We chat to Stevie muse, Nadia Fairfax, about her summer European escape, must-have vacay pieces, and how to effortlessly style key holiday looks.
What are the must pack pieces for this Euro?
You can never pack enough little dresses. I love crispy white shirts for the beach / poolside action. I always take a plethora of earrings on any trip. I’ve really been enjoying one piece swimsuits lately - add skirt / shorts, Voila! Extra outfit sorted.
What’s your airport uniform to maintain jet set style?
This trip I wore a cashmere tracksuit, sleek sneakers and a polo shirt. Typically, I try to steer clear of looking sloppy / too relaxed. I wear a normal outfit and change after take-off / before landing out of my comfy clothes. I am a fan of matching luggage too! Love looking tidy.
How do you wardrobe plan for your trip? / Give us your packing tips.
I am a terrible packer! I always do it last minute and never "pre-style" looks... but I wish I did! It would make my trip way less stressful. However – I’m a fan of flat packing, which means I don’t fold, I just lay flat in my suitcase. So many less wrinkles!!!!
What are the key looks you’ll be styling while in Europe?
It’s a holiday, so truthfully - I'll be thinking comfort and practicality. Lots of floaty dresses, shorts and sandals. Just stepping it up a notch with cool accessories. Headscarves, earrings, chic bags etc.
What destination are you looking forward to visiting most?
It changes every year! I love going to new destinations! The south of France has been splendid, but later this year I am heading back to the Turkish Riviera, I haven’t been in many years and have always loved it. The water is magical and so is the food!!!!
What do you always make space in your suitcase for?
Sunnies! Sometimes I take like 15 pairs on a holiday. I change them with every outfit.
What are your top restaurants/bars around the French riviera?
Le club 55 - St Tropez
La Guerite - Canne
Mamo - Antibe
