Great es­cape

Re­sort pieces are the per­fect in­vest­ment for trans-sea­sonal dress­ing

Weekend Herald - Canvas - - CONTENTS - DAN AHWA

It may seem in­con­gru­ous for re­tail­ers to be on sale al­ready, mak­ing way for next week’s first drop of spring de­liv­er­ies, but there you have it. Such is the cy­cle of fash­ion these days you’d be for­given for feel­ing non­plussed as to what to buy let alone wear. Take into ac­count global warm­ing, and you’ll find a large per­cent­age of what to buy now is fo­cused around trans-sea­sonal sep­a­rates that are warm enough for mild win­ters and light enough for balmy sum­mers. Af­ter all, this is where de­sign­ers are now make the bulk of their sales dur­ing the year; such of­fer­ings more ap­peal­ing when your mo­ti­va­tion for buying clothes cen­tres on the prac­ti­cal­ity of cost-per-wear. If you’re think­ing of es­cap­ing to the Pa­cific or the North­ern Hemi­sphere sum­mer, pack light with these easy re­sort sug­ges­tions, in­clud­ing floaty skirts, crisp white sep­a­rates and the ubiq­ui­tous peas­ant top. Don’t for­get to throw on this year’s sun­glasses of choice — a tinted avi­a­tor style that will im­me­di­ately put you in the right frame of mind: off-duty, sun­downer in hand and with your out-of-of­fice email turned on.
