Throughout August, we’ll be shining a light on your summer style. Here’s how Vogue Club member Munnyhkkie Moutinho is spending the season—and what’s in her suitcase…
What’s your essential summer purchase—and why do you love it?
My Rent the Runway subscription! Not only do I get to choose all my outfits ahead of time based on the location, weather, and event––but they also ship directly to you, making it easy and convenient for vacations. I’ve been a member since 2009, and can’t live without it!
Where’s a place you love to visit—and what makes it special to you?
Massachusetts has my heart. During the summer there is so much to see and do: from the gorgeous beaches at the North Shore to the ever-classic Cape Cod. When in Beantown, there’s nothing better than a stroll through the Seaport, Newbury Street, and North End––you are sure to find fantastic places to eat. Summer in Boston never disappoints.
What’s your favorite swimwear—and the beach where you’ll be wearing it?
BOUND by Bond-Eye’s bikinis are colorful, fun, sexy, and flattering! I can’t wait to wear my new set to my favorite beach, Good Harbor in Gloucester, MA. The sunsets there are a magical reminder of when I first arrived in the United States, during the summer of 2002.
What’s the one fashion item you wouldn’t go on vacation without, and why?
Silk scarves are a must! They are an easy and versatile way to add style to any outfit. You can use it in your hair, purse, as a top, belt, and so much more…
What’s your summer beauty staple—and why?
A couple of years ago I fell in love with the Chanel SPF 50 CC Cream––it’s lightweight and offers very natural coverage. I’ll use it as part of my everyday makeup look, and as a quick pick-me-up before going to the beach or on a summer night out. My hair fix? Samnyte’s Wax Stick does wonders for the hair during summer, keeping flyways at bay. Consider this your shortcut to perfectly sleek hair in a matter of seconds.
