Summer days are dwindling with back-to-school on the brink. But there is still time for one (or two) summer getaways. And to complete the packing list with this summer’s most covetable travel pieces is a single destination in Dallas where everything can be picked up in one swoop.

Highland Park Village is the first self-contained shopping destination in the United States, even being declared a National Historic Landmark. This shopping destination, rich in history and luxury, has curated a list of the most popular summer fashion travel items for 2021.

This is your Highland Park Village Last-Minute Summer Getaway Guide.

Highland Park Village The Conservatory
This durable luggage from The Conservatory is a jet setter staple.

Let’s start with the foundation of all packing for a summer getaway: the suitcase. We’re not talking about just any suitcase. The Conservatory is home to a pioneer of aluminum and polycarbonate suitcases: Rimowa Original Cabin Luggage. The brand has been around over a century, with an iconic design that is synonymous with the golden age of aviation. The durability is next level, and will stand out in a crowd.

This mini packs a big savoir-faire.

Another parcel accessory that must accompany any trip is the handbag. Highland Park Village has no shortage of supply when it comes to the multitude of handbag offerings. It could take an entire day to sort through the luxe collection it boasts. One of the most coveted handbags of the year actually comes in a “mini” size, perfect for any type of vacation, elevating a carry-on or even adorning the perfect evening look. The iconic Dior location in Highland Park Village is seeing the Mini Dior Book Tote fly off the shelves. The silhouette is fully embroidered with the House’s hallmark Dior Oblique motif, a prime example of the brand’s savoir-faire. Dior, 214.520.6494, Mini Dior Book Tote, $2,550.

You’ve also likely noticed many Dallasites, and those spied amidst summer travel, clutching the Valentino Supervee Handbag in Raffia with Chevron Pattern. This highly versatile, neutral handbag can be dressed up or down. A neutral must be a staple in the quintessential Dallas woman’s closet after all.

This neutral is situationally and seasonally versatile.

Now let’s talk about the contents that will be tucked away ever-so-preciously in our luggage and handbags. We all need travel-sized products for our morning and nightly routines. Bluemercury is the Dallas mecca for the finest skincare, makeup, haircare and fragrance products. In true traveling spirit, the brand is home to two Dallas favorite kits that contain the ideal travel-sized essentials: Rahua Jet Setter Kit and Dr. Barbara Sturm Discovery Kit.

Fashion is often the highlight of any trip. Instagram posts, activities and even destination selection often revolve around what we want to wear on vacation. 

To escape the Texas heat, many Texans venture to the beach for one last summer rendezvous. Tagging along with them is a swimsuit of choice. Tory Burch offers a variety of options with the brand’s famous colorful prints, including the Printed Underwire Bikini Top, and accompanying High-Waist Bikini Bottoms.

This next one may be the standout, number one must-have on the list. It seems as though every Instagram scroll dons a La Vie Style House caftan. They are simply cravably covetable, and a true status icon. The No. 770 white mesh maxi caftan is the most popular one of the season.
