From pristine beaches to quaint cityscapes, summer is a great time to get away and recharge. Once the difficult part of choosing a destination is over, it’s time to have some fun outfitting for the trip. Deciding what to fill the suitcase with doesn't have to be stressful – below we break down considerations that will make packing both easy and exciting. (Can’t get away just yet? Live that vacation vicariously through a new outfit or two and perhaps some time off won’t be too far out on the horizon after all). Creating the perfect vacation worthy capsule starts with envisioning the occasion. Practicality is paramount and simple, one-piece dresses paired with sandals make the perfect day to night ensemble. A large tote keeps everything within reach and leaves room for some light shopping.
When it comes to incorporating the latest trends, this season’s offerings – stripes, ruffles, florals, shirt-inspired pieces, and off-shoulder numbers – are perfect for creating weather appropriate outfits. These classic pieces hold their own and won’t go out of style any time soon.
Vacations can be a great time to experiment with different looks and documenting that memorable getaway. For photo-worthy outfits, stick to clean, timeless pieces that won’t appear dated over time. Add a pair of killer sunglasses and a wide-brimmed hat for some rocking style and ample sun protection. For some more inspiration, peruse the lineup of outfits at the recent 2016 Coachella music festival where famous faces such as Kendall Jenner, Emma Roberts, Miranda Kerr, and Ashley Green show us how it’s done from the desert plains of Indio, California. From off-shoulder everything, strappy sandals, midi dresses, floaty tops, and front-tie shirts it’s all about having fun and looking great.
