Parched, dull skin, iced over sidewalks that aren’t kind to heels and gloomy, gray skies…The Winter certainly takes a toll, both mentally and physically, on all of us CHIC girls, and we don’t blame you if you sense the urge to plan a vacation in the sun with your beau. Let’s face it, everyone looks better with a little color on their sweet cheeks, and who doesn’t love an excuse to invest in brilliantly colored, figure enhancing resort clothes?? If you’re ready to escape the bitter cold and embrace the warmth of the South, take a peek at these fabulous and thrilling pieces from Susana Monaco. Designed in a beautifully vivid blue hue, the Batiste Zip Tube Dress ($214.00) features a CHIC pleated skirt and classic tube top, and of course, this riveting and sassy color will look rather remarkable against your newly acquired, sun-kissed glow! To render your man speechless, style this fun frock with lavish layers of gold necklaces and chocolate colored wedges. If you’re feeling a bit frisky, dare to be bold and pair the dress with candy red heels. Similar to this tube dress, the Batiste Zip Dress in Valencia ($225.00) is another resort piece that can be worn to lunch at a beachside restaurant or styled for a night out of dining and dancing. The rich, orange-red hue will make your tan pop and look rather divine with chunky, gold accessories. We’d die to pair this delicious dress with leopard print gladiators or nude pumps.
