This season, your wardrobe should scream one word loud and clear—relax! For summer, our wardrobes should hold clothes that are comfortable, cool and lightweight. Wear your T-shirts with short, flowing skirts and soft cover-ups, to keep away the occasional evening breeze. Three quarter-length loose fitted pants can be worn with cowl neck T-shirts and hooded jackets.
Keep layering defined, yet subtle. You can use contrasting colours, but maintain a neutral palette. And in keeping with the volume trend, which seems to be seeping into the next few seasons as well, the bottoms can be with pockets, or the tops can bubble.
If you have to buy a few branded pieces, be sure to pick up a cotton tee from Louis Vuitton’s Love collection, a pair of shorts from Missoni or bermudas from Guess Jeans and accessorize with big chunky bangles. And for a really chic edge, buy a few Lacoste T-shirts—they’re stylish, practical and always in fashion.
With this relaxed look, let your hair and make-up look laid back as well—tan, healthy and glowing is the way to go. Beach hair, once again, seems to be the hair to have, but this time around, it should be brushed out to look healthy and shiny. So, the summer is here and fashion is telling you to turn it down a notch—just breathe easy.
