Whether you belong to the priviledged wealthy or the working middle class like I do, it´s time to plan for your travel outfits. It doesn´t matter if you´re vacationing in the warm to escape freezing winter (yeah, the rich more-seasoned jet-setters) or you saved throughout the year to make the most of summer vacation by travelling (count me in), you need lightweight, warm-weather gorgeous designs.
For this series of Resort 2013 features, let me start with my fave high-end brand, the Band of Outsiders Resort 2013. The collection is packed with soft printed shorts and mini dresses as well as the spring/summer monochrome trend. Here are the top 5 looks …
Boy. by Band of Outsiders Breton Dress
Boy. by Band of Outsiders Breton Dress, $525.00
Colorblocking is made more fun and casual with this figure-skimming jersey dress featuring colorblock panels designed with contrast stripes. Polished with industrial touches, this Breton Dress lends you a casual but adorable outfit perfect for an upbeat warm weather. You need a pair of really fantastic peep-toe boots for final polishing.
Boy. by Band of Outsiders Poplin & Canvas Romper
Boy. by Band of Outsiders Poplin & Canvas Romper, $625.00
Allow breathing space on your travel outfits by channeling spring´s black and white monochrome trend. It takes only a paper-bag waist to trick the eye into a fabulous look of layered separates when in fact you´re wearing a figure-flattering romper. The bodice is styled in crisp poplin, while the pleated shorts are cut from rugged canvas. Complete the look with this Cindy Speed Lace Boots.
Girl. by Band of Outsiders Elizabeth Dress
Girl. by Band of Outsiders Elizabeth Dress, $375.00
Channel your inner love of modern-vintage through this vintage-inspired dress adorned all over with beautiful flowers drifting over a lightly patterned background. It´s a drop-waist dress which can be worn with or without a slim belt. Its undone pleats add volume to the ruffled skirt which promise fun and girliness.
Girl. by Band of Outsiders Dot Jacquard Blouse
Girl. by Band of Outsiders Dot Jacquard Blouse, $245.00
Whether it´s to team up with an on-trend stripe skirt or with cute stripe knit shorts, this Dot Jacquard Blouse from Girl. by Band of Outsiders is sure to speed up your travel style. With its airy, delicate dot jacquard, this sleeveless blouse is a definition of what is feminine.
Boy. by Band of Outsiders Travel Shorts
Boy. by Band of Outsiders Travel Shorts, $245.00
A pair of gorgeous shorts is a travel staple for me. I can´t enjoy my vacation and travel without at least a pair. But since Army & Denim is a next season´s big trend, I´d be willing to swap my favorite denim shorts for this pair of army green shorts designed with a vintage map of the United States, a playful alternative to pure camouflage. It´s perfect to team up with a green chunky crop sweater.
