When I think of a island vacation, I frequently think of comfortable skirts or summer dresses. I love finding great ways to incorporate vintage island style clothing into my perfect vacation and here are a few of my island vacation must haves.
First, you have to bring a peasant skirt. These tiered skirts are perfect because they are dressy enough to be worn from day to night and work perfectly with flip flops or sandals. They also can work with a variety of different style tops or tank tops. This versatility when combined with the comfort of the peasant skirt puts it at the top of our must have list. Consider as an example the Hilton Peasant skirt by designer Velvet by Graham and Spencer.
The Modal Jersey Scoop Neck Dress by designer Splendid is a wonderful example of another versatile piece that can be dressed up or down depending on the event you need to wear it to. This dress is currently available at Vintage Fringe in Mud, a taupe brown color, or Black. The dress features a simple style with a ruffle for added detail around the tank sleeves and neckline. It is a loose style and can be made more fitted when paired with a belt for alternate looks. This dress is the ultimate comfort dress with a great modal jersey fabric that feels s so luxurious on and with the loose fit makes it a wonderfully wearable dress.
Another great vacation piece is the Sintia Pencil Skirt by designer Velvet by Graham and Spencer. This skirt certainly wins the award for being the most versatile as you can truly wear this skirt with flip flops or heels and dress it up or down depending on the occasion. Not to mention that finding a comfortable pencil skirt can be seemingly impossible some times. This skirt features an elegant pencil skirt style and a wide waist band that is not constrictive or uncomfortable and gives you the option to position the skirt at whatever level you prefer in terms of high or low waists. It is also available in a variety of great colors like grey, brown, navy, black and light green.
Finally, the other component of island vacation clothing is pattern. We also love great tanks like the Hi-Lo Tank Top or the Sleeveless Tie Tank both by designer Sweet Pea by Stacy Frati. Sweet Pea’s creative and bold use of patterns makes these tanks great stylish pieces that are both comfortable and classy, but also vibrant and exciting pieces to incorporate into your closet. Each of these tanks are great pieces that can be worn for dressier vacation events like dinners out or parties and can also double as great casual tops by day.
As you can see there are a number of great options for vintage island style clothing and no matter what your own personal preferences, you can use these suggestions for ideas on how you can find modern day pieces to incorporate vintage styles while also finding pieces that work well for your own versatile needs.
