Update: The deadline for entering the Where contest on Pinterest has now passed. Thank you to everyone who entered. A winner will be announced soon.
Fashion and travel go hand-in-hand. There's limited room in that suitcase and you only zip up your favorite pieces to come along for the ride. You need that great scarf for the windy city of Chicago, couture sunglasses to block the rays in L.A., a bright sundress for the beach in Miami and the perfect European outfit for exploring the streets of Paris.
It's understandable. We love fashion, too. That's why September is our favorite month of the year: it's fashion month. To celebrate, we've featured fashion icon John Varvatos on this month's cover (much like our past covers with Tim Gunn, Trina Turk and Rachel Zoe).
Now we want to hear from you. We're kicking off this year's fashion month with our Pin It to Win It "Where Travel Style" competition, presented by Where and Macy's. Pin a wardrobe for your dream trip and you could win a $100 Macy's gift card to get you started shopping and celebrating all things fashion. But don't stop with just pinning your destination and a basic wardrobe: Add iPad covers, laptop handbags, sunglasses or any fashion-forward item that would be the perfect complement for that trip.
It’s easy to enter, just follow these steps:
- Follow WhereTraveler on Pinterest.
- Create a board titled "Where Travel Style"
- Pin the "Pin it to Win it" image above.
- Pin your dream destination and then pin your perfect travel wardrobe.
- Go crazy with creative ideas and inspiration!
- Add your board's link to the comments of this photo on Pinterest.
The winner will be chosen by our editors based on creativity and the board's composition, and they are looking for the most inspired board out there. The winner will be contacted via Pinterest. (For more details, see the complete rules posted below.)The competition ends Sept. 30, 2013, so get pinning!
To get those juices flowing, check out this example our team member Jen put together for her dream trip to Santorini, Greece:
And here's what our marketing director Melissa is dreaming about (Italy!):
