The next best thing to an actual vacation is looking like you just got back from a trip. Right? And the best way to look like you've freshly arrived from somewhere fabulous is to boost your end-of-winter wardrobe with exotic, globally-influenced items.
Our multi-culti M.O.? Introducing ikat patterns in hues ranging from soft pastels to eye-popping brights. Something about the beautifully blurred graphic print makes us think of far-flung locales, balmy temps, and wanderlust-quenching adventures. Scope our picks in this of-the-moment motif and prep an answer for all those "Where'd you get that?" queries coming your way.
