A-LIST: Tropical Treats

Whether venturing to sunny Florida, Puerto Rico, Cabo San Lucas, or staying home for this year’s holiday break, book a trip to the mall to get dibs on this season’s resort must-haves. New silhouettes, new colors, and new prints make you dream about a vacation even if you’re not going on one (plus it’s never to early to plan for spring break). Consider these pieces for your next tropical escape.

Dare to be different: A one-piece suit is sure to make a splash. Dive into this Anna & Boy deep V halter suit. The bow detail on the front adds to the suits sophisticated allure. Throw on a pair of heels, kick your feet back, and brace yourself to be the center of attention. Available at Shopbop.com, $220.

Dress to Impress: Escape in style with this colorful, bold print, Trina Turk cover-up. This eclectic piece can be transformed - from beachwear to street chic in seconds. Perfect for a boardwalk stroll or with a cosmopolitan at a café at sunset. Available at Victoriassecret.com, $159.

Sole Support: Just as you need a mental break from the 9-5 grind, your feet need stiletto time off too. Step into a pair of Havianas (“the best rubber sandal in the world”). Havianas come in a wide range of styles and colors making them an easy complement to any outfit. Nordstrom.com, $18.

On the Fly: Sun and sightseeing await so don’t waste time fussing with your hair. For a quick fix, adorn yourself in style with this bright colored turban headband. Also sold in purple and yellow. Forever21.com, $3.80.

Preserve the Glow: Even after your fun in the sun ends, shine bright with GlowFusion Micro-Nutrient Face & Body Natural Protein Tan Enhancing Emulsion. The lotion contains DHA, a chemical that interacts with your skin cells to enhance and extend your skin's sun-kissed color. Sephora.com, $40.

SNAPS: Formal Foot Traffic

The statement shoe trend continued at this year’s fall formal scene. Kenneth Cole Reaction “Know Way” heels proved an ultimate show-stopper, causing many party-goers to look twice before reporting back to the dance floor. Available at Kennethcole.com, $69.
