Planning a holiday while the UK weather thaws out? We don’t blame you. Before you go, make sure you have everything you need for the perfect vacation wardrobe. Easy-to-pack pieces are the name of the game when jetting off for some winter sun, says Mariella Tandy. From vintage and investment pieces to one-off rental heroes, we’ve curated an edit of must-haves to pack into your suitcase, so you can look stylish throughout your holiday.

When it comes to considering what to pack for your winter sun holiday, make sure to keep the planet in mind. Re-wearing old clothes is the best way to be sustainable, but if you can’t avoid it then shop consciously at responsible retailers, as well as rental and resale sites.
