We just picked up the cutest vacation clothes, and you’ll never guess where they’re all from. Give up? DICK’S Sporting Goods! Yeah, we were also pretty surprised. Turns out DICK’S has way more than just basketballs, sneakers and camping gear. They sell favorites from Ray-Ban, HOKA, Stanley, Nike and so much more.
Keep scrolling for the warm-weather vacation clothes and accessories we’re most excited about this season.
There’s a reason these sandals are such a classic. For trips where you’ll be doing a lot of walking and outdoor activities, Tevas are the obvious choice. They’ve always been super comfortable and durable (who didn’t have the iconic Teva tan lines on their feet after a summer spent at sleepaway camp?) and, over the last few years, have also become surprisingly trendy. This season, we’re lusting after the multicolor version with retro ‘90s tones.
A secure little zipper bag is an absolute must-have for any sort of vacation, and this version from DSG fits the bill perfectly. It comes in 10 different neutrals and fun colors and with a simple and versatile silhouette that’ll work with just about any outfit. Wear it around your waist or adjust the strap to use it as a cross-body bag. The bag fits everything you need plus a little bit more (phone, wallet, sunglasses, keys, chapstick, the Biscoff cookies you didn’t eat on the plane) — ideal for a day out exploring a new city or hiking through trails and water.
We’re talking about summer vacation here, so there are obviously going to be swimsuits involved. Our strategy: Pack a bunch of individual tops and bottoms that you can mix and match for a bunch of different looks. The first piece going in our cart is this classic triangle bikini top from Roxy. It provides enough coverage that you won’t have to constantly worry about flashing the rest of the beach but will still allow you to get that covetable all-over sun-kissed look. The solid color works just as well with matching bottoms like these as it does with a fun pattern or print.
One of the best parts of being on vacation is the incredibly low standard for getting dressed. Breezy pants and dresses that would look like PJs in most settings suddenly become totally appropriate dinner attire. We love these lightweight bottoms from Calia, which work just as well as a beach cover-up as they do for a day out in town. The high elastic waist and drawstring closure make them super forgiving — just what we need while on vacation. They’re available in this airy batik pattern and a few other colors and prints.
It’s true! DICK’S sells Ray-Bans! We told you they’ve got some great stuff. This cool pair brings a cat-eye vibe to the classic Ray-Ban pilot sunglasses, which sounds a little strange but somehow looks exactly right. We’re also into the shift from metal frames, as pilot glasses are usually made, to acetate. Now comes the hard part: choosing between black frames with gray lenses or tortoise frames with brown gradient lenses. Realistically though, we’re getting both.
When you’re spending time in the sun, a good hat is an absolute necessity. We really like this one from Saturday Afternoon, made of 100% natural Tripilla straw. It has a UPF 50+ sun rating, meaning it basically performs double-duty UV protection. The leather strap will keep it from flying off in the wind and getting lost (yes, we’re speaking from personal experience), and the adjustable inner band makes it great for most sizes.
