While packing for my trip to Morocco, I had a bit of a style revelation.
Being required to dress in modest, loose clothing – not knowing what type of environments we might be in – and taking into account the vast change in temperature during the day, I was suddenly on the hunt for the perfect layering pieces.
In that search, I stumbled upon a couple new (and one old) favorite brands that I will absolutely be wearing this summer when our own temps finally start to rise…
Ilana Kohn out of NYC: many of her pieces could easily go from beach to city depending on how you style them.
My pick: An all-white jumpsuit for those brave enough to don it, dressed with heels and adorned with layers of chunky ethnic jewels for day-to-night style.
Ace & Jig: I’ve loved this brand based out of Brooklyn for quite some time – their patterns always give a bohemian vibe and the fabric is perfection. Their gorgeous textiles are woven in India.
My pick: Go with the caftan trend and don this short-sleeved version that is fitted just enough to not feel like you’re swimming in fabric. Head wrap optional (but damn does it look good!).
Hackwith: Based in Minneapolis, this boutique designer only produces 25 of each piece, making them an extra special addition to the wardrobe.
