Cute Vacation Outfits You Need in Your Suitcase (& Staycation Outfits You Need in Your Closet)


Need inspiration for cute vacation outfits this year? Emmer has you covered, girl. We can even help you out with your staycation wardrobe. After all, you don’t have to travel to look fabulous. With our help, you can dress to the nines even if you’re exploring your own hometown. Take a peek at our top vacation looks.

The Perfect Tee

To create cute vacation outfits, you need to stock up on the basics. To begin with, that means selecting stylish tee shirts that you can wear with a variety of bottoms and layered tops. A plain but chic tee shirt in a can’t-miss color, such as black, grey, or white, will go with anything whether you’re enjoying time off at home or sightseeing in a new spot. Pick out a piece that’s lightweight, as well, to combat the sweltering summer temperatures. As you select a tee, make sure that it will go with at least three different bottoms, such as jeans, shorts, and maxi skirts.

Statement-Making Shorts

A pair of statement-making shorts is all you need for a fierce vacation look. You can show off your staycation style with the right shorts, too. Your best option is to shop for shorts with an eye-popping pattern or a color that begs to be noticed. For that signature #emmergirl flair, help yourself to a pair of animal print shorts. Show off your legs and your aesthetic to your best advantage. We bet that your shorts will go with all those cute but classic tee shirts in your arsenal. Just like that, you’re all sorted for casual days at the beach or on the couch.

Off-Shoulder Blouses

Blouses that bare the shoulders are all the rage right now, so you need to take the opportunity to hop aboard this trend train and ride it to the end of the line. Off-shoulder tops are the epitome of hippie chic, but with an emphasis on the chic. Not only do you get to show off your shapely sun-kissed shoulders, but you will also be able to mix and match your top with an array of bottoms. You’ll have cute vacation outfits for days! Off-shoulder tops look fabulous with little denim shorts and mini skirts, but they really stand out when you wear them with a floor-length maxi skirt. Talk about a boho bonanza!

A Pair of Jorts

Jean shorts are always in style. They’re a summertime staple for a reason. Whether you like Bermuda shorts or short shorts, you need at least one pair in your suitcase. As an added bonus, they don’t take up much room, leaving you plenty of space to pack shirts and dressier tops that you can wear with your shorts. We go wild for distressed denim, but what you choose is entirely up to you. Fortunately, you’re spoiled for choice when you adopt the Emmer aesthetic!

A Sweet Cami

Who doesn’t love a cami? You can create a breathtaking assortment of vacation looks with a simple sleeveless top. Choose a color so that all eyes are drawn to you. A pretty pastel will take you far. You can wear your camisole all by itself with your favorite pair of skinnies, an eye-catching pair of shorts, or a flowing skirt. Better still, you can layer it beneath a lightweight cardigan, a vintage-inspired denim jacket, or a cute button-up that’s just right for sunset on the beach.

A Marvelous Maxi

On vacation, a maxi skirt can be your saving grace. It offers something to wear no matter what the activity. You can dress down your skirt with flat sandals and a tee shirt or your pretty camisole. If you’re going out to dinner or hitting up the boardwalk, then pull on a pair of embellished sandals and add some accessories, such as chunky bracelets and colorful necklaces.
