Holidays can come in all shapes and sizes, from romantic city breaks to beachside escapes, and each individual trip needs accessories as unique as it is. When space is at a premium, packing light is an essential skill so let this guide help you decide what should make your suitcase shortlist, from crossbody bags to wedges we've got packing down to a fine art.
Whether starting your journey at a train station or checking in at the airport, comfort is a must. Long haul or short, look to a slip-on moccasin like Petra. This unstructured style is crafted from the softest grey nappa leather and features an intrecciato woven upper. The slip-on silhouette will help you glide through security with ease and remains smart enough for an upgrade. We love to wear ours with cropped jeans and a navy blazer.

Roomy enough for a laptop or the latest paperback blockbuster, this bag will store enough essentials for even the longest flight.

For sun-drenched beach holidays, choose our sunshine yellow sandal Bleeker. This flat sandal is luxuriously crafted from a combination of textured leather and suede. The slider design is perfect for slipping on and off as you head from sun lounger to beach bar. Partner yours with neutral tones and gold jewellery.

Summer is a great time to visit a romantic city. To meander around cobbled streets and visit marbled piazzas a comfortable shoe is a must. The gladiator-inspired Coin It flat sandal will keep you looking and feeling cool, and the sprinkling of studs ensures this style is dressy enough to go from a gallery opening to dinner.

Long strolls around a city requires hands to be kept free, ready for hand holding or ice cream eating. Pack a crossbody bag like the glamorous Pinnixbody, essentials for this type of trip. The bag is crafted from luxurious quilted nude nappa leather, neutral enough to match your entire suitcase. A grab handle ensures this style can be carried in the hand or can be worn across the body. Our Pinnixbody style has a perfectly placed pocket on the front to keep your phone readily accessible for your next Instagram post.

If a big part of your holiday is dressing up after dark, you will need a warm-weather appropriate shoe for the occasion. Look to our lightweight Pukka-Up wedge sandal. The shimmering glitter fabric can paradoxically be worn as a neutral and will match everything in your suitcase. This vertiginous wedge will dress up any outfit, we love to wear ours teamed with a pair of tailored shorts and a sun-downer.

Delicate in design, this bag will look en-point with wedges or courts alike.

If for you, the answer to a fun-filled holiday is a bustling music festival, either home or abroad, you will need to invest in chic yet functional styles. For dancing and walking between stages at a festival, comfort is paramount, we recommend a sneaker like our Bow Wow. This low-top design is crafted from the softest white nappa leather and has been embellished with a sparkling bejewelled bow trim. We love to continue the sparkle by wearing heaps of body glitter and face jewels.

When dancing and partying, a big bag can become cumbersome, the answer is a crossbody back like the matching Bow Wow. This luxurious style has the same bow trim and is capacious enough for all festival essentials, think phone, card and the all-important hand-sanitizer. As well as glitter-galore we love to complete our festival attire with a pair of denim shorts and plenty of fringing.
