Trip time is upon us…and thank goodness! After surviving the dreary winter weather, it is time to pack up some fabulousness and get to traveling! Whether jetting off to a tropical destination or driving down to a family favorite-location, e.Allen has been hard at work stocking up on looks that will suit any size, any age, and any budget.
The list of must-haves for traveling is endless. We could honestly give you a lengthy run down of items to stow away in that carry on that runs a mile long; however, we have whittled it down to a few items that are sure to please our customers AND help you feel vacay-ready in no time.
- THE STRAW BAG – Effortless and oh-so chic. Straw bags are no longer just made for carrying sun tan lotion and beach towels. Designers are loving integrating these relaxed, yet geometric, purses into their spring and summer collections. Be it oversized and overstated or tiny and tailored, each straw bag can add a natural element to the overall texture of any outfit. Large, rectangular handbags along with round crossbody options are unstuck and ready for you.
- THE BUTTON UP – Whether tied up or tucked in, button ups have made a huge comeback for this season. This classic piece is such a addition to any closet, as well as a packing staple. From prints to classic neutrals, we have so many in all three of our locations. The texture and lengths vary so trying a variety of them on and getting a complete ensemble pulled together is sure to increase the size of your capsule wardrobe and elevate your style. Rails, Bella Dahl, and French Connection are great brand options for this look. Call any of our e.Allen stores and have one of our top notch stylists pull some for you so they are waiting upon your arrival!
- THE PACKABLE DRESS – Every color underneath the rainbow and in every shape imaginable, dresses abound this fashion season! Regardless of where you are going, a dress that you love MUST be going with you. At market, bold hues and comfortable textures filled up the racks with so many options for buyers to get home to their customers. Elizabeth and Megan did a remarkable job of pulling favorites to suit all three location’s clientele. Tied shirt dresses are great options for travel purposes. Styled with our elevated, open-toed mules or a great espadrille, these easy dresses are great for any body type. Another good dress option is a gauzy peasant number. Loose and fancy free is obviously a great vacation vibe and these dresses fit that bill to a tee. Show Me Your Mumu and Free People are two of our favorite brands that specialize in these styles.
So….get to it! Come shop and get prepared to be the most fashionable traveler wherever your heart is leading you. Regardless of where you are going, we can help you get into some great looks that travel well and ones that will last and be easily worn at home upon your return!
