Staple Summer Pieces: Versatile Pieces to Pack for any Destination

Summer is here and you know what that means? Time to pack your bags and head off on a summer holiday! Whether you’re planning a beach getaway or alternatively a city break, it’s essential to pack the right clothes for your trip. And that’s where versatile summer staples come in handy. Sarah Blake, owner of East73rd, has put together a list of versatile pieces you should pack for any destination this summer.

Denim Shorts

Denim shorts are a summer staple that never goes out of style undoubtedly  you can dress them up or down depending on the occasion. Furthermore, they go with just about anything. Pair them with a t-shirt and sandals for a casual daytime look or dress them up with a blouse and heels for a night out. Denim shorts are a fantastic addition to any summer wardrobe – and they don’t crease!

Maxi or Midi Dress

Maxi and Midi dresses are perfect for summer because they’re comfortable, lightweight, and stylish. They’re also versatile because you can wear them to the beach or dress them up for a night out. Choose a flowy dress in a fun print or bright colour to add a pop of colour to your summer wardrobe.

White T-Shirt

A white t-shirt is a summer essential because it goes with everything. You can pair it with shorts, jeans, skirts, or even over a dress. It’s also a great layering piece for cooler summer evenings. Plus, it’s easy to dress up or down with the right accessories.


A sunhat is not only a stylish accessory, but it’s also practical for protecting your face and eyes from the sun. Choose a wide-brimmed hat in a neutral colour that will go with any outfit. Plus, it will keep you cool and comfortable during those hot summer days.


No summer vacation is complete without swimwear. Whether you prefer a one-piece or a bikini, choose a style that makes you feel confident and comfortable. You can also choose swimwear that doubles as a top or pair a bikini top with shorts for a beach-to-bar look.


These are just a few versatile summer staples that I love to pack for any destination. Remember, the key to packing for a summer vacation is to choose items that are comfortable, lightweight, and easy to mix and match. With these versatile pieces in your suitcase, you’ll be ready for any adventure that comes your way. Happy summer travels! Sarah xxx
