Counting down the days till your next beach break? Take a few summer holiday packing tips from Charlotte Hole, vlogger, blogger and all-round Instagram babe.  Vacay vibes, right this way…

1. Statement Swimsuits

Hawaiian Print Swimsuit, £32 | Ombre Printed Fan, £5 | Kayleigh Metal Round Sunglasses, £12 | Livvie Stappy Sandals, £15

The sure-fire way to feel extra this summer? Get your hands on a statement swimsuit, sharpish.  Our gal Charlotte went for a palm-print number with a plunging neckline and a strappy, scooped back (so tan-friendly) that’s sure to make waves at the beach and the bar – just throw on some denim shorts. Holiday win.

2. Beach-Ready Bags

Margarita Mirror Duffel Bag, £29 | Mayan Rainforest Backpack, £29

Bold bags are the must-have essentials of any holiday hun, with neon pops of colour, swishy tassels and poppin’ palm prints making ‘em stare for summer ’17. Take tips from this wanderluster and pack a pair of them in your suitcase – a backpack for the beach and sight-seeing strolls, plus a mini duffel style for nights on the town with the girl gang.

3. Chokers, Chokers, Chokers!

Indira Charm Layered Choker, £12 | Wowza Sparkle Choker Necklace, £45

Wanna upgrade your beach-to-bar vibe? Easy – just add a choker à la Charlotte Hole. Go next-level with a chain-layered choker featuring boho-babe charms (perfect for the poolside), or amp up the summer night glam with an XXL silver-tone style, dripping in jaw-dropping jewels and sparkles. Mega.

4. Flight-Friendly Wash Bags

A travel-savvy wash bag is the simplest way to keep your summer beauty stash organised – without having to rely on the clear plastic pouches handed out at baggage check (so much splittage). Follow Charlotte’s packing cues with a zip-up style with prints and pom-poms, and slip it into your hand luggage for easy in-flight touch-ups.

5. White-Hot Extras
