ALWAYS ON VACATION

ALWAYS ON VACATION

A good vacation wardrobe should be multifaceted. If you are using these warmer days to unwind and disconnect from work, what you wear can assist with these well-deserved efforts…and look fabulous in photos for sunny social posts (and years) to come. A getaway wardrobe used to start with a few staple pieces in coordinated colors made from breathable (and packable) fabrics like cotton and linen, but this is no longer the case.

If you cannot live like you are always on vacation, you can certainly dress like it. Here, THE EDIT ADVISORY’S style-sharing Krystal DeLisi and Ellen Mason, recommend some of their favorite summer runway trends that give maximum vacation vibes, whether for your vacation time away or at home.

AQUA STYLE

No vacation wardrobe is complete without a sweet swimsuit, and they have never been more versatile–in the pool or out. From any color to any cut, it’s wise to always be water ready.

RETRO CHIC

Let the prints do all the work, so you don’t have to. You are on vacation, after all. In fact, bold prints signify time off more than ever.

DAY INTO NIGHT

For balmy evenings spent snacking on fresh fish and sipping rose, you will need a stylish look–beyond caftans and other traditional coverups that you’ve become accustomed to wearing. So go ahead, ramp it up, and see where the evening takes you.

TROPICAL LUSTER

From power suits to more relaxed silhouettes, wear this vacation print to the board room or the swim-up bar. The blue skies, after all, are the only limit to what style choices you choose.

BELIEVE ALL THE HYPE

BELIEVE ALL THE HYPE

Now that the world is returning to normal, more than ever, the fashion collections featured some rather bold colors…and this summer’s looks are showing some of the most daring hues yet. Brighten your closet and outlook with these mood-boosting hyper colors that reach across all styles and silhouettes, according to our style reporters Krystal De Lisi and Ellen Mason, founders of THE EDIT ADVISORY.

HYPER PINK

With Millennial Pink having left the building, we can move onto other vibrant shades of the magnificent color pink. From cotton candy to fuchsia, think pink like never before. It’s the pretty and feminine pick-me-up we all want.

 

As Seen On: Proenza Schouler, Christian Dior, Louis Vuitton, as well as Paris and Milan street style.

 

 

HYPER YELLOW

From sunflower to lemons, yellow is a happy color that perks up any outfit. Head to toe, yellow makes a cheerful statement that invites compliments and second looks. You’ll see.

 

As Seen On: Prada, COS, Valentino, Vetements, Undercover, Arteprima, and Richard Quinn.

 

 

HYPER TURQ

Torq your turq. Turquoise, that is. It’s easily the cheeriest shade of blue in the universe, don’t you think? From Santa Fe to all points beyond, the re-discovered hue is making its mark as the best focus color of any spring ensemble. It’s perfect to accessorize with, too.  

 

As Seen On: Nina Ricci, Giada, Isabel Marant, as well as Copenhagen and Milan street style.

 

 

HYPER LIME

And you thought lime green was a color only a grandmother could love. Freshly picked from the runway trees, this vibrant green says hello, I’m here like no other in the color spectrum.

 

As Seen On: Versace, Emilio Pucci, MSGM, Shang Xia, David Korma, and Emilia Wickstead.

GARDEN EXPLOSION

Another trend that embodies the triumphant return of spring is the use of vibrant, large-scale floral prints. Unlike the muted pastels of previous spring collections, these florals are colorful, oversized, and often kaleidoscopic in nature. Beyond enlarged flowers, unique patterns are created by magnifying a single petal or stem. 

 

Key Details: Head-to-toe looks that make you feel like you are literally wrapped in flora and the occasional fauna. This is not the ditsy floral print made popular by the Cottagecore trend. These are oversized, large-scale bursts of flowers and colors. Garden fauna prints included butterflies and dragonflies, magnifying a single wing to create a unique print.

 

As Seen On: Chanel, Gucci, Oscar de la Renta, Marc Cain, and Schiaparelli

METAL GLAM

Designers celebrated the return of the runway with looks that borrowed from glamrock fashions of the past while retaining a bit of the post-apocalyptic feel that has been prevalent since the pandemic began. With the sequin, the glam comes. From metallic materials to sophisticated metal details, the combination of mixed metal-earth tones and sparkly neutrals create an overall palette that is both grounded and sparkly. Key Details: This trend evokes everything from the big hair, glam rock bands of the 1980s to the supermodel-filled Versace collections of the 1990s. There are also hints of 1970s disco, 1980s punk, and the multi-decade use of fringe. Designers also used a lot of pleating and cutouts in gleaming, sometimes foil-like textiles.   

 

As Seen On: Balmain, Christopher Kane, Givenchy, Lanvin, and Courreges

[et_pb_flex_gallery gallery_ids=”44500,44501,44502,44503,44504″ show_title_and_caption=”off” _builder_version=”4.14.8″ _module_preset=”default” global_colors_info=”{}”][/et_pb_flex_gallery]

ULTRA SPORT LUXE

True performance-based, activewear staples are given the fashion treatment with puffed sleeves, refined cutouts, sophisticated colors, color blocking, and retro athletic details. The inspiration for this trend goes well beyond Barre, HIIT, or other gym activities. These collections are based on extreme, ultra-sports, but it is indeed fashion. 

 

Key Details: Look for this trend to be everywhere, but called something different, probably with “core” attached. ActiveCore, PerformanceCore, Peak PerformanceCore, UltraCore, or UltraActiveCore, to name a few. The trend also has fun playing with the extreme juxtaposition of two pieces you would not normally style together. Go beyond denim and pearls and opt for a weatherproof poncho and Louboutin stilettos look.

 

As Seen On: Tom Ford, Louis Vuitton, Stella McCartney, MSGM, and Nikolaj Storm

SPRING’S TRIUMPHANT RETURN

SPRING’S TRIUMPHANT RETURN

Spring is the season of rebirth, and there’s no slow, gentle awakening this year. In fact, the Spring/Summer 2022 designer collections are bursting with vibrancy and optimism for the future while still including small nods to nostalgic influences of the past, according to our trendsetters, THE EDIT ADVISORY’S Krystal DeLisi and Ellen Mason. 

BOLD PUNCHY BRIGHTS

Nowhere is this bold and bright reemergence seen more than in the bright-on-bright, even neon-on-neon designs that graced the runways. We saw Bold Blocking as a new way of Power Dressing by combining intense colors with a modern take on 1980s power suiting.

 

Key Details: Pair these powerful colors with equally powerful silhouettes such as strong shoulders, authoritative pencil skirts, and wide-leg trousers. Many designers used unexpected materials, such as sequins, in their Bold Blocking for a hint of sparkle to further punch up your brights.

 

As Seen On: Dior, Versace, Sandro, Eudon Choi, and Gestuz
