Travel Essentials for Summer and Tropical Getaways

thailand-beach-toms-sunglasses

With summer travel planning in mind, there are a few things you should always have in your wardrobe and accessories collection to be ready for the season ahead and for any last minute tropical getaways. I recently traveled to Thailand and had to pack for high 80s and 90 degree, humid weather. Knowing I’d be in the lush tropics of beach towns like Krabi and Khao Lak I packed a range of short sleeved tops, shorts, swimwear and sunnies.

Outfit: How To Add Color Blocking To Your Work Style

color-block-accessories-winter-bag-briefcase

Spruce up your work style this winter by adding a little color blocking to your look. If you haven’t ventured into this trend yet, no better time than the present. Shot before the holidays, I styled Vee Travels blog model James to show you how effortlessly it can be done.

I love accessories, no question about that, and when I saw this Coach commuter bag I knew it was perfect this service-y post for guys who haven’t color blocked yet. Using the typical khaki slacks and a striped button down shirt look, I used the color scheme of the bag to add on the rest of the look.

Outfit: Styling to Explore Rural Quito, Ecuador

exploring-rural-quito-1

Exploring Ecuador just before Thanksgiving with the Ministry of Tourism, I had a chance to visit the capital, Quito, and the rural outskirts such as the Pululahua Crater (a volcano that has been dormant for 3,000 years and just under an hour away from central) and the nearby Ciudad Mitad del Mundo (a historical and cultural site that is set on the equator). Quito is a city where layering and versatility are key, and was the same for these northern areas.

Get The Look: Autumn Leather In Central Park & MR PORTER ‘s Global Style Campaign

20131103-153903.jpg

While a leather jacket can look good almost anytime of the year, brown leather shines like no other when surrounded by November’s colorful foliage in New York’s Central Park. I styled my favorite vintage leather jacket with other shades of brown. A classic pair of tan J.Crew cotton-twill chinos contrast the dark brown jacket in a smart manner, and fall styling calls for a pair of rugged boots. This simple pair from Grenson adds a stylish body to the classic derby boot with a scotch grain leather.

To break the brown hues, and standout one it’s own, a rich burgundy crew neck sweater is a wardrobe essential (as the color can look good year-round), and to top off the look on a sunny day, can’t go wrong with Ray-Ban aviators.

Get The Look:

Jacket: Vintage (similar from Belstaff)
Sweater: Banana Republic Blended Sweater (similar from J.Crew)
Pants: J.Crew Cotton-Twill Chinos
Footwear: Grenson Hadley derby boot
Sunglasses: Ray-Ban Aviators (similar from Ray-Ban)
