Model and entrepreneur Rocky Barnes knows how to make travel look easy and sexy. Just check out her Instagram feed, an envy-inducing visual grid of her extravagant excursions to Brazil, Morocco and St. Bart’s, to name a few places. And in every single photo, the brunette beauty is sporting effortless pieces that enhance the scenic backgrounds.
We wish putting together vacation outfits was this simple! And now, thanks to Barnes, it kind of is.
Barnes recently teamed up with Express for a capsule collection filled with fashion-forward apparel and accessories to “make sure you don’t overpack and save you time getting dressed.” Everything is super affordable — all under $108 — and complements different body shapes.
One of the biggest lessons Barnes has learned about packing for vacation is to “bring pieces that mix well with each other, and outfits that can work both day and night with the change of shoes or a bag.” So, it’s no surprise that her collection with Express includes transitional items, such as high-waisted printed shorts, satin midi skirts, strappy sandals and our favorite, a black bodysuit.
“The bodysuit is for sure an everyday staple!” Barnes tells Yahoo Lifestyle. “I love that they always look polished (as opposed to a blouse that comes untucked) and is the perfect layering piece.”
We also appreciate how much thought Barnes put into small accents that make a big impact — for example, the sweetheart neckline of the bodysuit. “Little details like this make it easy to bring from day to night, and the ribbing on the fabric makes it super flattering on everyone,” she explains.
In the video above, Barnes shows us three equally stylish and comfortable looks using the bodysuit as the anchor piece. Watch and be inspired!
