If you’re a fashion person, going on vacation isn’t just about the destination. It’s about the clothing and accessories you bring along for the ride. Deciding what to pack starts with pinpointing the vibe you want to emulate. Tropical glamour? Coastal grandma? Resort opulence? Now’s your time to experiment and ask yourself who you want to be on vacation.
Part of the fun is wearing things that may not normally fit into your everyday rotation at home. If you’re heading somewhere warm, allow bright colors, vibrant prints, and beachy textures like raffia and linen to take center stage. Maybe show a little more skin or swap your leather tote for a basket bag. Choosing photo-worthy pieces that are easy to mix and match is also a must.
Most importantly, have fun with your destination wardrobe. The goal is to look as effortless and as relaxed as you’ll be feeling.
Old Navy Linen-Blend Boyfriend Shirt
Swap your typical white button-down for one with a little more flair. For even more of a statement, throw on the matching shorts. It’s an off-duty look that’s just as stylish as it is comfortable.
Hutch Soto Romper
The ultimate I’m-on-vacation, one-and-done look. From the pattern to the color palette, this bold, retro-inspired romper has fun written all over it.
Old Navy One-Shoulder Rib-Knit Midi Dress
While you can never go wrong with an LBD, on vacation, we suggest a punchier hue. This shade of tangerine will pair beautifully with a tan.
Grey Bandit Kai Choker
Leave your string of pearls at home. This colorful necklace will add instant vacay vibes to any top you pair it with.
Trovata Joni Dress
We love a versatile piece that serves multiple purposes — especially while traveling. Throw this dress over a swimsuit for a chic cover-up or style it with a belt and heeled sandals for lunch on the boardwalk.
Old Navy V-Neck Halter Top
Every suitcase needs a multifunctional top like this one. No matter what bottoms you pair it with, you’ll look put-together.
Clergerie Charline Sandals
Allow these sandals to save you some valuable suitcase real estate. We assure you they’ll go with everything.
Hunza G Julia Bikini
Every warm-weather retreat requires a swimwear option or two. This quality set is one-size-fits-most and is especially flattering.
Old Navy Linen-Blend Trouser Shorts
The shorter version of your favorite work trouser, these shorts are polished and, thanks to linen, laid-back at the same time.
Rylee & Cru Cooler Tote
A stylish tote bag and cooler all in one. It’s the ideal way to keep your snack stash chilled while hanging at the beach.
Cult Gaia Kumi Hat
Although the concept of a straw sunhat is classic, the bucket shape makes this one especially on-trend. It also features flecks of gold so you’ll be shimmering in the sun.
Old Navy Twist-Front Maxi Dress
Sophisticated on the bottom, off-duty up top, this dress is an elevated yet relaxed option that was made for vacation.
Paco Rabanne XL Link Drop Earrings
These earrings will liven up even the most neutral of vacation outfits.
Saint Laurent Cat Eye Sunglasses
A refreshing alternative to black, these are the only pair of sunglasses you’ll need to pack.
L*Space Gold Dust Skirt
Is any waterside trip complete without a little crochet? This skirt makes a beautiful cover-up and we love it even more with the coordinating top.
Cesta Collective Metallic Mélange Lunchpail
If you only bring one purse, make it this one. It might just be the chicest basket bag we’ve ever seen.
