Dallas may have seen snow this week, but for fashionable femmes, resort season is on the brain. Today, we’ll help you pack for any upcoming vacays with posh picks under $100.
These stylish selections will leave you plenty of cash for a haute hotel and cabana-worthy cocktails!
The Suit: Resort collections from Gucci and Balmain boasted head-to-toe looks in chic chambray. We love the fabric combined with embellished prints, so we recommend suiting up in ASOS’ jacquard pants and chambray blazer. Pair them with sheer layering pieces and menswear-inspired booties.
The Bling: Channeling Gatsby during their resort presentations, labels like Peter Pilotto and Alexander McQueen gravitated toward Art Deco drama. Steal the style with Topshop’s accessories collection for Nordstrom. Amp up wardrobe staples like your favorite LBD with the line’s collar necklace, heavy metal ring, or statement-making earrings.
The Bag: Altuzarra and Givenchy debuted a wild mix of textures, colors, and patterns on their respective runways. This crossbody bag by RACHEL Rachel Roy for Macy’s is the ideal – and inexpensive – way to rock the trend. Add it to travel basics like skinny jeans and lace-up sandals for an easy, eclectic vibe.
Price Tag: $69, Macy’s
The Shoe: Proenza Schouler and 3.1 Phillip Lim strapped down for resort season, trotting out sexy sandals and pumps that anchored at the ankle. Snag our pick from Bandolino, and you’ll have the perfect, day-to-night pair to pack for your travels.
Price Tag: $69, Piperlime
The Dress: Dresses and separates in classic, resort-worthy white ruled at Celine and Louis Vuitton. Since we’re also obsessed with the pretty, pale shade, we suggest showing off your tan in Nasty Gal’s cool take on the trend. Want a look that’s less bare? Layer the frock with a sheer tee or nude slip.
Price Tag: $48, Nasty Gal
The Bikini: Lastly, Chloe’s barely-there bikinis made a splash during Swim Week Miami. We like gently-priced separates from Forever 21, which offer a shortcut to a seriously stylish day at the beach. Add a high-waisted skirt and metallic flats to take the look from cabana to cocktail hour.
Price Tag: $9.80 – $10.80, Forever 21
