Your summer OOTD, based on your dream vacation destination

Ever heard that old saying "dress for the vacation you want, not the vacation you have?" OK, fine, it's not a saying...but it should be. So where do you wish you were? Chillin' in Hawaii? On a Fearless-era Taylor-inspired romp through Nashville? Dipping a lobstah roll in some buttah on Nantucket? Even if you're not actually there, there's no reason you can't dress like you are.

Brb, gone country! It's time to break out the cowboy hats, Western boots, bandanas, bedazzles, cutoffs, prairie skirts, patchwork—the whole lineup. Oh, and fully expect strangers to ask you where to find the best hot chicken.

Tropical prints, breezy brights, natural textures and surfer girl vibes take you to Hawaii (minus the long flight). These Kona-inspired looks channel all the authentic laid-back essence of the Aloha state (save that touristy stuff for the Honolulu mood board). Call it your Blue Crush era (and if you don't know what that is, go look it up).

Nantucket style is all about classic Americana, from the red, white and blue hues to the New England staples of gingham, seersucker and L.L.Bean totes. It's like if you took cottagecore, gave it a Boston accent and plopped it down on the beach. These are essentials for bike rides, golden sunsets and enjoying some well-deserved fried clams.
