Winter is coming to an end, which can only mean one thing — it’s time to start planning your springtime getaway. But with so many options to choose from, why not take a few travel tips from people who know a thing or two about jet-setting in style? Models and influencers like Ashley Graham, Jasmine Tookes, Olivia Culpo, and Rocky Barnes prove that industry insiders do it best. Scroll down for a look at how fashion folk spring break. ✈️
When former Miss Universe and model/influencer @OliviaCulpo isn’t hanging at her family restaurant Back 40 in Kingstown, Rhode Island or cheering on her man Danny Amendola from the Patriots sidelines, she can be found jet-setting all over the world to places like Singapore, Hawaii, and Dubai. Clearly the girl knows how to perfect the camel pose and often visits the UAE city to teach makeup seminars with her glam squad BFF Patrick Ta.
@Zeebalife looks like the epitome of relaxation when she visits Paradisus Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic for paradise in the form of crystal blue water, eco-activities like mangroves tours and bike riding, and unlimited culinary offerings at numerous on-property restaurants, bars, and outdoor grills.
Jasmine Sanders and Nicole Williams
Considering these BFFS are dating bro besties Terrance Jenkins and Larry English, they seem to spend a lot of time together — most recently on a couples getaway at the W Scottsdale in Arizona where they also hit up a hookah lounge and raced dirt bikes for a little R&R.
@SincerelyJules loves herself a good pic (with great lighting) and happens to take them in some pretty epic locales — such as the Amanpuri Resort in Phuket, Thailand and Hotel Esencia in Tulum, Mexico for example — but the City of Lights is her latest glamorous stop for a 📷 next to the Eiffel Tower.
Mega babe @EmRata is no stranger to flawless bikini pics, but we’re FOMO’ing pretty hard after seeing her shots from Maderas Village, a boutique hotel in Playa Maderas, Nicaragua. Where there are palm trees and Buddha statues, there are plenty of ops for her to snap a ‘gram (or 70).
@JasTookes flies everywhere with her fellow Victoria’s Secret Angels, but Antarctica has gotta be one of her best trips so far, don’t cha think? We would trade in our intimates for some layered outerwear to capture this snowy shot as well!
When visiting Faena Hotel Miami Beach it’s not only customary, but mandatory, to have a meet-and-greet with Damien Hirst’s iconic ‘Gone But Not Forgotten’ golden woolly mammoth sculpture. Channel @RosieHW when you have your moment.
@ErinOConnor knows what’s good in London: Claridge’s, a five-star Art Deco luxury hotel in the heart of Mayfair. She obviously has good taste (literally, we see those fries) because this jewel has sheltered chic travelers since opening its doors in 1854. Kings, designers, and socialites have all chosen to stay here, and for the fashionable crowd interested in mastering some of the hotel’s famed dishes in their own casa, the property recently unveiled Claridge’s: The Cookbook. Ya know, in case you can’t hop across the pond at this very second.
Giovanna Battaglia Engelbert
Creative director and fashion editor @Bat_Gio can stay anywhere she wants, but when it comes to the Maldives, she prefers walking the (mesh net) plank at The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli. And who can blame her? The 77 all-villa resort features on-land and overwater accommodations (that would be over the turquoise Indian Ocean water no less), each with its own a private pool, and a bevy of activity options for guests like kayaking, snorkeling, anti-gravity yoga, jumping fitness trampolines, and more. Oh and you can charter Norma — an Azimut flybridge 66 yacht — while you’re there. #NBD
This pic alone makes us want to grab every cozy blanket and PJ set in sight and just set up camp for the day at Gurney’s Newport like influencer @Bridget. Plus, there’s no shortage of things to do in Newport, like strolling along the Cliff Walk, touring the mansions, dining at Italian hotspot Scarpetta, or capping off the night with a cocktail by one of the three fire pits.
What, you don’t ride around on camels in Morocco like @TheAshleyGraham? Then you’re just not doing it right.
Influencer @Zorannah checks into The Palms Turks and Caicos on pristine Grace Bay Beach for conch diving, complimentary tennis lessons, paddle boarding, kayaking, windsurfing, snorkeling, and surfside strolls for the photos, obvi.
Just in case you’re planning to stake out Lake Como and the Grand Hotel Tremezzo until you catch a George and Amal sighting, be sure to peep @Kelsey_White‘s feed first for outfit inspo. And if you get bored waiting around for Italy’s hottest duo (although that’s not possible), you can always try your hand at a pasta/pizza-making class on the property or #TreatYoSelf to a pampering facial at T Spa.
There’s never a dull moment on Miami’s South Beach — just ask French model and influencer @AudreyBouette, who’s posed for everyone from Sports Illustrated to Dior. When in the Magic City she spends her time at Mondrian South Beach soaking up the sun at the legendary pool, getting photoshoot-fresh at GUYandGIRL Spa, and taking advantage of the Audi Silvercar rental program.
Social stars love the millennial pink walls at The Don CeSar, which opened at the height of the Great Gatsby era in 1928 and is known as Florida’s “Pink Palace” today. Plus you can saunter down to the sugar sand stretch of St. Pete Beach and live your best life like Miami-based fashion blogger @ImNotSorryDarling.
@ASliceOPi likes to play lifeguard whenever she’s in Watch Hill, Rhode Island at the historic (and luxurious) Ocean House, where beach days, lobster broils and BBQs, Sunday jazz brunch, and visiting the 8,000-bottle library wine cellar are the norm.
What we wouldn’t give to trade shoes (er, cowboy boots) with @LonestarSouthern at the Rosewood Inn of the Anasazi in Santa Fe, New Mexico RN. Not only is it one of *the cutest* Southwestern boutique hotels ever designed, but its modern take on Pueblo life keeps everyone returning to its doors year after year.
