Believe it or not, we’re nearing the halfway point of 2022, and between COVID resurgences, unkind weather and the jarring realization that the ’90s were over 30 years ago, it’s put us through the wringer. It’s probably why you’re salivating at the mere idea of a getaway. With summer rapidly approaching, it’s becoming a tantalizing reality. Yes, the holiday season (we’re employing the Euro definition here, of course) is nearly upon us, and it’s never seemed so important.
But what the hell are you going to wear? With a rapid trend cycle and ever-changing rules, it can be hard to know if old faithfuls like linen shirts and leather sandals are still the right choice. As if that weren’t enough, serious planning and packing feel counterintuitive to the zero-stress vacay game. What’s worse, the headache of forgetting your favorite (liner-free, we’re not monsters) bathing suit, or the time and effort that goes into finding the perfect online two weeks before you depart?
That’s where we, the editors of InsideHook — with a little help from luxury retailer Mytheresa and their beautifully curated vacation shop — come in. We’ve studied, scoured and subsequently selected four ensembles to cover all your getaway bases, from a dressed-up dinner out to a casual day on the sand. Each ‘fit is a guaranteed knockout, but the individual pieces will work well on their own, as well. Plus, with free 30-day returns, fast 2-day delivery and complimentary USA shipping for orders over $500, you can afford to pick and choose. So whether you’re filling suitcase gaps or building a holiday wardrobe from the ground up, find all the hottest apparel, accessories and footwear to make this vacation one to remember below.
The Formal Festivities ‘Fit
The words “black tie” shouldn’t exist on your sandy beach vacation, but that doesn’t mean you have to stick to a bare chest and swim trunks at the Michelin-star restaurant. A handsome (albeit lightweight) button-up and some crisp white slacks are the perfect vacay yin-yang for formal events, especially when they’re dressed down with some (partially) open-toed footwear and statement sunglasses.

Church’s Strapped Leather Sandals
Polo Ralph Lauren Cotton Chinos
Dior Acetate Rectangle Sunglasses
The Sandy Statement Suit
Ah, the beach; perfect for lounging, swimming, and…getting a ‘fit off? A short little number — no longer than 5″, s’il vous plaît — for the surf is standard operating procedure in 2022, as is the bucket hat, the summer headwear of choice. An airy top for jaunts to the bar and some easy-off loafers round out what is surely the hottest look on the beach.
