WHAT TO WEAR: Vacation

If you’re lucky enough to spend the last bit of summer on vacation, you won’t want to put too much time and effort into your outfits. You’re there to relax, so let your style choices reflect that attitude. When packing for a vacation, make sure you bring the basics: your favorite T-shirts and tank tops, plenty of shorts and a pair or two of jeans in case the weather gets cool. If you find yourself needing to get a little dressed up for a night, adding a loose kimono over jeans and a black tank top should do the trick.

Kimonos are the perfect summer jacket because they’re light, easy and flowy. Even at a beach locale, it can sometimes get chilly at night. Having a kimono on hand is a stylish way to keep warm. A great alternative to your basic cardigans, kimonos have a bohemian, ’70s vibe. Get ready to channel Stevie Nicks!

This Fashionista wore her printed kimono jacket with a simple black tank and a pair of dark wash jeans. A statement necklace helps dress up the ensemble for a nice dinner. Black flat sandals are a must-have in every summer wardrobe because they go with everything. You can wear them with shorts during the day or dress them up for night when you don’t feel like wearing heels.

One Simple Change: Make this look work for a date night by swapping the jeans and top for a bodycon dress. The kimono keeps you covered up and is a great way to tone down a tight dress.
