Marking off the days on your calendar, hoping and praying that a vacation is in your near future? Missing the adrenaline rush of putting together a cute outfit for day 1,2 or 5 of your trip? We hear you. Travel is an intrinsic part of our lives. And dressing up for travel, even more so. When on holiday, every morning brings with it, infinite possibilities. The possibility of expressing yourself, while exploring an exotic place. The possibility of being a new you. A fun, flirty, fiery you. Fashion awards you that freedom. But during the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, all of this seems like a bizarre aspiration.
Luckily, Club Mahindra Resorts has put travel back on the itinerary. We’ve made it safe for you to take a break, to get a fresh perspective, to enjoy a novel scenery, to try a new dish, all with your family by your side. And in honour of reviving this magic, we’ve put together some fashion and travel tips for Covid, segregated based on landscape.
Take a walk through our virtual boutique!
If you’re anything like us, then you can already hear the familiar call of the ocean. Seagulls crooning. Waves crashing onto the shore. Leaves rustling softly. Have we caught you in a daydream? Don’t worry, your beach reunion is not too far away, as Club Mahindra’s safe resorts in Goa and Kerala are now open for stay. But first things first. Let’s get you looking and feeling beach ready. Our first tip is for you to pack items of clothing that are light and breathable, so that it doesn’t weigh down on you when drenched in water, and can be easily washed and dried. These are important considerations during Covid-19 times. Now let’s talk about specifics. For the women, we’d suggest packing chic summer dresses in floral or block prints. For the men, a tropical print shirt matched with drawstring trousers, equals effortless suave. These looks work well for the kiddies too! To make the outfits work as a whole, pair them with pastel coloured or earthy toned Covid-19 cloth masks, and your favourite sunglasses!
Escaping to the hills, where fresh air is the leader of your quaran-team, sounds like the perfect plan, don’t you think? We’re here to remind you that Club Mahindra’s safe resorts in Uttarakhand are waiting to make your lockdown ‘up and happening’. Here are some of our expert styling tips to get you in the mood for mountain magic. A light knit sweater married with denim jeans and a woollen cap is easy, and makes a killer statement. It’s possible that you’ll find these items in your closet itself, but if not, there are tons of great brands out there that will cater to your winter fashion needs. Here’s our essentials list, ideal for the whole family – long pants, thermal inner (if you’re prone to feeling cold), cardigan, scarf, gloves. While these items seem obvious enough, we’d recommend colour coordinating them. For instance, greys work well with blacks, blues can be paired with browns, and bright colours can be toned down with beiges. Don’t forget to pull out those boots that you’re always saving for overseas trips!
Has your mind gone off on a holiday of its own, wandering around the deserts and sand dunes? Well, it’s time to get you back onto the same page as your wayfaring mind. Club Mahindra’s safe resorts in Rajasthan welcome you to a mystical, regal getaway. Replete with every Covid-19 safety measure, the only question now is what will you wear? Girls, how about palazzo pants thrown on with a printed short jacket or cape? Add a long necklace and floppy sandals to the mix, and with your Covid-19 cloth mask on, this screams ‘outfit of the day’! Men, we’d like to see you in a brown linen shirt and a khaki backpack. Kids, those jumpsuits and cute headbands were made for this vacay. And when you’ve all got those sunnies on, the moment calls for an Instagram worthy family shot. And hey, don’t forget for even a second that comfort is the most stylish hack there. So, own it!
Amidst all the worries of Covid-19, the thought of nature always seems to put the mind at ease. More so, the thought of majestic wild animals roaming free in the wild. Social distancing looks a little different in the jungle. And if you’ve got a craving to be part of this kingdom of freedom, Club Mahindra’s safe resorts in Uttarakhand invites you to play. It’s time to end this lockdowner. Wondering how to dress up for this trip? Fret not, our stylists have got you covered. Long sleeve shirts with collars, partnered with safari trousers, is the staple jungle attire. Add a smart boonie hat to the ensemble, and you’ve taken it up just a notch. If you’ve got military prints lying somewhere at the back of your drawer, it’s time to take those out too. We say, live a little. While looking good is a benefit, being bitten by mosquitoes is not, so lather up on the repellent and bug spray.
Ecstatic to get out of those track pants and pyjamas? We hope that these fashion and travel tips for Covid have brightened up your day and prepared you for your next visit to one of our safe resorts. Until then, stay classy, stay stylish!
