Style Advisor: Luxe Vacation Essentials

Taking a holiday has the benefit not only of being the perfect opportunity to wear your best new summer dress, but also of relieving stress – a good enough reason as any to put your out of office on and head to the nearest beach. Holidays are, we are told on good authority, essential to our mental and physical wellbeing. Amen to that. A week of being responsible for nothing more than tanning and slathering on some sun cream sounds pretty appealing to everyone at FLANNELS HQ right now. Whether you’re jetting off to the exclusivity of a tropical resort or are indulging in the homely delights of a British staycation, here are a few holiday essentials for every summer trip. Don’t forget your sun hat.

Not for the first time and certainly not for the last, sandals are top of our summer holiday footwear agenda. Along with sliders, espadrilles and wedges, effortless cool is the word we’d use to describe our ultimate holiday footwear. From beach to bar in one step.


As essentials go, sunglasses are a non-negotiable. Come rain or, hopefully, shine, don’t forget to pack your shades. This season, aviators, oversized, cat eye and skinny frames are in – sure to suit every wardrobe and face shape.
