When packing shirts for your summer holiday there are a few things you need to consider depending on the weather at your destination and your outfit needs. Here are our top tips for selecting the best shirts to travel with.\n\n1. Natural fibres\n\nStaying cool is a top priority during summer and it becomes especially important when you are on your feet all day sightseeing. Consider natural fibres such as linen and cotton for keeping cool and dry. Linen shirts are especially good for absorbing moisture and drying quickly, plus it moves heat away from your body.\n \n\n2. Sleeve Length\n\nIf you are visiting a tropical climate, you may want to consider bringing along some long sleeve shirt options for both sun protection and keeping mosquitos and bugs at bay. You can always roll up the sleeves if you’re feeling overheated.\nIf you’re staying out of the sun, we think hot days are best enjoyed in a short sleeve shirt that allows air the to circulate. Why not add some personality to your look with a printed shirt.\n \n3. Crease-resistance \nDon’t waste time ironing on your holiday. Look for shirts that are labelled easy-care or made from seersucker cotton. Seersucker shirts are woven so that they can simply be washed, hung up to dry and worn straight away – no need to iron.\nOur shirts are finished with a treatment that makes them easy to iron and staying crease-free for longer. Make sure you hang your shirts as soon as you arrive at your accommodation, so some of the creases will drop out naturally and you’ll have even less to worry about.\n \n\n4. Quick-drying\n\nLinen shirts are (yet again) an excellent choice for your holiday as they dry quickly after washing. Make sure you put them straight on a hanger and do up the top button to help keep the collar shape. If you have a balcony at your accommodation, a gentle breeze will accelerate the drying process and you’ll be out the door in no time.\nWe’re confident that our range of comfortable, stylish and functional shirts will be the perfect fit for your summer holiday.
