As soon as February hits, it’s obvious to many that winter just isn’t their thing (guilty). So—naturally—you begin plotting your escape to warm, sandy destinations. Before you know it, your plane ticket is booked and PTO is on the calendar. You’ll be too busy daydreaming of sunbathing and tasty tropical drinks to give your packing list much thought, so we’ve taken care of it for you. Here are 5 vacation outfits perfect for a tropical destination.
Take-off to Touch Down
White jeans paired with a colorful cardigan and printed blouse is a TSA-friendly look that will allow you to head from airport to resort without skipping a beat. Once the warmer temps start to hit, simply ditch the outer layer and soak up the sun. You’ll love how comfortable yet stylish this get-up is for your long day of travel. Hey—once you hit those sandy shores, it’ll be totally worth it.
A.M to P.M
An easy way to nail a fashion-forward and functional outfit is to opt for Bermuda shorts instead of classic cut-offs. This trendy silhouette looks great paired with a white denim jacket (yes, denim on denim is still a thing) and a bold blouse. The best part about this easy ensemble is that it works for all hours of the day. Simply swap sneakers for sandals for an effortless transition.
No tropical getaway is complete without a pair of palm print palazzo pants. Their wide-leg silhouette makes for plenty of versatile vacation outfits whether you use them as a swimsuit cover-up or dress them up for patio drinks. For a boho-inspired look, pair them with a fitted tank, wide-brimmed fedora, and artisan accessories.
If you’re going for seriously relaxing and totally stress-free, a breezy wrap dress is as easy as it gets. This casual summer dress works whether you’re taking a beachside stroll or sitting down for a sunset dinner. Complete your look with a circle bag (so on-trend) and a packable fedora. This UV-protecting hat rolls up into a tiny shape that frees up all kinds of space in your suitcase.
On the Move
Adventure seekers who aren’t content with just chillin’ on the beach need an outfit that fits for an action-packed day. These bright and stretchy shorts bring your warm-weather outfits to the next level and make exploring a breeze. Pair them with a printed tie-front blouse to keep you cool and finish your look with low-maintenance accessories.
