Choosing the right lingerie can be a little tricky at times but doubly so when it is for a specific occasion. As with all lingerie purchases, the piece or pieces you buy need to be comfortable for you, both in fabric and fit as well as style. If you’re thinking of making a lingerie purchase before you embark on your summer travels and aren’t quite sure what factors to consider, keep reading for our top tips to ensure you make the right choice. Read on for more.
Where Are You Going?
Your dreamy summer destination matters when choosing your silk sleep and loungewear, especially if you want to match the location’s overall vibe. A quick search online will give you an idea of the styles of your location which you can then try to match to your lingerie style. For example, our Marisa collection would be perfect for a summer getaway to Greece with its white and blue hues but would be equally at home in an English garden. Meanwhile, our Kacey collection will keep you cool and comfortable when visiting hotter locales and beachside resorts.
Consider the Weather
Before deciding on what pieces to purchase, consider the weather of where you are headed. Will their summer be hotter or are you headed across the equator where it will be winter when you arrive? Do the nights get cold or stay hot? Use this to help inform your sleep and loungewear choices. When in doubt, you can never go wrong with a short PJ set or, for more mild destinations, the Raquel Wrapped Silk PJ Set. If you’ve got your heart set on pairing a babydoll or chemise with a short jacket and exploring your summer location, check ahead to find out what the weather will be like when you get there so as not to be caught unawares.
Whether you plan to be lounging poolside at a private resort or museum hopping through a European city, keep your activities in mind when planning your loungewear. While the top priority is on you looking and feeling your best, some activities may require a change in wardrobe. As you start to plan your activities for your fun summer getaway, mentally plan your outfits as well, that way your chances of being caught off guard are lessened.
Lingerie Packing Checklist
Read our essential lingerie packing list for any destination for outfit ideas and helpful reminders, here:
Camisoles and tap pants - Never underestimate how comfortable your night’s sleep will be in a soft, cooling camisole and tap pant set. Every destination, both warm and mild, is perfect for these essential pieces. As well, camisoles aren’t just great for something to sleep in. Pair them with a short jacket and skinny jeans for a dressed-up look when exploring art galleries or heading out on the town. Shop our Morgan collection for a large variety of hues or, for more casual tastes, explore what Dylan has to offer.
Chemises - Great for a warm day lounging by the pool or layering for some outerwear, a chemise will be your best friend in hotter climates thanks to the temperature-regulating silk and moisture-wicking. It’s also a cute addition to your nighttime routine, whether you’re traveling solo and treating yourself or traveling with your significant other and creating lasting holiday memories. Our favourite chemises for this summer are the Precious Sunset silk chemise and the Raquel Feminine Lounge swing silk chemise.
Short Robes - For wrapping up in your room after a long day out, tossing over your sleepwear to have coffee in the morning sun, or wearing down to lounge at the pool, a short robe is a must-have for any summer destination.
Beyond the Sheets Loungewear - While the majority of our styles are versatile enough to be worn beyond the sheets, some collections are a lot easier to wear out and about while exploring a new area. The Kacey City collection was designed with this in mind and features a variety of styles that are perfect for keeping you cool and looking great in hotter climates while also being made with Lyocell/Cupro for a soft touch and flattering fit. Similarly, the Marisa collection features lounge trousers, a bandeau bralette top, and a short kimono wrap jacket that can be worn together or separately with other pieces in your wardrobe for an elegant holiday look. If you’re looking for culottes and tank tops, explore what the Dylan collection has to offer. Their short PJ top would also be an excellent choice when wandering around a new location and wanting to keep cool in the summer sun.
A Travel Outfit - You should be dressed comfortably yet classy on your flights to and from your destination, especially for longer flights. Having some temperature-regulating silk loungewear on hand will ensure you’re at the perfect temperature and stay comfortable no matter how long your flight takes. From the Dylan Urban Travel silk pj set to the Raquel Wrapped Silk PJ Set or even the Marisa collection once more (to ensure more space in your luggage by wearing your silk loungewear on multiple occasions), we are certain that you’ll be able to find the perfect travel outfit among our various collections.
