On the plane

Stay cosy during fridge-like temperatures with a wool blend wrap or oversized cardigan. Wear relaxed fit jeans for comfort and pack some warm socks for chilly feet.

A city break doesn’t require 15 bikini options! Go for a versatile swimsuit and easy cover-up for poolside lunches and cocktail hour. Add shades and embellished sandals for a luxe finish.
