An extravagantly wide straw hat. A billowy maxi dress that floats in the breeze. A luxe pair of white sunglasses. There are just some pieces that seem practically tailor-made for a weekend away or a jaunt abroad. Wearing them in day-to-day life is all good and fine, but these pieces really shine when you plop them in a vacation setting. This season, Michael Kors and Sunglass Hut have all the highly-packable pieces that definitely belong in your suitcase, like the sunglasses you’ll want to wear with all your swimsuits and the dress that’s begging to be worn for a night out. And if you don’t have any upcoming travel plans just yet, treat these getaway-worthy finds as the excuse you need to make some.
Tortoiseshell frames are a classic for a reason — they go with literally everything. With the bold square shape and gleaming oversized hardware, these sunglasses make a statement. Throw them on with bright whites for a bit of contrast or pair them with saturated shades for an on-trend take.
Between the bright abstract print, skin-baring cut-outs, and relaxed jersey fabric, this dress is the outfit equivalent of a good time — you can’t not have fun while wearing it. The best part is it looks just as good next to the pool as it does out to dinner and drinks.
You can never go wrong with a timeless black bikini, like this underwire top and high-waisted bottoms set. It’s sleek and sophisticated, with a belt that adds a little something extra.
This cotton eyelet set is the perfect balance between sweet and sultry, and is surprisingly versatile. Case in point: Dress it down with sneakers during the day, wear it as a coverup over a swimsuit, and swap to heeled sandals and sparkly accessories for nighttime.
These sunglasses upgrade a traditional pilot shape with a bright white colorway and delicate hardware that feels fresh for summer. They’re the ideal companion to your pool or beach attire, but would look equally polished alongside dressier options, too.
Cool Cargo Pants
If you commit to one trend this season, make it cargo pants. The streamlined, slightly cropped cut of these comes across more sophisticated than sloppy for an elevated take. Go a size up for a relaxed fit.
If platform sandals have a natural habitat, it would be on vacation. Play up the ‘70s vibe with wide-leg bottoms or a breezy maxi dress.
Cotton Poplin Set
It’s effortless, it’s unbothered, it’s giving “out of office” — we’re talking, of course, about a cotton poplin set. The boxy, cropped button-down and breezy midi skirt are the easiest, comfiest things to throw on (and look like you tried), whether you’re headed on a plane, out for lunch, or to the couch for a quick nap (yes, they’re that comfy).
These camel sunglasses are the perfect accessory for when your outfit calls for something a little more tonal. The modern, oversized square shape and luxe gold hardware bring a hint of glamor to finish any look.
Need a going out dress? Look no further than this little black number. With its curve-hugging silhouette, eye-catching neckline, and (deceptively comfy) ribbed texture, this dress is the moment.
Bright Crossbody Bag
A vibrant lime hue makes this classic leather crossbody bag the ultimate summer sidekick. Bright whites, playful patterns, juicy colors — there’s nothing this bag won’t pop against.
These oversized hoop earrings tap into the current chain-link jewelry trend in an unexpected way. They make a statement on their own, but for a more dramatic effect, layer them with other gold earrings or necklaces.
