07 Dec Summer Styling for “Us”
Summer has arrived and along with it the usual amount of “barely there”outfits that can make us feel that there really is an “us” and a “them”. There are those who can wear the tight mini-skirt with jut a hint of midriff showing and then there’s the rest of “us”. We are a complex lot, this second group of women. For whatever reason we feel we fall into this category there is one thing that holds us all together; we still want to look stylish and feel great.
Importantly, in the midst of the summer heat, being comfortable should be taken into consideration too, and thankfully all of our needs are being met this season. Keep cool this summer, despite covering up a little more, with floaty dresses that are easy to throw on. As well as protecting you from the harsh Australian sun, they are perfect to team with flats or dress up in the evening with a pair of heels or wedges.
Smart coordinates in cool natural fibres, simple prints and stripes; the trick is to think loose and flowing for a carefree and comfortable summer season. A relaxed fit dress is a must for every wardrobe, but don’t think it can only be reserved for lounge wear, this season think embroidered, embellished, stripes and florals, giving you room for a playful casual feel or a bit of dramatic night-time glamour. Uneven hemlines are still making a show, again acceptable for both day and night.
