How to Travel in Style This Summer
Summer is the perfect time to finally push through with that much-needed getaway you’ve been planning with friends! Whether you’re going to the beach or heading to the city for a weekend getaway, you’ll need the essentials we’ve listed below to stay stylish on your trip:
Basic White Shirt
What better way to start this list than with a no-frills essential? This versatile item can go with your favorite jeans, shorts, or skirt, and can be dressed up or down depending on your itinerary. Make sure to pick breathable fabrics like linen and rayon to battle the summer heat and stay fresh all day.
An urban getaway will most likely include a night for dressing up, running around, and hitting the best bars in town! This means you can’t leave your house without your favorite pair of fabulous heels that instantly elevate your outfits. Of course, remember that there might literally be some running around to do, so choose from Harper’s Bazaar’s curated list of comfortable heels that will keep your trip pain-free yet equally stylish.
If you have to take just one accessory on your summer trip, make sure it is a pair of gorgeous statement sunglasses. Whether they’re vibrantly colored lenses, wildly oversized frames, or exaggerated in shape and style, statement shades are the best way to give a pop of personality to your outfit. Take your cue from Style Caster’s guide on how to wear statement sunglasses and play around with matching your shades’ patterns or colors to your clothing!
The Dress That Says It All
Prepare for the inevitable morning when you wake up with a hangover after a night out and can’t be bothered to put together an outfit. Thankfully, the variety of patterned dresses on Woman Within will make the selection process so much easier for you. A dress that says it all needs little to no styling because it looks good on its own, and really, you just need to wear your shades and sandals to complete the outfit and sip your extra strong coffee in peace.
The Trendy Tote
Travelers need a good-looking bag that is far removed from the bulky luggage they arrived with. What’s more, the bag in question has to have lots of space to fit all the essentials but still remain stylish on the outside. Enter the trendy tote — a 2019 summer obsession in fashion hubs around the world! This fashionable and functional piece is the perfect companion to bring on any trip, and it comes in so many colors and styles. If you have to pick just one or two, the assortment of tote bags from Porter are straightforward and come in olive and navy for both day and night activities. Throw on Yoey’s recommended trendy bag charm and you’re all set to have a great time!
Packing for your summer trip is easy and simple if you keep these essentials in mind. After all, you can never go wrong with versatile pieces that will make every outfit look effortless and stunning at the same time. Just don’t be scared to experiment and adapt the items to your personal style to ensure a truly stylish getaway.
