Our Summer Travel Packing Guide
Travel is on the rise around the world, as many cooped-up people anxiously anticipate their long-awaited chance to visit that dream destination. While travel protocol may look a bit different these days, one thing has not changed: vacation packing. Preparing for a trip takes a special type of premonition. Not only are you anticipating unfamiliar weather changes, but event formality, suitcase space, and most of all, comfortability. Some evergreen packing tips include bringing an assortment of neutral colors, preparing for all types of climates, and considering light, moisture-wicking fabrics. To kick off your next vacation, stock your wardrobe with this packing list for any destination, featuring timeless Erica Tanov essentials and the perfect bags to fit them.
A neutral camisole offers versatility to your summer travel wardrobe. Erica Tanov’s Simone Silk Camisole provides just this. Ethically made in Los Angeles, the Simone Silk Camisole is 100% silk and features our signature Petal Silk. This lightweight fabric travels with you easily; just twist in a ball, pack it into your luggage, and gently shake it out to wear straight away. Wear it alone or layer it under a cardigan.
From a cool early morning beach walk to meeting at a wine bar in the city, a linen blouse is a fitting choice for any occasion. Light & breezy, with soft fabric for ease of wear, the Aarika Hand-Embroidered Linen Blouse is everything you want your travel wardrobe to be. The relaxed linen packs and travels well, getting even softer with use and time. If you are looking for a blouse to match your varied travel needs, you’ve found it.
Your vacation look isn’t quite complete without a signature dress that takes you from day to night and back again. Erica Tanov’s Maude Silk Slip Dress perfectly balances subtle sultriness and everyday luxury. Beautifully made in California with uncompromising quality, the Maude silk slip dress is Erica’s personal favorite everyday essential. This dress is adaptable enough to wear any time of day. For the ultimate bohemian luxury style, layer the Maude Slip dress over the Lola Slip Dress in a tonal or contrasting colorway.
An important element of your summer travel wardrobe is choosing the right travel bag. Smart packing starts with our essential Egon Weekender Bag, in supple, yet softly structured leather. Expertly sized for your long weekend getaways or as your carry-on luggage piece, this bag features two exterior pockets for the things you need most — phone, wallet, keys, books — and two interior pockets for smart, organized packing.
CLUTCH AND MAKEUP BAG
Effective vacation packing means using clothes and bags for more than one purpose. Our Elke zip clutch and Elodie makeup bag are the ideal, all-encompassing fit for your daily travel essentials. These clutches double as night-out purses and offer organized packing for both your jewelry and makeup.
Daily vacation excursions generally require bringing plenty of items, including passports, sunglasses, travel guides, snacks, water, and of course, sunscreen. Bringing a reliable tote bag helps to alleviate the anxiety of forgetting something important. Carry day-to-day essentials with ease when you bring Erica Tanov’s Eve Leather Tote. This signature piece is the perfect carry-all for your next trip and includes a tethered tonal lambskin inner pouch to keep your items (and sanity) intact. It is available in an array of colors, ensuring that your outfit is always coordinated.
