Summer Travel Outfits

When you are searching for cute travel outfits for summer, the first thing you need to do is to figure out where you are going. One of my biggest travel tips when it comes to packing is to plan out outfits for each day and the activities you will be doing on your travels. 

For instance, if you are traveling to a warm weather, beachy destination, you are going to want to pack light clothing - hello, sundresses!! If that location is cooler at night, you may want to include a light denim jacket in your list of summer travel clothes.

If you are planning to have an active vacation that will include activities like hiking, biking, or participating in other outdoor activities, a sundress won't really do now, will it?

In this case, your outfits for traveling should include things like denim shorts, or khaki shorts, tank tops, and light cotton blend shirt. You might want to throw your sneakers in the bag too!

One of my best travel outfits for summer is a pair of chinos and a tank top, with a lightweight cardigan for those chilly indoor restaurants.

And as everyone knows...I do not leave the house without my TOMS and REEF sandals! Both TOMS and Reef sandals are cute and stylish, and they are just so versatile! No matter what cute traveling outfits I plan on wearing, these shoes can be worn with practically ANY outfit for summer.

Best Travel Outfits for Planes

Now let's talk about what we are going to wear on the plane! One of the first things you should put on your packing list is the outfit that you will wear while traveling to your destination.

When you are deciding on which airplane outfits summer requires, keep in mind that planes can go from super hot and stuffy to absolutely freezing!

I love wearing a lightweight midi dress for short flights with a lightweight sweater - just in case it is cold on the plane! If I am taking a long flight, I usually wear leggings, a nice, flowy tunic and my TOMS.

You can also just wear biker shorts under a tunic. Just make sure that you have a sweater with you, as sometimes they crank up the AC!

I love this Merokeety cardigan from Amazon. I've taken it all over the world and also wore it when I was working in a day job last year.

It is so versatile and comes in so many different colors! I took it with me on my trip to Barcelona in April, and it was the perfect thickness for those cooler shady spots.

It is also great for hiding your belly after stuffing yourself with one of the best hamburgers you've ever had...

These stylish travel clothes for summer also make great day trip outfits if you are just doing a quick trip somewhere! Now, let's talk about the summer travel fashion you should pack for once you actually arrive at your destination!

I love this summer tunic with pockets for wearing with leggings. It is so cute, and hello - IT HAS POCKETS!! This is a fun look for wearing on the beach as a cover up too, or you can even dress it up with heels and a big statement necklace to wear at night.

It is available in size small to XXXL, and is a simple pull over dress style. 

Be Prepared for any weather conditions

While we are talking about our summer travels and versatility, let's talk about the weather, shall we? While we might all pack our sunhat out of habit during the summer, sometimes we forget about those pesky summer showers!

I can't tell you how many times I have had to run in and buy an umbrella while vacationing during the summer months. Make sure to add a travel umbrella to your packing list this summer along with your summer travel outfits!

No matter where you are traveling to this summer, be sure to bring a sun hat! Wallaroo Hats has a packable, lightweight fashionable sun hat that is specifically made for sun protection.

Specializing in UPF-protective headwear, Wallaroo Hats received the Skin Cancer Foundation’s seal of recommendation for adequate sun protection, meaning each style has a UPF rating of at least 30+ and a minimum brim width of three inches.

This protects skin from 96-97.5% of the sun’s harmful rays, ideal for hot days spent outdoors. Styles like the Kristy and Aria are a few hats that would be a great option for a useful, yet fashionable hat to take with you during your travels. I love that it is packable and doesn't get ruined in my suitcase or backpack!
