Take Me BLACK to Vacation

  1. Just because it’s summer doesn’t mean you are banned from wearing black. Black never goes out of style and it’s the most universally flattering. There’s never a season where black can’t be worn.

Need a perfect traveling and vacation outfit that works for day or night? This outfit combination is comfortable, yet fashionable for on or off the resort. With school still out for the summer, families and singles are having more free time for vacation. The best outfits for traveling are the ones that serve as multi-purpose outfits. Vacation outfits should scream “I look good and feel good too,” meaning having a flattering outfit that feels good to the skin.

This black jumpsuit from People Tree is made out of organic cotton, making it perfect for traveling. Cotton is a good fabric to wear while heading to your destination due to it’s breathability and comfort. The outfit combination works well because even though it is as comfortable as sweats, it’s fashionable enough to immediately go out in. Whether you are going to the beach, bar, shopping, or lounging these black leather ribbon sandals from Sseko Designs are a more than a suitable combination for a black outfit.

When it comes to accessories for this resort ‘fit no other jewelry brands come to mind than Akola Jewelry and Ethical Stories Ethical Me. The Akola Jewelry is an amazing brand because 100% of their sales go towards empowering women throughout the globe. Both the earrings and bracelets from Akola Jewelry use 18k gold. The Nile Black and White Earring and the two bracelets have white bone beads that remind us of the beach.

Ethical Stories Ethical Me is incredible because each piece has a story to tell. The Obsidian Lozano Ring was created in Honduras to empower women and prevent prostitution.
