Traveling Guide: Spring Vacation Wardrobe
Getting away from it all for a bit? Your vacation wardrobe should be just like your plan: laid-back but totally fabulous. Whether you’re taking a simple beach trip or going somewhere extremely exotic, use this guide as your stylist vacation packing list. MakeMeChic’s spring packing list is your ultimate minimalist guide to packing light in high-style. Whether you are a fashionista or a no-frills traveler, this guide acts as the perfect check list for your traveling essentials.
1- Versatile top
You need a simple top that will match multiple outfits. This can be a solid tank, crop top or t shirt that you feel comfortable in and can style in several different ways.
A pretty sundress that can double as a swimsuit cover-up is an essential for any spring trip. Find one that makes you feel beautiful and comfortable. Pastel shades are on-trend for spring, but don’t be shy from colors and bold prints.
A good neutral skirt will go with any top that you pack. But if you want to stand out, try a floral midi skirt with a bright pattern. Skirts with daring, front-facing or side splits are the sexiest trend to come around this spring. Keep the rest of your look simple and add neon-red lipstick for a date night on a romantic getaway.
Slim yet slouchy and cropped, is our new favorite take on stylish denim. Dress up your boyfriend jeans with blazer and some kitten-heel pumps or stay casual with flat sandals and a flowy top.
A comfortable and stylish pair of sandals hardly takes up any room in your suitcase and can escalate any simple outfit. Make sure you pick a pair that is both chic and comfortable to walk in. You may want to choose a pair that looks presentable in places other than the beach in case you decide to dine in a fancy restaurant.
6- Single sole heels
Black doesn’t quite work with spring’s light pastel colors and skin-tone matching heels are slightly overplayed. Try opting for white single sole heels this season as a fun update to your spring wardrobe. White heels will give you a clean, sophisticated look that you can take from the office to your vacation getaway.
The number one must have item for a warm weather vacation is an over-the-top swimsuit. For this, go big or go home. You have been working out all year just for this right? Rock that cute cutout one piece suit or even metallic or neon two pieces. You deserve to show off a little.
Bring one or two show-stopping pieces that will add some serious flare to any outfit. Cute accessories can definitely give you that edgy vibe or make you look and feel like a million bucks! Don’t be afraid to try something new; the perfect time to experiment with different looks is when you travel. You will feel renewed and invigorated with some simple additions to your wardrobe such as a colorful necklace or some bold midi rings.
Having a cross-body bag is perfect for traveling, sightseeing or night out on the town. The small size makes it easy to carry everything you need without weighing you down. However, bringing a double-duty bag that can hold everything as a carry-on and also be used as a regular daily handbag is a great option too.
A good pair of sunnies is a must-have for spring and summer. Cat eye sunglasses or aviators are very popular right now, so try on a pair. Whether you decide to hit the sand and surf or travel somewhere far, having a pair of trendy sunglasses is definitely important for protecting your eyes from the sun’s rays as well as adding to your relaxed vacation look.
One of the best ways to brighten your face is to dab a bit of color on your lips, even if you wear the simplest outfit. So go with the universally flattering tones like pink or peach; using a lip stain will give you a more natural look over lipstick. Use BB cream or CC cream for your skin. This acts as a multi-purpose tool, providing moisture, coverage.
Sunblock protects your skin from cancer and aging by absorbing and reflecting UVA and UVB radiation. Protect yourself from the sun with a sunblock that has at least SPF 30 or higher and don’t forget to re-apply accordingly.
