Take the capsule wardrobe  approach when packing for your next getaway. 

Packing for vacation has this stigma that you should throw everything and the kitchen sink into your suitcase. Whether you’re staying for four days or three weeks, it seems like we’ve yet to crack the code when it comes to simplifying packing for vacation. But you don’t have to overthink it!

We’re taking the capsule wardrobe approach and rounding up must-haves you need for any summer vacation. These are basic pieces that you can mix and match, throw on or throw over, and use over and over again to make the most out of your vacation wardrobe.

Let’s get started!

The Basic White Shirt
This versatile piece can be worn so many ways - tucked into your favorite jeans, thrown over a dress, used as a bathing suit cover-up, and more. Shop J.Crew Cross Dyed Irish Linen Popover Shirt.
Boyfriend Jeans
You don't have to sacrifice style for comfort even when you're on vacation. These denim jeans can be dressed up or down and thrown on without any pulling or fussing. Shop KUT FROM THE KLOTH Catherine Boyfriend Jeans.
Knit Cardigan
You definitely want a wrap or cardigan to throw on when those summer nights get a little chilly. Shop H&M's Fine-knit Cardigan.
Reversible Swimwear
You probably don't need half a dozen bikinis for your next beach getaway. Try reversible swimwear instead to pack lighter and get 2 bathing suits for the price of one! Shop Dolce Vita Solids Reversible High Cut One-Piece.
Tote
This bag can double as a beach tote or your purse for the day! We'll let you decide which mood you're in. Shop Veronica Metallic Woven Tote.
Walkable Heel
We love a good heel, but when you're on vacation, you're searching for that shoe that's dressier than a flip-flop but more comfortable than your weekend stilettos. Search no more. Shop ALDO Villarosa.
Tank Dress
Like we said before, there's a fine line between dressy and casual when it comes to vacation. This dress is that perfect in-between giving you multiple options to play with. Shop Leith Tank Dress.
