Summer travel outfits can be hard to pick, but still remain a necessary part of your travel wardrobe. Summer temperatures can vary depending on where you live in the United States, so that is why we have created 16 comfy travel outfits you’ll want to live in this summer! For all of your summer adventures, road trips, and plane rides, we have an outfit for you!
The easiest way to remain comfy and cool in the summer is by throwing on a sundress. I have a blue sundress I got from Free People a few summers ago, and it is a blue floral print, I absolutely love it. Loose, comfortable, and I actually wore this on the plane in April when my boyfriend and I flew to West Palm Beach, Florida. There are so many different styles to choose from, so don’t limit yourself to just sweats and a T-shirt! Vacation mode, in style.
Similar to a sundress, a romper is a great way to slip on something comfortable, and still, look fashionable. Online boutiques have you covered for this, shop stores like Lulus to get the full variety.
3. High Waisted Shorts With Tie Belt
For this comfortable outfit, you will also look super cute. You have probably seen these loose shorts with a tie belt before, and they make a great travel outfit! Pair with a loose tank, crop top, or t-shirt, and you’ll for sure want to live in it. These shorts aren’t going anywhere, so no rush on hitting up your favorite mall for them!
4. T-Shirt Dress
If there’s anything better than traveling wearing a t-shirt, it is traveling in a t-shirt dress. You may have seen this trend around, and it is definitly a smart choice for long car rides or travel trips. Throw on some sandals and hit the road!
Who said spandex shorts were just for exercising? In the summer, you need some comfortable travel outfits, and these multi-purpose shorts are good for just about anything. You’ll feel so 90’s retro, especially when you throw on a pair of sneakers and a loose t-shirt.
6. Floral Loose Pant
You may have heard these be referred to as ‘genie pants’ or ‘parachute pants’, but either way they are a must-have for traveling. I bought some by the brand Free People, which are a bit pricey, or you can shop online websites like Venus. Either way, you cannot go wrong with this look! One thing is true about these pants… you will not want to change out of them!
7. Levi Shorts
When it comes to travel outfits, it can be hard to find things that are both comfortable and fashionable. Well, look no further! Levi brand shorts are naturally made a bit looser than a typical pair of jean shorts. They are super comfortable, and you can either get them from the Levi section in Macy’s or online.
8. Nike Athletic Shorts
Everyone thinks that athletic shorts are just for working out, but you’d be surprised how easily you can make an outfit out of them. I saw some super cute floral pattern shorts at Macy’s just the other day, by the brand Nike. Throw on a tank with ’em and you are ready!
9. Loose Midi Skirt
This outfit for sure screams summer, and travel! Be comfy this summer when you board that plane, in a loose, trendy floral skirt. Pair with a tank, and you’ll be good to go.
10. Overall Dress
The ’90s are back, and so is the overall trend. No need to layer, because the summer (and your plans) are hot enough. Shop this trend at stores like Pacsun, or online boutiques. Stay comfy and trendy when you travel this summer!
11. Maxi Dress
Summer travel outfits are important to stay comfortable, and one thing that maintains comfort is LOOSE clothing. This summer, get ready for a day of travel with a floral (or your color choice) maxi dress. You don’t have to do much else, because this outfit speaks for itself!
As we mentioned before about spandex shorts, the same goes for leggings that are spandex material. Keep it simple with cropped leggings, or go for the full length. You surely won’t want to change out of these once you arrive at your destination!
When we think of skorts, we may think that the trend has passed. WRONG! I have seen skorts all over even in 2020, and a great store to look for them is Pacsun. With a skort, you get the best of both worlds, the fun of a skirt, but the comfort of shorts!
I absolutely love this trend for summer and traveling. Beat the heat with a pair of shorts, and throw on a kimono for an added boho trend!
15. Boyfriend Jeans
Not everyone lives somewhere where the summer months are mild, so I understand if this isn’t for everyone. However, in the north during the month of June, we’re lucky if we get 70 degrees. Boyfriend jeans are super comfy, and definetly in style.
16. Lounge Shorts
Last but not least, travel in comfort this summer with a pair of lounge shorts. When it comes to summer travel outfits, everyone has a different taste. This trend is fairly recent but looks cute with any tank. Shop TJ Maxx and other similar department stores for a pair you’ll love!
