Black Magic

Try a black color scheme for your summer travel wardrobe. A bit surprising, perhaps, but an effortless way to pack light and chic. Jane’s Vanity concocts some black magic with just six ingredients for warm-weather alchemy.

Begin with Karolina Laskowska’s Selene Couture Lingerie Set. Constructed of an abstract “circuit board” corded black lace, it is accented with stunning iridescent sequined lace trim. The beautiful demi bra is adjustable at the back to fit the equivalent of four bra sizes. The set is an unforgettable travel companion.

Top with a Parigi Black Cotton Tank from Dana Pisarra. Its fine detailing includes a ribbed whisper-weight body to fit every curve, a scoop neck, and wide bra-friendly straps.

Next add one of Gilda & Pearl’s slip skirts with black Leavers lace accenting at hem. Choose the Midnight Cognac Skirt  in antique gold or the Midnight Jade in teal blue. The slip skirt look will take you places. Maybe you should pack both of them.

Now for a little blending. Plan to strut out in the Esme Marabou Lounge Set from Gilda and Pearl. The sporty top sits at the hip and features sustainably-sourced feathers at wrist. Trousers are slinky and trimmed with feathers at hem. These two pieces are wearable together, of course, but are also great as separates that could pair with tank top, slip skirts, and jacket to create a week of mix and match looks.

Summer requires a sundress and Klements provides the scoop-neck sleeveless Watchtower Fleet Dress in spirited black print. A tribute to Jimi Hendrix’s love of pattern, it is your un-basic black uniform which just requires the All That Glitters Jacket as an evening wrap. Or, for a party vibe, layer the dress over Gilda & Pearl’s Esme Marabou Lounge trousers and wear its matching shirt unbuttoned with sleeves pushed up and shawl collar draped around your shoulders.

There you have it. A sleight-of-hand vacation wardrobe that disappears into your carry-on. And is sure to inspire future JV experiments in travel magic.
