Staying Stylish in Every Climate

Posted by Timbers Resorts on October 29, 2013

The perfect outfit can set the tone for the perfect vacation. To make sure you don’t get caught without the right ensemble, we’ve tracked down all of the essentials. Grab a pen because it’s time to make a packing list for your next trip to one of Timbers Resorts’ private residence clubs or boutique hotels!

Sunning in the Caribbean

A glamorous bathing suit

Scrap the string bikini on your next visit to The Preserve at Botany Bay and try a bathing suit with some drama. A high waisted, retro bikini from Norma Kamali evokes Hollywood glamour while a one piece with sexy cutouts will turn heads without revealing a ton of skin.

A sporty bathing suit

Pack a sporty yet stylish swimsuit for watersports. Adidas by Stella McCartney always offers stylish options and Lisa Marie Fernandez has built an empire on sexy, sport swimwear.

Stylish beach shoes

Forget flip flops. Track down a pair of stylish sandals that won’t get damaged by the sand and surf like a Givenchy jelly sandal.


A caftan is by far the most elegant way to hit the beach and transitions day to night. Missoni is a classic but there are plenty of chic options from up and coming designers like Marie France Van Damme.

Oversized shades

Sure they’ve been trending for awhile now but a pair of extra large sunglasses are still essential for elevating any beach look. Miu Miu and Prada are fantastic for adding some fun and whimsy to their frames but basic black will get the job done as well.

Skiing in Colorado

Stylish ski jacket

Every snow bunny needs a ski jacket that transitions from the slopes straight to après-ski cocktails. Moncler dominates in this arena as does Ralph Lauren’s RLX line.

Fur-trimmed boots

Nothing keeps your feet toasty while trotting around town when you’re at Dancing Bear Aspen, The Sebastian – Vail or One Steamboat Place like a pair of fur trimmed boots. From Dior to Chanel, all the major designers bring out versions for winter so there are options galore.

Cashmere sweater

Cozy cashmere sweaters are a must whether layered under your jacket on the slopes or curling up in front of the fireplace. Loro Piana, Brunello Cucinelli and Equipment are go-to favorites.

Technical layers

Your bottom layer while skiing always needs to be a technical fabric that will keep you nice and dry. Long underwear is great but another great option is to use a running layer from a favorite activewear brand like Lululemon, which will work for lots of other outdoor sports as well.


On the slopes, pick function over form – pick a neckwarmer that fits snuggly from an activewear fabric. But, off the slopes, have fun with a fur circle scarf.

Coastal Living in the UK

Hunter Boots

For the potentially wet weather of the UK, there’s nothing more practical than a classic Hunter boot nor more effortlessly fashionable – picture Kate Moss at the Glastonbury Festival. Check out the brand’s collaboration with Rag & Bone for an elevated version of the traditional boot.

Water Resistant Shell

A water-resistant jacket with a classic, preppy air is a necessity. A waxed field coat is a class – try a Beretta, L.L. Bean or any other company that has a history producing hunting jackets. They hit all the right style notes and are super sturdy for all your outdoor activities.

Argyle Sweater

Argyle, a classic pattern derived from the tartan of Clan Campbell of Argyll in Scotland, is a favorite for a day on the golf course. Where to turn is a no brainer – Pringle of Scotland.

Wool or Tweed Blazer

A blazer in a great menswear fabric like wool or tweed can act as outerwear during the day and as a layering piece at night. You can’t go wrong with Ralph Lauren.

Boyfriend Jeans

This easy staple pairs just as well with heavy boots as it does with a pair of heels. Current/Elliott and J Brand both offer a wide range of these loose fit styles.
