or wardrobe transition

These pieces from The Grey Colt in Hudson are perfect for layering or mixing as the weather warms. Think Tank”s floral cotton skirt and Vineyard Vines” patterned pant will be your resort go-tos! Dolce Vita sandals complete the look.


For a fresh, contemporary look, Sanity in Chagrin Falls offers these pieces for a cool, quick bite to eat — beach or poolside, or for cocktails at sunset on ship deck. Stand out with the turquoise beaded necklace and an assortment of bangle and cuff bracelets, also available at Sanity. Anon sunglasses and Dezario”s red and black patent wedge finish the look.

Remember when, not so long ago, cruise and resort wear was limited to those fortunate enough to escape the brutal, harsh winters of Northeast Ohio? Well, "the times they are a changin”." In fact, resort wear has become an important and extensive collection for designers, remaining on the selling floor longer than fall fashion according to “InStyle.” Although resort and cruise wear bring to mind sunny beaches and blue Caribbean seas and skies, this is a collection that can also transition a fall/winter wardrobe easily to spring/summer.
Whether you plan to travel or update for spring, choose lightweight fabrics that can be layered and mixed such as cotton, silk, jersey knit and denim. A little cotton blend cardigan like Think Tank”s is the perfect piece to layer over a simple Neesh cotton top or a beautifully embellished jersey knit dress. Mix it with a cotton floral skirt or a fun, colorful printed "Jackie" pant for day, all from the Grey Colt.
Lightweight fabrics also make packing easy. Roll garments up instead of folding and you will find you have more room in your suitcase. Lafayette”s collection of silk, cotton and leather from Lisa Moran will take a gal from day to evening with just the right shoes and accessories. Dress up with Lafayette”s pearl leather jacket and wear a snappy metallic wedge with the dress.
Of course there is always denim. I like to call it the universal fabric. It works for every season and just about every look. James Jeans” clam digger denim pant strikes the perfect balance with Free People”s cotton crocheted dress or a Maj banded tube top from Sanity. A vintage tuxedo jacket over the tube top would make this look seasonless. For nighttime, style the pant with a coral knit top with leather braiding and accessorize with a fabulous large cuff or bangles at the wrist.
Besides versatility, there is the notion of color. Resort is the perfect time to infuse a little color into your wardrobe. Have fun with color and prints. Whether you choose a colorful dress or top, don”t pile on the color. Contrast it against neutrals or black such as a Cartise yellow and black floral top with Sharagano”s black ankle pant or Joseph Ribkoff”s multi-colored dress with solid top, all from Bonnie’s Goubaud. Play with colorful accessories. Maxx”s straw lavender bag is a nice alternative to the basic black bag and makes for more interest.
Versatile and seasonless, resort wear should be fun, colorful and practical. It”s clothing that works for you no matter what your destination may be. Be smart and choose wisely.

These fashion-forward pieces from Lisa Moran at Eton Chagrin Boulevard pack easily. Accessorize with Staxx interchangeable rings and an open toe suede slingback or metallic slide. Sunglasses by Anon.
