Going away on a summer vacation? What are you wearing?
Get those itineraries—and maybe your passports—ready because summer vacation season is finally here! Whether you're headed to a beach weekend with your crew or an exotic international destination (or maybe both), you'll need amazing outfit ideas for all your travel plans.
Before we start talking vacation, you have to get there—so let's discuss what to wear on the plane, train, or automobile. You could wear a long-sleeve light weight tee for comfort with an oversized scarf in case the AC starts blasting. Add sexy skinny jeans without hems that don’t drag on the floor with a vintage-y Western ankle booties instead of sandals, because your feet might get cold.
If you are going to the beach and look forward to being relaxed on a posh vacation to the Caribbean or local to the beaches of New Jersey think about bringing a glamorous cover-up with you. Peasant tops with cutoff shorts or walking shorts totally channel a boho-cool style. Selecting a colorful and interesting-print caftan creates an easy but sophisticated take on beachwear. Whichever style you go with, don't forget your must-have accessories: sunglasses, a sun-blocking hat, and loads of sunscreen. Consider bringing a romper in a solid or beautiful print and wear with wedges. Rompers work for vacation because it is one piece and it is versatile. You can wear one out to dinner with a pair of heels, and then throw it on over your swimsuit when you hit the pool the next day.
Cosmopolitan City or Shopping-focused trip:
Heading to a cosmopolitan city for your next trip? Planning a shopping-focused trip to New York, London, or Paris (lucky you!)? Bringing separates are the wardrobe secret for optimum retail success. Why? Individual pieces offer easy fitting and comparison points for potential purchases. Start with a printed, flared skirt—go non-floral for extra kick—then layer a summer sweater over a tank (it gets breezy in the boutiques). Opt for chic slip-on flats or wedges for comfort and hassle-free shoe-try-ons, and pack light with a small, sleek cross-body bag since you'll need your hands free to carry all those shopping bags.
Ever think about wearing a white eyelet dress with some unexpected edge by adding a black-and-white graphic jacket. The modern, geometric-print layer smartly tempers any preciousness of the girlishly flirty summer staple for an effortless downtown look. Finish off with a couple of "I just threw these on and they look fabulous" accessories: chic flats or embellished flip flops with a simple black bag. It's the perfect street-style combo that might get you snapped while strolling Le Marais in Paris or Palermo Soho in Buenos Aires.
Will you be browsing the medinas of Marrakech or bargain shopping your way through the night markets in Bangkok? Pack a suitcase full of uncomplicated shirtdresses, and inventively mix prints with festive multicolor flat sandals. This vacation wardrobe strategy takes any guesswork out of getting ready in the morning (gotta make the most of your day, right?), plus it leaves lots of extra room in your suitcase for on-the-go purchases.
Regardless of where your travels are taking you this summer for your vacation- relax, be safe, look fabulous and have a blast.
