Remember when summer meant packing up and spending a week sunbathing and relaxing on the beach? Oh, the times! Having been at home these past couple of months, one can safely say that a day at the beach feels like a far-fetched dream at the moment. Summer in 2020 will be watering our plants, taking a stroll on the terrace and snuggling up with a good book and cold coffee.
However, you can still at least pretend that you’re headed somewhere with these cute outfits. Bonus points if you’re able to (safely) go to the beach or pool depending on where you live. We have the perfect picks for you. Essgee by Sagsrika Grover is a homegrown label with a focus on the luxury bohemian aesthetic, which serves its clients exactly what they need, be it an edge to the quotidian or adding an exclusive touch to one’s resort wear. Scroll ahead to take your picks and at-home styling tips.
Backless jumpsuit in chiffon embellished with sequins
One can never go wrong with white—it complements every skin tone and will be perfect for the Zoom birthday you have to attend. The light-weight chiffon jumpsuit will also be a comfortable option as you sit and enjoy a day in with your family. Add a beaded choker necklace and tie your hair in low bun for a fuss-free look.
Mini ruched dress with fringe details
Summer means relaxed dresses and this figure-hugging dress will be the perfect upgrade for your first virtual date. The fuschia pink will add a splash of colour and the fringed details will give it a dramatic upgrade—it’s the perfect blend of classic and chic. Go for gold hoops and a nude lip and imagine you’re on a date IRL and not virtually.
Mini shirt dress with embroidered ruffles
Bring the ocean with you to work (read: makeshift home office) by wearing this light blue shirt dress. Perfect for a Zoom meeting with a client. Make it slightly more sophisticated by adding pearl drop earrings and going for a messy bun.
Kimono with functional loops and buttons that can be worn 6 ways
This year has taught us to invest in items that are useful and necessary. An outfit that can be worn in six different ways will help you keep that promise. This stunning tie-dye piece is perfect for spending a lazy Saturday, even though we really can’t jet off to a vacation. Just imagine you’re on one anyway by wearing this tie-dye kimono and you won’t miss those kaftans (don’t lie, you have one in your closet).
Mesh blouse with elastic and drawstring details
We stan an off-shoulder, especially in black. The crochet mesh and the drawstring breaks up the solid hue, and you’ll get an effortless look when you pair it with denims and a high bun for the Sunday Netflix party with your friends.
So, vacation time might not be showing up on the calendar anytime soon. But these fashionable ensembles will keep you comfy and make you look laid back, relaxed, and get you ready to soak up some Vitamin D, as you wait for this tricky phase to get over.
