At least once per year, we all have to face one common style dilemma. How to pack smartly without carrying our whole closet on vacation? What to wear so we can feel both comfortable and chic? Since every woman’s experience is different, we can’t give you straight answers to this issue. But at least one thing we can do is share our experience and some personal tips that will hopefully help you enjoy your summer vacation style better. We decided to do two style reports based on what we have literally worn on our recent holidays.
My summer vacation style is usually laid back and very relaxed. I try to avoid overpacking with items that I would not wear, but as you know it is impossible. There is always a skirt or a fancy top that makes the trip just for the sake of traveling. Considering that I love active holidays, my luggage is full of comfortable shorts and large tops that will keep me cool in hot weather. I don’t carry stiletto shoes. If I feel the need to elevate my style, block heels, and wedges are my perfect options. In terms of accessories and jewelry, holidays are the perfect timing for my boho bracelets that I don’t wear the rest of the time.
- I bought this beautiful flawless polka dot top two years ago and never wore it until my last trip to Vancouver. It was there in my closet and I could not decide to give it away just because I felt it would have its glory moment. I wore it with a pair of reclaimed Levis shorts and added a glimpse of contrast with statement jewelry and deep red lips.
Rule nr. 1: Wear your denim with T-shirts but don’t be afraid to mix ripped shorts with very feminine and romantic items.
- My summer vacation style includes easy to wear flawless midi skirts. I wore this one with a basic linen and cotton boyfriend shirt.
Rule nr.2: Wear natural fabrics that will allow your body to breathe when the temperatures are hitting high values.
I am not a fan of maxi dresses, but I have to admit they are very useful and comfortable on vacation. You can wear one both to the beach and dress it up with jewelry for a dinner on the patio like I did.
Rule nr.3: Never underestimate a maxi dress.
