4 must-have items for a luxury break

It’s wonderful to be whisked away for a luxury break — whether you’re bound for the Balearic Islands, the French Riviera or the Caribbean.

Spending a few days’ completely unwinding and forgetting workaday worries is sublime.

But you might to prioritise what you pack for a brief sojourn.

So here are four must-have items you can’t leave home without.

Travel makeup kit

A well-stocked makeup and toiletries pack is absolutely essential if you want to look fresh and fierce from the moment you step off the plane.

And many manufacturers offer terrific travel kits stuffed full of crucial skincare, sunscreen and hygiene products in compact sizes that comply with carry-on luggage regulations.

So, if you pack your hand luggage perfectly you might even get away with ditching hold luggage — leaving you free to saunter through arrivals with no need to waste time checking tags at the carousel.

Evening dress

You might spend most of your trip on the beach or relaxing by the pool.

But you’ll need an elegant evening dress to slot in smoothly at a sumptuous soiree.

AX Paris has a super selection of styles that range from figure-hugging to free-flowing, so you’re sure to find something that suits the occasion.

And you can match the fabric to subtly reflect your location — a floral design is a fabulous match for a tropical territory while something sleek and self-coloured might be more appropriate for a city trip.


If your itinerary includes an evening at a high-end restaurant or chic nightclub then it’s difficult to avoid travelling with a pair of killer heels in tow.


But if the main focus is rest and relaxation then sandals take up far less case space and are versatile enough to be worn by the poolside and out to dinner.

This footwear niche covers a wide spectrum from basic deck shoes to mid-heel mules — so picking the right pair is child’s play.


Swimwear should always be near the top of your tick-list, whether you’re restricted to the hotel’s indoor pool or headed for the open sea on a yacht.


But take time to select an option that blends beautiful styling with comfort that makes you confident.

There’s a bouquet of bathing suits available online — from sleek one-piece costumes to bold bikinis in several shades and patterns.

Flowery designs feature heavily in this season’s offering but retro designs complete with waistband drawstrings are a quirky alternative.

If you’re a serious swimmer then choosing a more conservative sports design that’s tough and supportive is wise, but if sun-worship’s your bag then let your imagination run riot with something a little wilder.

With a little planning, you can pack all of the essentials in a cabin bag for a terrific trip.

And these four must-have items will help you feel fantastic on faraway shores.
