When summer comes around you can breathe a sigh of relief when it comes to your wardrobe. There’s less need to worry about layering, heavy jackets, or cumbersome footwear like boots.
Clothing becomes simpler and lighter. It also becomes more colourful and coastal. Look for luxurious soft fabrics and subtle yet on-trend prints and palettes for options that will see you through the season.
Dressing for the Occasion
Summer is the time for trips to the beach, cocktails with friends and long afternoons spent in the sun. It’s the perfect time to kick back and relax. Your wardrobe should ideally reflect this. It should be easy, breezy and adaptable.
Look for items that spell versatility. They could be equally at home over swimwear or paired with heels at the bar when the sun goes down. Simple shift dresses look great with sandals or espadrilles and a sun hat during the day or paired with glam accessories for evening.
The summer season is the time to spend with friends and family with minimal fuss. It’s the time to enjoy yourself, to feel stylish without too much effort. Being able to dress in classic, everyday quality pieces means more leisure time and more time to spend with the people that matter. It’s always an incredibly busy time, so knowing you have your attire sorted makes it that little less stressful.
Fun, Flirty Pieces
Style takes a turn for the slightly more frivolous when it comes to summer. The mood is more light-hearted and more casual. We dress to mirror this. Include some pieces in your wardrobe that will inject some colour and movement to your look. This could come in the form of beautiful kaftan, a stylish jumpsuit or a flowing maxi dress.
Quality fabrics will always keep your look classy. The print that you choose allows you to display your individuality. Designs in pretty pastel hues and sunset colours are the perfect fit for summer days filled with blue skies and balmy tropical nights. Lightweight options like chiffon wrap pants provide no compromise on style yet provide utmost comfort.
Accessorise with Ease
Accessories add that little bit extra to draw the eye to your inimitable sense of style. They are the finishing touch, the icing on the cake and the cherry on top. Allow your wardrobe to fit your overall aesthetic. So, look for pieces that can be easily accessorised.
Summer is the time to have a little fun with your accessories. Try some funky sunglasses or some earrings in the hottest styles of the season. Rose gold is continuing its dominion as the ‘style de jour’. Metallic elements are big right now. Sun hats and lightweight scarves add a touch of mystery.
Remember, the summer season is all about letting your hair down. Enjoy yourself and embrace the relaxed, unique you.
