Our Favourite Getaway Destinations and How to Dress for Them

Embarking on a getaway is not just about escaping the routine; it's also an opportunity to immerse yourself in new experiences and create lasting memories. 

At Ôsalé, we believe in travelling sustainably whenever possible, from choosing eco-friendly destinations to taking your time with slow travel. By doing so, you not only minimise your environmental impact but also contribute to the preservation of the destinations you visit.

When travelling, what you wear plays a significant role in how you feel and how you experience your destination. From tropical paradises to pool-side resorts, each getaway spot has its own unique vibe and requires a distinct wardrobe. 

I’ve put together a couple of styling tips and outfit options for some of my favourite locations: Mexico, Bali, Dubai and Bahamas. 

I’ve focused largely on versatile clothing items that can be mixed and matched, allowing you to pack light and save some room in your suitcase for local products.

My styling tips include some of my favourite Ôsalé pieces, but I encourage you to explore the local markets and shops to find some beautiful bespoke items to pair with them – this is, afterall, one of the best parts of travelling! I can’t wait to see what you come up with – and please tag us on Instagram or Facebook so we can follow your journey.

Join along as I explore some of my favourite getaway destinations and share how to dress for them, ensuring you look and feel your best no matter where your travels take you.

Bohemian Luxe: Mexico

Ôsalé sustainable swim and resortwear

Discover the rich history, vibrant culture and stunning landscapes of Mexico, a country known for its warm hospitality and colourful traditions. I’ve provided a couple of styling tips to help you dress sustainably and stylishly when exploring Mexico’s ancient ruins, bustling markets and picture-perfect beaches.

The first thing that comes to mind when I think of style in Mexico is colour. I’ve opted for bright colours, intricate patterns and traditional motifs inspired by Mexican culture for this bohemian luxe selection.

Pair the Mamounia Edie top with the Nora bottom – both in a beautiful hand-painted, paisley-inspired print in rich fuschia with orange hues. I suggest combining this set with some local artisanal items that you’ll probably find in some of your favourite markets.

Alternatively, you could go for a bold colour-blocking option with the Farrah fuschia bikini top and Malika Chloe high-waisted bottom in paprika. This can be styled for the beach with denim shorts or an evening party with a crochet skirt.

Paradise Island: Bali

Immerse yourself in the beauty and tranquillity of Bali, an exotic island paradise known for its lush landscapes, vibrant culture and spiritual heritage. 

When packing for your Balinese retreat, choose sustainable resort wear pieces that capture the essence of island living. 

In Bali, you’re never too far from the beach or a temple, so I’ve tailored my tips so that you can jump from one to the other seamlessly. I’ve included stylish options for pool or beach-side hangs, but also some lightweight cover-up options so you can enjoy the stunning temples and stay cool in the tropical heat. 

I would go for the Souira Onepiece, with a hand-painted coral motif, for a more classy day at the pool or the Kasbah Edie bikini top with the Kasbah Marisa bottom for some relaxed beachside vibes.

Both options can be paired beautifully with the versatile Rakassa Caro Kimono and Lolo Trousers for a pop of colour. I always find these cover-ups so handy when travelling.

Poolside Glamour: Dubai

Sustainable luxury swim and resort wear

Experience the glitz and glamour of Dubai, a cosmopolitan oasis in the heart of the desert. When experiencing the city's iconic, luxurious resorts, dress to impress with chic and sustainable pieces from our collection. 

As always, I recommend opting for versatile separates that can easily transition from day to night. Embrace minimalist style with monochromatic looks and add a pop of colour with gold accents and statement accessories.

Let’s start with the Disco Cindy one piece. It’s always a show-stopper and ideal for those sundowner drinks that end up on the dancefloor. 

For a sophisticated poolside look, consider pairing the Onyx Kelly top and Jasmine bottom. This elegant combination exudes timeless style and effortless glamour, perfect for lounging by the pool or sipping cocktails at the beach bar. Alternatively, opt for the Benirras Lolo trousers and the Talitha swimsuit for a versatile ensemble that seamlessly transitions from beachside chic to casual daytime elegance. With its breezy silhouette and flattering design, this combination offers both comfort and style for any vacation setting.

And in case you need an emergency Ôsalé piece while over there, we’ve got you covered. We’re now stocked at Atlantis The Royal, an ultra-luxury resort that recently opened its doors.

Its unveiling weekend included – we kid you not – a dazzling performance by Beyoncé which we can’t quite get over. 

And, as you can imagine, the rest is the height of luxury: a guaranteed 24/7 A-list crowd, a Heston Blumenthal restaurant, Moët & Chandon in a vending machine and stunning interiors.

Now, amongst all that luxury, you can find Ôsalé and we’re absolutely over the moon about it! To stay tuned for more updates like this, subscribe to our newsletter on the website!

Tropical Days: Bahamas

With its pristine beaches, crystal-clear waters, and vibrant marine life, the Bahamas is the epitome of tropical paradise. When packing for your Bahamian getaway, choose bold colours and playful prints that reflect the beauty of the Caribbean landscape. 

I was inspired by the cool ocean blues and tropical hues when thinking of styling ideas for this trip. 

The turquoise Amante print top and bottom can be worn under the versatile Amanda dress. It’s a super lightweight option that’s perfect for the hot weather. 

For a super versatile and tropical-inspired look, our Yves Bianca one piece paired with the Yves Lolo beach trousers.
