7 beach holiday must-haves that every stylish traveller will pack

Pack smart and pack light with these stylish must-haves, for your next beach vacation soon
 

Lucky us; Singapore's proximity to the many gorgeous beach destinations mean that a resort vacation is really just mere hours away. At the same time, that means that most of us really pack at the last-minute (oops!).

Besides the requisite beach hat and sunnies, here's a handy list to help make packing for that weekend getaway a little less stressful. We share the must-haves to bring with you:

1. A summer dress

Cotton dress, $24.13 from Cool-Find K-Style

Seriously, you’re just there for a short trip, so it’ll be wise to pack light. Be it floral frock or a simple cotton dress, stick to one dress so that you can just grab and go.

2. A cover-up
Because a plain ol’ tee alone isn’t enough. Besides, you’ll have your bikini on most of the time, since you’ll be spending most of your time by the pool or beachside!

Bikini top, $89.90 and bikini bottom, $69.90, both from Triumph

Whether you’re actually swimming or just lounging by the pool, you know you’ll want to pack swimwear with you; they don’t weigh much, to begin with. In particular, we love this fun printed set from Triumph (as seen above). Keep the straps on to wear it as a bikini or detach the straps to wear it as a bandeau top.

7. A bag of sample-size toiletries
It forces you to pack light; setting these aside early means that you can just grab and go for your next weekend trip. Most importantly, don’t forget to bring your sunscreen!
