When it comes to summer, we’re all about planning that perfect getaway to lands beyond and finding our personal oasis. But when it comes to packing the essentials – that’s where we get a little lost.
But never fear! We’ve carefully curated a list of our top six vacation must-haves to help get you ready for your ultimate summer vacay. Read on to discover our picks and get some inspo for yourself.
1. THE SEXY SWIMSUIT
Our number one vacay essential? Definitely the perfect sexy swimsuit. If you’re going to be lounging poolside or beachside, this piece is an absolute must-have.
Influencer Gina Ybarra is the perfect source for endless swimsuit inspiration – this flirtatious two-piece gingham suit is totally on trend and right up our alley.
We’re totally into the high-waisted trend that’s taking over Summer 2018, too, like in this fabulous look from Marta Lozano. So flattering and perfect for all body types!
2. THE STATEMENT SHADES
Nothing is better for throwing shade at your haters than the perfect pair of statement sunglasses. Not only are they super practical for long days lounging in the sunshine, but they’re the perfect way to add an edgy touch to your look by simply throwing them on and going.
When it comes to statement shades, influencer Francis Lola from sunny Los Angeles, CA is our favorite source of inspo. We love these cherry red cat-eye shades – so on trend!
If a classic style is a little more up your alley, go for a neutral or tortoiseshell cat-eye for a look that’s still super chic and stylish.
3. THE BOHO BELT
When it comes to summer looks, you can’t go wrong with the ultimate boho belt in your wardrobe arsenal. Endlessly versatile and undeniably chic, these pieces are ultra-flattering and super easy to wear.
Not only does it tie your outfit together perfectly, but a great boho belt is perfect for cinching in your figure and accenting feminine curves!
Take it from influencer superstar Danielle Bernstein – sometimes a belt is all you need to tie your look together from head to toe!
4. THE FABULOUS FLAT SANDAL
No matter where you’re headed on your ultimate vacation, packing the perfect footwear is of the utmost importance. And on the docket for our 2018 adventures? Super comfortable and utterly fabulous flat sandals.
This summer, we’re all about the classic slide sandal. Just like influencer Caroline Daur, we’re totally in love with its easy wear and chic look.
On the other hand, we’re also in love with the super strappy flat sandal trend. This style instantly adds a dressed up effect to any look and is super comfortable to wear no matter where your vacay adventures take you.
5. THE CARRY-ALL BAG
One of the hardest things while you’re traveling is carrying everything you need with you from place to place. We’re all about the carry-all bag for toting your sunscreen, sunglasses, and those three lip glosses you totally might need from place to place.
When you’re running from location to location and heading out to dinner immediately after, the perfect mid-sized crossbody bag may just be your new BFF.
But if you’re in need of some more serious storage, opt for a larger tote bag like this gorgeous piece from influencer Marina Moss.
6. THE PERFECT TOPPER
When it comes to vacation and sunny locales, you always need the perfect hat. Not only does it tie your look together perfectly, but it helps protect your skin from damaging rays, too.
Take it from supermodel Chanel Iman, whether you’re riding horses through the countryside or hitting the beach, you should always finish your look with the perfect hat.
No matter where you’re headed for your ultimate summer getaway, make sure to pack the perfect slightly oversized hat with an extended brim to keep you feeling and looking undeniably cool girl chic.
