Destination: Summer fashion

Posted on Apr 28 2015 - 7:56am by Alexandra Presley

School will be out in two weeks, which means that summer is soon to be (un)officially in session. Having the perfect outfit for every occasion is an important asset for making your summer vacation a success. Destination dressing is especially exciting, as it can give you a chance to show a different part of your personality. Here are some of the season’s top pieces you can’t miss for your summer get-away.

1. City: The most important thing about dressing for the city is to remember to avoid looking “touristy”. You don’t want to look like you just piled on every statement-making, flashy piece you own (unless, of course, it’s a la Moschino). Stick to urban basics that have a somewhat androgynous feel paired with one feminine piece for a fab contradiction.

2. Resort: Resort-wear is one of the biggest categories of destination dress. Most designers go as far as to come out with a new resort line each year. For the beach, it is imperative to show a little more skin than usual, but also to do so with style. Swimwear is taking exciting new shapes and forms. When paired with a versatile cover-up, you’re ready for almost any adventure in the sun.

3. Music Festival: In the past five years, music festivals have become a cultural phenomenon. Of course, it goes without saying that you must have the perfect wanderlust, hipster (but not too hipster) look. Pick a statement top and pair it with denim shorts (because it’s hot outside, duh). Then grab a hip fringed bag to stow all of your essentials in.
