Before summer is almost over, it’s time for a quick get away! Whether you are traveling by plane to an amazing local or just jumping into your car to drive to a beach or lake cabin, you ‘ll need an ensemble to get you there in style. Usually when you travel, you don’t have much time to change so you want to be both comfortable and chic at the same time. With these 5 easy pieces you can be ready for anything the day may bring. Spend a little or a lot, or mix it up with this high low summer getaway look – perfect for women over 40.
Starting with the basics, a cropped pair of white jeans will keep you cool (or warm if necessary). Find a pair that fit you well and they will cover a multitude of sins. High waist jeans are on trend, and you can get these AGOLDE Riley High Rise Slim Crop Jeans for $158 (not even too high a price) or save on these ASOS Design Egerton Rigid Cropped Flare Jeans for only $51.
When you travel, you never know what the temperature may bring (and airplanes are usually freezing), so layering gives you options. A simple tank top with a lightweight sweater will have you covered. This Perfect Tank Top from L’AGENCE is $85, but you may be fine with this Treasure & Bond U-Neck Tank for only $25. Both tanks can be worn over the waist of your your jeans (because a tank that rides up is a drag). I adore a heather grey top with white jeans and you can top them off with a flowey black sweater. Invest in this stylish Rick Owens Open-knit Alpaca-blend Cardigan for $680 that you will cherish forever, or grab this H&M Fine-knit Cardigan for only $24.99.
ON THE MOVE SNEAKERS
Trendy sneakers are here to stay and silver metallic kicks add brightness and a bit of dressiness to anything you wear. Fendi makes this beautiful pair of silver metallic slip-ons with scallop trim for $680. Or you may be just as happy with this pair of shiny textured silver Blackstone NL32 sneakers for $130.90. Style Tip: Lace up and tie your sneakers loosely so you can slip them on and off (without having to re-tie them). Eliminate lacing up a few of the top eyelets so this will work, and it gives your look a little attitude.
IT”S IN THE BAG
And of course you will need a large tote bag, maybe for your swim suit or a change of clothing for an overnight stay. This amazing Roksanda Eider color-block tote is a work of art (it has a yellow strap on the other side) but you will have to pay $1,005 for its artistry. Or you can “get away” with this clean styled (but maybe not as exciting) Qupid Minimal Tote Bag from ASOS for a mere $35.
You can be ready for anything if you keep this easy to wear outfit on hand this summer. Enjoy your getaway!
