Spring Break is here and although I’m not heading off to any sunny destination, I know plenty of people who are. I can’t complain though, the weather in California has been just about perfect and has turned my focus to warm weather vacation attire.
Any poolside/beach outing always involves a little thought. I like cover-ups to work double duty…taking me from beach to street while offering a fair dose of sun protection. This photo of Alexa Chung relaxing deck-side got me thinking about injecting prints into my normally classic palette too. Tempered with a healthy dose of white, I think brights look great.
A big white shirt as cover-up, a patterned scarf and bright bathing suit are perfect starting points. Then, I like the addition of a couple shots of strong solids with emerald green Valentino lace espadrilles and blue mirrored Ray-Ban’s. Aside from the swimsuit, everything easily translates to street wear all summer long.
