How to Dress Like a Model on Vacation, From Bella Hadid to Emily Ratajkowski

Welcome to summer, a time when the weather is hot, the days are long—and, of course, Instagram feeds are flooded with models on far-flung vacations in barely there bathing suits (including plenty of hiked-up ’80s cuts). Most of these are beach moments, as in the case of Laura Love, who sported a brown bikini and shielded herself from the sun in a wide-brim hat while visiting Mexico. (Her accessory of choice? A coconut, of course.) Emily Ratajkowski, like a handful of other It girls, wore summer’s most popular hat, the XXL Jacquemus straw topper.

But the season’s most OTT model vacations haven’t always been about sand and saltwater. Kendall Jenner took a woodsier approach by the lake, sporting a crop top, jeans, and Yeezy camo boots. Bella Hadid skipped the shore and instead snuggled up to a giraffe in a luxe athleisure look that consisted of a sports bra, gym shorts, and a Chanel belt bag.

Stuck in the office until September? You can at least mimic the model-on-holiday look—even if you’re only taking it to the nearest pool. Shop the season’s most inspiring moments here.
