans as a base, you can easily create a wide range of outfits with lightweight vest tops. Opt for a longer style in soft pastel colours and pair with flat sandals for a look that will never go out of fashion.
Once the sun goes down, you can easily change into a sophisticated evening look with our of our beautiful long dresses. Available in a range of colours and styles, our dresses are designed to skim the figure, giving you a flattering silhouette that’s ideal for a relaxing holiday evening. Pair with our comfortable heel sandals and your favourite jewellery to create a classic cruise look.
If you love exploring new cultures and spending your days exploring new cities, a summer city break is a perfect choice. Whether you stay in the UK or head into Europe to discover one of the many beautiful city destinations, you need to make sure that you’re fully prepared for an action-packed day taking in the sights. If you’re heading away for a weekend, chances are you’re not going to want to take a big suitcase! A weekend bag or small suitcase should be enough to take everything you need, however, it does pay to be smart with your packing!
A pair of leggings or stretch skinny jeans is a must for a city break, not only will they keep you comfortable as your walk around the city – they’re also versatile enough to pair with tops, dresses, tunics and more. Pack 1-2 tunics to wear during the day before swapping for a long length vest top or even one of our Kit and Kaboodal dresses for the evening if you love the layered look. City breaks are ideal for those looking to hit their ‘step’ target for the day but you need to make sure your footwear is up to the task! A pair of sneakers in an on-trend metallic shade will keep your feet comfortable and supported whilst also stylish enough to wear for drinks on an evening.
Womens Holiday Clothes at Kit and Kaboodal
We asked the Kit and Kaboodal team for their top tips to help you create the perfect summer holiday wardrobe.
- Linen is a great choice for holidays but many people shy away from packing it as they feel it will crease easily in the suitcase. Our tip is to make sure your suitcase isn’t jam-packed when you place your linen garments inside, wrap them in tissue paper or a plastic clothes bag and hang your linen garments up as soon as you reach your destination!
- Don’t forget your knitwear! Even if you’re heading to an island paradise, chances are it will get chilly on an evening. Pack a lightweight cardigan or jacket to wear on an evening once the temperatures drop.
- Resist the urge to overpack. Plan your outfits in advance and take ‘essential’ items that can be worn with a wide range of other items to save space in your suitcase.
- Don’t compromise on comfort. If you’re heading away on a sightseeing break, you need to make sure your feet don’t pay the price. Opt for flat sandals or sneakers during the day and swap heels for stylish wedges.
