A stylish getaway in the latest outdoor-inspired looks
Holiday season is rolling in, and if you are still hanging onto the same few sets of t-shirts and jeans that somehow always make their way into your luggage – it’s time to toss them out.
When you’re on vacation, it’s equally as important to feel the part and look the part. Whether it’s a straw hat with sunnies combo, or a flowy t-shirt dress reflective of turquoise waves, these outdoor-inspired pieces are key for the ultimate stylish getaway.

Rugged Canvas by BOLD&CRAFT
Saddle leather is made by applying a special kind of wax to full grain cowhide leather surface that has been smoothed out. The wax enhances the leather fibres and that way, when they are scratched or rubbed, the leather's natural colour changes its shade that gives the antique, vintage appearance. Naturally through wear & tear, the unique look of the saddle leather ages beautifully over time. Strap this Straits Supply – Forest Travel Backpack on from BOLD&CRAFT, to store all your travel essentials for a rustic, vintage look.
