Get Away in Style with our SS ’16 Recommendations

4 years ago

In January, we covered 2016’s Top Travel Destinations courtesy Divia Thani Daswani of Conde Nast Traveller India. Assuming your vacation tickets are booked, there is no better time to seize the moment and officially welcome your summer wardrobe back into the mix (Read: bare arms, carefree dresses, an open-toe shoes). To help you on your way, we’ve narrowed it down to 3 probable getaways you’re likely to take, along with Le Mill’s curated pieces to get the ball rolling.


The Water

Even if you love to be extremely put together, a beach vacation calls for relaxing the rules a bit. This goes for fans of a monochromatic palette too – we say ditch the all black/ all white, and wear a dress that’s going to enhance your acquired bronzed glow. Tropical prints from Mary Katrantzou and Christopher Kane are at the top of our summer hit-list.


The Mountains

Everything we said about showing skin obviously doesn’t apply if you’re taking off for the hills. That said, bundling up for a hike and hot cocoa is the ultimate beat-the-heat retreat. Depending on the level of activity you’re planning, we’ve got 3 options: a Christopher Kane shirt dress for dinner with friends, Raquel Allegra’s oversized blouse for some cabin alone-time, and wide leg trousers by Alexander Wang for when you need to stretch your muscles.

The City

Beautifully built cities are a joy to discover – and a lovely way to forget your own for a little while. Our choices verge on the practical because while navigating amidst traffic, cobblestone and fellow tourists, you need to be at your slickest. Stella McCartney and the Olsen twins of The Row are big city women who understand and design for aesthetics and utility equally. Remember to pack a few glam pieces and a killer pair of heels – no great city goes to sleep early and neither should you!
