With the positive outlook, 2021 may just be the year when everyone will take a summer vacation, just for the sake of it, and make sure they look good too. So what will you wear on your first post-pandemic trip? We have some airport fashion and ideas for summer outfit ideas.

Aside from airport fashion and what to wear in the city (more on that later), gorgeous beachwear is #hashtag #essential for those tropical, waterfront summer vacation escapes that beckon.

The most important part of any travel wardrobe is footwear. Not only what you like to normally wear and what you’ll be doing while on your trip, but in most cases: think shoes you can walk in comfortably.
Sneakers are a no-brainer, and Golden Goose sneakers are known for their superior all-day wearability. Read more about how Golden Goose are made and why they’re so expensive—though our designer sale has them well under retail!
Crocs clogs and slip-ons are another all-day option, and one that is also all-weather. It’s ok if you get your Crocs wet, whereas leather shoes require more caution in the rain. Plus, you may get some wicket blisters wearing sandals around Rome…

Ideas to Achieve Your Luxury Travel Outfit Goals in 2021
2021 Fashion Trends have centered on luxury loungewear and futuristic styles, but comfort may be the theme continues into 2022, especially as we begin to think more about the sort of airport fashion that allows us to travel stylishly and comfortably.
If you had to pick three types of shoes (and only three) to take on your trip: grab your sneakers, grab your sandals, and then consider a sort of hybrid: the espadrille. Tod’s makes lovely, ultra-luxe versions in white calfskin with interlocking trim.
If you’re planning a summer vacation to a sunny spot, we suggest a wide-brim straw hat to protect yourself from the sun. Maison Michel makes some of the best, and this season offers versions with and without straps, and in a variety of shades. Bonus: these hats double as shades for that poolside afternoon nap.
For the actual logistics of traveling, consider your luggage. Is it in good condition? Does it roll smoothy? Is it sturdy and secure?
