You know you’ve been there…the thousand last-minute errands before you head off on your holiday. The organising, the waxing and wardrobe planning…as if planning the holiday wasn’t stressful enough!

But don’t worry, we’re here to help – at least in the wardrobe department. Now that summer is just round the corner, we thought of reminding you of a few summer essentials. A truly efficient holiday wardrobe must include pieces that are versatile and can be worn more than once. As compiled from Pinkvilla, here is a checklist of all the things you should get before you head for that summer escapade. Happy holidays!

A floppy hat: We really cannot stress the importance of this one enough! Not only will a hat shelter you from the harsh summer sun, it will also add an ultra-chic touch to your holiday ensemble. This one’s a must!

Trusty sunnies: These will come even more in handy when you get tired of sightseeing and start looking groggy. Simply throw on your shades and look flawless in all your vacation pictures.

Quirky scarf: From covering your head or styling your outfit to being a cool new accessory for your chic vacay hairstyles, there is nothing a scarf cannot do!

Hoops: You might think we’re a little two thousand and late but guess what? Hoops aren’t as out of date as you might think. A pair of hoops can complement every face cut and also make for the perfect multi-purpose accessory to pack in your suitcase.

A black leather jacket:

Of course, this will come in handy only if you’re visiting a relatively cooler place but nothing can add oomph to your outfit like a slinky black leather jacket. It can literally take you from looking like a zero to hundred and is practical at the same time. Need we say more?

T-shirts: For obvious reasons, you’re gonna need at least a couple of basic tees. Pick neutral colours like black, navy and white that can be worn under your jumpsuit or with floaty trousers or a slip dress.

Off-shoulder tops:

We would recommend this trendy, feminine style even if you aren’t going on holiday. By simply styling a Bardot neckline right, you can easily take an outfit from day to night. Talk about being versatile.

A floating maxi dress: This particular clothing item is quite a multi-tasker. Going out sightseeing during the day? Wear a maxi dress, styled with a denim jacket and the floppy hat. Heading for a night out? Pair your dress with red lips and a cute up-do. There is just no going wrong with this easy and breezy style staple.

Palazzos: A pair of solid-coloured or printed palazzo pants is another must for your summer wardrobe. They’re ideal for hectic schedules and if styled right, can be worn in multiple different ways.

White sneakers: Anyone who follows the latest fashion trends even a little bit will know just how in white sneakers are these days. Celebrities and fashion influencers have been pairing them with jeans, skirts and even dresses! But if you can’t get your hands on a pair of Adidas Superstars, just invest in plain white shoes. They’re super comfy to walk in and look great under any outfit.

Studded chappals:

Sneakers not your thing? That’s cool. There are plenty of stylish slippers to choose from too. Swap your tacky flip flops for a pretty pair of studded sliders instead. You’ll be thanking us for this later.Read more at:mermaid formal dresses
