We put together a collection of looks using the pieces in this travel capsule to show you how many looks you can create utilizing just 11 articles of clothing!  Let’s take a look first at this precious square neck tiered ruffle dress.  A dress like this certainly makes getting dressed in the summer EASY, plain and simple.  Of course, you can wear this dress on its own and have fun accessorizing it…  Some statement earrings, a fun bracelet stack…  Whatever makes you happy!  You can also throw a denim jacket over it for cooler evenings.  And one of our favorite “out of the box” style tips?  Layer your white button-up shirt over the dress tied at the waist for a completely different vibe!  A sidenote on this dress – it is continuously going in and out of stock, so just keep checking.  It also comes in black!

How To Style Printed Pull On Shorts

A pair of printed shorts is a summer essential.  This pair from Anthropologie is one of our long standing favorite pairs for summer!  There are so many fun ways to style these shorts for a long weekend away…  Of course, that white button-up shirt elevates the shorts!  Or, you can keep it more casual with a simple white tank.  Don’t be afraid to mix patterns either – we love a striped tank with this floral pattern.  And every long weekend away in the summer requires a cozy, slouchy sweater (obviously) – the one we are showing below pairs beautifully with these printed shorts for a put together yet comfy look.

Style Inspiration For Denim Shorts

You guys know we love denim shorts for the summer season.  They are perfect for travel…  Because they are a basically a blank palette to pair with almost any top in your suitcase, including your swimsuit!  We love wearing our denim shorts as a cover up of sorts for fun beach and pool days.

A Couple Of Looks With The Striped Maxi Shirtdress

Katey found this striped maxi shirtdress when she was perusing Amazon Prime Day deals, and boy are we glad she did.  This dress is SO perfect for just about any summertime weekend activity and can also double as a swim coverup!  Wear it open over your favorite swimsuit for a stylish poolside look – perfect for heading straight from the pool to lunch or cocktails!  A note on this swimsuit as well…  This swimsuit is also from Amazon and is a go-to for us.  It can trend on the cheeky side depending on your body type, but is oh so flattering!

Styled Looks With The Drawstring Ankle Cargo Pants

A pair of cargo pants or joggers is another summer travel must have.  It’s the perfect way to look put together but also feel comfortable while traveling.  You can also then utilize a piece like this for dressy casual purposes at your destination by pairing them with a white button-up shirt or elevated sweater like we have done below.
