With the summer officially upon us, it’s the perfect time to use some of those vacation days for a fabulous getaway.  While picking a destination may be the first thing on the list, it’s equally as important to decide what to pack. Planning will not only save you from sitting on the floor surrounded by piles of clothes the day before your trip, but it will also ensure that the outfits you bring are not only practical but chic. So whether you end up in Mykonos, Malibu or Marbella some vacation essentials work no matter what beach you find yourself sipping rose on. We’ve scoured some of the most stylish women on Instagram to give you the inspiration you need for your next vacation. Here are the top 3 essentials to bring that will get you through your next trip with ease.

Statement Sunglasses

A classic pair of sunglasses that can work with any outfit is a necessity while bathing in foreign sun. Whether you are going makeup free on vacation or not, having a sleek pair of sunnies will ensure that you can still get in a necessary Instagram picture or at the very least look the part. The good news is with so many cool new brands on the market you have plenty of options that won’t necessarily leave you breaking the bank. Some of our favorite brands at the moment are Le Specs, Ilsteva, and Epokhe, which offer plenty of on-trend and classic pieces for you to bring along on your next vacation.

A Sultry One-Piece Swimsuit

One-pieces have made a major comeback, and no vacation packing list would be complete without one. Fortunately, there are a ton of stylish, and unique pieces available so that you can find just the right one for your body type. In particular, we’re loving the brightly colored swimsuits that are currently on-trend. Some flattering brands we’re digging right now are Solid and Striped and Fella Swim.Whether you do a bandeau style one piece or a cutout piece with an open back or laced up sides, invest in a one-piece you’ll be sure to stand out. The great thing about a one piece that it can also double up as a shirt so all you have to do is throw on a pair of shorts or a skirt to head to the beach and you’re ready to go.

A Pale Toned Maxi Dress

A great maxi dress can go the distance when it comes to vacations, as it can go from a day look to a night look effortlessly. Maxi dresses in pale tones offer an even more feminine touch. Some of our top picks for maxi dresses dresses are from Indah Clothing and Ale by Alessandra. Simply elevate the look by adding flats with detailing or espadrilles during the day, or coordinate the flowy piece with a pair of delicate heels and light makeup for a fresh and vibrant look.
