Summer vacation is not thriving without some new baddie outfits thrown into the mix to get you excited for your trip away. Whether you’re going solo being an independent baddie, traveling with your besties, or even taking your first adventure with your lover, your carry-on needs some new essentials.

Speaking of carry-on, we all know the politics – you’ve got to be scrupulous with your packing when it comes to slipping that baby in the overhead compartment. That’s why selecting vacay outfits is an art form. You’ll want them to be versatile, light, and preferably not something that needs to be ironed. Here are a few pieces for your trip.

Resort Wear

If you’re doing Spoilt Girl Summer and splashing some cash on a nice hotel from your IG saveds, you’re going to need some fancy frocks to strut around the resort in. We’ve got you. Neutrals set the tone nicely. Pair our One-Shoulder Cutout Midi Dress in vanilla (it also comes in shocking pink, which is also a vibe), a cream clutch, matching strappy heels, and some simple gold jewelry. The midsection cutout and leg slit are super flattering, and the fabric falls effortlessly over your curves. This one looks great cradling an Aperol Spritz at the sunset bar or taking in the view at the hotel restaurant.

The thing we love about this dress is that you can also wear it out at night to the local bars and clubs. It’s perfect for beach town nightwear as well as being a classy daytime piece for the hotel.

Beachwear: The Swim Cover-Up Dress

This season, we are really loving the swim cover-up dress. They’re great for days at the beach when you’ve been laying out getting crispy and then need some sun protection. They also double as chic dresses for transitioning from the beach to the local café or bar. Pack our Floral Print Swim Cover-Up Dress in your suitcase to throw on over your bikini – the ideal beach vacation outfit with a sexy leg slit to show off your new tan. This beauty is light, doesn’t need ironing, and takes up virtually no space in your suitcase.


If you’ve got a big day of sightseeing ahead of you and you want to avoid that tourist stereotype, we suggest replacing the baseball cap with a cute bucket hat and your fanny pack with a light backpack. You’ll want to wear something practical and with pockets for convenience. Think denim shorts and a crop.

For your beach vacay, our Tropical Floral Print Cropped Shirt is your bestie. Wear it buttoned up or undone with a cute bikini or cami underneath. Throw on a pair of high-waisted denim shorts and some white sneakers to complete the ‘fit. If you’re getting your steps in while out and about in a new town, you’ll want to be as comfy as possible. That’s why this cropped shirt is an excellent choice because it protects your shoulders from the sun and is light and breezy. Go for a plain bucket hat to amplify the cuteness.

The Dressy-Casual Beach Vacation Outfit

As well as the casual sightseeing attire, we recommend throwing a dressier top into your suitcase. This is something that you can wear both day and night, depending on how you style it. Our Smocked Off-the-Shoulder Crop Top is great worn with your high-waisted denim shorts and white sneakers for a relaxed day vibe. For a more evening look, you can throw your strappy heels on and rock it with your cream clutch and gold jewelry, that way you’re being resourceful with what you’re packing in your carry-on.

Nothing screams summer vacation more than linens. Our Linen-Blend Tie-Front Mini Dress is another great addition to your suitcase because it can be easily worn as a chic day dress or styled for the club. Also, the stunning blue water hue complements your bangin’ ocean view photoshoots nicely.
