These are the shapes to look for when you build your own travel wardrobe. This guide is designed to give the maximum amount of style and versatility with the fewest number of items to slow you down. The key to making this wardrobe work will be your accessories! That’s another post (and possibly an additional piece of luggage). Notice that the black top is fitted while the cropped pant has a super wide swingy flair. This is super flattering and works well with both the black cardigan/jacket or the large linen shirt worn as a jacket. It also looks great on its own. Both the faux wrap top and the white tank look great with jeans and can work on their own or with the added top layer. If you have enough room to pack the hanky hemmed vee neck pink tee (I did) you’ll notice it will work as a swimsuit cover up with your flip flops, rock any of the bottoms here and can even create the illusion of a skirt when worn over the basic black dress.
The Bicycle bag pictured here has the same print as the one I purchased for this article, but it’s a completely different style. My pick has a zippered top, reinforced bottom, straps, handles and even some interior detailing. The bag pictured here is great to pack along for taking to the pool, beach, outdoor market, etc. and may come in handy if your souvenirs don’t fit in your main bag on the way home.
