The wait is FINALLY over!!! The Gibson Look Road Trip Collection is finally here and LIVE! To say this collection has been a long time in the making is a true understatement. We started working on details earlier in the year and then COVID hit which caused us to take a major step back. Once Gibson got the green light we hit the ground running.

This entire Road Trip collection is absolutely stunning and perfect for summer. There are 4 girls total, including myself, that have multiple pieces. I have a huge try on session going on over on my Instagram Stories with my pieces and some of my other pieces from the other gals. If you don’t have time to watch the entire try on session I have details on every piece below and everything is linked in the LiketoKnow.it app. The try on session will be saved on my Instagram Highlights as well.

GIBSON LOOK ROAD TRIP TRY ON SESSION

DTKAUSTIN FIT & FLARE BELTED GINGHAM SWING DRESS

This dress is my absolute favorite from this collection. You guys know I love a good summer dress and I really wanted that to come through in the design of this dress. Hence, why I have 2 of the same dress in different fabrics and prints. My main goal with this dress was to have a piece that would work for any body type and work for any season.

Fit and flare dresses are absolutely stunning on any and every body type. Whether you have curves or don’t, this dress is going to fit you perfectly. The higher neck is extremely flattering but still full coverage enough you don’t have to worry about showing too much skin. I also wanted to have a dress that was a little longer. Most ladies don’t like wearing short mini dresses so I wanted to accommodate a garment that would be extremely versatile no matter the occasion.

Let’s talk sizing. If y’all have worn Gibson before you know their sizing runs a little on the larger side. Personally, I would say size down one size from what you usually wear. I ended up going down 2 sizes to the XXS because I love my fit and flare dresses pretty tight on the top to really give me some curves!

This dress does come with a belt that is removable so you can interchange your own belts if you want. It also zips up in the back so it is extremely easy to get in and out of. This dress is also fully lined as well!

DTKAUSTIN FIT & FLARE BELTED EYELET SWING DRESS

Here is the coral version of the gingham dress above. I absolutely loved the cut and fit of this dress I really wanted to have a black and white version and then something with a little color. We went with a gorgeous coral color in an eyelet fabric that is so beautiful for summer.

All of the details will be the same on this dress as the gingham dress. Y’all know I’m not one to wear a lot of color but I know a lot of you guys love a beautiful shade of color to wear in the warmer months. So why coral? Coral is such a gorgeous color on any skin type and will make anyone and everyone look tan even if you are white as a board like me!

DTKAUSTIN BLACK & WHITE STRIPED PUFF SLEEVE TEE

The next piece in my little collection is this striped, puff sleeve top. I really had a vision with this one where I wanted something that would again, be extremely versatile for any occasion and every season. This tee is probably the most versatile piece in the collection and the ivory color below is the most versatile out of the two.

My goal with this top was to have a tee that was casual enough that you can wear with shorts or leggings but easily dress up with a pencil skirt or slacks and easy to wear under a blazer. I also wanted to add a fun sleeve to give more detail to a normally basic tee so it really stands out above the rest.

I also wanted to create a staple piece that would be a must have in anyone’s wardrobe. I mean, who doesn’t love a good tee?? They literally go with everything and look great on everyone!

The fabric is extremely soft and lightweight so you can get away with wearing this in the Texas heat which was a must for me. I ended up sticking with the size small because I don’t like my t-shirts tight fitting or clinging to me if it’s too hot outside. The small was the perfect fit and gives a little blousier look that is perfect to wear with skirts, pants or shorts. If you want a tighter fit definitely size down.

DTKAUSTIN IVORY PUFF SLEEVE TEE

Here is the ivory version of the same top. Again, I wanted to create a neutral piece that would work with any type of outfit and color palette. Like I said above, I think the ivory version is the most versatile out of the 2 tops. I have it paired pretty casually with a pair of high waisted linen shorts but you can easily dress this up for work or even dress it down with a pair of cutoff shorts.

I absolutely love the ivory color because you can see the sleeve detail even more. This is such a fun twist on your basic tee and I hope y’all love it as much as I do!

SWISS DOT DRESS

Now, on to my other girlfriend’s designs! I was instantly drawn to this white, Swiss dot dress right when I saw it. It was SO me!! The fact that none of us girls had ever met or talked about our designs with one another, we totally nailed these designs. We even had a ton of similar details in each of our pieces which was fun to see!

I am wearing the size small in this dress and probably could have sized down to the XS. Since the top portion is smocked/elastic you do have some wiggle room on sizing. This dress is also extremely versatile in the ways you can wear it. I have the sleeves worn off the shoulder but you could also wear them on your shoulders as actual straps.

Not only is this dress extremely versatile, it has the most gorgeous details. The Swiss dot fabric is absolutely stunning and extremely soft. I absolutely love the way this dress moves and it is so light weight. It is fully lined so you don’t have to worry about anything being see through either.

SILKY CREPE ROMPER

Next up from Natasha is this gorgeous romper! I just have to say, she totally killed it with her 2 looks. They are my absolute favorites. Other than mine of course. 😂 This coral romper is actually the very first piece I had professionally shot; even over my looks! I am going to do a blog post with all of the professional images so stay tuned for that.

I went with a size small in the romper but definitely needed the XS. Size down in this piece if you order. I absolutely love the fact that there is enough room to wear if you have a long torso like me. It also has a removable waist tie if you wanted to add your own belt. AND it has pockets!! Yes, please!

GINGHAM OFF THE SHOULDER DRESS

This is another beautiful gingham dress from the beautiful Psyche! We were definitely on the same page with our love of gingham! The details on this dress are absolutely stunning. I absolutely love the off-the-shoulder detailing and the larger puff sleeves. The ruffle hem at the bottom is such a beautiful detail too. There is a removable tie that comes with this dress as well.

This dress is also fully lined so you don’t have to worry about anything being see through. I went with the XS in this dress and think it fits absolutely perfect. It also comes in 2 colors!

FLIRTY MINI SKIRT

There are a couple of skirts in the Gibson Look Road Trip batch that come in navy and red with a beautiful floral print on both. I obviously loved the darker hues that have little daisies on it. This skirt is 2 tiered and even has surprise pockets! I had no idea this skirt had pockets until I randomly stumbled upon them and fell in love even more!

I am wearing the size small in this skirt but definitely could have gone with the XS. It does help that this skirt has a drawstring waist so you can tighten it up as much as you need. The length is absolutely perfect too. I am wearing it more high waisted so I can show a little more leg but you can definitely wear this lower around your waist or your hips too. This skirt even went perfectly with my ivory top too!
