For a minute there, vacations felt like a faint memory of a pre-COVID past. Many of us could hardly remember airports, let alone anything other than our living rooms. As lockdown guidelines begin to steadily ease, our collective wanderlust returns with a vengeance, and with traveling comes the once-dreaded task of packing. Chalk it up to a year-plus spent indoors, but we're totally ready to stuff our suitcases with cute vacation outfits — and Pinterest agrees.

According to a recent report, Pinners are preparing for a travel boom, with searches for vacations rising faster than pre-pandemic levels. Specifically, searches for "travel girl aesthetic" are up a whopping 20x. To achieve the look, we looked to our favorite stylish celebrities — Hailey Bieber, Yara Shahidi, Bella Hadid, and more — who've been serving up vacation outfit inspo in far-flung destinations for weeks.

If their outfits are any indication, updating your ensemble with trendy sunglasses and fun sandals in bold hues and shapes is key. And with the right guidelines (we got you), prepping for your next trip is bound to be your easiest endeavor yet. Keep scrolling to shop 11 must-have items for your next getaway — or staycation. After all, that vacay glow can be channeled from anywhere.


A Little Black Dress

Simple, versatile, and forever chic, the LBD isn't going anywhere anytime soon. Your destination wardrobe practically can't exist without it.


Oversized Sunglasses

When it comes to accessories, celebs like Kaia Gerber have made oversized sunnies the standard. Bonus points for vintage-inspired tinted lenses.


Matching Sets

Not only are matching sets perfect for the 'gram, they're just about the easiest ensemble to throw together. We can't stop staring!


Colorful Swim

Put your neutrals on the back burner and opt for extra-bright bathing suits that allow you to become one with the tropical scenery (or channel it from home).


A Sun Hat

For stylish sun protection, pack a large straw hat à la Yara Shahidi, or a resort-style bucket hat for easier storage.


Cozy Sweats

Whether you're taking a quick snooze en route to paradise or you're just a creature of comfort, the right sweatshirt can feel like a home away from home.


A Tie-Front Top

Nothing says "vacation" quite like a tie-front top. It strikes the perfect balance between put-together and relaxed, which is exactly the kind of energy we want to radiate.


White Sneakers

Pro tip: Pack at least one pair of shoes that goes with absolutely everything. According to Hailey Bieber, white sneakers are at the top of the list.


Chunky Jewelry

There's nothing worse than leaving a vacay with less jewelry than you came with. Skip the dainty pieces and pack your chunky, easy-to-find favorites instead.


A Colorful Handbag

Vacation is the time to show off the MVP of your handbag collection. The more colorful, the better.


Comfortable Sandals

Get all the benefits of a striking heel without the foot pain by choosing a comfy wedge platform or a rope sandal with summery details.
