Style Essentials for City Summer Travel

summer-travel-style-tel-aviv-2-coach-mens-tote

While in Tel Aviv earlier this month, I stayed at the stylish and retro-chic Brown TLV boutique hotel for my first couple of nights in the heart of the city. Along with the hotel’s location and its vibes, my favorite other amenities include the 1970s-themed lobby (or ‘Living Room’), the hotel’s indoor-outdoor bar in the garden area, and rooftop deck where I figured it would be best to share some of my city summer travel style must-haves for this season.

Outfit: Summer to Fall Styling

summer-to-fall-style-fashion-week-1

While at New York Fashion Week I took advantage of free time I had to shoot a couple of outfits. First up, one to bring you from summer to fall.

Bold prints can be worn year round, but the end of summer is really the last chance you can make bright florals work with the upcoming elements (at least that’s true if you live in the north East Coast, since if you are Los Angeles and Miami you can wear the print all year round). I styled a blue floral-geo print short sleeve button down from Express with black accessories and a tee to contrast the shirt, but added a pair of cerulean blue slacks to balance the overall look. Along with my accessories like the Frank & Oak canvas and leather backpack and Kenneth Cole leather slip-on kicks, I also show the ultimate fashion week essential; a Mophie juice pack helium battery phone case in a metallic green. Seriously, I sadly would not have survived without from all the shows, events, and street style and backstage coverage I did while at NYFW. See more of the look below:

Must Have: Mixed-Media Military Duffle Backpack From Frank & Oak’s Watch Dogs Collection

frank-oak-watch-dogs-backpack-1

Frank & Oak has released a 12-piece capsule collection line in anticipation of video game Watch Dogs, a cool looking and highly anticipated hacker multi-online player video game . Taking inspiration from it and the stealth and functionality that you’ll need to have in the game , the collection features a “dark and mysterious near-future aesthetic.” Among the collection, which retails from $32-$115, is a sporty canvas and leather military duffle backpack that I think stands out from the rest for its modern and versatile appeal.

The rest of the collection is pretty cool too, and includes distressed v-neck pocket tees, printed denim shirts, waffle henley, black canvas pant, patterned sweater, and a French terry hoodie with raw and worn details and textures, plus crew neck tees and a baseball cap. See them below and watch the newest trailer for Watch Dogs after:

The best thing about business casual attire is the versatility it offers travelers. The look can be worn in transit and at your hosting office—which is perfect if you have a meeting right away when you land.

Wonderful for styling a business casual look, the Montreal-based e-commerce Frank & Oak offers an array of individual pieces that are perfect for fall (and any season really), and they design a new collection each month.

Shooting in the perfect foliage setting of New York’s Central Park, Vee Travels’ newest model, James, sports Frank & Oak’s slim fitting Huntsman’s Wool Blazer in the oak. Paired with a wine purple-colored button down, I topped off the two with a slim flannel plaid tie with the fall color scheme of navy, forest and honey.
