Throughout August, we’ll be shining a light on your summer style. Here’s how Vogue Club’s Associate Social & Community Manager Alexandra Ditch is spending the season—and what’s in her suitcase.
What’s your essential summer purchase—and why do you love it?
If I could wear a dress every single day, especially in the summer, I would! As someone who loves print and color, Rhode dresses always catch my eye.
Where’s a place you love to visit—and what makes it special to you?
Edgartown, Martha’s Vineyard is my happy place! I’ve spent every summer of my life there. From the gorgeous beaches to the delicious seafood—and generations of family memories––it’s really no wonder why I love it there so much. Don’t miss: nighttime ice cream strolls, bike rides to the farmer’s market, and happy hours on the porch… There’s truly no place I’d rather be!
What’s your favorite swimwear—and the beach where you’ll be wearing it?
I am in love with the Domino one-piece by Hunza-G. I adore textured fabrics—and their materials are so comfortable. I’ve been sporting this suit on Fuller Street Beach in Edgartown all summer long.
What’s the one fashion item you wouldn’t go on vacation without, and why?
The Staud Sea Skirt is not only my go-to vacation staple—it’s my “go anywhere, do anything” piece throughout the year. I often wear it to the Vogue office, and roll it up into my suitcase for summer trips.
What’s your summer beauty staple—and why?
I slather on Supergoop’s Glowscreen every morning in the summer. I know I’m not the only Supergoop super fan—we’ve chatted about many of their products in the Beauty channel of Vogue Club’s Discord server. Aside from Supergoop, though, I never go to the beach without throwing a Shiseido Clear Sunscreen Stick in my bag! I love that it’s SPF 50, and that it’s so easy to apply… and reapply!
