We’ve Got Your Carry-On Style Essentials…

Just in time for your Summer getaway

It’s that time of the year! Summer is here and with it comes traveling and getaways, now more so than ever. The trend of bucking luxurious possessions in favor of traveling to local hidden gems and exotic locations is in full gear and not stopping anytime soon. But everyone wants to look and feel good on their excursions and we’re here to help solve the age-old problem of packing light, and stylishly, for your weekend getaways and globetrotting tours.

So Many ideas, So Little Space

The carry-on bag is a blessing and a curse just waiting to swivel alongside you as you bounce from city to city with ease. While it’s great to sail through airline security with your compact bag, the limited size of acceptable carry-on bags make adding more stamps to your passport more work than it should be, particularly if you’re making more than one stop before coming back home.

A lot of bloggers will tell you about Summer essentials, but that idea becomes a reality when faced with a slew of outfit ideas, sun soaked locations, and one small luggage. The key word for light-packing with style is versatility. Here are our suggestions for pieces that make big impact style moments without a lot of bells and whistles, and amenities that will have you living your best dressed, and feeling, summer on the go.

Our Pieces, Your Imagination

Take Acler’s Richie Dress in rich garnet. Vibrant enough to stand out on its own and light enough to layer under a blazer or jean jacket, this dress is a style problem solver that you won’t want to wait to pull out of your luggage.

It’s supple and soft, takes up minimal space in your bag, and can be slipped on in no time flat.

Your Favorite New White Tee

Your basic white tee just got a major update, and it’s still as versatile as your old favorite. Philanthropy’s perfectly weathered Parker Asymmetrical tee is made for both walking the streets of Paris with your romantic jersey hem sailing behind you and feeling comfortable while you wait in line to get into The Louvre.

Made for light packing and impromptu occasions, the Parker tee can be dressed down for multiple outfit inspiration posts and dressed up for rum cocktails on your weekend getaway. We’ve paired it here with Hudson’s updated patchwork Custom Nico jeans for some inspiration, though the options are endless for this super cool tee.

Pack less and bring back more tchotchkes with style choices as multipurpose as the Parker Asymmetric tee.

COZY, SEXY, COOL

Your horizons look brighter and brighter with a trip in your future, and a marigold pima cotton knit dress that fits into any occasion that comes up and pairs wonderfully with a pair of jeans or a or a feather light knit underneath.

Already a hidden gem in the indie fashion world, AYNI has so many cures to not knowing what to wear, but it’s the bright and cozy Cabo knit dress that calls for special attention and a place in your weekend getaway wardrobe.

Seriously stylish and socially conscious, AYNI’s collections are made in Peru using some of nature’s finest yarns and ancient handwoven techniques, like the Cabo dresses peak-a-boo stitch technique. Add in the double slits that show just the right amount of skin and you have the versatile cherry on top of you well planned sartorial sundae.
