Mike Gonzalez's Amazing Summer 2011 Lookbook Is A Wearable Vacation

Between the rising temperature tease and summer lookbooks materializing, we're flirting with the idea of tropical escapes (and what we'd wear if one were to serendipitously present itself). Mike Gonzalez's summer '11 lookbook is a thorough guide to fashion-forward dressing closer to the equator, but this collection of wild indigenous prints and resort-wear translates just as well to any big city wardrobe. Rich colors pulled right from warmer landscapes electrify tribal and indigenous Peruvian motifs in the form of long layered skirts, sheer tops, and gorgeous knit cardigans. Staples like denim cuffed shorts, woven tops with geometric cut-outs, and graphic leggings make this wild collection totally tamable. Get ready for a vacation—one you're going to wear.
