Travel in Style This Labor Day Weekend

By Emma Reynolds

Summer is winding down, but now’s the perfect time to plan ahead for your next warm-weather vacation. Stock up on these essentials (points if you squeeze in some last-minute Labor Day shopping), so you’ll relax in style whether you’re headed to the beach or sitting poolside with a margarita in hand. 

In the airport:

Freya Rattan Travel Hat Box with Handpainted Black and White, $400

Rattan is having a moment thanks to its vacation-like aesthetic, and this hat box from Freya carries your essentials. It’s handmade by local artisans from branches of the Southeast Asia Ata Tree and has a chic leather strap for hands-free exploring. Hand-painted black and white details add a playful element to the trendy carry-on.

MZ Wallace 13” Computer Case, $85

You’ll be hard-pressed to find a case that protects your computer better than this. Not only is it easy to pack, zip and go, but the quilted black pattern looks more stylish than tech-y. It’s trimmed in black Italian leather and is rollable, foldable and durable, but will never lose its shape when you’re not using it.

On the beach:

Kore Swim Calypso Maillot, $249

Kore Swim knows that a well-crafted geometric silhouette will flatter any woman’s body. Wear with a flowy beach cover up, or go from day to night in the ultimate vacation look with a long skirt and a pair of strappy sandals.




Thierry Lasry Cat Eye Sunglasses, $425

Add some color to your ensemble with classic cat eye sunglasses that serve the dual purpose of shading your eyes from the sun and eliminating the need for makeup while relaxing on the beach. The frame and lenses have gradual tones of pink and brown, a perfect complement to a bronzed glow.


By night:

Preen by Thornton Bregazzi Floral Dress, $1,595

A floral high-low dress is breezy and effortless — and this red flowery number from Preen by Thornton Bregazzi has us booking an early flight. Sculptural cutouts, a v-neck and elastic waist add structure to an otherwise flowy silhouette. Pair with a metallic geometric sandal, like the Alaïa’s below, to offset the femininity of the look.



Alaïa Studded Laser-Cut Specchio Leather Sandals, $1,035

A pop of metallic in a fun geometric pattern will assure that no matter how simple your vacation outfits are, an interesting touch goes a long way. Go from a beachside lunch to shopping around in this comfortable and ultra-chic sandal. These are crafted from Italian leather with studded details on the lattice pattern.
