#BuroGetaway: 8 Staples for a chic OOTD


If you’re on a #girlsquad vacation, bring along a swimsuit that you can wear with your BFFs for a suntan sesh. This simple black one-piece from Wanderlust + Co’s Girlgang‘s capsule collection is perfect for the onslaught of #wefies from your weekend vacay.

Remember to pack on a pair of sandals for poolside-tanning sessions, such as these pair of utterly chic Loewe leather sandals that are crafted in Italy. Laid-back summer appeal has never been this easy—we’re loving its cool blue gradient hues and modern silhouette. 

For evenings that require a dressier ensemble, this dress from DKNY’s SS17 collection is the stylish yet feminine ensemble that you need. The subtly flared skirt makes for a flattering silhouette as well. 

A tropical touch courtesy from a turquoise embroidered straw clutch from Serpui is what you need for evening occasions. Its intricate floral embroidered design will be complement to your #ootd to a tee.

Another mandatory accessory to chuck in your bag is a pair of chic sunglasses. Take on Victoria Beckham’s Cut Away Kitten sunglasses for a retro, marble-inspired aesthetic that’s flirty yet versatile for your sundress or even a pair of boyfriend jeans.

A romper is a must-have for any summer holiday—it saves you from worrying over separates that you have to mix and match (not to mention, pack). This leopard-print playsuit from Stella McCartney is a great option for you to wear over your bikini or even if you’re about to sightsee in the balmy weather. 

Punchy, summer-worthy colours are what we obsess over this time of the year, and Givenchy’s latest Duetto bag has caught our eyes for that exact reason. An ideal-sized crossbody bag that’s available in a plethora of colours, it’s the perfect size for you to transition from day to night.

Shade your face from the sun’s harmful rays with Melissa Odabash’s grosgrain-trimmed fedora made from woven, lightweight paper.

Pack on a silk scarf for that effortlessly chic look for fancier evening events. This Salvatore Ferragamo scarf has an all-over tropical print featuring flora and fauna that will definitely not go wrong with your summer-appropriate getup.
