No-one really wants to think about what they are wearing on vacation, do they? The best pieces to pack are the ones that you can throw on in ten seconds flat, no effort required. Taking you from city to safari, the beach and beyond, the key to clever and stylish packing is to choose multitasking pieces in neutral and basic tones. We at One Brilliant have the perfect items for your most stylish summer escape yet. Here are a few of our favorites, with the help of Sarah our favorite intern.
The ultimate vacation dress. I love having a go-to dress for the summer and this effortless jersey dress by Trouble at the Mill is the ultimate piece. Travel friendly you can take it from day to night. It is a dress that looks chic with minimal accessories. Dress $148.00 available at One Brilliant. (pictured above)
Travel Light: with a capsule wardrobe of smart mix-and-match pieces, you can always add glamour with a pair of statement drop earrings or a fabulous necklace. We just love this romantic lace trim and dreamy bohemian spirit cardigan by Flowers of Romance, $118 available at One Brilliant. (pictured above)
The Sleeveless Tunic: Nothing says summer like a basic tunic. We just love this Cubism Sleeveless tunic by petit pois. Add a pair of capris or leggings and away you go. Tunic $138.00 available at One Brilliant. (pictured above)
Buy Summer Shoes a half-size or a full-size larger than you normally would. Our feet tend to swell during the summer, that is why when shopping for shoes this time of year, buy shoes a bit larger than you would in winter.
The Effortless Style Piece: We just love this easy-to-style tunic by Sympli. A limitless formula that gives you that effortless look. Pair it with matching leggings and the versatility is endless. Sympli tunic $98.00 & Sympli leggings $88.00 both available at One Brilliant. (pictured below)
