If like us, you have a seemingly endless bucket list of destinations you want to explore, it’s likely you’ll be embarking on a tropical vacation in the near future. After numerous overseas holidays, interstate trips and local stay-cays, we’ve got planning an itinerary down to a fine art, however when it comes to packing the right pieces there’s certainly room for improvement.

If there’s one thing we’ve learnt from receiving eye-watering oversized baggage fees and lugging around a heavy suitcase, it’s to plan your vacation outfits ahead of time.

Whether you’re spending summer in the Mediterranean or enjoying an interstate holiday to visit loved ones, we’ve curated a few vacation-worthy looks to inspire you to plan ahead and take the stress and chaos out of packing.

A Casual Lunch

Immersing yourself in the local culture and cuisine is the ultimate way to experience any new destination. Whether you’re stopping at a humble café for a quick bite to eat or indulging in a long lunch in the afternoon sun, opt for an outfit that combines comfort and style. Look for an A-line midi dress in a flowing fabric and pair with leather sandals or a low heel and a neutral cross body bag. This versatile look will suit whatever your day brings, taking you from a casual lunch to afternoon drinks and beyond.

A statement colour block is the perfect way to level up a simple outfit. Pair a bold, bright midi with sandals and a cross body bag in a coordinating shade for an effortless yet stylish look.

An Afternoon Boat Trip

From a day spent exploring hidden coves along the coast of a Mediterranean island, to a tropical island-hopping adventure, a simple lightweight outfit will keep you cool and comfortable. Opt for a breathable, soft fabric in a comfortable style that can be worn over your swimsuit, such as a flowy mini dress or two-piece pant set and team it with a rattan bag, sandals and an oversized straw hat.

A two-piece set is the ideal versatile piece to pack for your next trip and can be worn together, or separate for a number of different looks. Pictured left is the Alani Pants and coordinating top.

A Day of Sightseeing

When exploring a new destination, it’s likely you’ll spend hours on your feet searching for hidden gems and ticking off the must-see tourist attractions. For days spent sightseeing, pack an outfit that is easy to wear, lightweight and can be paired with your favourite sandals or sneakers. A chic mini dress is perfect for sunny days, or a tiered maxi will keep you warmer as the evening sets in. Finish the look with a pair of oversized sunglasses and your hair in a loose bun.
