There are cool people everywhere. And by that I mean everywhere. Chilling by the pool in their printed kaftans, snapping pics of each other on inflatables, sipping cocktails at the Captain Cook bar. From edgy tattooed couples to groups of stunning bleach-blonde Swedish friends, I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many good looking people in one place! I always find it super hard to dress for a holiday, and every night I seem to be sending the same question in my friends’ group chat: ‘What are you wearing?’.
With London Fashion Week just around the corner, I seem to have a bigger interest than ever in how I dress. So, with that, I wanted to let you know exactly what I packed for my week away at Cook’s Club. And here’s your first tip: it’s time to leave the Crocs at home.
Colours and textures
Cook’s Club Hotels are a melting pot of cultures, colours and textures, so naturally, fashion follows closely behind. I tend to wear a lot of black and neutral tones, so I love choosing items with unique textures. Velvet, mesh and satin look amazing against sun-kissed skin and bright colours are always a winner with a holiday tan; think lime green, bright yellow and cerise pink.
Printed tees are my favourite fail-safe holiday option. Whether it’s a distressed band cut-off or one with a cheeky slogan, they look perfect with everything. In the day, I knot mine at the front and wear with a pair of flowing culottes, and in the evening I’ll tuck it into a frayed denim skirt and pair it with some chunky flatforms; effortless cool perfect for Cook’s Club.

I really love this new concept – Cooks club hotels. Focus on a chill environment with great interior design, good food and nice music all day long. I can recomend you to go here next season, alone, with your friends or with your partner – available for booking in January 🇬🇷✈️☀️ #vingresor #cooks#cooksclubhotels
I don’t know about you, but no holiday outfit of mine is complete without a pair of statement sunglasses. I love the fact that colour-tinted lenses and quirky shapes have made a comeback. They’re also the perfect accessory to hide a pair of tired eyes from the night before. I switch between a pair of rose gold-rimmed aviators and some sweeping cat eye shades!
Keep it classic

Let’s go for a unique Greek-tastic trip 😋 always a little bit of chaos while packing my bags 🙌🏻 Hi Crete, Hi Cook’s Club ♡ follow my Stories and posts during my staying at the first Cook’s Club hotel.

Heading off somewhere super-cool on holiday may seem daunting, but you can build an amazing wardrobe from just a few key pieces that’ll never go out of style. I never go on holiday without a pair of classic leather buckled sandals or some bleached-out denim shorts. A favourite of mine is a linen shirt; there are dozens of different ways to wear it! Knot it into a crop top at night or leave it open on top of a bikini for poolside chic.
What’s one item of clothing that you couldn’t go on holiday without? How would you make a statement at Cook’s Club? I’d love to hear about your fashion favourites in the comments below.
