Our Editors Are Pros at Vacation Dressing—Here's a Peek Into Their Travel Vibe

I'm not sure about you, but my Instagram feed has been consisting of a lot of vacation photos. It's hard to take one scroll without finding a picturesque shot on the beach or in a villa. My fellow editors have also started to take their vacation days, and I've been pulling inspiration from their outfit shots along the way. From matching With Jéan sets to vintage Pucci tops, my co-workers know their way around packing a fun set of looks for any destination. As I start to plan for my own vacation, I thought I'd ask my team for insight into their travel vibe. 

Below, you'll find their dream vacation destinations, shopping picks, and beauty products that must be packed in their carry-ons. If you're looking for items to bring onto your next vacation or simply just need some inspiration for figuring out your OOO looks, you've come to the right place. Be prepared to take notes.

Dream Vacation: "Mexico! Specifically, Rosewood Mayakoba in Riviera Maya. I went there for my honeymoon, and it was the best resort I've ever been to, hands down. I think about it a lot."

Dream Vacation: "My absolute dream is to stay on one of those little huts in the water in the Maldives. I love the ocean and fantasize about waking up right on top of it doing nothing but eating papaya and drinking margaritas for about seven days straight."

Dream Vacation: "While I love to travel to far-off destinations, I'm holding off until more of the world has access to vaccines. That being said, I've been dreaming of escaping New York and traveling to local beach cities. With one recent trip to Montauk under my belt, I'm vying to go back before the end of the summer. It's so charming and calm and has incredible restaurants. Basically, it's the only place I want to be for the rest of the summer. Give me all the laid-back beach vibes—please and thank you."

Dream Vacation: "The Aeolian Islands sit off the coast of Sicily and are basically a postcard for every stunning aspect of the Mediterranean: crystal-clear blue water, dramatic cliffs, and bougainvillea-covered 

terraces. I could easily see myself spending a week (or two or three) exploring the islands by boat and eating fresh seafood for every meal."

Dream Vacation: "I've dreamed of going to Isla Holbox in Mexico, specifically the Punta Caliza hotel. Step out of your hotel door directly into your own private pool? Oh, sign me up."

Assistant Market Editor
Yusra Siddiqui is an editor who resides in New Jersey but bounces between the suburbs and NYC. (She's a Jersey girl at heart.) After interning at Who What Wear in 2019, she found her way to the team after graduating from LIM College in 2022 with a fashion media degree. She's also spent time writing and working for publications such as Fashionista, Coveteur, and Nylon, but she always knew that Who What Wear was where she was meant to be. When she's on the job, she's perusing runway shows, analyzing the latest thing fellow Gen Zers are up to on the internet, and sharing what she can about the modest-fashion market. You can also catch her dabbling in entertainment, talking about the costume choices of the latest Netflix series or diving deeper into how the plotline affects the viewers in a myriad of ways. Lastly, she likes to create content for Who What Wear's TikTok. Her personal time is spent doing similar but also different things—deep diving into almost every new TV show (Bridgerton, Gilmore Girls, and Stranger Things are favorites), planning her next local getaway (whenever that may be), and reading the latest Emily Henry or Sally Rooney novel in one sitting.
