What’s in Your Beach Bag, Tracy Reese?


Tracy Reese is expanding her portfolio beyond her signature fit and flare dresses. The designer has partnered with Belkin and Target to craft a summer wardrobe for your iPhone 5/5s along with Trina Turk, Orla Kiely, and Nicole Miller. Before the busy lady takes off for the season, Glam decided to play a game of “What In Your Bag?” with Reese to get the scoop on what summer has in store for her and how to style for the season.

When she needs to get away, Reese heads north. “As often as possible, I like to spend time at my house in upstate New York,” she shared. “But when I am in the city, I like to people watch on the Highline. The elevated public park is a favorite spot for people from all over the world. I see inspiration everywhere when I’m there.”

So what does she keep in her summer satchel? “Right now I love ultra-feminine, nostalgic pieces with a modern flair,” Reese explained. “I also love to mix patterns, so I tossed my new beach towel in a colorful, oversize embroidered bag.” She color coordinates her beach gear with a pair of pink Beats by Dre headphones and pretty Celine cateye shades. In regards of beauty, Reese's summer must-haves include Herbal Essences Naked Dry Shampoo, a Goody hair pick, a bold blue nail polish from Sally Hansen, and a pop of color for her pout courtesy of Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics. She also can’t forget her Comme des Garçons wallet and pack of Wrigley’s 5 gum.

From your clothes to your tech-essories, Reese is all about playing up color during the sultry season. “Have fun with your summer outfits!” she advised. “Mix it up–from patterns to different colors and dress more daringly. And don't forget–that includes your iPhone case!”
