Whether it’s a quick weekend trip or you’re just maxing out your hand luggage, master the art of skilful holiday packing with these morning, noon and night essentials

With our go-to budget airlines decreasing luggage capacity but whacking up the prices, it literally pays to get savvy with your packing if you’re looking to keep down your travel expenses. By maximising on what precious little space you have and cramming everything you could possibly need in to a sturdy weekend bag, backpack or holdall, you not only scrape together a few extra pennies to spend on a mojito at the other end, but you also manage to skip past the conveyor belts at baggage reclaim too.
But just how does man master the art of hand luggage packing? By boiling their holiday looks down to just a few key summer menswear pieces that you can wear from breakfast to beach to bar; that work seamlessly together but also stand out in their own right. It might seem like a big ask, but we think we’ve nailed in with the 9 pieces below. From wear-everywhere printed short sleeve shirts and swim shorts too good to save for the pool to breathable cream linen trousers made for balmy summer evenings, this capsule wardrobe packs the same punch as if you’d forked out for the extra 15kg.
