10 Easy Summer Travel Outfits

Summer is one of the best times to travel. The season brings such a laid back vibe. The pools are opening, the temperature is heating up, and by June, most are ready for some fun in the sun. The warm weather helps you travel lighter too – no heavy coats or boots needed. Whether the trip will consist of a long or short travel day in planes, trains, cars or buses, I always want to feel comfortable without sacrificing style. I’ve found that it’s always good to dress in layers no matter the temperature outside. The plane might be freezing, and then outside might be blazing. So it’s best to be prepared for all the fluctuating temperatures you might encounter during your travel day. I’m rounding up 10 easy summer travel outfits that will make you feel and look your best.

10 Easy Summer Travel Outfits

Summer Midi Dresses

Dresses are ideal for travel because they’re comfortable, yet make you feel put together. You can either pair your midi dress with a fun sandal or a white sneaker. I love that dresses are versatile enough to dress up or down, and you can easily layer a cardigan or denim jacket with them, if you need one.

Matching Sets

These matching sets are a great outfit to wear for travel because they’re comfortable, and they’ll keep you cool, if you’re going someplace warm. You can tuck the front part of the shirt into the shorts to give the outfit a little more structure. Pair strappy sandals or white sneakers to complete the look. I think a cute headband would also add to the overall look.

White Jeans with a Duster

If you don’t have time to change after arriving to your destination, this look will take you from transportation to adventure. It’s a chic and comfortable. The white jeans are a great staple bottom to bring with you on trips because you can pair them with a variety of outfits. Instead of the pearl flats, you could also wear a slide sandal for a more casual look.

Athleisure Looks

When we went to the 30A area in Florida recently, these were my go-to looks for casual strolling around the town. The first look features a cropped sweatshirt paired with the popular Free People active shorts. If you’re looking for a comfortable running or walking shoe, the pair I’m wearing are super comfortable and love the blush color.

The second look features a skort paired with a long-sleeve active shirt. I use my belt bag often for traveling or for walks at home when I just need to bring my necessities. You can read my review of the lululemon belt bag in this post HERE.

Linen Pants

Like the white jeans, light-colored linen pants are another great staple bottom for the spring and summer months. They feel light and comfortable when you wear them, and you can easily dress them more casually like I did in the first picture. Or you can dress them up a little with a floral, puff sleeve top.

These joggers have been a top seller consistently for I don’t know how many months now. The color is gorgeous and love that they don’t look too casual, but you get the comfort of a jogger too. In this picture, I dressed them up a little. But you can easily pair a tank or bodysuit with sandals to dress them down too.

Nothing says spring and summer quite like a fun print on shorts. These are a linen blend, so they’re comfortable. I paired it with a darling smocked, ruffle-detail top. It’s adorable paired with denim jeans or a mini skirt too. Finish the look with statement earrings and a sun hat.

Summer Travel Tips for Packing 

Aside from summer outfits, I have a few tips to help me stay organized during our trips. One of my biggest tips is using packing cubes. Depending on how you like to stay organized, I like to put my daily outfits in one packing cube. So if we’re going somewhere for five days, I’ll have five packing cubes with my five outfits I’ll need throughout the trip. I also have one for pajamas and lounge clothes too.

That way, all you have to do is grab the cubes out of your bag and put into the drawers where you’re staying. If you have anything that needs hung up, you can certainly do that. But for the most part, I keep everything in the cubes and steam them with a travel steamer if needed. 

As the summer season winds down, there’s still time to squeeze in a summer trip. Sometimes it’s hard to narrow down your search of where to go and what to do. There’s so much to see and do in this world. If you’re in that situation, try joining some travel Facebook groups and search Pinterest. I’ve found some great inspiration just by searching on those two platforms. With Pinterest, I’ve found some really great travel blogs with detailed information on the best places to visit for couples and families too. You can also check out my travel guides on the blog, here. That leads me to asking if you’ve traveled anywhere lately? If so, let me know in the comments below!

Also, I’m curious what your go-to outfit is for travel days?
