Style Inspiration: Winter Escape

THERE IS A CERTAIN ART in making a winter escape somewhere warm and tropical during the winter break. The wardrobe must be a mix of simplicity and subtle sophistication, with neutral hues and natural fabrics. Light linen shirts, dainty lace white dresses, straw hats and leather sandals will remain essentials, and of course the bikini: darker hues will highlight a golden tan. Knowing you will be spending all day barefoot in the sand, catching up on all the novels you’ve been meaning to read, means overdressing or overpacking aren’t options to consider. Neither is heavy makeup, for the sun rays will bronze in all the right places: moisturiser, lip balm and highlighter are all you need.

There is also a sense of the unknown, for one day you may decide to board a sailboat and explore nearby islands until dusk, and the next, visit the antique ruins of Tulum or temples of Myanmar, completely entranced by their cultural heritage. Everything seems more raw and pure, since days are reduced to the wonderful simplicity of enjoying yourself. One morning you wake up to the most magical sunrise over the horizon painting the sea gold, and all at once, your worries fade away. Therein lies the art of winter escapes: losing yourself.

Fashion Contributor, London

Victoria lives in the south of Spain, having moved there from her native country Ukraine when she was just a child. She finds herself looking up to timeless icons from past decades including Jackie O, Grace Kelly, Katherine Deneuve and Audrey Hepburn, and longing for sunny afternoons on the French Riviera and walks along the Seine during spring. Always overdressed and dishing out on tailored pieces and shoes – secretly dreaming they were from Dior or Saint Laurent – she dresses for herself rather than others, and would trade breakfast for Vogue or a one way ticket to anywhere beautiful.
