WHAT TO WEAR: Vacation

June 7th, 2016 at 2:00am

Summer is officially here! Time to trade in your textbooks for Netflix, your snow boots for sandals, and your parkas for pool floaties. If you’re lucky, you might even get to pack your bags and explore faraway places. This summer I was lucky enough to spend a month in Washington. It was great to go somewhere I had never been and experience things I had never experienced.

Packing the perfect vacation outfit can be hard. You want to be comfortable, stay cool, include pieces you can mix and match and of course, look stylish! This outfit hits all of those points.

The comfortable sneakers ensure that there won’t be any blisters after adventuring in new places. His button-down shirt is short-sleeved and lightweight, so mixed with the shorts, he’s ready for tropical temperatures. You can mix and match these closet staples to create endless outfits, which allows for lighter packing. Also, this outfit is super stylish! I love the classic cool of the white button-down Polo shirt. The salmon-colored shorts add a great pop of color, which is also a great thing to sport on vacation. Plus, the accessories are killer! The Fossil watch and Ray-Ban glasses totally complete the outfit.

One Simple Change: This outfit could easily be transformed for work at a summer internship. Replace the shorts with a crisp pair of khakis, comb your hair and you’re good to go! If the workplace is more formal, put on some nice brown shoes. You can (almost) never go wrong with a white button-down shirt, wherever you’re going.
