Rachel Bilson’s Guide to a Spectacular Summer

Whether you’re in the mood to wander or prefer to stay close to home, take a tip from Rachel Bilson, 29, who shares her best recommendations for vacation, spa, swimsuit, nail color and style.

Favorite summer vacation spot
The Golden Triangle Tented Camp, Four Seasons in Thailand,” she tells me. “It’s pretty incredible. It’s a tented camp.  They’re these luxury tents, and it’s an elephant camp, and it’s in the mountain region of Thailand where Laos, Thailand and Burma meet. It’s pretty spectacular.”

She adds, “There’s lots to do. Just explore the local culture and everything like that is pretty neat.”

Favorite summer spa treatment
“A relaxing massage is a good thing, with relaxing oils.”

Favorite swimsuit type
“I like ones that you can tie so you don’t have bathing suit straps,” she explains. “A bandeau is good – bikini. You don’t get marks.”

Favorite summer must-have
“I’m really into good nail color. I think that’s a summer must-have. If you have a little sun, it’s good to have a bright color on your nails. Mimosa by Chanel is really great.”

Favorite summer style tip
“I think it’s all about accessories,” she says. “If you have a dress, if you have jeans and a t-shirt, if you have a statement necklace or shoe or bag or hair accessory … I think those really can pop an outfit.”
