Mediterranean boat tours. Mid-afternoon aperitivos. Beach days under those iconic striped umbrellas. We’re just a *little* jealous of our editorial director’s upcoming tour of Italy’s top vacation destination. Sticking to a smart color palette of whites, blues and olive greens, she has curated a simply stylish packing list for a stay on the Amalfi Coast. Here are ten staples she’s bringing along for the ride (and yes, that includes her many boat trips).

AYR The Porch Dress

"Summers in Italy can be very hot. For this reason, I'm making sure to pack a few breezy dresses to keep in rotation. This linen option from one of my favorite brands, AYR, comes with a belt and is lined—an uncommon, but welcome addition to the slightly sheer seersucker fabric."

Buy It ($245)


Club Monaco Hayzehl Dress

"Since we won't be in the U.S. for the Fourth of July, we’re planning to celebrate by sailing to Capri and spending the day swimming in the Mediterranean. Because we'll be going from boat to land (and back again), I'm packing a dress that can act like a beach cover-up, but is appropriate enough for lunch, window shopping or whatever else we might stumble upon."

Buy It ($279)


Everlane The Wide Leg Crop Pant

"I'm attempting to pack in a certain color palette (whites, blues, military greens) in the hopes that all my pieces pair well together without too much extra thought. These pants are already a staple in my current wardrobe, so I know they’ll be an ideal vacation piece.”

Matches Fashion

Ganni Murillo Gingham Tank

"I spotted this top on Instagram months ago, and it was one of my first purchases for this vacation. I love it because it looks like your little Italian grandmother made a trendy top from her favorite apron."

Buy It ($193)


Equipment Taimee Linen Shorts

"These shorts are an elevated supplement to my trusty denim pair. Perfect for dinners or sightseeing."

Buy It ($250)


Reformation Clementine Top

"I can't get enough of the prairie sleeve. The best part about this top: You can pull down the sleeves to rock an off-the-shoulder look. It's day-to-night in one easy blouse."

Buy It ($148)

Fella Swim

Fella Swim Dante High-Waist Bottom

"Another Instagram find (can you tell I spend a lot of time scrolling?). This Australian brand has a slew of super fun and flattering fits. I settled on the Dante high-waist bottoms and the Solomon top in Monet Navy, but the Monet Caramel color was a close second."

Buy It ($81)


Castañer Carina 80 Canvas Wedge Espadrilles

"At first glance, you're probably thinking that ankle-tie wedges are not a reliable shoe. But as someone who gets blisters from nearly every sandal she's ever worn, I promise you that these are little miracles. The soles are perfectly cushioned, the fabric is soft and the ties have never once come undone."

Buy It ($120)


Bembien Isla Bag

"Founded by one of our PureWow 100 2018 honorees, Bembien bags just scream summer. I'll be using this Isla tote to carry everything from SPF to mozzarella di Bufala and prosciutto sandwiches."

Buy It ($260)


Cuyana Summer Hat

"You can't go to the Amalfi Coast with a sunhat, now can you?"
