These days the only chill we’re getting is from sipping on a frosty Frappuccino. With the temperatures soaring and Mother Nature reassuring us that summer has finally arrived, we’re prepared to shed the layers and swap out for breezy summer fashion pieces. Sticking to classic white and blush tones is always a safe bet, but we dare you to try out some bold prints and coiled jewels. Our favourite summer fashion finds are highlighted below.
Festival season is well on its way and dressing for the occasion can be pretty straightforward – think floral dresses and crochet fixings. When it comes to shoes, it’s open toe season, so lay low during sunny days with earth-toned summer sandals perfect for dancing outdoors. Try a pair that is strappy and leather to add a bohemian vibe without the height.
Take some sartorial inspiration from nature this season and mimic your surroundings with blooming prints. Delicate florals are a sweet addition to your wardrobe but add some tropical flair with a more vibrant selection.
Crochet has ditched its doily associations and plays a textural role in summer stylings. Keep things light and airy with 70s inspired loose-fitting pieces and hanging fringe. Openwork crochet and vintage style patterns are a modern take on the bona fide hot weather fashion trend. However, choosing the right knotted fabric can be a little tricky but we’ve picked out our favourites that show just the right amount of skin.
When we think jewellery, we usually think of silver, gold and of course, diamonds. This summer, leave the heavy metals behind and wrap yourselves in colourful cord confections. If you’re not the type to wear head-to-toe colour, why not try adding these vibrant baubles for some textural intrigue? Whether it’s bungee or macramé, layer these roped options – or braid them together – for an ultimate colour kick.
