Celebrate summer’s latest fashion stars
There are lots of summer months left for us, so let’s clear some space in our wardrobes and celebrate summer’s latest fashion stars!!
Nineties dresses are back, it’s time to try a “cold shoulder shirt” and we’re going to be partying in our Pyjamas.
As seen at Calvin Klein, Chloe and Burberry, slinky slip dresses are having a renaissance. The key to this look is all in the layering- try it with a crisp white T shirt, waterfall trench/cardigan and trainers.
Style tip: Summer’s biggest hit, try the new berry lip.
The lace dress
As seen at Burberry, Chloe and Rodarte, no summer wardrobe is complete without an LLD (little Lace dress). Add a white tuxedo jacket and Victorian boots for the night or bomber jacket and slider sandals for a day.
Style tip: Ankle ties storm to the top of the style stakes. Keep hemlines cropped to show them off!!
The Louche Suite
As seen at Stella Mccartney, Joseph and Givenchy. Suits are loosening up and emerging patterned, relaxed and silky. This is your new party favourite…
Style tip: Wear floral or paisley pyjamas for parties and pair with metallic platform heels.
The dramatic blouse
As seen at Zimmerman and Mother of Pearl, Leg-o-mutton sleeves (wide at the top, tapering to the wrist) off the shoulder, bodices, bows, ruching and ruffles- the summer shirt is anything but boring.
Style tip: Update a Victorian high-neck shirt with a leather skirt and the new-season “sock bots” (ankle length, tight and stretchy).
Style tip: Wear a Caribbean –print cold-shoulder shirt with frayed-hem jeans and extra long earrings. Its official shoulders are the new erogenous zone.
The eclectic skirt
As seen at Gucci and Prada, introducing Summer’s headliner, the Gucci inspired opulent A line- it’s key to your season’s update. Choose big bloom prints, team with flashes of metallic or dress down with suede.
Style tip: It’s all about OTT earrings. The bigger, bolder and more bejeweled the better.
As seen at Chloe, take inspiration from the Chloe collection and invest in the most versatile piece of the season – jogger pants. Smart for work, elegant for evening and the perfect alternative to jeans at the weekend, they’re a wardrobe winner.
Satin and Silky fabrics will elevate track trousers for evening. Add chiffon and super high heels for an effortlessly glamorous 1970’s look.
Go for neutral black or navy and wear with a crisp white shirt and loafers.
The tracksuit is your new weekend staple – yes, really. Soften the sportiness with a pretty shirt and summer sandals.
