In New York, when the temperatures dip, the jetset crowd escapes the winter and goes on holiday. But you don’t have to be uber posh to do like the jet set do. Shop these looks for a high-low resort wardrobe, especially if you want to pack like the most stylish New Yorkers.

Here’s how to pack for resort season like the most fashion-forward New Yorker. The hero of this look is a pair of super chic sunglasses. When it comes to resort wear, the good news is you’re not likely to be wearing much during your vacation.

When it comes to balancing a high-low look, once you’ve invested in your hero accessory, you don’t have to spend a fortune on swimwear to look like a jetsetter. Brands like Topshop offer quality bikini sets you can mix and match for a more versatile look. Add a cute slide, and cover up with a kaftan or playsuit. Costume jewelry is totally fabulous for vacation, as you’ll probably end up wearing it poolside or on the beach. Your one big investment?  A pair of stunning sunnies to tie the look together.

Sit back and enjoy the flight

Comfort is key as you leave New York City for your beach destination. A stylish all-black uniform of tailored athleisure is so New York. And don’t forget your sunglasses, because the fashion set totally rock shades in the airport lounge.
