A trip to the city involves lots of walking. You may be exploring landmarks and visiting museums, so a pair of comfy shoes will be essential. Try a dressy flat with a cold-shoulder top and ruffle skirt or a sensible heel with a floral print dress. Last but not least, finish off the look with a no-fuss hands-free crossbody bag. These key pieces are versatile for day, night, and all the stops in between.

Beach

The hot sands and beautiful ocean backdrop call for an insta-worthy outfit. Since you’ll be spending the majority of the day in the sun, opt for a fun strapless swimsuit (to avoid visible tan-lines) then build on that with denim shorts, a ruffle top, slip-on slides, and a straw bag. Another great option? Try a romper or a tunic dress as an easy cover-up for a post-beach look. Don’t forget a statement hat and a pair of sunnies — two stylish accessories that also happen to protect you from UV rays.

Safari

Prep for an adventure in the wildlife with practical pieces that don’t sacrifice style. Stick to neutrals and earthtone colors. We recommend a cool lightweight white dress with espadrilles or a field jacket over a tee, jeans, and sneakers. For accessories, go for a bucket bag and tortoise shell sunnies. As a bonus, these looks also work for a trip to the desert.

Cruise
