Spring is finally on the horizon, bringing with it the promise of longer, warmer days, balmy nights, and, fingers crossed, golden sunshine. Whether she’s packing for a March getaway or stocking up for next season, Rebecca Tay has five pieces that will have you traveling in style.
The best thing about matching outfits is that when you pack them for a vacation, you have not one, not two, but three outfits. Case in point: this tropical-print tiered ruffle midi skirt and paneled camisole from Club Monaco’s first Resort collection. Obviously, you can wear the pieces together, or you can throw on some shorts with the top to explore during the day, wear the skirt as a super stylish poolside piece with a black bikini, or swap heels and a crisp white shirt with buttons. for a more formal dinner.
If circumstances mean you can’t splurge on new luggage, consider investing in luggage accessories for that can’t-wait-to-pack feeling. Functional pieces like packing cubes or more frivolous, fun pieces like this set of two matte leather lock and key luggage tags are an easy way to upgrade your suitcases and help them stand out on the luggage carousel.
THE SUN IS SHINING
There’s nothing like a new pair of sunglasses to properly prepare you for vacation. If you’ve had your eye on a pair of slim, ’90s-inspired or cat-eye sunglasses, check out this Red Outta Love pair from Le Specs. Affordable enough that you don’t have to worry about how much longer the trend will dominate, they’re stylish, very modern, and even have shatter-resistant and scratch-resistant lenses.
MEETING TO SWIM
Are you looking for a great new swimsuit? Michael Michael Kors’s underwire top and high-waisted bottom with logo belt are as stylish as they come. The best thing about a plain black bikini: The bottom and top always look equally stylish when paired with other swimwear styles or ready-to-wear pieces.
Congratulations to you
A cross between a cowboy hat, a fedora, and a straw hat, this raffia hat from Lauren Ralph is refined yet casual enough to wear on both a poolside lounger and a sandy beach. Adorned with a band of twisted white cord and a gold barrette, the details even have a nautical feel. The bottom line? This is a hat that you can wear anywhere and on any occasion while you are on spring break.
