I’ll be in Montana for the last two weeks of August, and I’m trying to decide what to pack for my trip. I’ll be doing some hiking and exploring in the wilderness, so I’ll need room in my suitcase for those clothes. But what do I want to wear when my friend TW and I are just milling around town and playing tourist?
Like there was ever any doubt.
Dresses don’t take up much space in the suitcase. They can be dressed up for dinner or dressed down for daytime wear. And if you choose wisely, you can wash them at a laundromat or in the hotel wash room, so you can pack less and wear more. Here are a few that I’m thinking about adding to my closet:
T-shirt dresses are a summertime godsend. This stripe from J.Crew is great, I also like this dress by Alexander Wang, and this loose-fitting Caslon tee. I also like this maxi t-shirt dress. Plus-size? Try this printed dress from Bloomingdales. Petite? Check out this tie-dye dress.
Cotton sundresses are a classic choice for summer. I love this circle dress (and the price) for its breezy quality, it also comes in black and white floral. JCPenney also makes a sleeveless option if straps aren’t your thing.
Maxi-dresses are a great choice for vacation because they easily double as a swimsuit cover-up. This Splendid tank dress is an easy classic, and I love this striped Trina Turk maxi. Plus-size? Try LAMade. Petite? Try LOFT.
A printed dress is a fun addition to your summer wardrobe. I like this Gap dress a lot. This mosaic-print dress is fun, and I like this split-neck tunic dress from Gap as well. If you want to embrace the look of resort wear, try a printed caftan.
What do you like to wear when you go on vacation? Do you have any pieces that you come back to time and again?
