As I mentioned, to plan a trip in under 11 hours, I had to get my bag together pretty fast. However, it turned out to be surprisingly easy. My first tropical resort vacation and I definitely got into the theme. I think trips like this the are definitely the time to have fun with your fashion choices, and the perfect climate to do so too. I kept it colorful and brought out the prints but paired it with pieces that were pretty easy to style and grounded the looks from being too busy. I kept it loose on the bottom with these palazzo and tulip pants (love that sexy slit), and paired them with basic tops, but that still brought out the pop of color. Little to no accessories, partially because I forget them, and also because they are not needed. The prints and colors steal the show and you don’t necessarily need to many “extras” to feel like you have a complete look.
A style tip I have when going for the colorful or fun print bottoms is to pull out a corresponding color from what you’re working with on the bottoms. For example the blue top goes with some of the blue stripes in my pants. If I was wearing some kind of floral print bottoms, maybe I’d match the top to a color of one of the flowers. You get the idea. I also loved how this blue cross body bag matched perfectly and added its own little pop of color. If you have a colorful bag or accessory, an island vacation is definitely a great time to show it off.
Although these pants can be styled in a few ways, I wanted to keep this look fun also. The tassel has a bit of orange, so I took that accent color and made the look pop even more by going for the orange halter. A crochet anything definitely gives me island style vibes. Espadrille wedges are also a great versatile shoe to bring on vacation because they’re kind of casual but can complete your looks and can dress them up too. A neutral pair like these white ones will go with all your looks.
If you’re curious about nightlife on the resort, COVID definitely created a snag in the party scene in Punta Cana. Not that I minded as the lack of crowds definitely put my mind at ease and made me feel safer. However, on the weekend there was a live show in the theater which was fun to check out and a DJ that played outside the main lobby until midnight every night.
