The Big Easy, that’s what resort dressing should feel like, no matter where you are.
I usually find myself in the middle of Manhattan trying to maintain my Zen, or if I’m treating myself to a getaway vacation, loose easy linen clothes are the best investment you can make for looking chic in the dead heat.
Arjé, the husband and wife design team behind the clothes for this shoot, are masters of the chic and simple silhouette rendered in exquisite fabrics that will last a lifetime.
Never mistake an oversize silhouette for cool and comfortable resort dressing as being sexless. It’s the exact opposite of sexless. When done right, loose and easy can be super sexy. It’s a matter of getting the right fabrics that caress the contours of your body and slide gently over the curves of your body as you move.
The most important thing about resort dressing, and especially when you’re home relaxing, is being able to breathe easy in your clothes. What’s sexy is what’s underneath. It’s your swimsuit, your attitude, and you just feeling as light and effortless as being naked with out being obvious or uncomfortable. What I love about the four pieces in this story that I can wear them countless ways for years to come.
In these last few bittersweet days of summer, as we’re gladly moving beyond the dog day heat of August and sadly watching days get shorter and our fall schedules get tighter; I’ve promised myself to take advantage of this time to read, rest, relax, and renew. I’m taking the time to treat myself to foreign language movies and making an effort to end screen time an hour earlier and cuddle up with my husband or get in a bed with a good book as a way to savor the end of summer. What are you doing to savor the last days summer?
