Building a Capsule Wardrobe: Mix & Match to Pack Light for a Beach Trip

With summer in full swing, a beach vacation is undoubtedly the superlative way to unwind and recharge for the rest of the year. As soon as you’ve set the dates, chosen the destination, and booked accommodation, you can finally start getting ready for an ultimate summer adventure.

A fantastic beach vacation requires attention to detail and effort but you can surely succeed by doing your planning ahead of time. What is most important is to take all necessities and still pack light. How is it possible? Easily, if you build a travel capsule wardrobe.

What is a capsule wardrobe?

A capsule wardrobe consists of a small number of interchangeable outfits that go well together. These frequently include pieces in your closet that never go out of style. So, with a little selection of clothing, you may put together a range of distinct looks. Having a few swimsuits you can mix & match on your beach trip make the stress of packing disappear!

Buying a swimsuit makes many women feel worried and stressed, and if you'd rather get a bikini wax than go bikini shopping, you're definitely not alone. Here at Kitty and Vibe, we make finding the perfect bikini so much easier & not a chore.

Mix and match to get a perfect beach fit

Kitty and Vibe are the first to make bikini bottoms based on your butt size. The sizing chart offers two butt size options for every hip size. You’ll never have too much or too little fabric and always have the perfect fit. In addition, the tops and bottoms are interchangeable. Just a little bit of imagination and you can double the number of your beach outfits with the heartwarming and cozy Kitty and Vibe collections.

 If you love florals...

The Poppy Ruffle Scoop with a sweetheart neckline and cheeky coverage Bottoms can make a perfect pair with the Daisy Play Dress that will make you feel comfortable and enjoy the freedom of movement both in and outside the water because it’s made from swim fabric.

In case you prefer bold and bright looks...

Set your eyes on the Snake Collection or Sofia Ruffle Set. These two lively prints make a statement on & off the beach with their bold colors. Try out the Talia and Sofia Vibes' warm hues and cool off with the calming green tone of the Serena Vibe!

Are you keen on Y2K fashion?

Choose your swimsuits from Violet Wave Collection or Marble Collection that remind us of the popular colors & prints of the early 2000s. Time to enter your Y2K chic era. 

For the more minimalist shoppers...

Carolina Vibe paired with our Black Ribbed Collection is the best choice for the minimalist aesthetic. While a two-piece swimwear allows you to expose more skin to the sun and show off your mix-and-match skills, you might still opt for a nice one-piece swimwear for a change. The Plunge One Piece with a deep-v neckline, removable cups, and an adjustable criss-cross back will be an ideal choice.

Time to pack!

As soon as your swim fits are ready to pack, think about comfortable footwear (slippers, sandals, sneakers), beach gear (bag, blanket, towels, umbrella), toiletries and hygiene items, and, of course, sun protection items (sunglasses, sunscreen, SPF lip balm, after-sun lotion, etc.) Ideally, make a complete packing list to save time, not leave anything behind, and at the same time avoid overpacking. Then take your small suitcase and head to the destination that will give you happiness and joy.

You deserve this relaxing time. Take advantage of it and spend days filled with the sun and beautiful nature. Radiate your positive vibes around, enjoy your vacation to the fullest and get back with unforgettable memories!
