A trip to the beautiful Budva Riviera is easy to pack for. Think casual, think chic. The area is a closely guarded secret among the jet set and as a result, this quiet gem on the Adriatic coast calls for laid back elegance.
We’ve created a packing list based on the latest releases from some of our favorite designers and we have all your bases covered. You’ll find exactly what to wear while travelling so you can arrive in style, to achieving relaxed evening elegance.
Enjoy discovering the newly launched ‘Between Rivers’ label and our favorite piece from a special design collaboration that marks the 30th anniversary of Oliver Peoples sunglasses.
Whether you’re headed for the Mediterranean or the Meatpacking district, you’ll need to strike the balance between super-chic and comfortable for the trip there. Karen Millen has nailed it with this elegant Pussy-Bow Frill Shirt and jeans cropped at the ankle, allowing you to finish this look with a pair of statement heels.
We’re of the opinion that life shouldn’t be taken too seriously and neither should your choice of sunglasses. Gucci’s on board with this theory, as so delightfully shown in its Spring 2017 eyewear collection. Pink and glittery sunglasses in a classic rounded shape will bring a summery sparkle to your casual daywear. Pack them, pout and pose!
Coster Copenhagen’s Spring 2017 brings an air of refined style to your travel wardrobe. We always have room in our suitcases for a top that doesn’t require pressing, and one that’s on-trend as much as this piece is a must-have. A high neck and cropped sleeves give a demure element to this cleverly designed top – layer underneath as much or as little as you dare!
The Resort 2018 range from Zuhair Murad has gifted us with pretty pastel dresses featuring delicate lace. These pieces are perfect for warm summer soirees that call for elegant casual. Thigh skimming hemlines are balanced with long sleeves and the dresses are drawn in at the waist to create a pretty and feminine silhouette.
Every suitcase should contain a dazzling evening option and we’ve selected this gown from Mira La Marela as it won’t overwhelm but it will stand out. A casually cut v-neck top with capped sleeves gives a relaxed feel to this dress while its floor sweeping lined skirt gives a flash of color and movement to the piece. Upgrade your look with a pair of heeled sandals or keep things low key with a pair of flats.
We love it when luxury meets casual and that’s exactly what happened when Arthur Kulkov launched his designer brand ‘Between Rivers’ earlier this year. The label’s first collection is chic, masculine and exactly the look we love for yachting holidays. Slip into tailored trouser and t-shirt combinations in flattering colors completed with Oxfords in caramel suede.
Made from calf leather, the Bethan range from Bally features an easy piece of carry-on luggage that fits your most important items without bulging and losing its shape. The Swiss designer really has thought of everything, including a detachable shoulder strap and an organized interior. What we love most is this bag is from a range that comprises rolling luggage, backpacks and more.
Even while on vacation there are days where you just want to slip into something more comfortable and still exude casual elegance. Dunhill has created the ultimate sweater for just that. Made from exceptionally soft cotton, this lightweight sweatshirt is a sporting classic that should never be too far from reach.
When we heard Oliver Peoples had collaborated with Alain Mikli to create a colorful capsule collection of sunglasses we couldn’t wait to get our hands on a pair. Alain Mikli is loved the world over for its unique and vivid designs, while Oliver Peoples uses the finest materials and has an enviable design aesthetic. These are sunglasses worth a wait list.
