Travel has been a faraway dream in the past few years, but with restrictions loosening and our favourite destinations open again, the next great escape is nigh.
Whether you’re planning to kick back and relax or take the trail less shredded, there’s one thing every holiday spot has in common: the need for travel essentials. What you pack can make or break a getaway, regardless of activity or occasion.
Searching for the elusive essentials we keep swearing by? Look no further - we’ve got you covered with picks and post-pandemic items. Read on to find out the carry-on must-haves we recommend for every type of holiday.
Looking to dive into the idyllic waters of Cancun or the tropical depths of Koh Samui? There’s no better way to fully bask in the beauty of open blue seas, postcard-perfect shores, and cloudless skies than a resort-ready look. All you need to capture that summer essence are new swimwear, a pair of swanky sunnies, a trusty tote, and the almighty sunscreen.
Down to earth
For the outdoorsmen in search of stunning views, there are few trails as scenic and satisfying as the Tour du Mont Blanc or the Pacific Crest Trail. But before embarking on your upcoming odyssey, equip yourself with some activewear picks that blend style with functionality seamlessly. And don’t forget your travel kit - panoramic views are great and all, but comfort (and hygiene) should always take precedence.
Be it a thrill-seeking adrenaline junkie looking for some off-piste action or a dedicated reveller of the après-ski scene, legendary alpine kingdoms like Niseko and Val Gardena have a place for everyone. Whether you’re carving clean tracks or sipping spirits, you can bet your boots that the right puffers and woolly knits will make you the pinnacle of chalet chic.
Living it up
City-dwellers with a penchant for cosmopolitan allures and nightlife grandeurs will find the likes of London, Bangkok, or Seoul familiar and refreshing. In these concrete jungles full of possibilities, there’s no guarantee where your next pitstop will be. Street food after fine dining? Clubbing after high-end shopping? Fitting in anywhere and everywhere is a cakewalk when you have a versatile, evergreen ensemble.
