While you put away your stack of woolies, pack your last season’s over the knee (OTK) boots and change your skincare regime to something more suitable to the current temperature, we help you with the inevitable: get your wardrobe summer-ready.
Keeping in tandem with your comfort factor and the latest trends in fashion, here’s what we think your closet should look like this summer.
Printed maxi dresses
If you’ve been abreast with the latest trends in the fashion world, you’ll know that maxi dresses are a summer staple! However, this year go bold with some tropical prints. An ankle-length dress in varied cuts and silhouettes makes for a chic look. Go crazy with the accessories or keep it simple, a maxi dress never fails to disappoint.
From formalwear to a cocktail outfit, jumpsuits are inarguably one of the most versatile outfits. A structured jumpsuit with slim-fit bottoms when paired with a smart blazer, stilettoes and nude lipstick is perfect for important meetings and presentations. Skip the blazer, go for shoulder-duster earrings and a bold lip colour and voila! You’re ready to dance the night away. We suggest your closet should have a handful of these.
Summer dressing has become synonymous with vibrant hues. Even before we were mesmerized by Emma Stone in La La Land, we knew we were going to love it when we saw her in that bright yellow dress on the poster. Cheery yellows, eye-popping pinks and sunset oranges are just some of the colours we associate with summer. If you want to be bang on trend, take cue from Pantone’s colour of the year, greenery, as a symbol of new beginnings for your closet as well.
Looking for some summer inspiration? Think of Coachella-inspired fabrics like crochet and lace to help you sail through this season. Crochet crop tops are having a major fashion moment currently. Wear them with denim shorts and sneakers to channel your inner Kendall Jenner. You can also take cue from your favourite celebs and dress up in summery lace dresses for a brunch with family and friends.
If you take our advice, we insist you invest in the season’s most fun trend – Doodle denims. From jeans to denim shorts and dungarees, this trend has taken the fashion industry by storm. Tone down your look by pairing these amusing pairs of jeans with a simple white tee and matching sneakers. Go for a casual top knot to channel a casual-cool look.
