Budget-Friendly Vacation Outfits

If you’re anything like me, you will use any trip as an excuse to shop for an entirely new wardrobe. The good news is you don’t have to splurge on designer labels to create a fabulous vacation wardrobe that has you looking chic and stylish. But with a few smart decisions and some creativity, you’ll be able to create some stunning outfits that make you feel like a million bucks — on a budget! So grab your favorite beverage, your credit card, and let’s dive into some budget-friendly vacation outfits you won’t be able to say no to.

Budget-Friendly Vacation Outfits

For Hanging by the Pool or at the Beach

For the days you’re hanging by the pool or at the beach, I always recommend wearing a chic cover up so if you stop into stores or grab lunch at any point of the day, you look put together. This set pairs perfectly with this two piece bathing suit. The set feels more elevated than a typical swimsuit cover-up which I love. Pair it with this tote bag (holds so much!) and these sandals and you’re ready to go!

If you want more coverage than a two piece, this black one-piece is so chic and flattering. When paired with these knit pants, it looks like an outfit you would wear on a regular day but it’s pool ready! Keep the sun out of your face with this wide brim hat and carry all of your pool and beach must-haves in this straw tote bag.

To Wear During the Day

On the days you’re exploring, doing some shopping, and potentially stopping by the pool for a bit, this matching set worn over this bathing suit is such an easy outfit! For ultimate vacation vibes, add in some natural textures through your accessories. I love this shoulder bag and these platform sandals.

If you plan to spend your day on a boat, drinking champagne, or dining at the best local restaurants, pair this elevated bustier top with a fun skirt, like this one. The silhouette feel very vacation-y and the print is eye-catching, especially against the white top. Incorporate in natural textures through your bag (love this one!) to continue with the vacation vibes.

For Dinner

Dinner on vacation is always so much fun! I love getting dressed up and enjoying new-to-me foods. This halter dress is such a cute option for a tropical vacation and it looks so pretty paired with neutral accessories. These heeled sandals are the perfect shoe to wear with it, too. They’re practical and comfortable but still elevated. To add a little texture to the outfit, try this crochet knit bag.

This is another really cute dress that is perfect for dinner. The fluttery sleeves are so flattering and help keep you cool, even on the warmest nights. For a bag, I’d wear something neutral with the dress since it’s so bold. This white ruched top handle bag is such a good option!
