Inside the Suitcase
Posted on June 07 2011
We’ve got summer on the brain! Here we sit counting the minutes before shimmying off on our next fun getaway. Whether it’s a quick trip to the country, or a sweet sojourn to the shore, we’ve found it’s always best to stick close to the elements. Naturally, we’re referring to the must-have elements that easily pack into our luggage. A big brim hat and trusty sunnies are obviously essential, but what else goes best on the road?

For Vogue, The Coveteur catches up with fashion’s favorite editors, photographers and designers to see what they’re packing in their suitcases. Seems a bikini, denim cut-offs and an ipod are essential across the board. Here at NY Dress we think a fabulous frock is a must-have for the bag. Here are a few that shouldn’t get left behind.
Sitting pretty at the top of the list is the Little White Dress, or simply the LWD. Multi-purposeful and always chic, the LWD creates the perfect ensemble day or night. Whether it’s dining al fresco or bon-firing on the beach, the key to it’s versatility is in the styling.
For evening cocktails, a mod mini dress is full of charm, especially when paired with metallic heels and a smart clutch. This wispy halter dress flows easily with the breeze at a seaside BBQ. Add tie-up espadrilles and bangles galore to keep you rolling in summertime fun.
The ultimate in warm weather attire is the maxi dress—don’t leave home without it! Getting dressed in the maxi is easy as pie. Slip it on, then off you go! Try this abstract print maxi by Mignon. With its turquoise collar, your right on par with what’s hot this summer. Flat sandals slide easily into the suitcase, and a simple cuff with earrings keep the look effortless.
Lastly, a cute sun dress, preferably with a floral print fits in no matter where your travels take you. Add a fabulous pair of sandals, and you’re ready to hit the town. Or take them off for a barefoot frolic in the sand. As for jewelry, keep it minimal with beaded strands. Summer vacay, here we come!
