Holiday Essentials

At Nicobar, we like to travel light, unencumbered by heavy bags full of things we thought we’d need. We believe that holidays should be filled with spontaneous detours, and nothing kills our travel buzz more than dragging an awkward suitcase down narrow alleys and up dizzying flights of stairs. We asked television presenter and frequent flier Karuna to put together a packing list, with just those wardrobe essentials we absolutely can’t do without.

1. A comfortable top with a fun print pairs perfectly with everything from jean shorts to linen pants. Karuna wears Nicobar’s grey polka top with a pair of her own shorts and Birkenstocks.
2. A dress that’ll transition from beach to bar. Karuna chose our black silk cocoon dress, with a little hint of shine that makes that transition seamless.

3. A brightly coloured cotton dress to add a pop of colour to your travel wardrobe. This “no muss, no fuss” tangerine dress looks great with sneakers, and is perfect for long walks in the summer sun.
4. Travel pants don’t have to be frumpy. Nico’s denim pants, made for long flights, hot bus rides, and leisurely train rides, will see to it that you arrive at your destination, looking as fresh as you feel.
