Let’s talk about the Carbon38 Passport Collection for a minute: the spirit of this blog is about showing the beauty in technical fabrics and sporty designs, and Carbon38 is hands down one of my favorite retailers in the space. Summer styles are in full swing, and if you haven’t heard that Carbon38 has released their first resort wear collection, drop what you’re doing, and PEEK. IT. NOW. I was drawn to the structured feminine details and the solid colors, and cannot wait for my second shipment to get here! Stay tuned for some of beautiful dresses and tops; I must say that they have really out done themselves this time.
This new ready-to-wear line comes equipped with everything you need for summer travels, and everything you don’t:
Wash and wear (wrinkle free)? Check.
Elegant designs? Check.
The ability to mix and match to dress your look up or down (aka less shit to pack)? CHECK.
Are they a little pricey? Hell yeah, but hear me out: if you remember my post about the Carbon38 Tommaso Pants, you’ll remember that the cost is built in because these pieces are truly like having 4 outfits in one, all in different codes of dress. Sound a little more budget friendly now? Trust me, I got you. You won’t be disappointed.
Grab your passport, and grab some of my favorites must haves from the collection:
I am loving the Hong Kong full sleeved sweatshirt, as it’s elegant enough to style up for the office, yet casual enough to wear around town on the daily. I highly recommend it for travel, as you’ll be able to repurpose your flight OOTD for something a little fancier, or even an evening walk on the beach!
What are your favorite pieces from the collection? Tag me in your Passport Collection posts on social media, I love seeing you guys styling pieces I’ve posted!
