Nothing says summer vacation like a flowy pair of linen pants, so readers looked to this wide leg pair from Caslon! These are versatile and can be worn over a one-piece bathing suit for a day at the beach or dressed up with a pretty blouse and wedges for a night out.

Shop Sizes XS-XL: Unbound Merino


Unbound Merino V-Neck T-Shirt


This Unbound Merino v-neck may just be the perfect travel tee! It’s adored by readers for its high-performance construction coupled with a polished, feminine look.

While you may not think merino wool is right for the summer, it couldn’t be more ideal, as it’s highly breathable, will regulate your temperature, and wicks away sweat. It doesn’t retain odor, either! It comes in a range of neutral colors and sizes XS-XL.

Another popular pick from this brand is the Merino Tie Dress, which boasts an extremely flattering fit and a versatile look that just as easily works for a day by the pool and a night out on the town.

Vionic Alondra Sandals


If you’re looking for a comfortable walking sandal with a fashion-forward look, TFG readers have been loving the Vionic Alondra sandals. With a sleek leather upper and a chunky lug sole, these gems will add some fun to any outfit.

With their shock-absorbing cushioning and contoured support, you’ll be able to walk for miles in them, too. They also come in all black!




Shop: Target


Target Signature Commuter Backpack


I’ve tested a range of backpacks over the years, and to my surprise, this budget-friendly Commuter Backpack from Target has become my favorite personal item when traveling with my toddler. I’m obsessed with it, and so are readers this month!

It’s a great price, looks nice, and boasts functional features like side water bottle pockets and water-repellent fabric.

I also love Target’s  Day Trip Backpack! What’s the difference between the two? The Commuter Backpack is slimmer and doesn’t have as much organization, but I prefer this version. Its compact size works for me, and I love the streamlined and minimalistic design. The Day Trip backpack is perfect for trips where I need a bit more space and organization. I also like that it has an exterior laptop sleeve, which is very roomy.

Shop Sizes XS-XXL: Chico’s


Chico’s Linen Culotte Pants 


Wide leg pants are in this summer, and when they’re made in a chic and breathable fabric like linen, they’re a no-brainer for summer travel! These Chico’s linen culotte pants feature a dramatic wide leg, a flattering paper bag waist, and a cropped hem to show off your stylish white sneakers!


These are our tried and tested reader recommendations for the world’s best travel shoes!




Shop: Amazon | Taos | Zappos


Taos Star Sneakers


While particularly popular in June, the Taos Star sneakers are always a huge favorite with TFG readers! Their canvas construction is lightweight and breathable, so they’re perfect for sightseeing in the heat.

Readers rave about the cushioning and arch support, as well as their classic look, which pairs well with everything from sundresses to jeans. They come in wide sizes, too!
