Summer is one of the stylish 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, one always wants to feel comfortable without sacrificing style. It’s always good to dress in layers no matter the temperature outside. It’s best to be prepared for all the fluctuating temperatures you might encounter during your travel day. Here are 10 easy summer travel outfits that will make you feel and look your best.
The first look is perfect if you’re headed to any wine country. This flowy maxi dress is a light, gauze-like material, so it’s not too hot, yet will keep you warm if the plane feels like the Arctic. Maxi dresses are great for travel because they’re loose-fitting, and can be knotted at the bottom to raise the hemline if you get warm. But it doesn’t have to be a maxi dress, midi or short summer dresses are another great option. If they happen to be short sleeve or sleeveless, add a denim jacket. This can be paired with neutral booties and a felt hat to transition the look to Fall. You could also wear flat sandals for a more casual, summer look, and accessorize with a crossbody bag.

A good pair of stretchy blue jeans are another great option for travelling. This pair is super comfortable and are easy to move in. You can pair them with your go-to neutral mules – easy to slip on and off while going through security at the airport. If you’re wearing skinny jeans, you could wear a flowy top like this one. Or you could also wear a plain white tee or tank with some flip flops.
There’s nothing quite like wearing denim shorts with a basic tee in the summer season. It’s an easy outfit to throw on for travelling, especially with the frayed hemline. You can pair it with your favourite graphic tee or henley. For an added layer to throw on if you get cold, tie a sweatshirt or flannel button-up around your waist. These slip-on shoes are great for travel because they’re not only comfortable but easy to get on and off.
Is there anything more comfortable than leggings when you’re travelling? This pair has a high waist, making you feel comfortable and relaxed. It can be paired with one of your most-worn casual shirts – a henley tunic. It gives you enough coverage in the back to wear with leggings and it’s even better because it’s a long sleeve for an extra layer of warmth if needed. But it’s not too warm that you’ll feel like you’ll melt when you’re outside during your travel day. You can finish the look with some comfortable athletic shoes. Though they have shoe strings, they’re still slip-on shoes.
Another way to wear denim shorts while you’re travelling is to pair them with a pretty kimono. Not only are they stylish, but they provide an extra layer without adding a ton of bulk. Pair it with strappy sandals and a straw hat – perfect for heading to the beach. You could also pair it with white sneakers and long sleeve kimono.
