Summer is finally here, and when you live in sunny Arizona, there’s no reason to leave town for a long weekend. Just pack a bag of the season’s hottest styles and go on a staycation to one of our beautiful resorts. I’m providing you with your fashion packing list.
1 • One-piece wonder
No staycation would be complete without lounging by the pool. That means you can’t forget a sizzling suit. This year’s swimsuit of choice is the one-piece – but I’m not talking about your mother’s bathing suit. Gone are the days when wearing a one-piece meant you were a serious swimmer or afraid to show off a little skin. Try a sexy style with cutouts, mesh, an open back or side details to spice up your swim style.
2 • Multicolor Closet
This summer, choose pieces that are bursting with color! Go head to toe with vibrant hues or balance bold color with crisp white. Vacation style is all about rocking rainbow looks. Pack your bag with bright pinks, yellows and oranges that are brighter than the sun.
3 • Easy Dress
A casual, no fuss dress is always the perfect option for staycation-wear. It’s easy and comfortable, plus you don’t have to worry about putting an outfit together. Throw some sundresses in your suitcase, for easy, breezy looks to wear from poolside to tableside at a nice dinner. Maxi, knee length or mini dresses – it doesn’t matter! A sundress is a must have.
4 • Nautical Stripes
Channel your inner sailor in classic blue and white stripes. Yes, nautical stripes may be a pattern we’ve seen time and time again, but modern silhouettes like a crop top or flowy maxi dress bring it to the 21st century. No matter how you wear them, bring along sea inspired Stripes.
5 • Cool Cover-Up
Now that you’ve packed your suit, it’s time for a great cover-up. This season, conceal yourself in flowy options like a caftan or wide legged, gauzy pants. Or show off that suit in a sarong or crochet dress. The key is to choose a cover-up you’re comfortable in.
6 • Bag of the season: Top handle satchel
Last but not least is a woman’s secret weapon – her purse. This summer, every woman should carry a top handle satchel. Leather, straw or woven – it doesn’t matter! A top handle bag that can be worn crossbody is a must have when it comes to summer accessories.
7 • Super Slides
When packing for a long weekend, sandals are a must. Slip into a pair of slides that can mix and match with any of your looks. Slides with texture and shine are the shoes to have. They are interesting and fashion forward – able to be dressed up or down – while being easy and comfortable for all day wear.
So, when you’re getting ready to pack up for the long weekend, don’t stress! Just remember this packing list, and you’ll be good to go.
