The Vacay Attire You NEED—Even When You're Not on Vacation

There's nothing like wearing a new summery outfit on a warm-weather day.

It doesn't matter if you're going to a friend's house, on a picnic date or dinner with family—there's no denying the feeling of wearing the resort wear you love without even being on vacation. Dressing like you're away makes you feel almost as good as actually being away.

Our favorite celebs have adopted the trend of vacation-styled outfits for every occasion. You don't have to hold out on wearing your favorite crochet tops, linens, tropical prints and sandals for your next trip, because here's how to wear your vacay attire all the time.

Striped Jersey Dress: $66

Everyone needs a little crochet in their lives, especially when it comes to vacation attire. This striped dress is the right amount of neutral and fun wrapped into one. You can incorporate this textured material into any outfit, whether it's a shirt or accessories, like a crocheted tote or bucket hat.

Topman Linen Shirt With Greek Floral Print in White: $65

Tropical print should be a prominent pattern that we see in this clothing category. Anything with flowers or bright colors is a good bet! These prints are perfect for either your main outfit or your accessories, such as headscarfs, hats or socks.
