Beach Vacation: What to Wear to Top Destinations

21 June 2019

Here we are. The weather is mild, the days are getting longer, and when it's about 20 degrees out, we can only think of one thing: beach getaways. Influencers are already flooding our Instagram feed with summer outfits and giving us lots of ideas for future vacation destinations.

Whether you're escaping to the heart of the Cyclades in Greece, travelling to see the blue waters of Maui, or flying to taste the fantastic flavors of Bali, we've created a clothing selection that's perfect for the beach, the patio, strolls around the city, and summer's most spectacular soirees. 

Santorini, Greece

What to wear to vacation like a goddess

A little white dress will go wonderfully with the colors of the cliff-side villages of this Greek island.  Cool, effortless, and perfect for highlighting every skin tone, if you don’t own one yet, now’s the time! Pair it with dainty flat sandals and an essential straw bag. Also test out beautiful beach cover ups that can transition from touring the market to tanning on the sand. We love their pale colors inspired by Santorini’s sky. Slip your one-piece swimsuit on underneath just in case you decide to take a dip in the Mediterranean.  

Marseille, Côte d’Azur

What to wear under an azure sky

With its museums, street art, and eclectic architecture, this Phoenician city instills a definite desire for the avant-garde. And what better than candy-colored tie-dye styles to satisfy this craving? This retro pattern, which is utterly on point for summer 2019, reinvents itself on various silhouettes and works with absolutely everything: denim, a T-shirt, or a nice knit (a must-have for visiting all those air-conditioned art galleries). Before setting off on a stroll around the city, don’t forget to bring a tote bag with all your essentials! When you get to Prado Beach, flaunt your artistic side with a fabulous bikini. Angular prints, asymmetry, and bold colors all the way!

Bali, Indonesia

What to wear while vacationing on the island of the gods

Tempted by a trip to the top of Bali’s mountains? Slip on shorts and a top and you’re good to go! This season, it’s impossible to not pick up a pair of cropped cargo pants. Wear them with a linen top (like a tunic or a loose button-up shirt) and you’ll have the perfect outfit for souvenir hunting. If you prefer something a little lighter, why not choose beach shorts or beach pants? Fluid, versatile, and completely comfy, they’ll add the finishing to your casual look. Underneath your ensemble, slip on a swimsuit with an athletic fit, like a bralette, which will save the day if an opportunity to swim comes your way.

Maui, Hawaii

What to wear for a vacation in paradise

Welcome to the most beautiful beaches in the world! It’s time to enjoy the vivid and crystal-clear waters of this Hawaiian island. For those who love to spend time relaxing on the sand, the bare minimum is enough: a pareo, light sandals, a good sunscreen, and of course, a swimsuit.  This year, there are tons of trends when it comes to swimwear: neon colors, animal prints, polka dots, graphic cutouts… Go with whichever one speaks to you! For those who might like to go wading by one of the waterfalls, layering a linen cover-up or romper over your swimsuit is a great option. And for your feet? Slip on some utility-style sandals in order to walk through the woods and over the rocks that will take you there.

Santa Monica, California

After soaking up a healthy dose of vitamin D on the beach, you’ll want to cool off. Head to Santa Monica pier for a sorbet! Wear something simple and effortless that won’t hug your body too much in case of a sunburn. A summery midi or maxi dress is a perfect pick. There are also elegant beach cover ups that when accessorized right, become an awesome outfit for an evening on the patio. Opt for shell jewelry that’s all the rage right now, as well as hair accessories that will highlight the beachy waves in your hair from the salt water. 

Miami, Florida

What to wear for a vacation in the heart of the Sunshine State?

Miami proves that the colorful and easy life we enjoy at the beach can extend beyond the sand! Day and night, this city is the perfect place to make a statement wearing your boldest styles. If you go out to dinner, a bit of satin, some animal print, bright colors, or avant-garde asymmetry will help you stand out from the crowd. Try these trends on midi dresses, crop tops, and dress pants. To add extra oomph to a darker ensemble, don’t forget to accessorize with a pair of original shoes or an extravagant bag, for example. There’s nothing you can’t wear in Miami!
