INSPIRATION AND ADVICE

HOW WE DO VACAY STYLE

April 27, 2019

It’s officially time to get hype about some time off, whether it’s sun-drenched beaches or a super-chill staycation. For some OOO inspiration, we thought we’d take a look at how the guys at ASOS are checking into vacation mode.

Does anything say "summer" more than a tie-dye T-shirt? We doubt it, and with the hippy/ravehead uniform of choice making a massive comeback for SS19, a washed-out T-shirt like Junior Designer Seb's is a good place to start. Even the print on the back conjures up mental images of taming the surf on faraway beaches (sigh). If office-appropriate beachwear isn't a look by now, Seb's nailed the would-be trend with those side-stripe pants and chunky Nike kicks. Excellent work.

Looks like we may have been too hasty with our "what’s more summer than" assessment above. Turns out a bold, short-sleeve shirt also radiates serious sunny vibes. If you're planning on branching out from the classic plain, striped and floral pieces, make like Mailroom Assistant Mal and keep it low-key down below. Those dark blue skinny jeans and Reebok Classics should do the trick. This look's got "nice sunset meal and a few drinks" written all over it.

Going on a wild week away? Forget your spirit animal — it’s all about your external beast for SS19. Safari-esque motifs are your summer prints of choice. Nic, our Creative Editor, has chosen to take a walk on the wild side (sorry) with a pair of Chuck 70s, complete with an eye-popping leopard print. Nic’s less-is-more lesson is an ideal example of how to wear bolder sneakers, not to mention potentially nailing a ridiculously comfy look. We’re roaring with approval.

Vacations are the perfect chance to experiment with bolder style choices. With pastels and washed-out hues sitting alongside neon as the SS19 color palette, some statement pants are a great way to break into the vibe. The above pants might be considered a bit advanced for the Tuesday night happy hour, but on vacay, this look's virtually mandatory. Junior Fashion Editor Warren has made them the focal point of his look by opting for a fresh white tee up top. If you've got some fancier plans on your travels, a pair of loafers instantly smartens it up.
