After all the holiday gifts have been unwrapped and just before the new Spring/Summer collections have hit the stores – it’s that wonderful pre-collection time of year that we wait for all year long. That in-between-seasons roll out of fabulous new styles that we can’t wait to get out hands on! That’s right, ladies and . . . ladies, we’re talking about resort season, and judging by the stylish offerings from some of our favorite brands, its already in full swing! And since we’re still feeling in the spirit of giving, we’ve decided to share our top 5 pieces to get you resort-ready in the new year from one of our favorite boho beach brands, Blue Life!
Now, if you haven’t heard of Blue Life yet, then you’re going to want to take note! Cause this beachy boho chic brand is the perfect marriage of comfort and sexiness, and trust us when we say, that its about to be the new staple in your wardrobe. Blue Life was created by Planet Blue’s in house design team as a line of basics that brings that Cali girl vibe to designs that are both beach and street. But in our humble opinion, these designs are anything but basic! You can always expect flowy dresses, tops, jumpsuits, rompers, skirts, tops and swimwear that are all created with that effortless free spirit ethos that Planet Blue successfully carved out and made a name for themselves with, many years ago.
For those of you who have been long time fans of the trendy Planet Blue boutiques in Malibu and Beverly Hills, not to mention their online store, you already know that this go-to California brand has the boho clothing vibe on lock, and always does a fabulous job curating collections that are on-brand with their easy breasy lifestyle. But now that you know about the store’s own brand, Blue Life, will your wardrobe ever be the same? We think not.
As long time fans of Planet Blue ourselves, we have become equally infatuated with the brand’s in house label, Blue Life. We love the variety of looks ranging from beachy basics, to sultry slip dresses, to floral playsuits. Whatever the occasion, Planet Blue always has great options, and we love knowing that the brand’s very own label is just as reliable. And if you’re not completely sold yet, take it from us! The Cali based label known for its boho vibes and beach-cool aesthetics won’t disappoint. Beach-to-street styles keep your fashion game on point whether you’re actually heading out for a resort holiday, or just looking for some fresh new style inspo to launch you into the new year! And if you’re planning a special vacay and headed out of town to rock your new styles, might we suggest making some extra room in your suitcase this season? Cause with all these cute styles, you’re going to need it!
If you’re looking for a dress that is both elegant and simple, then Blue Life’s Bella Dress is a must have for your closet.
