Summer is here and it’s time to embark on your long awaited summer destination. Whether you’re heading somewhere tropical or exploring a vibrant city, packing the right items and dressing accordingly can make your trip even more enjoyable.

We share some styling tips on what you can wear and where to shop at The Renaissance Mall.

Shorts for easy movement

Shorts are always a must in your packing list. Shorts especially whites, black or denim are pieces you can re-wear on your vacation. Make it dressy, or make it casual, it’s all about what you style it with.

For day time, pair your shorts with a flowy top, sun hat, straw bag, sandals or sneakers and transition to night time by adding heels and a dressier top.

Shop shorts at Michael Kors, Ralph Lauren, American Eagle, Tommy Bahama or Lilly Pulitzer at the Pier Market.

Summer Dresses

Nothing says summer like a chic and fun mini, midi or maxi dress. We recommend you opt for lightweight and breathable fabrics such as cotton or linen. The more colorful, the better! Think flowy pieces in vibrant prints and styles.

Dresses are perfect pieces to wear for a sunset dinner, drinks or for a night of dancing.

Shop summer dresses at Eva Boutique, Dolce & Gabbana, Michael Kors, American Eagle, Lilly Pulitzer, Tommy Bahama or Affaire de Femmes for example.

Key accessories

Accessories can be tricky as you can easily overpack. Some must-haves in your packing list can include: sunglasses, some jewelry pieces: both everyday and statement pieces if you want to have options, shoes (consider sandals, high heels and sneakers) and bags. Hats are an extra if you have space in your suitcase.

For bags keep in mind you’ll want to have an easy piece for everyday wear (whether it’s a tote or backpack), a fashion bag and a classic bag.

Shop accessories at Kate Spade, Prada, Gucci, Carolina Herrera,  Louis Vuitton, Pretty Ballerina or Castañer. Find sunglasses at Hotlook.

Shop jewelry at Colombian Emeralds, Cartier, Gandelman, Tous or Jolie Jewelry Boutique.

As you embark on your summer destination, remember that style and comfort go hand in hand when traveling. With our styling tips you’ll be ready to enjoy your summer destination to the fullest, all while looking chic and confident. Don’t forget to tag us in your shopping posts.
