Winter Getaways: How to Dress for Day and Night
Welcome to February! You probably didn’t want that greeting—who needs a cheery introduction to snow, slush and seriously frigid winds anyway? Unless of course you’re planning a getaway this month to a warm destination, in which case winter is your time to work on your tan, sip tropical drinks, and rock a great resort wear wardrobe.
For your days sightseeing and walking the boardwalk, go for maxi dresses or sundresses in a vibrant shade of turquoise, orange or sea blue, a posh pair of sunglasses, and lots of arm candy—bangles, bracelets, and a great statement watch. If you find you need a cover-up, a shrunken denim jacket or fitted linen blazer paired with a straw fedora will have you looking like a 7-day all-inclusive celeb!
When the sun sets you might need something a little more formal for dinner, or cocktails at the hotel bar. Be sure to pack classic pieces in fun prints and bright colours that you can pair with basic bottoms and a great clutch. This Jones New York Collection shell has the added bonus of featuring an embellished neckline which means no stress in having to find complementary jewellery.
