Your 2018 Spring Break Packing Guide

 

Warmer weather means no more hiding behind "practical" wool sweaters and floor-length puffers or using the cold as an excuse to stay inside. Spring marks the perfect time for #volterrevoyages, so we've matched all the springtime trends with our travel-friendly sunglasses to get you back in the fashion game (and out of the house).  Now you can focus on eating croissants in Le Marais, lounging at your beachside Airbnb in Cascais, and strolling through the markets of Las Ramblas.

 

1. Embrace your inner tourist à la Balenciaga

That image you have in your head of the annoying tourist with a bulky camera and a Hawaiian shirt? Yeah, that's called fashion.

2. Glam up that old trench, Matrix style

April showers bring May flowers, but if the sun starts shining next month you'll still be prepared in this seasonal 'crossover' lewk. Kinda like mixing Ugg boots and short shorts, but chicer?

3. Chase some 90's waterfalls in colorful camo

Is the fashion world - dare I say - sick of plain denim pants? It seems we've gone through every iteration of jeans in the past few fashion cycles: kick-flair, vintage Levi's, racer stripes, raw-edge hems, and some have even flirted with the 2002 low-rise. Either we're suddenly getting a little more environmentally-friendly, or just in need of another 90's trend to bring back (TLC much?)

4. Dress like a bee - a Queen Bee, that is - in yellow 'Clueless' plaid 

You've been seeing it everywhere - on Selena, then Bella, then Emily Ratajkowski,  You thought yellow schoolgirl plaid was tacky  - but now it's suddenly... so... CUTE?!

5. Remix the Canadian Tux

The fashion world has exhausted all denim pants possibilities (as discussed in #3). While some have responded to the crisis by retracting completely, others - namely, those that fangirled the Calvin Klein AW18 show - have doubled down on denim. So loyal.
