Flipflops? Checked. Sunscreen? Checked. Sunny destination? Checked. Luggage? Packed. It looks like we’re ready for Resort 2011! While some of us do last-minute Christmas shopping, others are booking a vacation to unwind from all the holiday spirit.
Like your travel, airport attire should be stress-free. Bottega Veneta keeps things classic and very relaxed. DKNY adds a feminine spin to cargo.
ACCESSORIZE: Every vacation wardrobe needs a few essentials; a brimmed hat paired with a Chanel-inspired jacket, a chunky bib necklace, a great canvas bag, a set of flirty open-toe stacked heels and a fuzzy sweater.
TAKE A TOUR: Lounging by the beach never looked so good! Diane von Furstenburg keeps things ultra cool with a leather visor, a light sweater, graphic shorts and bright open-toe heeled clogs. Gucci brings a jungle approach to sightseeing with earth-tone elements. And Jason Wu makes a stroll on the boardwalk super-romantic with a brimmed hat, striped top, delicate tuxedo jacket (with matching shorts) and two-toned round-toe shoes.
BREAKFAST… LUNCH… DINNER: Listen to the ocean waves and feel the tropical breeze as you enjoy an outdoor breakfast of freshly stacked blueberry pancakes drizzled with real maple syrup and an invigorating tall glass of lemon water. Michael Kors brings the beach-side bistro to life with a soft loose sweater, python mini and leather strapped sandals. Enjoy a grilled chicken Caesar salad with sweet iced tea in this adventurous number from Salvatore Ferragamo, combined with khaki, ivory and tanned leather. Nibble on hors d’oeuvres in Jason Wu! This festive feathered top is equally proportioned with a sophisticated black skirt and subtle pumps.
BAREFOOT (on the sand): The sun starts to set, luscious colors (pink and orange) begin to illuminate the sky. The Girl from Ipanema plays softly in the background. With a scenery like that, you’ll definitely need to dress the part. With a selection like this, you’ll surely get noticed!
HOT ENOUGH FOR A SCOOP OF VANILLA: A fashion icon in her time, Jackie O spoke volumes with her wardrobe. Simply put, she sizzled in white. Chloe, Gucci, J. Mendel, Michael Kors and Salvatore Ferragamo pay homage to the once first lady with an updated twist to a timeless look.
BLAME IT ON THE TEQUILA SUNRISE: Picked-off-the-vine fruit juices and a colorful plate of your favorite citrus. Be inspired by what you eat. Go ahead, throw a punch of color into your daily wear! Spruce things up! Make a splash with this collection of tunics, button-ups, trousers, blouses, jackets and dresses.
A NIGHT OUT ON THE TOWN: So you’ve been cordially invited to a party. While rummaging through your closet, out comes the perfect black suit. It’s ageless, safe enough to wear to most events, but it needs something… Hm… Celine understands that first impressions count and added gold accents. J. Mendel is daring with a plunging neckline. Louis Vuitton keeps the look from overpowering with a brimmed hat, elegant lace top and a pair of lady-like gloves. Marc by Marc Jacobs knows the value of a statement piece and adds a bold chain. Preen never underestimates the power of a silky top with t-strap heels. Salvatore Ferragamo translates the masculine appeal of a Black Tie Affair and feminizes it.
