This spring and summer, whether I’m at my desk, out to dinner, or actually on vacation, my style goal is to emulate someone who has their email set to vacation responder mode because out-of-office style is officially in. It’s kind of like the whole dress-for-the-job-you-want thing but updated to dress for the vibe you want. It’s the perfect cross between S/S 19’s California-cool and traveler trends, and includes, but isn’t limited to, maxi dresses, strappy sandals, tourist sandals, tropical prints, wrap skirts, beach-ready accessories, swimsuits as tops, and more.
If this all sounds too abstract for you, not to worry, because of course I’ve rounded up all the outfit inspo you could possibly need in order to make sense of all this. To see how some of my favorite girls on Instagram are making OOO style their own and shop some of the pieces you’ll need to get the look along the way, just keep scrolling.
