Every season we pick our favourite items. Here are the six key ‘must have’ pieces for this summer’s warm weather wardrobes. Heat-up!
Set your Legs Free
Wide-legged trousers are an essential of laid-back summer days and nights. They flow with the warm breeze and are a gem for the stylish girl’s wardrobe. If paired with flats, the look is really casual and when teamed with high-heels (pumps or sandals), it’s more sophisticated. Mango introduces this style in monochrome shades that will make you forget your skinny jeans.
Tops, dresses and jackets are influenced by the kimono cut. The strap around the waist, loose fabric and wide sleeves can be spotted on many fashionable clothes racks around the island. Massimo Dutti has a selection of clean and minimal designs and this trendy piece is part of the brand’s summer collection. Grab your twisted kimono and sayonara!
Floral prints are synonymous with sunny days. Applied in all sorts of clothing designs, accessories and even home décor, this pattern is a safe pick. This season, opt for different kinds of flowers to refresh this old-fashioned (not to say tired) print. Women’s Secret has this fresh and summery playsuit to be used after swimming or for a day at the beach.
Espadrilles are the most comfy cool footwear for spring and summer. Originally made in simple canvas fabric, nowadays you can find them in sophisticated materials such as suede and leather. This Dune design brings a mix and match of interesting textures that can be paired to dandy white or khaki shorts.
Hide and Seek
The transparent trend is still a hot pick. Michael Kors came up with a completely transparent, full-length skirt worn over a long white t-shirt. This combo is a great way to introduce the see-through trend to your everyday style without showing much. If you go for a transparent blouse, wear it over a tank top.
A nautical navy, red and white combination says summer out-loud. Sailor inspiration can be spotted in stripes and colour coordinations or even in obvious anchor and marine life stamps. Tommy Hilfiger brings its own interpretation of the maritime influence with a modern flourish. All aboard!
