Summer Travel Styles for Every Kind of Vacation Destination

Calling all jet-setters! It is our mission to help elevate your everyday, and of course that includes living your best vacation life! With that in mind, our CURATEUR-in-chief Rachel Zoe has carefully chosen the items in our curated box and in our Shoppe to amp up your summer travel style—no matter where you’re headed!

Every destination has its own vibe, and part of the fun when you’re exploring a new place is putting together looks that truly suit that particular mood. For example, you might want to go for more laid-back by the lake or more boho by the beach. The options are endless! But we can at least get you started by offering some of our suggestions for a variety of summer hotspots.

From The Hamptons (Rachel’s favorite place to spend the season) to the French Riviera, we’ve got a few special somethings that will make you feel oh-so-chic while you’re taking in the sights, soaking up the sun, or taking in the local nightlife. Our newest curation is a fantastic start, with five perfectly edited pieces that are sure to give you a flowy, glowy, and more put-together summer.

Whether or not you’re signed up for our summer box, you can peruse our members-only e-storefront The Shoppe for tons of other amazing additions to your travel style. We’re talking everything from floral sarongs to cute coolers and from statement-making jewelry to the perfect pair of sunglasses. Oh, and don’t forget the beauty and skincare must-haves.

We thought of it all when we created this summer travel style guide including a wide variety of vacation destinations. Not going to any of these locations this season? No problem! Use this guide as your inspiration, even if your only plans are heading out for drinks with friends. After all, you never need a reason to feel a little extra stylish and confident!

If your summer plans consist of lounging by the lake with a of couple cold drinks and perhaps some outdoor activities, this look is for you. A cute terry set (and cropped cardi for when it gets a little chilly) paired with a belt bag and sporty shades will keep you feeling comfy and looking cool. Oh, and don’t forget the chic cooler for all your bevvies.

If your destination has the classic, coordinated look you often see in The Hamptons, you can’t go wrong with this ensemble. A white shirtdress is a closet staple, but when you add timeless gold hoops and sunglasses and a luxe bag it’s even more elevated without looking overdone. Even the towel you pack and be on-theme!

It’s fun to get a little more flashy sometimes, and that’s what vacationing on the French Riviera is all about! You’ll be living at the beach, so a sarong is a must, but you can make it go from day to night (the nightlife there is EVERYTHING) with a metallic clutch, glamorous shades, chandelier earrings, and a bright and glossy lip.

Tulum might feel a bit more relaxed than some other vacation spots, but that doesn’t mean you won’t encounter a ton of style. A caftan makes the perfect anchor piece for your wardrobe, and you can dress it up with bold jewelry (like this snake bracelet!) and a colorful clutch. Add some hair oil for a sleek bun or ponytail and some hydrating lip balm and you’re good to go.

Tropical glam is the name of the game when you’re heading to a destination like Bora Bora. It’s easier to achieve than you think! A slinky dress, a gold cuff, and some nude sunglasses create an effortless look that goes from day into evening. Showing some more skin? Don’t forget to pack some self-tanning lotion plus smoothing body oil so you can glow from head to toe.
