Tahiti, French Polynesia

French Polynesia


For lovers of the sea, Tahiti has proven to be the ultimate summer escape. It’s known for beautiful black and white sand beaches, overwater bungalows, and vibrant marine life. Go snorkeling and boating, hike through lush landscapes, and indulge in local gastronomy full of fresh and flavorful tropical dishes. Take your trip up a notch by going on a multi-island hopping escapade to paradises like Bora Bora, Moorea, and our personal favorite, Huahine.

What to Wear

A scenic place like Tahiti deserves to be matched with some drama. Embrace floor-grazing lengths and billowy silhouettes full of volume. Pieces like tube tops and kaftans are always welcome, too, to do double duty as both cover-ups over your swimwear and as wearable day-to-night pieces. 


Florence, Italy

Florence Italy

Fulfill your wanderlust in the city of Florence. Located in Tuscany, it’s an idyllic refuge home to 

rich cultural heritage. Find stunning Renaissance architecture, explore iconic museums, and go sightseeing to historical landmarks. Dine al fresco in local trattorias in the city or venture out on a day trip to the Tuscan countryside to visit medieval towns like Monteriggioni, Siena, and San Gimignano for wine tastings. 

What to Wear

Comfortable separates are your best bets for exploring in the daytime. Look for breathable fabrics like linen, cotton, rayon, or even silk to make sure you keep cool under the sun. In the evening, incorporate some understated glamour via flowing bias-cut slip dresses and other classic options to match the vintage appeal of the destination. 

Cartagena, Colombia



Cartagena is an energetic city that should be on every traveler’s bucket list. The walled “Old City” is a UNESCO World Heritage site brimming with history famed for its well-preserved colorful colonial architecture, cobblestone streets, and lively plazas. Come sundown, see its spirited nightlife for yourself by exploring the Getsemani neighborhood known for great bars and nightclubs, even street performances where you’ll witness traditional dances and music. Plus, Cartagena is home to the best chefs in the world so you can guarantee that your inner foodie will be satisfied with plenty of amazing dining options. 

What to Wear

Let yourself be immersed in Cartagena’s infectious energy by enlisting bright colors and playful prints for your vacation wardrobe. Move confidently all day in versatile jumpsuits and rompers that transition smoothly to the evening and offer plenty of style mileage, whether alongside light layers or just layered jewelry. 


Kyoto, Japan

Kyoto Khush


Kyoto is the perfect destination for adventurers and nature lovers at heart. Summer is festival season and packed with celebrations. Bear witness to the city’s biggest annual event in July—Gion Matsuri—which is a lively block party featuring traditional performances and float parades. Slow down by strolling through Kyoto’s famous meticulously-maintained gardens and visit nearby temples that boast beautiful Japanese architecture. Deep dive further into its culture by participating in tea ceremonies or taking a walk through the geisha district of Hanamikoji. To cap off a true sightseeing escapade, go on a scenic boat cruise on the Hozu River for breathtaking views.  

What to Wear

Kyoto can be especially hot and humid in the summer. Opt for a casual yet refined approach with breezy linen sets, flowing skirts and sundresses, wide-legged pants, and comfortable flats or sneakers as you tour the city. It’s important to consider modesty when visiting religious sites too so make sure you have light layers ready or go for sleeved below-knee pieces. 


Corfu, Greece



What’s summer without Greece in mind? Corfu is a beloved destination but not as crowded as the usual hotspots like Mykonos and Santorini. It’s an island steeped in history with various medieval and ancient sites to explore, as well as some beautiful Venetian architecture. Its natural beauty is definitely a big tourist attraction, offering picturesque beaches and luscious greenery. You can even hike up to Mount Pantokrator—the highest peak on the island—and get a panoramic glimpse of Corfu and neighboring seas. By sunset, enjoy a lovely dinner at local tavernas or enjoy the city’s booming nightlife scene with strips of bars and even party hostels across every village. 

What to Wear

Show off your resort style on the island while keeping cool and comfortable by incorporating airy fabrics like macramé, knit, rayon, and mesh. Strapless minis will offer versatility and serve as wearable cover-ups over your swimwear, while tiered skirts and maxis will add a dash of drama and underscore your steps gracefully as you explore. Don’t forget to accessorize with raffia hats and tote bags!
