Selected by Jane Bishop:
What to Pack for Holidays in the Sun
As style director of Travel + Leisure magazine and co-founder of the fashion site Jean Stories, Jane Bishop begins the task of packing for a holiday in the sun with her beloved wardrobe anchor: denim. A beach vacation calls for jean shorts, she explains during a visit to The Apartment by The Line – New York, and reaches for the easy-fitting style that she and her partner in Jean Stories, Florence Kane, developed in collaboration with 3x1 and The Line.
“For day, the cuffed boyfriend short is casual and comfortable, and not so short you can’t go adventuring in them on a whim,” says Bishop, who favors their high-waisted counterpart in white denim for after the sun goes down. “We designed this style to fit like an A-line skirt,” she notes. “It kicks out around the thighs to give you a bit of an hourglass shape—so flattering.”
Bishop’s breezy match for jean shorts is a striped Lemlem tunic (“the perfect beach piece,” she says) that also layers beautifully over a swimsuit, such as the vintage-inspired Perry two-piece (“stylish, modern, and modest”) from Flagpole Swim. For chillier nights, she’ll pack Crippen’s modern take on a classic chambray shirt, and vachetta leather thong sandals from ATP Atelier are an elegant alternative to flip-flops.
Her accessories of choice have an equally effortless-looking appeal: a Sophie Buhai silver cuff and an Albertus Swanepoel straw hat in a natural hue “that goes with everything.” Last but not least are waterproof sunscreen and a sensually scented travel set from Le Labo. “Linda Rodin once told me that one should always travel with her own beauty products,” says Bishop. “I’ve followed her advice—and stopped relying on hotel shampoos and lotions—and it’s a game-changer.”
