It’s a myth that traveling light has to equal rolled-up sun dresses and whatever denim staples you can layer on when you get on the plane. A Pair & A Spare has demystified the “How To Pack!?” formula this season, working in a capsule wardrobe that includes your favorite denim jacket, chambray romper, and cut-off shorts (not to mention other must-have staples). Check out the full guide, and get packing!
We love a silk or cotton dress for our globe-trotting adventures just as much as the next girl, but a more edgy, durable, playful option? Denim dresses. We love the idea of pairing a chambray dress with our metallic jewelry, or a floral printed denim dress with some cute beach sandals. When you’re planning your next escape, plan for one of these super cute frocks to come along in your suitcase.

If you’re not already aching to jet off on a summer getaway, Siwy Denim’s newest lookbook will definitely ignite that desire. The spring 2014 shoot has an aviation theme, with models sporting Siwy styles inside, outside, and all over airplanes. The aviation theme is perfect, because the collection lends itself so well to packing for travel. Great denim basics, like acid wash ankle length skinnies, pair with statement pieces, like a sheer ombre top that would be killer for an international night out.
See the full lookbook below:
