What to Wear: Summer Vacations / by Jyoti Goel

As the temperature starts to rise, our cities & towns clear out as everyone heads to their summer break destinations. It’s time to reset your summer style. From a refreshing beach getaway to a family road trip almost anywhere, here’s some style inspiration for any (well-deserved) vacation.

HOW TO DRESS FOR A TROPICAL VACATION

Life’s always better on an exotic beach, right? Make sure you pack lightly in more ways that one! Opt for denim shorts, lace tanks/tops & flats for your travel style. A straw hat acts as the perfect beach accessory -protecting you from that unwanted sun burn. Carry a boho satchel for that perfect flavor of the tropics. When packing your bags, consider that there might be humidity. Think breathable and  natural fabrics like cotton, linen or a rayon blend.

HOW TO DRESS FOR A BEACH VACATION

Headed to a dreamy seaside escape? Keep it ocean-appropriate with preppy pops of color like orange/yellow, all the navy & white stripes that you can find, and the occasional embroidered top for styling your shorts and skirts. I recommend a bag back or a medium size satchel—it’s roomy for towels & sunscreen, and sand shakes right off/out! Give your outfit a character by mixing light navy see throw shorts with a white tank. Wear a button down or side tie draped jacket casually over your shoulders to add a dash of extra prep!

HOW TO DRESS FOR A ROAD TRIP

Stay stylish & comfortable on your next road trip in pieces that keep you cool while you’re cruising. Whether you’re in a convertible with the top down & radio up or in a midsize family van, you need breezy layers to protect you from the sun that can easily peel off at the excessive exposure of sun. Wear a lace spaghetti strap dress or more revealing tank for road trip perfection. Pair with a denim jacket to keep you cool & comfy, and also, it can be a great way to pull off monochromatic look without feeling too bland.

Road Trip

HOW TO DRESS FOR A CITY VACATION

Bright lights & big cities call for going out outfits. If you’re headed to an urban jungle this summer, don’t be afraid to pack black—even in the warmer climates. Just pair it back to statement top and bomber jacket/ blazer, preppy shorts & statement accessories for impact. Beware of indoor air conditioning and those extra miles you need to walk!  In that case replace the shorts with jeans and slip inside a pair of comfy shoes instead of the peep toe booties.
