Relax at a resort

If you plan on spending most of your vacation poolside, you’ll want to pack at least two pairs of swimming trunks. This way, you’ll have a pair to wear while the other dries. A tailored pair of swim shorts can easily be transitioned and worn with a T-shirt for a casual lunch. But for something more refined, try adding a micro-patterned shirt instead. Slip on some canvas sneakers and add a straw hat to tie it all together.

On the go in a city

Jet-setting to a new city is exciting because it means exploring new places and trying lots of new things. For this, make sure you have a versatile outfit that’s appropriate to wear just about anywhere. Khakis and a linen button-up are smart choices because they’re conducive to keeping you cool and comfortable. Then, skip the sneakers in favor of sleek loafers to play up the polished feel of the outfit.

Recharge in nature

This is where easy does it. A simple outfit created from essentials is ideal for any time spent in nature. Keep it classic with a T-shirt and jeans combination, but select pieces from a neutral color palette. Not only will this ensure the ability to create multiple outfit combinations, it’ll also reflect the hues of your surroundings. Don’t forget to pack a pair of sunglasses and bring a backpack to carry your necessities.
