How to Make Your Next Vacation Your Most Stylish Yet

We're only a few days into January, and chances are you're just trying to make it through winter right now—but if you've found yourself day-dreaming or perhaps even planning (lucky gal!) a mid-January tropical getaway, then you're likely thinking about what you'd want to wear. I was lucky enough to take such a trip in December, to ClubMed's amazing resort in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic—and I can attest personally that what you wear makes a big difference.

On this particular trip, I had a lot of activities planned for me to celebrate the opening of ClubMed's ultra-fab new Zen Oasis space: cocktail hours, dinners, boating excursions, yoga, and dance parties were all on the itinerary. As I went to pack my suitcase, I was kind of at a loss; with daytime temperatures as high as 85 degrees, and nighttime temps falling into the 60s, I felt like I didn't really have enough clothes to suit each activity I was obligated to attend.

I ended up making it all work, but I want to do my best to help you avoid finding yourself in a similar pickle. I thought a list of stylish pieces to wear for each of the standard vacation events would be helpful—and there's no better collection to turn to than Resort 2016, with a fabulous array of offerings from every designer label: Proenza Schouler, Altuzarra, Tibi, and more!
