Slipping off to St. Barths

Marni Jeweled Sandals

Inspired by a last-minute weekend trip to the Caribbean, W’s fashion market and accessories director is on the hunt for fashionable pieces that can fit in a carry-on. Here are her ten summer travel must-haves.


I love wearing one-piece swimsuits, especially one that can double as a top. Paired with a cute skirt, this number is perfectly suited for a rosé-fueled lunch at Eden Rock.

I always forget to pack a hat, so I picked this one up at the resort.

Last summer, I carried my straw makeup case to death. Fortunately, Aerin Lauder just released a new one in a brighter color.

I always travel with multiple sweaters. I might be the only person who gets cold at the beach!

J Crew Surf print Knit, $130, net-a–


Although the last time I wore Oakley sunglasses I was skiing in Colorado in the ‘90s, I recently ordered a pair and can’t wait to wear them.

I have been dreaming of Peter Pilotto’s Pre-Fall 2014 prints ever since I first laid eyes on them. These two pieces are available now.

I can never have enough jeweled sandals; they make a T-shirt and a pair of shorts come alive!

I have tried every pair of white denim jeans out there, and I still swear by these.

Gap White Jeans, $70,


This line of beach basics looks great on everyone, and is now available online!

Paired with my silk shorts, this white t-shirt is perfect for hiking down to the Columbier beach.
