The secret to winning a warm weather escape? A suitcase full of looks that multi-task as much as you do. From beach jaunts to BBQs, you have to be ready for anything. Read on for your stylist-approved 5-piece packing list.
1. The Do-Anything Dress
Midi, mini or maxi, be sure to come prepared with a dress that can go from picnic to party in minutes.
2. The Colorful Crossbody
A bright bag is outfit caffeine. Give your black tote a break and rent something with a hint of personality. Go for a crossbody if your trip is action-packed.
3. The Layerable Jacket
JACKET: REBECCA TAYLOR
Hanging by the water? Throw a light jacket over your favorite white tee and high-waisted denim to combat unexpected chill. Don’t forget fresh white sneakers.
4. The French-Girl Skirt
When there’s no time to change between beach time and date night, a flowing skirt is your friend. This French-girl favorite will make you feel put together in a flash.
5. The Retro Top
TOP: TORY BURCH
Channel old school cool in a top with a feminine touch. Think lace, eyelet, florals. Throw it over a pair of cropped culottes for the full effect.
