Everyone loves a good getaway somewhere sunny. Whether you’re headed to a tropical destination for the holidays or have a trip booked to your favorite resort later this year, these 6 resort attire vacation staples should definitely make the trip. It doesn’t matter if it’s snowing where you live or if you book a trip last minute, this list you can get your hands on any time of year and will last you for years to come. The list includes accessories that merge function with all your fashionable resort attire, the perfect pool slides, a double-duty dress, and buttery soft joggers.
1 | TIMELESS DESIGNER BRAND SUNGLASSES
You can’t leave for vacation without at least one pair of stylish sunglasses. I recommend rotating between sporty metal frames and black plastic ones. Sunglasses are an accessory that merges function with all your fashionable resort attire. Here is a small, medium, and large sizes for each of the frame styles, from famous fashion sunglass brands Ray-Ban, Gucci, and Tom Ford.
2 | RESORT DRESS
I shared 4 ways to style a slip dress in the winter, but when you head somewhere sunny a slip dress is a great piece to pack. If you have an event to attend or dressy dinner reservations you can add some bold accessorized and dress her up. Because there are so many ways to style a slip dress, I share 3 slip dresses from Amazon for under $25 in this post, you can wear her multiple days in a row.

3| QUALITY PACKABLE HAT
I always travel with a hat, mostly because I don’t like to fuss with my hair on vacation. However, a sunhat is a non-negotiable resort attire accessory. A good quality hat that is packable is good to get and have in your closet so you can use it year after year. Not all packable hats are created equal and you get what you pay for. During my 20 years at Nordstrom, Helen Kaminski and celebrity favorite Janessa Leone have consistently had the best reviews.
4 | REVERSIBLE TOTE
This durable designer tote under $1000 gets 5-star reviews. It’s made of durable polyurethane so you can feel confident taking it poolside. It comes in 4 reversible colors which makes it easy to change up your look. The 14 ¼”W x 11 ½”H x 7″ size is the most popular, but they make a larger 17″W x 13″H x 7″D size too.
The Matching Set
- A tote to take traveling, shopping, and poolside
- Free matching pouch to use for cosmetics, a dry bag for your phone, or a clutch in the evening.
- A belt bag that fits into your tote but can be strapped on for easy access to your essentials at the airport or keep your hands free when you’re not wearing pockets and you’re out for a walk around the resort with your morning coffee.
5 | VUORI JOGGERS
Buttery soft and lightweight you’ll want more than one pair and probably the matching hoodie. Great to travel in, take a walk in, or wear to breakfast.
