Words by Eleni Papaioannou
So much to pack, so little time. Thank god for the little things, like the talent to pack up the perfect weekend bag full of charm and style bliss.
Blue is the freshest color, when it comes to swimwear. A well-tailored pair of shorts, a lovely polo shirt that can easily be worn until sundown and a pair of well-made espadrilles, are all you need for your sun kissed days.
Take it to another level and switch to pink for your afternoon drinks, after you get the best suntan of your life. This burgundy t-shirt will really show off your fresh tan.
·Every season, we have our new favorites. They may be old clothes that we have suddenly remembered, they may be new additions that we are fixated upon, due to the flare they bring to the rest of our outfits. It doesn’t matter. You know what your usual suspects are, so just surrender to them.
·Don’t pack things that “you would like to wear”. Choose the ones you have already worn.
·Before contemplating on your wardrobe, make some clear distinctions in your head. Picture yourself on the island and what you are going to do, where you are going to go. Now imagine what you want to be wearing. In order not to mix things up, separate your clothes in three piles: one for your beachwear, one for afternoon cocktail hour and one for crazy nights out.
Remember that polo shirt we were talking about just a little earlier?
Well, here’s its older, darker brother, paired with crisp trousers and all white trainers. A night out on the weekend doesn’t need to bring with it the sophistication of the city, so just chillax!
