Summer Vacation Wardrobe – The Essentials

I love prepping for summer vacation. Summer fashion is so freeing and feminine and I love picking out new bits to take away with me, as well as pulling together new outfits from what I already have.

As I’ve been running through my vacation wardrobe this year, there are definitely some staples that are a must-have for a holiday. No matter what your style, I think these summer vacation essentials will apply to everyone. They are, for sure, coming away with me!

The Maxi Dress

Everyone loves a good maxi dress, no? My favourite thing about maxi dresses is the ability to style them in so many ways. You can throw one over a bikini with flip flops to hit the beach, you can wear the same one with heels and layered jewellery to dinner and you can even add ankle boots and a leather jacket back at home. So versatile.

The Kimono

I’ve recently found a love for beautiful kimonos. Not only can you wear it as a chic cover-up around the pool with a one-piece swimsuit, but you can wear one over an LBD to add some detail to your look and make it slightly dressier. I really love things that you can wear in multiple ways.

The Floral Skirt

Whether it’s a mini with ruffles or a floaty midi with a split, the floral skirt will forever be one of my favourite vacation staples. I love to wear floral prints with white in the summer so I’d pair them with anything from a cute crop top to a basic oversized tee or even a white bodysuit. This vibe works really well with mules, either heeled or flat!

The Raffia or Straw Bag

This is definitely the bag of the season this year and I just love it for summer. A straw bag instantly reminds us of the beach but there are now some really cute mini straw bags that can double as an evening bag on vacay.

The Wedges

The wedge is a classic holiday shoe. It’s comfortable when you’re on the move, but the right style can look ultra-chic as well. I love a lace up wedge that’s not too high. Paired with a midi skirt or dress or even high-waisted shorts, it’s one of my favourite summer looks.

The Slides

Slides have been huge again this year in terms of being on-trend, but there are just so many to choose from! You can go sporty and simple or ornate and luxury, which I just love. Plus, they go with everything and are insanely comfortable, perfect for holiday.

The Wrap Dress

Thanks to Diane Von Furstenberg the wrap dress is eternally a womenswear classic. It’s also perfect for vacation. Wrap dresses are definitely one of those pieces that you can wear through the day and then, with just a change of shoes, it’s instantly an evening look. So handy, especially if you’re packing light for a shorter trip.

I’m not so great at packing light, so there are quite a few more things that could easily have made it to my vacation essentials list, but these items are sitting at the top. I couldn’t go away without my summer staples, what are yours?
