Traveling this summer? Here’s what you need to pack

Are you making your way to the beach this summer or booked a trip to a tropical paradise?

No matter where you’re traveling, you still have to get over the hurdle that is packing. If you like many of us, lose your mind trying to fit in all the essentials with the much-needed extra looks, all whilst trying to make sure your luggage is not over the “not-so-generous” 30kgs, then keep reading.


GANT’s summer collection features light, comfortable, and style-conscious pieces calling to the escapists longing for travel this season. Think bold and dynamic shapes that won’t take up space in your suitcase, but will come in clutch for any situation or outing you find yourself when on vacation.

A Fave Dress Shirt

GANT Dahlia Print Dress AED 549

We are obsessed with the dress shirt as it’s such a versatile piece that can be styled in several different ways – over a swimsuit for pool days or dressed up with mules for sunset drinks with your travel companions.

Denim is key

Slim Fit Blue Capri Jeans AED 119

We know it’s summer but nothing beats a classic pair of jeans. Throw on a breezy crop with chunky jewelry and sandals for an elevated look.

A Blazer a Day

Rope Jacquard DB Slim Blazer AED 1,999

With the world moving in a virtual space these days, you never know when you may need to hop on a Zoom call for some business. So it never hurts to have a chic blazer stashed away in your bags that you can put on, should the need arise. And if not, at least you can still dress it up with a pair of slacks and heels.

Silk Scarves

Palm Breeze Print Silk Scarf AED 109

Contrary to popular belief, scarves aren’t just cold weather essential. They work just as well for the blistering summer days, adding an extra layer of ‘oomph’ to any look.

Cashmere sweater

Stretch Cotton Cable C-Neck AED 699

promise, no minds were lost when creating this list! Packing a sweater in the summer may seem like an oxymoron, but the soft embrace of cashmere is a luxury everyone should enjoy now and again. And best yet, it’s one of those pieces that seems to perfect for all occasions.
