Ready to escape to a more tropical climate, but the thought of holiday dressing in said destination has got you reaching for the cocktails before you’ve even hit duty free? Here’s our definitive style guide on what to wear to the party, in the city, and when in the French Riviera.Which holiday style tribe are you?

The Uptown Traveller – The French Riviera

Vacationing in such a place is something that even the most seasoned traveller can fail to get right – hotels where the sight of a vest means you’ll be shunned from the lobby before you can even say Pina Colada and beaches that make your tired old swimming shorts look, well… Just like tired old swimming shorts. Dressing for a place such as Monaco or Cannes requires comfort yet great style at all times. Start by arriving with chic luggage, this Mulberry Clipper Leather Holdall is roomy enough for a weekend away. Plastic sandals and swim shorts alike should make way for chic Paul Smith ice cream printed shorts and a pair of smart Gucci Horsebit sandals. Finish the look off with this ASOS straw Panama hat, a staple for a well travelled gent.

The Beach Buoy – Mykonos

Holidays in a beach destination can be much easier than a city break, however when packing for the sand it’s worth investing in good quality staples that will carry you through your entire trip. A good place to start is capsule swimwear – these Robinson Bains swim trunks at Selfridges are small enough to get a decent tan and the bright colour is perfect to accompany monochromatic accessories. Finish the look with a slim fit vest from River Island, a simple black baseball cap and this luxe backpack from Aspinal of London, a chic alternative to using the tacky bag provided by the hotel!

The City Slicker – San Francisco

Dressing for a city getaway can be equally as tricky – crowds of people and scorching hot climates, mean you have to be comfortable but still well-dressed, because water sandals in the city are not a thing. A loose printed shirt, with rolled sleeves and a few buttons undone is the perfect way to stay cool – we love this Paul Smith printed version paired with these River Island white shorts. Make sure to stay comfortable in these Jimmy Choo espadrilles and wrap the look up with these Persol folding sunglasses, ideal for hiding a hangover too!
