Wherever you head on vacation, you need head-turning, head-to-heel looks that match your destination. In other words, you need a thoughtfully crafted travel wardrobe.
To get you on your way, we put together several travel-ready outfits from our women’s fashion collection that are ideal for different trips to destinations around the globe or different days within a single trip. Each unique look is naturally beautiful, comfortable, and always photo ready.
1 | Beach to Bistro
It’s clear you don’t have a care in the world. And why should you? The sun is warm, the sand is soft, and you’ve got a great book tucked into your bag. Whether you’re in the Maldives or Madagascar or Miami on this perfect beach day, the only dilemma you face is deciding what time to head to the nearby bistro for lunch. Part of your ease is your versatile, resort-ready outfit. Laid-back in a bikini top and relaxed denim shorts, paired with strappy sandals, a featherweight alpaca sweater, an artful bracelet, and a hand-printed scarf to tie around your neck, your wrist, or the strap of your playful yet practical raffia bag.
2 | Bohemian Chic
You might be spending the morning at the Museo Puget in Ibiza or the afternoon at the Temple of Srirangam in India; either way, your artful attire is as eye-catching as the sketches in the museum or the shrines in the temple. Start with a beautifully embroidered blouse paired with laid-back linen shorts or sleek, straight-leg jeans. Add the elegant drape of an artisan scarf, the ease of a 3-in-1 woven leather bag, and cool cutout boots that are just right across several seasons (and time zones).
3 | Garden Party
Perhaps it’s a pleasurable few hours at the Petrin Gardens in Prague or your best friend’s backyard garden party; no matter the place, your flirty floral look will outshine even the most becoming blossoms. It all starts with a fun and flattering ruffled silk skirt and an essential organic-cotton shirt or, for something a little more festive, a compliment-inspiring silk dress, adorned with an agate strand necklace worn long or looped, sultry suede espadrilles, and the 3-in-1 backpack of your dreams that easily converts to a cross-body or shoulder bag.
4 | Modern Sophisticate
When you travel to any big city around the globe, you want to stand out for all the right reasons with an outfit that’s chic, confident, and comfortable. Fostering your own urban renewal, this look kicks things off with a supersoft silk cami and white-denim jeans topped with a modern leather jacket. From this beautiful base, it’s all about the accessories: a pair of unique teardrop earrings, comfy perforated mules, a refined yet lively scarf, a bold geo cuff, and a small but mighty clutch, which converts in a flash to a cross-body or shoulder bag should the need arise.
The world is waiting. Get out there — with just-right, just-you style — and enjoy every last bit of it.
