So you’ve got a trip to Hawaii booked. First—can I come with? Second—what are you going to wear? Packing for some island time can feel like a bit tricky because after you’ve thrown in the bikinis, sandals, and sunscreen, it is so tempting to fill your suitcase with literally every floaty dress you own. But before your packrat tendencies carry you away, stop yourself, and think What would a fashion girl wear?
The answer is surprisingly, not much. As the following 11 outfits attest, a tightly edited capsule travel wardrobe is really all you need. Limit yourself to just two flirty dresses, a sturdy pair of shorts, and some cover-ups that will do double duty, and you are good to go. And the best part is that with a bit of strategic folding, everything will fit into your carry on with room to spare (hi, souvenir shopping). Island living, here you come.
