Travel Essentials for a Stylish Break

Lucky enough to be jetting off? These are the Fact + Fiction team's summer travel essentials. 

Charli Backpack

Perfect for the plane, so no one needs to see your spare pants when you pull out your passport! We store our flight socks in the bottom compartment, our laptop in the laptop sleeve, a change of clothes (spare pants) in the main compartment, keeping our passport and tickets in the handy front pocket.  Also a fab bag for sightseeing and city breaks. Check her out here -

Aesop Travel Kit 

Filled with travel sizes of the label's most coveted products, Aesop's 'London Kit' is a must-have for long-haul flights and vacations. This antioxidant-rich set includes best-selling essentials from the 'Classic Shampoo' to the 'Parsley Seed Facial Cleanser'. £50 from Net A Porter.

A Panama Hat 

The Instagrammers' fave accessory - but that's not why we love them. They are super light to pack, hold their shape well and are flattering for pretty much all face types. Wear with flat dressers, shorts or just your bikini. Available everywhere - our fave is £5.99 from H&M. 

 Boo Hoo Beach co-ords

Cheap, cheerful and fun, we can't get enough of Boo Hoo's beach co-ords. From £6.99 

BB Cream 

Why take 10  creams when you can take 1? Most BB creams act as perfectors, primers, moisturisers and foundations.  We keep our skin bare in the days and just wear make-up at night - choose a lighter one to let your tan come through. Rimmel's 9 in 1 is our holiday fave. Mix it with a liquid tanner like Dr Hauschka Translucent Bronzing Tint for a more intense summery feel. 

Chic Flats 

A great alternative to trainers. We love scrappy, pointy flats - they look fab with beachwear and also great with dresses for the evening. 

The Multi-Tasker Dress 

We're huge fans of a long floaty dress - wear it with trainers to travel (so comfy), for night out with chic flats or to the beach with flip flops. Asos always have some great styles and they do petite versions too. 

GymTote Reese 

Another great carry on bag for the plane, but also perfect for stylish pool days thanks to her being waterproof inside and out. Shop the Reese so fab here -
