Rebecca Taylor’s resort 2015 collection is a reminder that fashion can be comfortable. The main trends in the lookbook are printed high-waisted shorts, sheer dresses and midi skirts that look like they would blow nicely in a summer breeze. Most of the line is comprised of light pieces that could easily be layered, including a few fuzzy sweaters that would work perfectly over a maxi dress or swim suit once the sun goes down.
I felt a connection with this collection because I’m a firm believer in dressing comfortably. I usually enjoy putting together a trendy business-casual look for work, but even Fashionista/os need a break sometimes. There are days when I don’t want to wiggle into a pencil skirt or pointed-toe flats, but office-appropriate alternatives are hard to find. Today, my outfit is as comfortable as my favorite sweatpants, but still okay for work. I paired my printed maxi dress with a comfortable pair of TOMS and then added simple jewelry. The look is understated and comfy.
Midi dresses are a great purchase. They are long enough to be office-appropriate but short enough that you won’t trip over them. When picking out comfortable but professional clothing, sheer fabrics like the ones used in Rebecca Taylor’s resort 2015 collection are always a safe bet. These pieces will keep you cool in the heat, are nice enough to wear to the office and stains are easy to remove from them. What more could you ask for?
