Wondering how you can look your hottest without bringing your whole closet? Focus on the essentials that can be applied to every outfit making it fun and attractive without repeating.

First, start with shoes. Every girl has a closet full of shoes that she's just dying to introduce to the world. However, you don't want to lug a suitcase just full of shoes. The key to packing wisely is to choose a few perfect pairs that will work with every outfit and activity. Sandals are a must have, especially leather flip-flops and wedge sandals. Leather flip-flops work for walking to the beach, shopping or grabbing a bite to eat. Wedges work when you want to feel a little more dressy – when going on a date or going out dancing.

Here are a few examples of Steve Madden must haves:

Another vacation essential is accessories. Adding a few accessories to your wardrobe can add a little more personality and flair. Bright colors are a fashion must and getting a scarf in any bright color is essential. Other great accessories include a crocheted sun hat, sunglasses, and a bright colored tote.


And finally, the completion to your wardrobe essentials is a Maxi dress. A Maxi dress can be dressed up or down for both night and day wear. It reveals your sexier side. Although it's length reaches the floor, the dress is fitted to your body revealing your natural shape without baring all your skin.
