Clothing with cut-outs is trending, but sometimes you want a slightly more reserved look. You can still lean into the trend with this Terez Racerback Dress and its abbreviated peek-a-boo style. Located near the lower back, the cut-out is modest yet chic.
CUE THE HEELS (OR SANDALS!)
This is a rare unicorn, my friends – an elegant romper with decent leg coverage. All rompers are cute, but are sometimes too darn short, in my not-so-humble opinion. Pair this ViX PaulaHermanny luxe look with gladiator sandals or cute heels. Info: vixpaulahermanny.com
It’s cute enough to wear socially, but this Royal Robbins top is made from a silky material that is surprisingly geared for the outdoors. So, it resists wrinkles, repels stains, has a 4-way stretch, and even a hidden zippered pocket. Info: royalrobbins.com
A CARRY-ON MULE?
Sure, the airlines limit which pets we can bring, but there’s always room for this cute mule in your carry-on. Rockport’s Briah Gladiator Sandal has the support you’ll need for all-day vacation shenanigans without sacrificing style. Info: rockport.com
WHEN IN DOUBT,
If you’re traveling for Easter, this comfortable Cleo linen dress from Grae Cove is the perfect shade of pale blue. In fact, the site is brimming over with subtly hued styles that are timeless and beautiful. Info: graecove.com
Whether it’s a long walk to the spa or you’re all-in on the shopping scene, these sandals will go the distance. Kuru Footwear’s deep footbed and ergonomic design offers the best sneaker comfort in cute sandals.
This dress packs down into a wee-bitty square, but its best feature is the built-in bra. Let’s say you forgot to re-apply that sunscreen; Krisom Klover’s Stella dress is your new best friend.
ONE WORD: FINALLY
Well, it sure took long enough, but someone has finally designed a functional airplane pillow. Cabeau’s unique design wraps eliminate the “bobblehead” effect for a comfortable sleep – even in the middle seat. Info: cabeau.com
SAY YES TO WOOL T-SHIRTS
It is wool, and that feels counterintuitive – I totally understand. But merino wool is thin, breathable, and can go from heat to cold with equal success. Plus, the natural fibers of these Unbound Merino T-shirts resist odor, making it a travel triumph. Info: unboundmerino.com
CRUISIN’ WITH COSTNER
Take a road trip with Kevin Costner, John Lithgow, or Phil Jackson? Well, there’s an app that gets you pretty darn close. Autio cues up cool, narrated stories about nearby places. You’ll be tempted to take the next exit to go visit the places they feature. Info: autio.com
