The long weekend is almost here. If you've planned your trip but have yet to pack, don't fret. We've assembled our top ten summer essentials (full of versatile and chic pieces) to ensure a stylish getaway. Scroll down and click away. 

1. ONE PIECE SWIMSUIT
Let your bikini take a back seat this vacation. It's the one-piece bathing suit that will easily take you from poolside chic to cocktail hour. Simply layer it under a skirt.

2. MIDI SKIRT
As much as we love the mini skirt, it's the midi that will get you a lot more mileage. Modest yet playful, the best one to own this season is in gingham.  

3. SHIRTDRESS
The shirtdress replaces the caftan. And when the sun goes down, simply throw on a belt and you're ready to hit up the finest dining places. Effortless.

 

4. JUMPSUIT
Always be prepared. This one-piece wonder will save you from any high-brow dress codes that might unexpectedly pop up during your trip.

 

5. LACE-UP SANDAL
Your getaway hero piece: A wrap-around sandal that has dress-up and dress-down sensibilities.

 

6. SNEAKERS
The go-anywhere sneakers are a must for all-day adventures. The best kind? Hassel-free slip-ons.

 

7. STRAW HAT
Make a topper your stylish double defence against the sun.

 

8. SUNGLASSES
Mirrored aviators add instant cool to any outfit.

 

9. CLUTCH
Artisanal accessories add standout allure to the simplest outfits. Make the clutch your statement piece.

 

10. CONVERTIBLE BACKPACK
A double-duty rucksack that can be carried on your back or arm is the ultimate 24/7 switch-up.
