Figuring out what to wear during Summer months can be a struggle. Too much and you’ll melt inside the garment, and too little and you might feel overexposed. You also want to reveal your personal style and personality without going overboard, but did I mention the heat? Living in tropical areas for years has taught me a lesson or two about styling expressive outfits that are still fresh and wearable. Throughout this post, I’ll share four looks that are both vintage-inspired and incredibly comfortable.
White and pastels are an infallible color combination that keeps things simple but elegant. Wear your favorite white shorts with an open-back pastel top like this lilac lace halter from Tobi.
Artisanal garments remind us of the fascinating little handmade shops we run into when we travel. I paired high-rise denim shorts with this stunning black crochet crop top. Since the crochet allows for air to flow, you’ll never find a fresher piece to stroll around the city!
50s Pool Gal
I am of the opinion that women in the 1950s were the first to make swimming truly fashionable. To create that 50s girl vibe, I chose this serenity blue monokini with strong geometric accents and interesting diagonals. I paired it with oversized plastic round sunglasses by Polette to seal the retro look.
Modern Colonial Romance
I’ll admit it: I am a hopeless romantic. I can’t tell when it started for sure, but I know every time I visit a colonial city like Cartagena (pictured) this damsel-in-distress persona immediately pops out. This impeccable bell sleeve top makes you feel well-dressed and laid back at the same time. I combined it with khaki scrunchy shorts and my Palm earrings from the Nostalgiosity Tulum Collection.
