Whether you’re actually planning a summer vacation in beautiful Brazil (oh, the jealousy!) or looking to bring the tropical destination into your wardrobe at home, we have three sun-kissed outfits sure to bring the bright and exotic flavor of Brazil to life.
The Flight Down
As soon as you jet off, it’s time to get into the Brazilian state of mind and unleash your untamed style. A track jacket and shorts make for the ideal outfit for a long plane ride—comfortable, breathable, and light. Take things to the next level by picking pieces with an edge. PUMA is the place for bold graphics and elaborate styles. With its Pixação graffiti and obscure statements, the brand’s Clash track jacket will turn heads before you even land in Rio. We love how the bright cutoffs pick up on the paradise-pink piping to complement the zip-up.
Clash track jacket, available at PUMA for $75
J Brand 1046 neon low-rise cut-off denim shorts, available at Net-a-porter.com for $155
The Day Outing
The Brazilian culture embodies sport and unparalleled energy, so you never know when you’re going to have to hit the street from the beach for a midday tropical adventure. It’s important to always be prepared for a last-minute summer stroll—but not to sacrifice style for it. Pair your blazing bikini with stylish kicks that’ll get the job done, like PUMA’s epic Suede Classic sneakers with a faded peachy hue that’s seemingly sun-bleached from too much alfresco fun.

Desigual Granada bottom, available at Desigual for $44
Suede classic women's sneakers, available at PUMA for $65
The Evening Adventure
This fashion-forward dress embodies the carefree and invigorating life of Brazilians. Its free-flowing silhouette and pastel yellow hue pay tribute to the urban-hippie style of São Paulo, but the swirly print and skin-baring back is also representative of Rio’s eccentricity. Pair with a clutch that draws inspiration from the tropical landscape around you and you’re off to dance the night away.
