Don’t Panic, Just Pack

We all love the excitement of going on holiday, however the idea of packing for one can be very unappealing for some of us. Sitting on the top of your case whilst trying to squeeze those last few items in will always be frustrating. However, don’t stress, if you’re like most of us holiday makers and are last minute packers; this post will help whilst buying those holiday essentials that slipped your mind. Here’s the holiday must haves to take away your packing panics and ensure you yet set stress free.

First up, don’t forget your sunnies, the number one item on the checklist. Sunglasses are easily forgotten when packing but when you arrive and the sun is shining bright, you’re soon reminded of how important they are. If you’re looking to purchase a new pair, we recommend a pair of the world-famous Ray Bans. You can shop the ‘Classic Clubmaster’ for that cool, dapper look or if you’re looking something more edgy then try a pair of their ‘Round Flecks’ from their contemporary range.

Next up on the list we have the much-needed hat, a holiday essential that many forget. The ideal style to take is the sun protecting cap or trucker. Popping in a unisex cap in your hand luggage makes the perfect packing to keep it in shape and ideal for putting on soon as you walk off the plane. Shop from our own range here at Thomas Royall including our ‘Navy Logo Cap’ that would match with most swim shorts or our ‘Light Pink Logo Cap’ for her, ideal for any time of day.

Next up we have essential after shave, even if you may not be a consistent after shave user on holiday it can be handy to keep you smelling fresh in the heat. To get that scent to impress, we would highly recommend Tom Ford – Black Orchid. This makes for quite a strong manly scent and is one of their most popular aftershaves, however they do have a variety of options to find the one that suits you. Pair up with your partner for matching Tom Ford scents including Soleil Eau Parfum for her with a light, fresh scent.

When you’re making your way to the beach, it’s an ideal time to chuck on a t-shirt or polo shirt to wear with your swim shorts. British brand Sunspel, offers a variety of men’s tops with a range of classic colours to add to your summer wardrobe. Offering different fits and neck lines to suit your personal style, Sunpel deliver premium staples for easy holiday packing.

If you’re going for a smarter look then check out their ‘Riviera’ polos shirts with simple branding or if your searching for something more casual, why not try their short sleeve ‘Crew’ necks.

Our final recommendation to help with your holiday packing would of course be a statement pair of Thomas Royall swim shorts. If you’re yet to check out our collection of stylish shorts with unique prints and premium branding then here’s a two of favourites to pick from.

Our black ‘Leopard’ design shorts have been this season’s popular purchase so far with a relaxed fit and an eye catching graphic that we be sure to make a poolside statement.

Alternatively, if you’re after something a little less loud to walk along the beach in, then we suggest our classic plain colours including the new ‘Portugal Navy’ shorts. These ‘Luca’ fit swim shorts are ideal for day or night, paired with a Thomas Royall cap and stylish t-shirt. Our fast drying, branded shorts come in a choice of relaxed and tailored fits to cater for both a casual and smart look.
