We know that holiday packing is tricky, especially with many finding themselves sticking to hand luggage to avoid additional baggage fees. We've teamed up with Missguided UK to bring you top holiday packing tips.

To celebrate the summer holidays global fashion brand Missguided has got everything you need for your official babe uniform.

1. Love your body

Whether we like to admit it or not, many of us fall victim to the dreaded red glow known as sunburn. Despite all efforts, it's often the case we get a little too excited at the sight of some sun and lose all inhibitions. In which case, it helps to show your body some love and pack something loose fitting - you'll thank yourself when you're lathered in after sun struggling to get that bodycon dress on, what's more - it'll allow for some breathing space for maximum cooling efforts.

2. Try a 2-4-1 shoe

It's no secret that we have to be fairly cut throat on our clothes and shoes when packing with limited sizes - which often leaves us battling between the sparkly sandals or our comfy go to flip flops. Why not take both!? Well sort of...with so many options out there we recommend going for a pair that is durable for the day but stylish enough for the night (and comfortable). If in doubt, black leather usually ticks all the boxes. Added bonus, you'll spend less time deciding between the two and more time sipping on cocktails.

3. It's all about that bling

Now this tip is not a surprise but it's such an important one that we couldn't leave it off the list. Mix up your outfits with different accessories so you can turn that beach dress into a bar dress all with one simple addition. Not only will it save you space but it will save you time having to go back and change just remember to stick it in your beach bag!

4. Go with a theme

If you're like many of us and find it nearly impossible to decide on outfits before you travel (curse those that can be organised), go with a colour theme. This frees you up to be more flexible in mixing and matching with your items when that outfit you'd planned in your head really hasn't pulled through and panic has begun to set in.

5. What's sarong with a scarf?

It might seem strange to pack a scarf when you're off on your summer holiday but this little saviour will have your back, quite literally (among other things). Use as a sarong for the beach or some shoulder shelter at lunch. Dress up a plain top or protect your head from the sun. The best of all, keep cosy for the cooler nights and harsh flight air con when you're on your way home to lesser weather.
