Summer is a peak time for traveling. If plans over the next few months land you at a US hot spot or a luxurious international destination, read on for stylish pieces we recommend for the trip. As you pack for vacation, include chic, sensible outfits for sightseeing, soaking up the sun, shopping, and going out.

Here’s our edit of the best summer vacation styles to make room for in your suitcase.


The Outfits


The romper is back this season! We cut the latest one-and-done silhouette in beach terry, but it’s designed to take you beyond the beach in a street-chic mini cheetah print. Its comfortable fit feels just right for casual outings along with pool and beach time.


Packing at least one dress for your trip is essential, so versatility is key. Our pick is this one-shoulder summer-ready look in linen. Linen offers lightweight polish that can shift from casual daytime to elevated styling with a few accessory swaps. An asymmetrical ruffle adds a feminine flair, and a raffia belt with matching sandals completes the look. 


 Sets offer a pulled-together look in an instant. There’s no fussing over what to wear with what. On top of that benefit, when designed in a breezy gauze fabric and effortless silhouettes, you just doubled and tripled wearing occasions while on vacation. These versatile pieces take you from brunch to the pool to the bar and taking in sights.

When it comes to swimsuits, we give much thought to curating the best styles. Starting with eye-catching cuts and colors that make an impression, we also consider functionality, fit, and coverage. This tankini checks all those boxes, making it the perfect suit to bring on vacation. Boasting a sexy halter neckline and a bit of shimmer, we love wearing the top as a tank, too. 


For that special evening planned while on vacation, there’s this showstopper of a dress to capture the moment. For a style that doesn’t take up too much room in your suitcase, it makes a big impression with embroidery and embellishments galore against shimmery linen. 


Multiple occasion pieces are a must for packing lists. We like this statement print top with our bestselling denim as an outfit you can wear out to lunch in the daytime and transition to cocktails and dinner in the evening. 


The Accessories

We created this list in a style capsule with colors and tones working together, making it much easier to pack shoes and accessories. Because sneakers are rather bulky, we suggest wearing them in transit to and from your destination. Stick with neutral slides and heels for versatility when dressing an outfit up or down. If you have extra room in your luggage, we recommend a second pair of flats if you want a pop of color. Coordinate those with jewelry to pull the entire look together. Lastly, the hat! Some are designed to be foldable and pack-friendly, while others need just a little TLC when arranging your bag. Or wear it with your travel outfit to keep its shape intact.  

We hope this style advice is helpful. Enjoy your travels!
