“Away You Go” is a men’s spring fashion editorial that highlights clothing perfect for spring travel. Most of the outfits are for transitional dressing—so there are plenty of lightweight coats and jackets, bright colors, and easy pieces that travel well.
The editorial was shot in Asbury Park, New Jersey. The murals in the city’s boardwalk provide an excellent backdrop to the shoot. In a way, it’s also to show that one doesn’t need to hop on a plane to enjoy an escape from city living. Sometimes, a short hour-long drive outside is enough to clear the mind and soothe the soul.
When You’re in Transit
With the proliferation of mobile hotspots, there is little need to sign up for expensive call-and-data plans with your provider just so you can go online. These rentable, pocket-friendly devices (pick one up at the airport) allow you to post your activities on social media, use VOIP to call home, and get around with transit apps (and the always-reliable Google Maps). Just remember that you’re there on vacation; put down the phone once you’ve arrived. You should be seeing the sights, not websites.
Style tip: During these months, a polo offers more comfort than a button-front shirt, for the same fashion mileage. Wear them during your flight or under a blazer if you have to attend to work after touching down.
