It’s almost Memorial Day Weekend, the official start of summer ☀️. That means Summer Fridays and weekend getaways. We happen to have a canvas tote that is basically made to support your packing. Whether traveling via the Hampton Jitney, the train, or packing up a car, you want to keep it easy. In just one tote, we have made six outfits to take you through the weekend looking the absolute kulest.
Packing six full outfits in one tote takes work, so to help you, we have a formula. You want to pack roughly 3/4th mix-and-match basics and the other 1/4th statement pieces. Also, you must be smart about what you wear on travel day! It should be an outfit with pieces you can re-wear for the rest of the weekend.
You will want this outfit to be comfortable but re-workable. The Suki pant keeps your legs covered and paired with an easy ribbed tank under a sweatshirt (this one’s Nikki’s go-to when she travels), you’re ready for any AC your train/bus/car will blow at you. You will wear your most versatile sneakers, one of the two shoes you have in tow. And most importantly, all of these pieces will work with the other elements in your tote, too.
Two Daytime Looks
Your days can look different based on where you’re going, but let’s assume you’re going somewhere casual, has a bit of walking, and where it is necessary to always have a swimsuit, just in case. You want to wear distinctly different outfits because what’s the fun in re-wearing the same look?
For Day One, when you’ll explore and walk a bit: a knit tank, terry shorts, and sneakers. For Day Two when you’ll hang by the beach/pool: your ribbed tank, pareo (which you can tie a multitude of ways), slide sandals, and little raffia bag that is big enough to hold a small sunblock and lipstick. If you head to the boardwalk restaurant, you’ll still look chic and put together.
Two Dinner Looks
Thank goodness it’s summer again because there is nothing like having dinner outside by the beach. You’ll have two very different looks: one from those classic pieces you packed and the other utilizing the fun statement ones.
For Dinner Look One, wear your Suki pants + knit tank + slide sandals. You’re a neutrals lady. For Dinner Look Two, you keep your company on their toes and wear a colorful striped skirt (it’s so comfy no matter how much seafood you eat) + crisp 100% cotton button-up shirt + colorblock cardigan over your shoulders. Your neutral slides and little bag are pulling their weight this trip.
One Brunch or BBQ Look
If you have a social day event, you want to look put together but still casual. That’s KULE’s sweet spot! Bring your terry shorts back out, but this time pair them with your ribbed tank and your lightweight cotton button-down shirt that’s not too heavy, but will still keep you covered in case the festivities keep going after the sun goes down. Your big tote will come in handy to carry a swimsuit, sandals, and a towel if the day takes you back to the water, too 🌊.
So with just 3 tops, 3 bottoms, 1 cardigan, 1 sweatshirt, 2 bags, 2 shoes, 1 swimsuit, 1 pareo, and 2 pairs of sunglasses, you have 6 different looks. The only last question is: are you a roller or a folder? Happy travels 🙂
