What to pack for a summer getaway
For most men, packing isn’t easy and is often a case of taking too much or too little. This guide will help you ensure that you take the essentials for a summer holiday and look good on the beach, at the bar, or on the boardwalk!
This is your number-one item. The last thing you want to do is spend your holiday squinting into the sun, so invest in a decent pair of stylish sunglasses or two if you don’t already have any, and pack them first.
Whichever popular holiday spot you choose to visit, make sure you pack a few plain T-shirts. Plain Ts in neutral colour like black, grey or white are incredibly versatile and can be dressed up or down as needed.
Comfy, versatile and lightweight, Chino shorts are a true summer essential. They don’t take up much space in your luggage, and if you shop somewhere like ejmenswear, you’ll find them in a range of different colours designed to suit all tastes and preferences.
Plain or printed shirt
You may well need something a bit smarter than T-shirt while on a summer holiday, and mens Farah clothes are just one of the many brands you’ll find that have appropriate attire of great quality. Pack a plain shirt if you need to mix and match, or opt for a print one if you know exactly what you’ll be wearing it with.
You don’t need to pack tons of swimwear, but if you are going to be spending plenty of time at the beach or the pool, pack two pairs of swim shorts. This way, if one is wet, you have a dry backup and can rotate them.
Sliders or sandals
Easy slip-on sandals, sliders or flip flops are crucial summer holiday footwear. You can easily pack a pair or two without them taking up much space, and you’ll find them very useful simply for walking to the beach or pool, or if the ground gets scorching hot.
A warm sweater
It may be a summer holiday, but it can still get chilly when the sun goes down. Make sure you pack a warm sweatshirt or hooded zip-up top that you can easily slip on when the temperature drops a little.
