Winter is officially here and so sets in the annual S.A.D. No, not the tear-inducing, ice cream-binging kind of sad because everyone on your newsfeed is getting engaged and you’re at home becoming one with your sofa aka the closest thing in your life to a real relationship. Not that… We’re talking about Seasonal Affective Disorder – a mood disorder subset in which people who have normal mental health throughout most of the year exhibit depressive symptoms at the same time each year, most commonly in the winter. Sound familiar?
Fear not, little snowman. We are bringing the sunshine to you with some shopping inspiration for your next getaway. Whether you’re vacationing virtually or are lucky enough to escape the cold #IRL, make sure you’re packing the essentials. Shop the edit below, and stay warm.
The On-Trend Eyewear
Hands down, this is the sunglass style we’re seeing everywhere. From the street style set to our favorite celebrities, the retro-meets-90s-minimalist trend is universally flattering and equally chic. Adam Selman x Le Specs created our perfect pair in optic white. The Lolita inspired shades will keep you cool in the Caribbean breeze.
The Swimwear Update
A stylish one-piece should be the one piece in your holiday wardrobe arsenal. The simple swimwear does double duty; poolside glam for daytime and slip under a wrap skirt for a night of barefoot dancing. Look to brands like Marysia and Ganni, who have updated the classic silhouette with fun prints and funky trimmings.
The *Perfect* Hat
Finding the perfect sun hat often feels like searching for a needle in a haystack. Cue Sensi Studio, founded by Tomas Maier alum Stephanie Sensi. The panama-style hats are handmade in Ecuador in the traditional toquilla style. Our favorite provides just the right amount of coverage with room for style shades to peek out from beneath. The cherry-top accoutrement is the hat’s wide-brim sash in of-the-moment tangerine. Grab one while there’s still stock.
