Summer Travel Must-Haves

Packing for that vacation? We’ve got you covered – from beauty products that will keep you looking fresh in the heat to the coolest iPod soundtracks for those long days lounging in the sun, include these trending essentials in your suitcase and be the chicest Fashionista on the beach!

The Must-Have Accessory

Bright leathers are hot for summer 2014. So why not extend the trend to your bag? These petite clutches transition effortlessly from day to night. Pair with a crisp white bikini, oversized shades and a floral kaftan for a day at the beach or add a pop of colour to a classic LBD in the evening. Better still, once winter rolls around again they’ll make super cute makeup bags. We’ll take one in every colour, thanks!

The Must-Have Nail Polish

Chipped nails are a big Fashionista No-No, but walking around in those gorgeous sandals for days on end can really take its toll on our toes. Luckily, OPI Gel Colour is famous for its long-lasting results, so you won’t have to worry about reapplying during your trip! Primary colours and legobrights were spotted on the SS14 runways of Burberry and Peter Som, so these mouth-watering shades from OPI’s new Brazil Collection will make the perfect addition to your summer ensembles. Head to toe perfection!

The Must-Have Hair Product

Jealous of the long glossy locks that Alessandra Ambrosio and Whitney Port were sporting at Coachella? Us too! Sun, sea and chlorine can damage our hair, making it even harder to achieve Rapunzel lengths. This year, forget topical products and look after your hair from the inside with revolutionary Soya Protein Capsules by Phillip Kingsley. These vegetarian friendly supplements provide you with all the nutrients needed for glossy, healthy hair and the perfect complement to your favourite old RayBan sunglasses.

The Must-Have Perfume

At Mesofashionista.com, we just love a fragrance that automatically gets us in the summery mood! This is definitely the case with Victor & Rolf’s latest perfume, Flowerbomb. Notes of rose and orchid leave us positively uplifted, and the cute bottle even matches our pastel wardrobe staples. Result!

The Must-Have Beach Read

Following the success of her first book Treasure Yourself, supermodel and all round fashion goddess Miranda Kerr is set to release her second novel Empower Yourself this summer. Filled with positive affirmations and power thoughts for young women, Empower Yourself is the perfect feel good read guaranteed to have you feeling strong, confident and beautiful.

The Must-Have Summer Soundtrack

Iconic London band Coldplay release their new album Ghost Stories on May 19, just in time for summer! Reinventing their sound once again, the dreamy and atmospheric tunes make this the must-have album for poolside relaxation.

The Must Have Makeup

Pop icon Santigold has teamed up with legendary make up brand Smashbox to create what can only be described as their most innovative makeup collection yet. Our favourite? We’re torn between the Swarovski crystal lipstick ring and layer-able lip glosses – Um, genius!

Voilà! Packing has never been so easy – pop these summertime essentials in your beach bag to satisfy your fashion cravings whilst your away and feel every inch the fashionista. Enjoy the sunshine!
