A Stylish Influencer Shows Us What’s In Her Summer Suitcase

Chic summer dressing is something content creator Blanca Arimany does so well – so who better to ask about what they’re planning to wear on holiday? Ticking off everything she’s likely to pack for a trip to Formentera, these are her hero pieces…

01

Bikini 

I’ve gone to Formentera every year since I was young, and this handmade bikini brand is actually based there. My mum used to buy me one every summer growing up – it became a bit of a tradition. Flash forward to today and we’re actually very close friends with the owners. The brand really defines the essence of Formentera.

Linen Shirt 

When people ask me where they should start in creating their capsule summer wardrobe, I always suggest looking for a really good linen shirt. It’ll be a piece you come back to constantly.

Linen Trousers

Linen trousers are one of those pieces that work so hard in my summer wardrobe. When I'm not feeling inspired, I’ll always throw them on and create a look from there.

Dress 

Rat & Boa is one of my favourite brands for summer dresses. Offering some seriously versatile designs, you can wear them to the beach with a bikini underneath – or you can wear it as a statement piece at night. Just add some gold accessories and flat sandals.

Skirt 

This is another one of my most-worn pieces during the summer and one I’d definitely not go on a holiday without. I have them in a couple of colours and prints –they can add such a feminine, elevated vibe to any number of basic pieces.

Cowboy Hat

I love a cowboy hat in the summer. Anyone who knows me knows it’s one of my statement pieces. While it may not be your cup of tea, there are so many variations out there that you can wear on the beach and beyond.

Maxi Skirt 

This is the perfect skirt for a summer date night. I would pair it with a strapless top or linen shirt to give it extra more elegant touch. Just add gold or silver accessories to complete the look.

Scarf

Having a good scarf with me has always been my top hack. I can tie it as a sarong skirt or in my hair – it’s a multipurpose piece which adds a bit of fun and saves space in my suitcase, too.

Party Top

I’ll rarely go on holiday without at least one reliable party top. I discovered this brand in 'Las Dalias', a traditional market in Ibiza. I bought this backless number and have worn it so much. I get compliments on it every time I wear it.

Basket Bag

We all know that basket bags come back year after year – and this is my perfect one. It’s a pretty classic look. Wear it to the beach or for a stroll through San Francesc – or even dress it up with some heels to go to dinner at Can Carlitos.

Backless Top 

This is the kind of basic but chic item you always need on your summer packing list. A top like this elevates any look instantly and can be worn with a long flow-y skirt, denim or shorts.

Make-Up Essentials  

These are the products I always take on holiday. My vibe is very light and glossy. I start with the Charlotte Tilbury illuminator, then go in with the Armani blush, followed by the most incredible bronzer – Gucci Beauty in tone three. And to finish up, my lip combo includes a Rare Beauty lip liner in the shade ‘Gifted’ and my favourite Rhode peptide lip treatment on top.

Shoes

I'm not a person who usually wears high heels but, if I do, it’ll be a more relaxed style like these. They’re perfect for a date night, holiday or summer wedding.

Earrings

When it comes to summer dressing or packing for a holiday, gold jewellery is an essential. A statement pair of hoops are always the finishing touch to my ensembles.
