Heading out of town this weekend? Here are a few ways to easily remain chic on your summer vacay.

The ultimate travel chic: Pack easy layers to ensure that your look remains fresh and comfy no matter your destination.

1/ Easy layering pieces are the key to chic. For that early part of the summer when the evening still has a little chill, packing easy layering pieces that you can mix and match is a great way to keep your wardrobe temperature-appropriate, stylish and fresh throughout your journey.

2/ Bring clothes you actually like. This may be a given, but you wouldn’t believe how many trips I’ve been on when the people I am with brought things that they didn’t really like, forcing them to spend time shopping for new pieces when they reach their destination. Sure, shopping in a new city may always be a part of your new agenda, but you won’t want to count on it when you could free up your itinerary to have great experiences—while doing more casual shopping in between adventures.

3/ Pack shoes that are both comfortable and stylish. When vacationing, choosing the proper footwear to bring on a trip is always a challenge for two reasons: Shoes take up valuable packing space, and they generally need to be comfortable enough to do more than your average amount of walking. Instead of settling on a old pair of sneakers, or choosing fashion over function, it’s worth it to snag a fresh pair of sneakers or espadrilles that pair perfectly with the clothing options that you are bringing along. Not only is it a very small monetary investment, but it will pay off many times over when you are able to frolic around with the confidence (and comfort) of knowing you have mastered the art of vacay-style.
