Clara Paget doesn’t have a signature look. Jumpsuit and trainers one day, splashy floral maxi dress the next, the actress, who broke through as Anne Bonny in television series Black Sails, loves to mix things up. What she does have is a signature vibe, bringing a playful, mussed-up, bohemian insouciance to everything she wears. Here, she talks holiday style and why she’ll always be a last-minute packer.

Shop Mix/Isa Arfen Jumpsuit

Mix/Isa Arfen jumpsuit, £160

“There’s a side to me that’s very ‘rude girl’ London, and I just like wearing tracksuits and trainers. But then I can be completely different if I’m going to an event, wearing something quirky that I would never normally wear.”

“I’m a bit of a chaotic packer, always at the last minute, but I only work well under pressure! I always pack too many jeans. If it’s hot, I never wear them, and if it’s chilly, I only want to wear my favourite pair.”

Shop Mix/Teatum Jones Dress

Mix/Teatum Jones dress, £165

“I look for multifunctional pieces that can go from day to night, so you can go lighter on the packing. I’m really into clashing patterns, whether it’s different-sized polka dots or stripes.”

Shop Mix/Isa Arfen Printed Dress

Mix/Isa Arfen printed dress, £180; Mix/J.Won ruffle sliders, £99

“My packing essentials are scarves, as you can use them in so many ways: as a cover-up, headscarf, towel. I also bring a bikini, little dress and sunglasses in my hand luggage, after losing my suitcase many times!”

Shop Mix/Isa Arfen Jumpsuit

Mix/Isa Arfen jumpsuit, £160

“My dream holiday involves getting up slowly, coffee and potentially yoga or a swim, followed by a massive breakfast and more swimming, ideally in the sea, exploring, a boat trip and lunch. Then a big alfresco dinner at a villa with lots of friends, maybe a barbecue and probably lots of rosé.”
