Packing it in

Sat, Jun 23, 2012, 01:00

Going away? Staying at home? Either way, there’s no need to pack the kitchen sink – and 15 pairs of shoes. ROSEMARY MACCABEselects the ultimate capsule wardrobe, whether you’re vacationing or staycationing

If you’re on your way to the Costa Del Sunshine for some much-needed beach time, your wardrobe requirements should be fairly simple: a few easy-to-wash (and dry) maxi dresses, a kaftan or two, a bikini and a pair of jeans. These white jeans by MiH can be worn under your Penneys kaftan – or, if you’re brave enough, Gottex’s flowing maxi – while Hoss’s floor-length number will look as good on the beach as it will at dinner. Fitzpatrick’s chunky flatforms will keep you looking cool and, crucially, unblistered, while HM’s yellow espadrille platforms provide a pop of colour for night-time.
