MIX AND MATCH

Sairey says: "Wherever you're heading this summer, a few versatile pieces you can style at least three ways will prove perfect travel companions – and they'll help keep your luggage light. Think lightweight jumpers for cloudy days or cool evenings, t-shirts you can pair with shorts or linen trousers, and trainers you can wear with everything – even dresses."

PRACTICAL PIECES

Sairey says: "Accessories are key to transforming an outfit, but be considered. Ask yourself how many you really need – three or four well-chosen pieces can serve multiple functions. A basket tote can double as a travel holdall and beach bag. While espadrilles are comfy enough for days out but equally elegant for evenings."

BEACH TO BAR

Sairey says: "A chic shirt dress in a cool, airy fabric is always on my packing list. A suitcase staple, you can style it with trainers to go sightseeing, wear it over a bikini as a cover-up, and dress it up with a belt and heeled sandals for restaurant outings – it will prove useful whatever the destination!"
