Shh… I’m manifesting. I’ve been incorporating the semi-ridiculous mental health and wellness practice into every single aspect of my life since a rather convincing TikTok teen came up on my For You page. As they say, I am a lucky girl (and everything always works out for me, allegedly), so when the chance to attend an all-inclusive tropical vacation landed in my lap, I had no one to thank for it except the 3-6-9 method. Before you ask, yes, I am a bit delusional.
While manifesting sounds like a lot of loud noise and hoopla to skeptics, I’ve been converted after seeing how my life has changed because of it. Case in point: Buying cute summer dresses and raffia bags and listening to smooth, old-timey European summer playlists instantly elevated my mood and transformed my attitude about traveling this summer. My mother always told me you should dress for the job you want, but frankly, I don’t see this as any different. With the variety of summer trends and tropical silhouettes inundating my brain space as we head into May, June, and July, building the ideal vacation wardrobe is at the top of my priority list. Sure enough, these finds made my summer travel plans happen.
Below, browse all the must-have items you need if you’re dreaming up the perfect vacation-ready wardrobe. From elevated sunglasses to on-trend swimsuits, these seven items are necessities for all of your tropical trips abroad.
