You Should Definitely Pack These Affordable Finds for Your Next Getaway

Summer has officially commenced. The fashion set is jetting off to new destinations both near and far, and you can bet that they’re packing a stylish wardrobe. Paying for the actual “travel” part of a vacation is expensive enough, so it makes sense that many fashion people are turning to more affordable retailers for on-trend looks during their trips. What’s one spot that’s been bubbling up in all of my conversations? Free Assembly. The brand boasts mega-cute pieces without the cringe-worthy price tag. Fashion editor Judith Jones and content creator Ellen Kim ran me through the pieces they’re loving from the latest summer collection (including a $26 crochet polo that both of them are raving about), and I’m all in. Keep scrolling to shop six looks that you’ll be folding into your suitcase in no time.

“I’m a big fan of a polo silhouette. It inherently adds a preppy polish to any look. This one in a cool crochet fabric is perfect for summer and will undoubtedly keep me cool in the sweltering heat. I’ve styled it with ivory denim shorts, a black belt, and cushy flatforms for a casual-chic look I could wear literally anywhere on vacation—ideal for a day of exploring or chilling al fresco at a restaurant. I love how comfortable and breathable the crochet polo is. It’s a chic option to wear with denim shorts instead of reaching for a basic tee.”

“This flowy, easy dress is great for any occasion from beach adventures to a day of shopping with my family. The best part? It’s lightweight and so easy to pack for traveling. I styled it with easy heels and a straw bag that feels super summery. You can even throw on a blazer for a cool date-night look.”

“I’ve always been a neutral person, but right now, I’m actually reaching for brighter colors and fun prints. I’m surprising myself, but I love it! When styling this look, I wanted to keep it simple with neutral heels and a tan bag to really let the fun stripes of the dress pop. The belt adds an extra element that makes it feel even more unique. I’ll definitely be throwing this on for brunches on vacation (and in my own city).”

“I love styling darker shorts with lighter pieces like this white polo top for a cool contrast moment. I’d wear this look to hang out with friends, catch a baseball game, or tour a new city! It’s really easy to wear. The crochet fabric of the shirt feels so on-trend for the summer, making the outfit look super elevated (and way more expensive than it actually is).”

This is giving preppy-chic, and I’m not mad about it.

I’m pairing this with linen shorts and gold huggie hoops.

A nautical vibe for your boat-day adventure.

An easy romper to throw on post-beach day.

Did you notice the twist shoulder detail? It makes the top look way more than $14.

It’s a known fact that linen wide-leg pants were basically made for a sunny getaway. Don’t try to argue with me.

I want them in every color.

This will take you from a pool day to drinks with the snap of a finger.

The ribbed fabric makes this feel even more elevated.
