Isabella Oliver – best known for its sartorial ways with baby bumps – now stocks a 365 collection of no-pregnancy-required womenswear. Dresses, tops, even the lingerie, all seem to have a pared-down sophistication that is ideal capsule-wardrobe material. À la Girl Meets Dress, we’ve married our favourite pieces with places.
Destination: SAN SEBASTIAN Wear The Roma dress.
Why? It may seem contrary to pair an Italian-titled day dress with a Basque city, but go with it. The curve-flattering drapes are easy to wear and suitcase-friendly, while its long sleeves and fitted shape are ideal for this seaside breezy city. Hang it in your wardrobe at Astoria7. This movie-themed designer den warrants elegant sophistication.
Destination: CAPE TOWN Wear The Draped Tank. Why? South Africa’s city by the sea has laid-back in its dress code – this sexy vest, with its silky ruching, is a step up from the kind of cami you could get away with in a beach resort – without being overly smart. Wear it shopping on the waterfront, or to the bar at sunset. Hang it in your wardrobe at Alta Bay. The glamour is understated at this hilltop hideaway up Table Mountain. They’d no more demand a jacket and tie in the restaurant than they would stick you in an anything-less-than-stylish room.
