Resort Wear 2017: Casual Day Wear

Are you lucky enough to be heading somewhere warm this winter?  If so, it’s time to start thinking about resort wear.  In this 3-part series, we’ll be looking at casual day wear, swim and evening looks.  First up is casual day wear.  We’ve used a navy, sand and white color scheme throughout for better mix and match opportunities with the accessories.

Resort Shorts Look

Our first look pairs white side-button detail shorts with a chambray top and some brightly colored accessories.  It’s a look that will keep you cool but polished when out sightseeing.  If you’ve never tried colored sunnies before, try easing in with a deep blue pair.  They’re a bit easier to carry off than some lighter and brighter hues and this pair coordinates with all the outfits shown today.

  • Chambray One Shoulder Top
  • White House Black Market Maritime Coastal Stretch Shorts – 64
  • Splendid Eliza Platform Ankle Wrap Espadrille
  • Tory Burch 55 mm Sunglasses
  • Kate Spade Forever Stud Earrings (two of five great colors shown)
  • Tory Burch Collins Double Wrap Leather Strap Watch
  • Clare V Madras Pouch
