Spanish label Adolfo Dominguez has been delivering quality separates and tailoring since it launched in 1950. There’s something undeniably European about the colours, cuts and fabrics the brand uses in its collection – a vibe that can definitely help inspire holiday dressing. From classic tees with a twist to very packable dresses and bags that carry their own, the latest drop is filled with Euro summer staples.

If you’re escaping the clutches of Australian winter for days spent by the Mediterranean sipping spritzes, consider this the ultimate packing list.

A t-shirt with a twist

A good tee is a suitcase staple. Elevate denim shorts and sneakers with this draping mustard-yellow style for days spent sightseeing. Cut from 100% cotton, it's an easy piece to wash and wear throughout your trip. And it looks equally chic matched with a slicked-back bun, a silky slip skirt and strappy sandals come cocktail hour.

Summer denim

Baggy white denim is the ultimate solve for summer dressing if your trip takes you all across the continent. This ecru pair fits with a pleated front and wide leg – wear with a blazer in Amsterdam, a button-down shirt in Rome and a scarf styled as a top on a Greek Island.

The nice top

There’s no denying the power of the “jeans and a nice top” outfit combo. Translate this to your European summer wardrobe by swapping out jeans for floaty pants or a mini skirt. This silky cami comes in an Aperol shade of orange that feels like a holiday itself.

The day-to-dinner dress

We love pieces that do double duty. And when they pack well (read: don’t need to be ironed), it’s an instant win. This crinkle-effect dress fits with a simple silhouette – but the spliced green and beige colourway adds a level of interest.

The capacious crossbody bag

Small but mighty is the approach to take for your handbag when travelling. This pleated style has a spacious compartment that you can stack with your phone, wallet, passport, camera, SPF and more. The drawstring top helps with easy access to your belongings – it also has an interior zipped pocket to keep your valuables safely stowed.

For the guys

The key to packing well is to choose pieces that can be easily worn during the day and dressed up at night. Think a polo shirt with a twist: see this cotton style with a zip fastening and this bomber-inspired neckline. T-shirts are another easy win – look for styles with textured or marled finishes to change things up. A smart button-down shirt is another non-negotiable. Mix-and-match with sporty shorts, crisp chinos and lightweight denim, depending on where you’re heading.
