Summer and the City: 5 Ways to Style Resortwear in the Metropolis

These past months might have drastically changed your vacation plans. While it may seem impossible, for now, to go on a holiday trip, there’s no reason for you not to wear something light and fresh this season. Take note of these ways to fully maximize your summer wardrobe even when you’re not on vacation.

Missing your annual beach trips to Instagram-worthy places? Don’t worry; you’re just among those who halted their vacation plans due to the worldwide pandemic. There are indeed no rules when it comes to wearing florals (case in point: our Valentina Dress) for your grocery run, and we’re here to prove that beachwear can work its way to the bustling cityscape. In fact, you can perfect the vacation look sans requiring an actual beach or pool. 

There’s plenty of ways to bring the holiday vibes wherever you go. From your virtual meetings to quick catch-ups with old friends, we’ve got ideas on how to wear vacation-inspired outfits to the city where you spend most of your time. Prepare to slay the season with these beach-ready ensembles that you can definitely wear as you make your way into the metropolis.

Shopping in Fashionable Florals

Blisse Dress Alisse Dress

The thing about florals is that they are versatile enough to be worn at any season. They’re prominent in spring, but these fresh-looking prints are worthy of your attention as well during summer. The Blisse Dress, for example, comes with ruffled sleeves and a cinched waist for a flattering silhouette. It’s an ideal piece for your errands. Wear it with white sneakers for all-day comfort as you run from one store to another.

If you feel like showing some skin while picking up items to store in your pantry, then our Alisse Dress can work for you. The beautiful floral prints are too gorgeous not to be worn in public. Plus, the flowy silhouette gives you enough space to move around without being uncomfortable. Finish off the laid-back look with a pair of neutral strappy sandals and a simple round necklace. Have a stylish cover-up ready in case it gets too cold with the AC on while waiting in line at the grocery store.

Out and About in Lightweight Linen

Naturale Pants Classic Linen Crop

When you’re outside and the temperature is rising, all you want to do is throw on the most comfortable clothes you have. What you should have in mind are linen-made garments to last you throughout the hot season. Start with our Naturale Pants that work perfectly as your next go-to office pants. They’re designed with a high-rise cut and a loose silhouette to elongate your legs. Tuck in a white collared top like this Cannes Shirt and slip into sleek stilettos for an ultrachic office look. 


For a morning walk with your dog, you can always opt for a Classic Linen Crop top that matches well with our Agnes Shorts. The blouse is a classic staple anyone should have in their closet, while the olive green bottoms are interesting enough to be experimented with. Whether you go for sneakers or flats, you’ll enjoy strutting in style with your furry friend. Don’t forget to lather some sunscreen to protect your skin from the harmful UV rays!

Eating Out in Stylish Separates

Al fresco dining is making waves these days. Meaning, it’s advisable to wear summer-appropriate pieces that make you feel relaxed no matter where you’re eating. Stay elegant with our Drop Shoulder Top that features thin straps and billowy sleeves for ease of movement as you meet your friends for lunch. Complete your outfit with chic Satin Cropped Pants that radiate femininity from all angles. Walk in ankle strap heels and bring a chain bag to house all your essentials.

For a romantic dinner date with your significant other, go for a breezy top like this Estee Linen Top. The tie-up straps make it a charming piece you should own when you’re feeling dainty on a date. We suggest you pair this with our Estee Linen Pants for a minimalist look. Choose between tassel earrings and a shiny diamond necklace to accessorize your ensemble. Top it all off with a soft lip color.

Formal Affairs in Divine Dresses

It’s a figure-flattering number that has a stunning V-neckline and a front slit to highlight your legs. Wear it with heeled sandals and layered necklaces to wow the spectators at an event with a formal dress code. 

Attending an outdoor wedding is common, so you may want to look extraordinary to spice things up. Go for our Grace Midi Dress with a sultry neckline and tiered hem with a modest front slit. The vibrancy of sage makes it a sartorial option for a summer wedding. Invest in gold strappy heels matched with gold earrings and a statement ring to turn heads as you join the celebration of the newlyweds.

To ace a business function look, style our Elle Dress with a belt to cinch your waist. Add a sleek blazer and black pumps for a more formal feel. Carry a leather envelope handbag to shy away from the usual shoulder bag.
