Make holiday packing easy with the ultimate capsule wardrobe for a weekend away

We all know the struggle of trying to cram one more dress, t-shirt or piece of jewellery into an already overflowing suitcase.

And no matter how cleverly we roll up our knickers, or how Marie-Kondo our mindset is when we begin, we never seem to have quite enough space for all the items we deem essential for a weekend getaway.

With this in mind, we have whittled down everything you could ever need into an impossibly easy to pack capsule wardrobe. From a chic dress to a statement necklace, and from sandals to that all-important book, follow our simple guide illustrated by Emma Block and eliminate the need for any pre-holiday hassle once and for all.
