8 Must-Have Travel Capsule Wardrobe Items for a Smokin' Hot Summer Vacation

Getting ready for your holiday? If so, you should start building your travel capsule wardrobe ASAP.
As you may know, this planning method has many advantages. For starters, a capsule wardrobe allows you to travel light. Plus, you'll be able to skip most of the packing process – perfect if you hate this part of traveling!
The secret of a good capsule wardrobe list is that you only need a few items to craft countless unique looks. By mixing and matching these pieces, you can enjoy your holiday in style.
Here are eight items to include in your capsule wardrobe this summer.

1. A Straw Hat

Let's start things off with the iconic sun hat. Oversized sun hats protect your face from the rays while helping you look fabulous at the same time! They come in many styles including Panama, fedora, and boater. Choose one that fits your personality so you can wear it with whatever outfit you choose.

2. A Classic Tee

There's a good reason white t-shirts remain a vacation wardrobe staple – they go with anything. A classic tee is great for layering but works fine on its own as well. Whether you want to dress down or jazz up, you can't go wrong with a classic tee.  And who knew there were so many options when choosing a staple item? From v-neck to scoop neck or crew cut, you can switch things up based on whatever neckline flatters you most.

3. Comfortable Pants

A summer holiday is a perfect time to say goodbye to boring jeans! Instead, get a pair of lightweight wide-leg pants. Many of these pieces are both pretty and practical, allowing you to relax while taking in the sights.

4. A Flattering Swimsuit

Sure, swimsuits don't take up much space in your luggage by default. That said, do you really need more than one or two pieces? Find a swimsuit that flatters your body type and wears it every time you hit the beach.

5. A Day-to-Night Dress

Looking to get more use out of a single dress? Consider wearing it in different situations, regardless of the time of day. Choose a dress that transforms with a simple change of shoes and accessories. Both midi and maxi-length dresses can fit the bill here. Also, stick to lightweight fabrics such as linen and cotton.

6. A Boho Blouse

Boho blouses are a perfect fit for warmer climates. They go well with both skirts and pants, especially the bright color pieces. When it comes to choosing a Boho blouse, focus on the embroidery – choose a design that represents your personal style.

7. A Midi Skirt

Much like a day-to-night dress, a midi skirt is a versatile item. That makes it a key part of any capsule wardrobe for travel. A women's online clothing boutique will offer a few midi skirts to choose from. Since you want to travel in style and comfort, you'll want a piece that's flattering but also fits well. Go for soft materials and pick a skirt that doesn't hug your legs too tightly.

8. Versatile Sandals

Finally, be mindful when choosing your sandals. Most holidays involve lots of walking, so you'll want to protect your feet. Tan leather sliders fulfill this function and go with almost any outfit!

More on Planning a Travel Capsule Wardrobe

As you can see, a travel capsule wardrobe doesn't have to limit your options. Have some more space in your carry-on? Consider adding some summer shades, a longline cover-up, or a pair of denim shorts.
