When planning a vacation, the outfits you choose are essential as they set the tone for the type of trip you are about to go on. Whether this is a family trip, one with your significant other, or a spontaneous adventure on your own, you should be dressed for the occasion. Whatever vacation you have planned this year I hope it’s hotter than holy hell, so it gives you the chance to showcase your summer bod and new clothes. So here it is, the best outfits for you to pack for your next tropical vacation.
Printed Swimsuit and Killer Shades
I never get tired of incorporating good old Don Draper in these lists because he has a killer and flawless style. So for the first list on our outfits for vacation are a pair of printed swim trunks and killer shades. Listen, a girl likes a man with confidence, and while these shorts may seem a little on the short side, that’s because it’s intentional. They are the perfect fit. Honestly, all of your trunks should fit like this especially if you have a nice set of legs. Throw on a pair of expensive ass glasses for a day of sitting at the beach and waiting for the sun to set.
There’s no better time to wear a bold floral printed dress shirt than on vacation. If you got a killer six-pack like Pharell here, wear it wide open while walking down that boardwalk. Add a comfortable pair of loafers, and in your favorite accessories to make you the envy of all Hawaiian shirts that wish they had your sense of style.
White Trousers and Striped Shirt
White trousers and a striped shirt is the perfect outfit for vacationing on a yacht. If you won’t be on a yacht, that okay because this outfit is still perfect for a tropical vacation. When it’s nice and sunny, white trousers while help you feel loose and free. Add a form-fitted striped polo to channel your inner sailor and your fit will be the talk of the yacht club. However be careful not to spill anything or crash the boat like Rodney Dangerfield in Caddyshack!
This is one of the outfits for a vacation that will channel your inner Narco’s vibes. You’ll be king of the cabana with these next-level floral printed trousers. If you’re on vacation and you want your style to exude wealth then no fit will do it better than this one. Stick with the cream-colored dress shirt and brown loafers that will seamlessly blend with the surrounding palm trees and sand.
Short-Sleeve Dress Shirt
Break out the big guns by rocking a super clean short sleeve dress shirt. It doesn’t have to be floral printed (although it really should be) but it should definitely look brand new. You’ve been working hard on those gains all winter, now’s the time to show them off. If you want to mimic the whole fit, cop some trousers, and a dope beaded necklace that contrasts the color of the shirt. Since you’re on vacation, skip the jeans, and rock shorts or trousers with a pair of fly loafers to really set the vacation mood.
A Rocking Tank-Top
Next on our list of outfits for vacation is a killer tank-top. Just because you’re on vacation doesn’t mean that you have to take a day off. Look at how awesome the Rock looks in this tank here. Purely flawless. Whether you’re throwing weight around in the room or walking the beach with your lady, a nice tank will show off your physique to any and all prying eyes. Once again, you’ve been working hard on that summer bod, so you might as well show it off. Don’t be shy my man, if you got it, then you better flaunt it.
Open Shirt and Cardigan
This outfit is an ideal one for date night on vacation or getting a date as you’ll look like a dreamy playboy in this one. Let the floral print shirt remain unbuttoned at the top and pair it with a slim, lightweight cardigan for those chilly beach nights. Add personal touches with the accessories and some crisp loafers to really hammer home the fact that you’re looking to stun tonight!
Keep it casual for breakfast and rock this fit. A white sweater with gorgeous blue stripes will be great for those chilly summer mornings on the beach. I’m not a big fan of jeans in hot places, but in this case, it’s nice to make an exception. The versatility of this outfit comes in handy if you just want to keep it casual or kick it at the hotel bar that night.
I know a leather jacket isn’t an ideal look for the hot weather on vacation, but let me explain. If you’ve ever been to the beach at night, you would know that it gets a lot cooler. Having a leather jacket over a nice white t-shirt will set the mood just right. It’ll boost your confidence and have you looking fantastic for an evening out. Jeff Goldblum is the king of older guy fashion that has a youthful vibe. Copy this look and you’ll experience exactly what a vacation should be.
When you’re out on vacation, you’re going to be relaxed as possible. However, it’s always nice to have a vintage graphic tee underneath to up your style game. You can opt for a lightweight jacket or denim shirt to pair with it as well. The more worn, the better because it’ll be nice and comfortable in the blazing summer sun.
The Summer Wedding Suit
A wedding is a perfect excuse for a long and lengthy vacation. If you are a groomsman in your buddy’s wedding I would recommend wearing a lighter colored suit. For an expensive look make sure it’s finely tailored. In case you want inspiration, look at George Clooney here. His light grey suit works wonders in the bright sunlight and the baby blue shirt and yellow tie combo really hammers home that this is a summer suit.
