It’s usually around high summer when I find myself living entirely out of my suitcase. Even when I'm home, I can barely find the time to unpack between my short weekend trips to the beach and my week-long summer vacations.

In the off-chance that I do get around to unpacking — then subsequently repacking, I find that no matter where I’m going, there are a few sartorial items that never get left behind. The reason, in part, is due to their sheer versatility. It’s those hero basics with a little extra something that can be worn appropriately in just about any setting.

This season, it’s my cotton voile, pico puff sleeve Loup Charmant blouse that I can’t seem to travel without. Loup Charmant is known for soft, lightweight separates that are the foundation for a perfect travel wardrobe. This breezy, ethereal blouse, in particular, is equal parts effortless and dressed-up, allowing you to transition seamlessly from the plane to the beach then straight into your evening plans. The cotton is breathable for a long travel day or a throw-on top for the beach, and the feminine ruffled detail at the sleeve and neckline make it a more polished option for a night out.

Below, we show you how to style this blouse three ways for more efficient packing.
