The weather in New York is insufferable. To manage with the sub-arctic temperatures we have been playing Havana by Camila Cabello on repeat. The next order of business is to shop for blue skies, warm water and white sand.
Yes, it’s the vacation edit!
We found that Intermix still has a lot of great items left from last Summer. Here is great a Frame split front denim skirt that’s reduced to $90 from $210, this Jonathan Simkhai bustier is $120 from $300 and a Dodo Bar Or embroidered mini skirt is $150 from $410.
Barneys sale is quite good to begin with but the 20% off promotion brings the discounts on many items to 80%. Here is a Guns ‘n Roses concert tee from Anderson Bell that comes to $23 from $95, this frayed denim dress is about $130 from $550, Mira Mikati hand-painted denim shorts are about $120 from $490.
The problem with shopping last season’s sale items is that sizes are limited. If you aren’t up for the challenge of finding your size, we suggest you scope out Asos. We love the variety of Gingham bikinis that start at just $16. Over this way is an open-back tank with crochet detailing that’s $60. We are absolutely crazy for Cynthia Rowley’s wetsuit that’s $283. Here are wide-leg beach pants for $40, a striped romper is $35 and this bandeau top jumpsuit is $127.
Perhaps a new sun hat can warm that bone-chilling freeze? Revolve has a bunch on sale. Here is a colorful straw hat that’s $99 from $132, a Havana hat is just $58 and the ‘Rebel’ hat from Eugenia Kim is reduced to $187 from $455.
Before heading out to the sun you will need a new pair of sunnies to protect your peepers. These Le Specs are kinda awesome and reduced to $75 from $125, Fendi mirrored cutouts are $256 from $550 and oversized Chloe glasses are $236 from $400. As a matter of fact, Neiman Marcus has an exceptional assortment of discounted designer glasses.
If you don’t already have a plan to get out of dodge (read: the frozen weather), just remember it won’t last forever. The Hudson River should be ice-free by May. It’s never too early to practice bikini optimism.
