When summer hits and vacation time gets closer, you know you can”t take your closet with you. Yet, you want options when it comes to a fashionable fun-filled getaway. What you wear for an afternoon of sightseeing will, no doubt, look entirely different compared to your style for a beachside dinner date. Fear not jet set divas! We chose eight key pieces that, when mixed and matched, will deliver eleven different looks. It”s a simple color palette with a few neutral essentials. When paired with pops of color and interesting patterns, you have close to a dozen looks with plenty of pizzazz.
Marrying neutral items will deliver a classy vibe. This is a perfect base for your vacation wardrobe. Light and breezy colors will allow you to feel comfortable yet still be chic. Three core outfits will extend into a plethora of other statement outfits, perfect for gallivanting around your destination.
Pick a color that makes you beam with joy and make that your go-to hue. Make your focal color one that you”ve loved for years and complements your complexion. Be the brightest, happiest you on vacation and choose a cheerful shade that enhances the excitement of your escape.
When you have flexibility in your style, you”ll find that most times, you end up with outfits that are far more adventurous than imagined. What about a skirt that doubles as a top? We don’t often feel as comfortable in the same weight in material on our bottom half as we do our top half. But when it is reversible, dark colored and double lined you can’t go wrong. Choose a cut that is A-lined with a waistband that is slightly thicker than the norm. Make sure that when you try it on, the band doesn”t cut across your chest in an unflattering way. After a quick mirror check, you”ve got one piece that can be reversed, flipped and used in a savvy way that your suitcase will love.
Instead of extra flair, keep your accessorizing to a minimum. Pack two nude sandals — one with height for evening affairs and a modest flat for wandering. Try online casino mix and match jewelry as well. The illusion of layering necklaces and then using them as separates gives the perfect finishing touch to each get-up. Keep the jewelry classic and modest so that you can wear it numerous times during the week.
