Feb 27, 2014 >> G&F Style: One Sweater, Four Destinations
That’s it. We’ve had enough. We’re getting up and getting out this issue. Knowing what to pack for a winter getaway is essential—overpacking and underpacking can definitely put a damper on travels. And let’s face it, we all want to look cute and put together in our new locale. We loved the girly-hue of this basic Zara knit (and pastels are totally on trend!) that can easily be transformed by accessories into a perfect look to channel four winter destinations. Staying put this season? The four looks below are just the thing to emanate vacation bliss even if you’re hanging local.
THE SWEATER: CROPPED SWEATER, $29.50, AT ZARA.
Stay sophisticated in the wild Rocky Mountains of Colorado with a classic pair of aviators and statement jewels. Think about channeling Aspen’s dazzling mix of culture and natural beauty. Extra points for après-ski lipstick touch-up!
LOCATION: Lake Geneva
A day of antiquing from Chicago to Lake Geneva calls for practical and comfy attire. Stay stylish with great accessories like a striped tote to store your new found treasures, a slouchy beanie and polished watch. Don’t work too hard—this look transitions from antique store to local bar with ease.
LOCATION: New Hampshire
The Mount Washington Hotel in New Hampshire is all about staying cozy. No need to forfeit your sartorial spirit to enjoy the great outdoors (or at least pretend to while getting ready for the hotel’s epic cocktail hour). But if you are outdoorsy, a cool backpack is quintessential adventurer gear. Layer up and take a hike!
LOCATION: Lincoln Square, Chicago
City Escape! Stick to your cosmopolitan roots and explore a new neighborhood. We love all the idiosyncrasies in every nook and cranny of this ‘hood—from the German halls to Amy’s Candy Bar to Ash’s magic shop—there is so much to explore.
