The Vacation Edit | Four Effortless Looks For a Chic Summer Abroad

From balmy island escapes to stylish city sojourns: find inspiration and dress the part with the Aje Vacation Edit.

There is nothing quite like the prospect of a summer jaunt on the horizon to revive even the most weary of spirits — and wardrobes.


While the notion of dressing for said holiday certainly sparks joy, that very same excitement can quickly evolve into overwhelm as the departure day looms near, bringing with it the inevitable rush to curate one’s suitcase — without overpacking.


That being said, editing your holiday wardrobe with an emphasis on versatility, comfort and breathable fabrics will ensure you are well-dressed throughout your trip, wherever it may lead.


For a little inspiration, explore the Aje Vacation Edit to find four chic outfit ideas for a stylish summer abroad.

For a Beachside Getaway

Floaty dresses tend to assume prime real estate in one’s beach-bound suitcase, and with good reason. Adding a long and flowing design to your arsenal enables breezy day to soirée dressing, easily accessorized with a spacious raffia market bag to carry your essentials from the beach to the bar and beyond.

For a City Sojourn

If a visit to a bustling metropolis brimming with galleries, boutiques and culture is on the cards, channel Spanish fashion editor and Aje Insider Sofía Paramio Delgado and defer to the power of a denim mini dress for effortless cool with a contemporary edge. An elevated ensemble for day, a casual look for night, team it with a pair of tan sandals — flat or heeled — then add statement sunglasses and subtle jewelery to complete the look.

For an Island Escape

Tempting as it is to pack little more than a basket bag full of bikinis, a breezy cotton maxi dress rarely goes astray when the siren song of the islands calls. From the balmy, sun-soaked tropics to the quaint isles of the European seas, a good light linen piece offers relaxed versatility. Comfortably layer over swimwear aprés sun before seamlessly transitioning to after five territory with a hint of jewellery for a seaside soirée.

For a Countryside Stay

Whether you are retreating to Tuscany’s rolling hills or sampling the rosé of Provence’s best vineyards, the key to looks primed for countryside frolicing is to keep comfort in mind. Consider a sweeping linen midi dress imbued with pared back elegance through soft blouson sleeves and waist cut outs for ease of wear. Finish with a simple leather shoulder bag to keep your hands free, and a pair of classic sneakers to leisurely wander your surrounds as you take in the scenery.
