    Tropical vacations are wondrous for many reasons, but wearing minimal clothing is definitely at the top of the list. Reach for pieces in saturated colors, like an embroidered top and woven bag, and pair with embellished sandals, cat-eye glasses and a flirty bikini.

    There’s the ski wear and the après-ski outfit, not to mention loads of layers you’ll have to pack to keep you warm. Keep it focused with this lightweight but incredibly warm jacket from Aether (its a cozy layer that won’t make you look chunky), and throw in a pair of Fair Isle leggings, turquoise goggles, a pom pom hat, and bright boots.

    For days wandering around a new city, you need comfortable footwear and a versatile coat to take you from day to night.  A chic pajama top can do double duty as a blouse, and bright gloves and a camera strap will add a pop of color to neutral separates.

    Whether you are practicing yoga in Malibu or tracking lions in Tanzania, turn to earthy accessories like woven flats and a straw hat. An army green safari jacket can be worn by day over a white tee, or by night over an animal-print shirtdress.
