A big vacation is—let’s just say it—intimidating. All the preparation and saving can be something of a waking nightmare, but there’s an excitement that drives it all. Knowing you’re about to experience something completely special, whether it’s for the first time or the tenth, is infectious.There are new sights to be seen and people to meet! And what you pack is as vital as your boarding pass and passport. We’re not ones to advocate blending in, but sticking out like sore, touristy thumb is the bane of any aspiring jet-setter. You want to curate your wardrobe, down to the sunglasses you bring, to play the part, be it the French girl, Manhattanite, beach-goer, road tripper, or Spanish romantic.

You could search high and low for the perfect pair of jet-setter sunnies, but we'll save you the time: Tiffany & Co.’s Atlas collection is designed for travel, and travel with style.

Ahead, see just how versatile the collection is when paired with five, splurge-worthy getaway destinations.
