ladies! As fashion week is in full swing, let us take a quick break from
the runway and fashion show frenzy for today’s What to Wear request.

As you didn’t mention your destination, I’m
going to assume that you will be heading somewhere tropical for your
upcoming trip with your boo. Seeing as this is a romantic getaway,
today’s style suggestions are full of flirty maxi dresses, stylish bathing suit options, and bold statement making accents. Let’s dive in to your first look…
Dress down a green wrap front maxi dress with a pair of purple and gold flat sandals and a stylish Michael Kors Jet Set Travel leather tote in a teal hue.
Work in a few gilded pieces including a double
bar gold-tone necklace and a pair of stud hoop earrings. Lastly, throw a
printed two-piece and stylish aviator shades into your tote for the
moment your ready to take a dip and take in a few rays.
For look #2, opt for a white one piece with a plunging neckline accented by an asymmetric twist skirt and gold Tory Burch Brooke flat sandals.
Highlight this sultry beach look with a crystal gold tassel necklace and beaded chandelier earrings. With a stylish fedora, Oscar de la Renta metal frame sunglasses, and a vivid red lip you’ll be ready to hit the deck or the sand in style.
For your final wardrobe option, be sure to pack a chic maxi dress
in a fun and flirty print that works just as perfectly as a daytime
look as it does dressed up for an evening outing (this particular dress
is no longer available, find a similar style here). For a little daytime fun in the sun, play up the color palette with a pair of Steve Madden Hamil flat sandals, a Rachel Zoe straw brim sun hat, a striped beach tote, and Bottega Veneta Intreciatto square-frame shades.
Take this look from day to night by slipping into a pair of sleek and sexy jeweled Giuseppe Zanotti sandals and swapping your tote for a sleek leather clutch like this Marc Jacobs East End Quilted Lady Rei option. Add a bit of pizzazz with sparkly chandelier earrings and gold crystal bangles for the finishing touch.
