That said, here are the coolest vacation outfit ideas to elevate your style and feel like a fashionista all summer long.

Begin With a Good Pair of Jeans

Every aspiring fashionista has to have at least one of these basic pieces in their collection of outfits for vacation. These include jeans, basic tops, shorts, cute shoes, a blazer, and a trendy swimsuit. 

Let’s begin these vacation outfit ideas with jeans. When putting together casual vacation outfits, you won’t go wrong with choosing jeans made from high-quality denim. 

The best thing about jeans is that they are very versatile and they are available in a wide array of designs. For example, these Women’s Fit Mom Blue Jeans with Hand-Painted Pocket are not only comfortable but also chic. The author’s print “Carp Koi” will make you unique and memorable.

Pick a Blazer for Cooler Evenings

On a similar note, every trendsetter needs to have an option for cooler summer nights. If you want the hottest outfits for vacation, we recommend putting on a clean-lined linen jacket such as this Havana Oversized Linen Blazer in Porcelain White. Besides being one of the trendiest summer vacation outfits, oversized blazers are also comfortable and versatile. Namely, you can dress them up or down, depending on the occasion. 

So, if you are getting ready for brunch with your friends and are struggling with casual vacation outfits, a blazer paired with a mini dress and sneakers will look fabulous. A stunning pair of high heels will do the trick if you are going out for dinner.

Think About Your Summer Plans

“Winging” your outfit combo is doable, but sometimes you want to plan things ahead. When packing your outfits for vacation, do the following: Think about your upcoming plans and pick and choose your clothes according to the different spots you are planning to visit and the events you want to attend. 

For instance, if you are going to visit a church or another place of worship, you will want to dress accordingly. For example, the Jane Goodall Silk Le Grand Scarf is a must-have piece if you want to cover up your shoulders or hair. This luxurious scarf will give a dose of elegance to your look, but it is also multi-purpose. Whether you tie it around your wrist or use it to “doll” up your bag, the choice is yours. Also, all of these vacation looks are appropriate for different body shapes and sizes.

Try to Keep it Light

Although you want to be prepared for different occasions, you want to avoid overpacking. So, when planning out your vacation looks, we recommend writing a list down a list of outfits and packing only the essentials. Usually, you won’t need 20 pairs of shorts and 50 T-shirts for a week in Spain. Instead, try packing clothes you can mix and match with other pieces to create different combinations. To save on luggage space, you can also opt for light dresses, such as this Calabar Silk Slip Dress in Mimosa Yellow. Sometimes one stunning dress will do much more for your style than a dozen random shorts! 

Go for Specific Travel Clothes

Although you want to save space and travel light, you also want to feel good in your skin throughout your vacation. One of the best vacation outfit ideas to feel fresh and comfortable is to bring travel clothes that you will only wear when flying or getting to the final destination. Why? Because you don’t want to go to dinner in the same leggings, you traveled in the entire day. Instead, choose casual vacation outfits such as hoodies, joggers, and comfortable leggings that you will strictly use as travel clothes.

Now, no one said you have to look boring in a hoodie. If you want to showcase your style and bring out your personality, look for a fashionable piece like this Pink Hoodie. The unique cut draws attention, and it looks good on every body shape. Most importantly, it’s comfy.

Choose the Right Shoes

Stilettos, pumps, flip-flops, mules – the choices for vacation outfit ideas are endless. None of these vacation looks will be complete without a comfortable pair of shoes. However, choosing the right pair of shoes for your summer trip can be challenging. 

We recommend putting your comfort first. Even if you think you won’t be walking a lot, you will probably need a good pair of sneakers or sandals to explore the city or walk along the shoreline. 

When packing, choose a mix of comfortable and supportive sandals and a basic pair of tennis shoes. If the word “basic” is not in your vocabulary, you can also opt for a classic comfort fit such as these Borås – Grape Leather Classic Sneakers – Latte.

What to Wear and What to Skip This Summer 2022

Here are some of the hottest trends we’re going to see more of during the summer and some “not-so-hot” options that are better left in your closet. Of course, if you like some of these pieces, wear them with confidence. At the end of the day, your attitude is what matters.

With that in mind, here are some fashion staples for this summer:

-Maxi skirts

-Cottage-core dresses

-Flat slide sandals

-Saturated colors (hot pink, lemon yellow, vibrant orange, Bottega Green)

-Maxi knit dresses

-Baseball hats

-Tailored pleated shorts

-Fisherman sandals

On the flip side, here are some pieces that haven’t made the trending list for the summer of 2022:

-Bucket hats

-Flat-front shorts

-Baby doll dresses

-Checkered prints

How to Look Good in Anything?

Before you hit the stores or order clothes online, you want to be mindful of the following tips and tricks. These tips will help you pick out the most flattering pieces for your upgraded wardrobe. 

Firstly, choose the right fit for your body shape and your size. If you pick clothes that are too small, you may look disproportional. On the other hand, clothes that are too big can make you look “frumpy” and ruin your entire look. 

Curvy women will look great in outfits that accentuate the waist, so try to pick outfits that are form-fitting and structured. A flattering V-cut neckline will also help elongate your neck and give you an irresistible feminine flair.

Finally, look for the latest color trends. This summer, colors such as yellow and pink will rule. Nevertheless, no matter which colors you choose, make sure that they suit your skin complexion and hair color. For instance, blonds shine in pink, while women with black hair look fantastic in yellow or green. 

All in all, wear what you feel good in. Choose breathable and comfortable materials that don’t make you sweat. Also, have fun! Putting a summer outfit together should be exciting and enjoyable.
