Megan already shared how she packs for a beach vacation. This year her trip to Ibiza requires a little more planning. See below for her five go-to outfits that can make a day look last well into the evening.

Stay Stylish,

When I was preparing for my trip to London, I knew that I needed 5 distinct looks: a night out in London, daytime beach club, dinner show and dancing, a day on a boat, casual afternoon exploring the town. While I did decide to create specific outfits for my events, I also felt a sense of ease knowing that if plans change on the fly any of the straightforward styles can easily be a day-to-night outfit.

Five Vacation Outfits to Have Your Ready for Anything

1. Night Out In London

I am spending my first night with my best friend and her husband in London. While our plans are just for dinner and drinks, I still wanted something that felt chic for the notoriously stylish city. Let's keep in mind that I will be coming off a 10 hour flight, so it needed to be effortless too. Jeans are always my go-to and can be easily glammed up with great heels and a colorful top. I decided to add in a studded crossbody for texture and edge.

2. Daytime Beach Club

One day on Ibiza we made reservations for lunch at a daytime beach club. Since it will be hot and sandy, I wanted comfort without sacrificing island style. Throwing a basic cover-up over your bikini is the most obvious solution, but by adding just a little extra detail the outfit has potential to go so much further. 

Pro Tip: A sunhat can be bulky to pack, unless it is collapsible. To save space, pack items inside of your hat. That way it won't get crushed and you are utilizing the space it takes up.

3. Dinner and Dancing

Dinner and dancing at Lio is our dressiest night out. I wanted to play a little and not just do a straightforward dress and heels. I started with a sequin skirt and kept it as the focus piece. From there I layered on basic items that and finished with a beaded clutch and metallic heels .

Outfit details:  H&M sequin mini , Kooples tank top ( similar ), Stella McCartney bralette ( similar ), Anthropoligie beaded clutch ( similar ), Aldo metallic heels ( similar ).

4.  A Day On A Boat

Anyone that knows me knows that I love boats! That's why I am most looking forward to the day that we chartered a private boat to take us around Formentera. The long sleeve white button down will offer perfect coverage from the later afternoon sun and since I am a fanatic about sun protection, I always need my SPF 45 face powder.

5. Afternoon Wandering Around Town

Come on I am a stylist, did you really think I wouldn't set aside time to do some local shopping? Not knowing when we would be able to fit this in, I needed an outfit that could easily take me from the beach to boutiques, or vice versa. The Chanel scarf makes the perfect belt to match my cut-off jeans, but can also be worn tied around my waist as a beach cover-up too.
