Clothes can set the mood for many adventures, whether it’s a romantic dinner at a new local restaurant, a leisurely drive exploring the state’s many wonders, or a week-long getaway to the Big Apple.
It’s less about the perfect outfit and more about continuing to express ourselves with the clothes we wear as we eagerly anticipate and dress for what’s ahead. These days, that often means skipping the predictable and embracing the unexpected. For some, that’s an adventure in itself. Instead of wearing a cashmere sweater under a plaid jacket, consider a whimsical T-shirt. Invest in a bold or colorful print that lifts the spirit and embraces creativity. Slip into a shoe that’s so not you—but exactly what you want at the moment. Wear a hat, especially if you’ve never worn one. It’s the perfect accessory any time of the year. Shield your eyes from the sun with hot pink sunglasses.
This is also a good time to find inspiration in vintage clothing and accessories, which can be another kind of adventure for some. Not only is vintage popular and one of the best sustainable options, it’s also an easy and sometimes unexpected way to add interest, flair, and a little romance to an outfit. Slip on a 1950s-style princess coat with a more modern dress. Add a couple of vintage necklaces, rings, or bracelets to your jewelry box. And while you’re shopping, pick up a vintage scarf or two that can be tied around a handbag, wrist, or neck. Why not start an adventure with clothing that already has history? Who knows where those pieces have taken others?
Clothes can help set the expectation for any adventure, but if we’re being honest, sometimes clothes are the adventure.
