Dream holiday suitcase: the ultimate holiday capsule
It is that time of the year when many of us are heading off on our summer holidays. I am currently looking at an empty suitcase ready to pack for two weeks in Sicily.
My priority is to make sure I will wear everything that I put in my suitcase. I have learned through the years that there is no point lugging high heels and too many glamorous outfits, yet it is important to be able to bring some chic into the mix.
When I head to the Aeolian islands, most of my time is spent swimming in the sea or riding a gommone (dingy). This means I tend to wear flip-flops, bikinis, sarongs and big hats all day long. But then there is the required evening outfit: elegant for aperitivo, cool for parties.
Sun protection is key, so are good hair products, clever make-up and good pieces of jewelery. Last but not least, well-chosen summer reads.
Here is my dream suitcase which includes some 2022 fashion must-haves, skincare I trust and the books I really want to read this summer.
