Travel In Style This Summer With Our July Capsule Wardrobe

July 5th, 2017

What to pack to look your best on vacation

We’re continuing our Capsule Wardrobe series this month with a focus on summer vacation and travel. While a summer vacation is most certainly about rest and relaxation, that doesn’t mean your style needs to take a vacation as well. There are definitely ways to keep it relaxed and stay tailored and dapper at the same time. And that’s what the 10 pieces in our July collection are all about.

STILL IN STYLE: Check out our June Capsule Wardrobe

Here are the 10 pieces:

– Cream linen blazer
Pattered blazer
Lightweight light blue denim shirt
Black polo shirt
– Printed shirt
– Khaki linen pants
Stone/white cotton pants
Panama hat
– Brown horse bit loafers
Black espadrilles

And here are several ways to style them.

Airport Ready

There are a few key things to keep in mind when considering your airport style. Be sure to wear a pair of loafers. They’re easy to slip on and off, which makes traveling through the security line that much easier. If you are bringing two blazers on your trip, wear one to the airport to save it from getting wrinkled in your suitcase. (Remember, even if you know how to pack it, wrinkles are unavoidable.) When you get on the plane, simply remove it, fold it once lengthwise and then in half again and stow in the overhead compartment. And if you plan to bring a hat, it is best to wear it to the airport rather than pack it in a bag.

Resort Dinner

A nice dinner at your resort is the time to break out your best sport coat. Keep it casual with a lightweight denim shirt and cotton trousers and finish the look off with a fun pair of loafers.

Day Tripping

Comfort and style do not have to be mutually exclusive. A short sleeve printed shirt and linen pants will keep you cool in both the looks and temperature departments. Espadrilles are a great utility shoe and a hat will save your face from the sun’s rays.

Island Cocktails

A few tweaks make the last look more appropriate for sunset cocktails. Throw on your sport coat and swap your linen trousers for a more structured cotton pair with a cuff.

Pool Lounging

Never underestimate the power of a simple polo shirt. Focus on a few accessories to kick it up a notch. And if it gets a little warmer, roll up your pant legs and dip your feet in the pool.

Return Flight
