The Fashion-Insider Vacation Capsule: 5 Pieces in Every Chic Person's Suitcase

Vacation Capsule Wardrobe



We've now entered that time of year when it seems like everyone is constantly on vacation. Every time I open up Instagram, I'm flooded with a series of poolside, beachside, and boat shots of all the chicest women I know living their best vacation lives all over the world. From the beaches of Capri to the pools of Palm Springs, I've noticed that a handful of items are making cameos on summer's most stylish vacations.

From editors to stylists, buyers to influencers, everyone clearly had the same idea when packing for their trips. In the below vacation capsule wardrobe, prepare to discover the sandals, tote, swimsuit, shirt, and dress that are all earning It status in their own right. Don't be surprised to see Loewe, Prada, and Chanel, since our favorite fashion girls happen to have designer taste. But we know you love a good affordable find, too, so shop each item along with a similar-looking affordable version up ahead.

Scroll down to see the vacation capsule wardrobe that all the chicest women decided on when packing for their summer getaways.

Hunza G Swimsuits

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley might have made this Hunza G swimsuit sell out shortly after posting about it on Instagram, but she's not the only fan of the brand's signature scrunchie-textured swimsuits. We spotted model Lily Aldridge and stylist Monikh Dale in similar styles, too.





Chanel PVC Slides

Chanel's latest It shoe is a pair of PVC slides with a low block heel, and it's been making the rounds on Instagram all month long. Naturally, it's making cameos in some of this summer's chicest vacation shots.



Loewe Woven Tote

It wouldn't really be a summer vacay without a beach-ready tote bag, and this raffia-and-leather version from Loewe is clearly a favorite among the fashion set since it reads a bit sleeker and less touristy than most other woven totes on the market.



Cecilie Bahnsen Dresses

Cecilie Bahnsen's frothy-white creations look like they were meant for frolicking in a foreign country, and fashion girls are taking this interpretation and running with it.

Prada Floral Button-Down Shirt

This is the summer of the "tourist dad" shirt thanks to Prada's floral and tie-dye versions. The laid-back top is perfect worn with denim cutoffs or worn open as a swimsuit cover-up. Just don't forget your bucket hat.
