Creating Vacation Ready Outfits with Wardrobe Staples

You already have your summer capsule wardrobe, but you want to add a few more interesting vacation-style pieces to create a well-rounded seasonal collection. We get it! Sometimes, you need to make an entrance! With Velvet Heart’s Vacay Ready collection, you can mix and match some of these cute summer vacation outfits with your versatile wardrobe staples. Check out our recommendations for vacation outfit ideas and choose the ones that fit your vibe!

1. Add a Jacket

Dalia Sage Long-Sleeve Jacket ($92)

Your capsule wardrobe probably has plenty of casual women’s tops and comfy shorts for warm weather, but what if it gets a little breezy? Make sure you have the perfect piece to pull together your cute summer vacation outfit with the Dalia Long-Sleeve Jacket. Shop this piece in sage green or plain white to guarantee that it matches your favorite minimalist tops and cropped pants!

Made of linen and rayon, the jacket is the ideal choice to complete any vacation outfit idea because it’s ultra-lightweight and subtle but totally unique. The oversized button-up front and drawstring hem detail take this jacket to the next level!

2. Statement Pants

 Chandra Grey Ombre Wide-Leg Cropped Pant ($92)

How do you make even the most basic tank pop? With a pair of statement pants! At Velvet Heart, ombre is the new black with our Chandra Grey Ombre Wide-Leg Pants. Wear them with a cropped linen top and sneakers to keep it casual, or elevate your vacation outfit idea with wedges and a button-up blouse. Because the ombre tones are still in neutral hues, you can mix and match with nearly any top in your capsule collection. White or grey blouses will match the bottoms, while more colorful options will balance out a too-neutral ensemble.

3. Bold Tops

 Aquaria Olive Camo Short-Sleeve Tie-Front Top ($58)

Sometimes, solid colors are not enough on their own to pull off an attention-worthy ensemble. Step into summer with a few new bold patterns that will set the tone for your outfit. Choose between striking camo patterns or vibrant tie-dye designs. Either way, you can pair them with any of your capsule wardrobe pants or shorts for an outfit worth talking about. Our Aquaria Olive Camo Short-Sleeve Tie-Front Top is one of our favorites because of its camo pattern that has a subtle jungle vibe and its tie-front detail that adds some feminine flair.

4. Add Pops of Color

 Ariel Vintage Lavender Paper Bag Shorts ($68)

Color play is one of our favorite ways to spice up basic vacation outfit ideas. Take the Ariel Paper Bag Shorts, for example. These lavender vintage cut bottoms add a ton of playful flirtatiousness to your outfit, all because of their light purple hue! Pair them with your favorite pair of shorts or lightweight pants for the perfect summertime outfit.
