We could live in Danielle Ribner’s adorable, flouncy skirts and cool, striped tanks. The best part is that all of the items in her chic and feminine sportswear line, Loup (inspired by travel), are wrinkle-free and sweat-resistant. Perfect to pack for trips where an iron and laundromat are not part of the agenda. Here, Ribner give us tips on what to pack for our summer trips:
1. A short, easy, day-to-night dress — I find it simplifies everything when packing. Opt for a dress you can put on for the beach or a daytime stroll, then can throw a jacket over and wear out to dinner.
2. Lightweight, solid tees — Whether you’re going some place rugged or relaxing, basics can always be dressed up with accessories. They take up little room in your bag and offer more coverage when you need a little escape from the sun.
3. High-waisted skirts — I love buying local T-shirts when traveling, and I always end up wearing them tucked into my high-waisted skirts to make them less “tourist” and more like a fashion statement.
4. Tote bag — I couldn’t live without a tote bag on summer vacations. I carry them as a purse and they work for everything from a hike to a night out.
