Trench Coats, Daytime Sequins & Robes Are Trending
All the outfit inspo you need this resort season is right this way.| June 9, 2016
Of the many seasons in the fashion calendar, the cruise/resort season is the most schizophrenic. On one hand, you have labels like Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Tory Burch and Emilio Pucci and their relatively cruise-ish collections (i.e. not very obviously cruise, but you see some of the references in the prints, hats, sandals, materials and easy-breezy silhouettes), and then you have the rest, who basically flip the bird at the whole thing and do whatever they want in their collections.
But really, does it matter though? We’ll get the season-appropriate ones from the former, and clothes for other non-cruise times from the latter. Problem solved.
Now that we’ve got that out of the way, let’s talk clothes, specifically trench coats. Calvin Klein Collection, Jil Sander and Fendi are all very into it for the cruise season, and so were Tome and C/MEO Collection during MBFWA last month. Will they shield you from the summer rain? Doubt it, but you’ll look hella chic running from block to block in them. Also, may we suggest getting a trench coat that’s five times too big for you? You be lookin’ so street style, gurl.
If trench coats and possible heat strokes are not your thing though, how about lightweight robes? We’re talking about the nearly floor-grazing, Kardashian-Jenner-approved variety. Joseph and Adam Lippes are down for it. The best thing about them is you don’t even have to actually wear anything under them – just throw on a belt and wear it like a dress.
But, if you do decide to wear something under your robes and trench coats, may we propose daytime sequins? Usually reserved for the end-of-the-year festivities, Tory Burch and Emilio Pucci prove that with really smart styling, sequins can be your next double-duty wardrobe piece. Also, great job on that crazy lady straw hat, Pucci. We’ll take one, please!
