Whether you’re packing a carry-on for a beach vacation, or a bigger suitcase for a fall or winter European adventure, it’s important to plan outfits ahead that check all those boxes. But what are the essential travel clothes for women, so you can create the perfect capsule wardrobe for your trip? Browse these cute outfits worn by travel and fashion bloggers, that you can wear to look chic on all your journeys.
Classy and Cute Airport Outfit
Look like an off-duty celebrity for the airplane in skinny black jeans, a soft black tee, the essential camel coat, aviator sunglasses, and a casually draped soft neutral scarf. Be kind to your tootsies, and wear with sneakers or flats.
Maxi Skirt and Striped Top
Create a chic outfit for stylish travel destinations, by tucking a black and white striped top into a floral print maxi skirt. Add black and white accessories, as pictured, for a striking, modern effect.
Button Down and Shorts
Your office button down can do double duty on vacation as a beach cover up, or smartly take the place of a cardigan sweater with jean shorts and tank top outfits, as pictured here.
Soft Pants and T-Shirt
Soft pants may be the best thing to happen to travel fashion since the invention of the airplane. Pack a pair in your suitcase to wear with your swimsuit, crop tops, and basic t-shirts, as seen here.
Polka Dot Maxi Dress
Dress up for evenings out on your European vacation in a long, playful polka dot dress. Wear with summery accessories, as shown here.
Unstructured Neutral Blazer
If you’re packing jeans and a tank top, add a neutral colored blazer to your bag, for an easy and chic top layer. We’re big fans of the unstructured style seen here, which looks dressier than a cardigan.
Black, White, and Chic All Over
Fit in with the locals when you travel to Europe in the fall or winter, by layering a chic black and white striped sweater over classy wide-leg black trousers.
We are huge fans of the jumpsuit for “one and done” dressing. A red jumpsuit looks great on its own, dressed up with a statement necklace, or a big summer hat, and helps you stand out from the resort crowd.
Button-Down and Jean Skirt
A white button-down shirt is a great addition to your vacation capsule wardrobe, since it can be styled in so many different ways. Here, it dresses up a distressed denim mini skirt for a day of city sight-seeing.
What’s better than a fun floral romper for the beach? You can wear it as an easy swimsuit cover up, then add a cute pair of shoes and some jewelry for dining al fresco. A fedora-style summer hat adds style, too, as seen here.

Essential Travel Outfit
Three easy pieces create one chic outfit you can wear on the plane, for daytime, and out to dinner, simply by changing your accessories. Your favorite jeans, a simple white top, and a long black cardigan or unstructured blazer — it’s as simple as that.
Black and White Beach Outfit
Cut a charming figure in a black and white outfit for wearing to the beach, and out for cocktails or dinner afterward. A black ruffled off the shoulder top matches perfectly with summery white jeans, and your favorite beach bag.
White Top and Denim Skirt
Create a cute casual outfit in snap by tucking in a white tank top with a short denim skirt. Fashion an all-American color scheme if you like, by adding a red square scarf at your neck.
Floral Maxi Dress
A floral print dress is a must-have when you travel in summer, not least because you can just pull it on and go. If you have a few seconds to spare, add a pretty wide brim hat, as seen here.
Extra Large Blouse and Black Pants
An oversized blouse is not only super fashionable for wearing with slim black pants, it also allows for air flow on hotter days. Add a pair of trendy white shoes and keep jewelry to a minimum with this look, as the blouse is already extra.
A jersey dress rolls up small for your suitcase, and can be dressed up or down, depending on where your vacation day or evening takes you. Try a wrap style in a pretty pastel hue, as shown here.
White Maxi Dress
If you’ll be going out to dinner on your trip, pack a long white dress that you can wear anywhere. Make it super fancy with a white blazer and heels, or keep it simple and chic with flat sandals and gold jewelry.
Dotty in Black and White
A flirty white polka dot skirt looks adorable for dinners out, matched with a simple black off the shoulder top or bodysuit.
Off the Shoulder Top and Ankle Jeans
Look cute and classy for any travel destination, in flirty white off the shoulder top and perfect-fitting ankle jeans. Add a trendy leopard print clutch, as pictured, and wear with strappy nude sandals for a long leg look.
Rompers are great for wearing on vacation, since you can simply pull on one piece and go. A belted pastel romper shows off your shape, and is a summer favorite, with neutral accessories.
New York City Outfit
Travelling to New York, or another fashion capital? Mkae like a local by styling a fashionable outfit with your athleisure pieces. Track pants look polished, when you add a trendy leopard print sweater, and stacked heel ankle boots that are easy to walk in.

Belted Maxi Dress
Take a summery floral maxi dress to the next level, by cinching it with a waist-defining belt. Wear with this year’s must have red boots, and a black leather jacket as the weather requires, for a trendy spring or fall travel outfit.
Sporty White Outfit
White shorts, a white t-shirt, and white sneakers make a great beach day outfit. Add a white blazer or navy cardigan, and maybe a big cuff bracelet, and you’re all set for the cocktail hour.
Waterfall Cardigan and Jeans Outfit
This may be the most foolproof airplane outfit ever. A waterfall cardigan looks great layered over a loose-fitting shirt and skinny jeans. Make it extra stylish by adding a statement necklace, a great tote, and open toe ankle boots, as pictured.
Stripes and Jeans
You’ll look casually cute in any city, from Paris to New York, dressed in classic stripes, and comfy relaxed jeans. A cardigan tied around your waist looks stylish, and is good planning, too.
Fall or Winter Travel Outfit
If you’re heading somewhere a bit chilly, stay cozy in an oversized sweater in a neutral shade, worn over skinny black jeans. Add a big, soft scarf in a contrasting color, to add even more warmth (and visual interest) to your outfit.
Longline Vest and Leggings
Dress up an easy leggings and t-shirt outfit by layering on a longline vest, which gives you coverage and helps to pull together sporty separates, dressing them up for shopping trips into town.

White Top and Black Pants
Who ever said minimalist style had to be boring? You’ll fit right in with the French girls in a simple, stylish outfit of a soft white blouse, nice black jogger pants, and neutral ankle boots. Add a moto jacket, when the weather is cool.
Stripes are so cute for summer in pretty ice cream pastels. Wear a classic striped dress with a denim jacket for day, then swap in a black blazer and add a statement necklace for going out at night.
Leather Skirt and Sweater
A leather skirt is a chic alternative to black jeans for colder locations, and can be just as versatile in your travel wardrobe. We like how this blogger has styled it, with a soft pastel sweater, nude heels, and a ladylike chain bag.
Belt a solid-colored romper to define your shape, when you’re taking a daytime tour. Be sure to wear flat shoes when your day will include lots of walking.
