With summer weekends booking up, it’s easy to lapse into the not-always-appropriate day-party uniform of sandals, bikinis, and oil. Blame it on the rays, if you must, but before you let those usual suspects make an appearance in your suitcase again, consider refreshing your getaway wardrobe with airy yet always-chic pieces. Take a cue from Jenny Bernheim of the blog Margo & Me, who’s sharing her tips on how to put together polished looks for a retro-inspired Palm Springs retreat. Bernheim says, “Traveling demands you pack transitional beach-to-bar outfits, so selecting neutral shades with subtle pops of color via essie nail polish is my secret to looking ready for wherever the day takes me.”
Scroll down for more tips on how to pack on the polish for your summer getaway looks.

“Your nail polish wardrobe isn’t complete without essie’s Pret-a-Surfer! Whether you’re pool-hopping or beach-bound, consider this shade of blue your new neutral. I am loving it with this look for that extra pop of color that every little LWD needs.”
Tip 4: “Black and white is the best approach to looking classically cool while soaking in the rays. Regardless of if I’m on a beach in Miami or poolside in Palm Springs, I’m can’t help but channel the characters from Slim Aarons’s famous photographs from the ’60s. This vintage one-piece paired with the oversize hat is my nod to an era I wish I hadn’t missed.”
Tip 7: “This Mara Hoffman top I'm wearing to The Parker is the perfect conversation piece to break the ice at any cocktail party. It’s no secret that this summer is all about the ’70s. From haute hippie to Saturday Night Fever, we are seeing a throwback of retro-glam silhouettes that I’ve been beyond excited to try. Your ’70s uniform should start with bell-bottoms—the more volume the better.”
