Resort Wear 2017: Swimwear

Swimwear is the focus of Part 2 of 3 in the Resort Wear 2017 series.  We’ve got four looks for you today that cover a range of personal style types.

Swimwear Look 1: Romantic/Feminine

First up is a romantic/feminine look.  This suit has been a favorite of mine on Pinterest.  It’s a simple, classic style made romantic by the addition of crochet trim.  A ruffled white tunic cover-up, embroidered straw bag and tasseled flip-flops complete this feminine girl’s look.

OOTD: Weekend Casual

This weekend casual look came about when I purchased this Fair Isle sweater from J. Crew. The company has been having a bit of trouble recently, demonstrated by the fact that they’re running items at a near constant 40-50% off.  Prints and patterns are atypical for me but I was looking for a piece to liven up my basics.  The bright blue colors and combo stripes and pattern in this piece called out and I wasn’t disappointed when the sweater arrived.  The wool quality (which has gotten to be suspect on some recent J.

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.
