Earlier this week, I checked out the Calypso St. Barth for Target collection and tried on a dozen or so dresses, tunics, bathing suits and the like. Each piece instantly whisked me away to beachy retreats along distant coasts (fashion can do that, you know). My favorites pieces on the racks were the colorful silk tunics with cool detailing like sequin trim or crochet accents. These ran true to size (or even a bit snug - I appreciate that the tunics are fitted for a slim, non-muumuu look but the armholes were a tad tight and there's not much give with fabrics like silk, cotton and linen. Of course, I'm not complaining about the awesome fabrics. It's great to see Calypso use natural, breathable fibers for a resort collection instead of polyester. That would have been disastrous.
