Summer is finally here! I don’t know about you guys but I am super excited to take out the sun hats and lounge in bikinis all day! I recently took a trip to the Dominican Republic and thought it would be a good idea to share some tips with you.
The Airport Outfit
When choosing an airport outfit you want to make sure you remember some key things about flying.
Tip 1: Choose comfy cloths. The last thing you want is to be sitting in a flight with some tight jeans on. I chose to wear a super comfy white crop top from Charlotte Russe with black high waisted leggings from Forever 21, you can never go wrong with comfy but super stylish leggings.
Tip 2: Throw on a jacket, no matter where you’re going. We all know it can get pretty chilly on those flights. I went with a chic royal blue leather jacket from Nordstrom Rack.
Tip 3: Wear shoes that require socks. Don’t forget some airports still require you to take your shoes off and I can’t even fathom the thought of stepping on that floor completely barefoot! I chose my Original Superstar Adidas.
Tourist Adventure Attire
I had the pleasure of staying in one of the prettiest neighborhoods in Dominican Republic, called Casa de Campo and wasted no time to go sight seeing the first chance I got.
Tip 1: If you know you’ll be walking a lot, wear stylish but comfy shoes so your feet don’t hurt after a while. I went with some gold gladiators from Forever 21.
Tip 2: You want to pick out an outfit that’s comfortable enough for the activity you will be doing. Knowing I would be walking outside in the heat of the beautiful Dominican Republic, I went with a comfy romper also from Forever 21.
Tip 3: Protect your face. You want to make sure you pack plenty of sunglasses and beach hats to protect yourself from the sun! Like the one I wore from a local Miami boutique called Electric Boutique and my Quay Australia sunnies.
Pool & Beach Outfit
The pool and beach go together like peanut butter and jelly. They’re practically the same place just add some sand in one and you have a beach. When deciding what to wear for these locations you can go with two looks, the effortless maxi skirt for easy take off/put on or the tropical jumper to add edge incase you find yourself at the bar having an unexpected lunch date with a cutie! Below are a few tips you can turn to.
Tip 1: Grab pieces that are easy take off/put on. No one wants to wear a complicated outfit to the pool/beach. I went with an easy maxi skirt paired with a cute crop to add detail to the outfit and/or a strapless jumper all from a local boutique in Miami called Electric Boutique.
Tip 2: Wear stylish slip-on sandals. I went with some brown wrap up and/or gold two strap sandals both from Steve Madden. Always pack flip flops just in case it gets late and you don’t feel like wasting time tying buckles or strings.
Tip 3: Put on that beach hat and sunglasses. I’m obsessed with sunglasses and beach hats, so for me they are essentials. I chose the same beach hat from the local Miami boutique Electric and two different shades, rose gold from Quay Australia and blue aviators from Ray-Ban.
I hope this helps you style blazing travelers for the summer, comment down below on your thoughts.
