One of my favorite things in the world besides trying on spring clothing or shopping for secondhand designer handbags is traveling. Exploring the world in my mind is akin to the exploration of self through style—you learn so much not only about how you move through this world but the culture, values, and identities of others. And while travel over the past few years has been put on the back burner for many people across the globe, this summer could finally offer a glimmer of hope as more people have access to vaccinations and countries have reopened their borders to tourists. I can’t tell you how excited the prospect of popping on a plane and heading to Paris or the Amalfi coast makes me. But I’d be lying if I didn’t say that I’m equally excited to whip out some vacation outfits.
There’s just something about resort wear that speaks to my soul (if I could just wear Cult Gaia while lounging in Greece for the rest of my life, I probably would). While I love all things vacation-dressing, I’d be lying if I didn’t say I struggle to keep baggage fees in check. When deciding what to pack for a vacation, I always turn to It-girls as inspiration. One style icon that always slays vacation outfits is Dua Lipa. Yes, her red-carpet looks are cool, but what does she choose to wear while vacationing? Hot as hell. Ahead, I’ve rounded up six Dua Lipa–loved vacation outfits that prove she’s a connoisseur of travel style. Warning: These outfits are likely to cause wanderlust.
