An overview of what to pack for a long weekend away to look like a supermodel

0

More than 37 million Americans will be traveling for Memorial Day weekend.

And while we’re all ready for some post-pandemic fun in the sun, having not used our passports for over a year, we may not be on the go.

Not sure what to pack? Hear from supermodels and social media stars like Sara Sampaio, Shanina Shaik and Jasmine Tookes, who nailed the ‘hot girl’ summer aesthetic on a recent trip to Turks and Caicos Islands with REVOLVE.

Cut It Out: With barely any makeup and her hair pulled back into a ponytail, Shanina Shaik headed to the island in NBD’s Denisse Mini Dress

CUT WAYS

Remember when the diaphragm was the flesh to flash?

This summer there is not one exciting area, there are many!

Influencers in Turks and Caicos have proven that the new erogenous zones of fashion are now the shoulder, hip, sides of the waist and everything in between – the skin is in it!

With barely any makeup and her hair pulled back in a ponytail, Shanina Shaik headed to the island in NBD’s Denisse Mini Dress ($ 178).

The little black number had a side cutout, silver bezel hardware, and draped fabric overlay.

It was business up front and a party in the back for Sara Sampaio highlighting her tiny back in the Joanna Midi dress from Lovers + Friends.

A swipe of red lipstick and a few baubles is all it takes for the Portuguese model and actress to look beach chic.

Josephine Skriver took the pool trend in Lovewave’s Lotta One Piece with a cut-out belly.

NATURAL BEAUTY

When it comes to vacation, beauty is … less is more. Be a mermaid and only pack the products that highlight your favorite traits.

Shanina perfected vacay vibes with her au naturale on the beach hair styled in loose waves and her make-up soft and subtle.

The 30-year-old wore the Lovers + Friends Tara Tank ($ 58) and Rita ribbed bikini bottoms from Superdown ($ 36) topped by a leopard sarong.

She brought out her pretty green eyes with soft brown eyeshadow and a nude lip color defined her pout.

NEAUTRAL COLOR PALETTE

While the revival of bright and cheerful neon colors is still underway, take full advantage of your seasonal sun-kissed skin in brown tones while on vacation.

From swimsuits to footwear, the shade – often associated with accessibility, authenticity, warmth and safety – is popular in all fashion categories and very versatile.

MATCHING SETS

One of the biggest trends of the season, both on land and at sea, is coordinated sets. They look luxurious and take the hassle out of finding and matching single items.
