A picturesque island, brimming with New England charm, vibrant flowers around every corner, and beautiful coastal vibes — Nantucket is our absolute favorite place to vacation as a family! We’ve been planning to bring our four kiddos and my whole family to our annual trip to Nantucket! It is a cherished tradition we eagerly anticipate all year round.
We are headed to Nantucket in the summer and will be packing easy breezy coastal New England style outfits with us, but it’s a beautiful place to visit any time of year!
When the sun shines bright and the salt air is warm, think lightweight fabrics and breezy silhouettes. Opt for sundresses, flowy skirts, and linen shorts paired with flowy tops. I love summer sundresses for my girls, rompers and sets. We love to embrace the nautical aesthetic, blue tones, with classic stripes or anchor prints.
Autumn in New England is magical! This time of year, layering becomes key. Pack cozy sweaters, light jackets, and jeans for strolls along the beach or exploring the cobblestone streets. Earthy tones like olive green, navy, and warm tones blend beautifully with the fall colors.
Spring in Nantucket is a time of blossoming color. It can still be a bit cool so I think mixing fun colors with layers and some warmer pieces is key! Dress in floral prints, pastel shades, and light cardigans. Embrace the island’s floral aesthetic by incorporating floral hair accessories!
While Nantucket may be quieter during winter, its charm remains and I’ve heard it’s magical for Christmas! Bundle up in cozy knitwear, wool coats, and waterproof boots. Don’t forget a hat and scarf to keep warm while exploring the peaceful beaches or sipping hot cocoa by the fire. Winter whites and soft grays capture the island’s serene ambiance.
When packing for your Nantucket getaway, consider these essentials:
Protect your skin from the summer rays with a high SPF.
Wide- brimmed hats are a great way to shield yourself from the sun while adding a touch of elegance.
Opt for stylish yet comfortable footwear for beach days or exploring.
Pack a few versatile dresses that can transition from day to night effortlessly.
Don’t forget to pack your favorite swimsuits for beach days.
Finding outfits for the entire family doesn’t have to be a daunting task. Amazon offers a wide range of options, allowing you to curate stylish and affordable looks. Look for shades of blue, which mirror Nantucket’s coastal palette. Mix and match pieces to create outfits that are comfortable, pretty, and feminine.
Nantucket holds a special place in our hearts as a family vacation destination. Whether you visit in summer, fall, spring, or winter, the island’s charm remains unmatched. From the charming New England style to the abundance of beautiful flowers, Nantucket is truly one of a kind!
