Summer is usually a busy season for any mum – most with little time to schedule in a personal shopping day. So many often resort to wearing the same clothes from last summer. Simply by adding one or two pieces from this season you can make your wardrobe pop with style.
There are fabulous vivid colours as well as soft neutrals and pastels. The neon shades of bright blues, yellow, green, orange and hot pink can be seen everywhere from jeans, shoes and handbags. Team the neon’s with a pastel shade or neutral for understated chic.
Big bold prints and separates are huge trends for summer 2012. A delicate printed dress teamed with bold colour statement shoes will give you a fresh youthful look. Wear a printed skirt in a classic shape and tone it down with a plain neutral T-shirt and neutral accessories.
This season we are also seeing stripes – black and white, camel and black, orange and black, orange and purple to name a few. Expect to see lots of stripe, not only on wonderful nautical knit tops and ¾ trousers, but scarves, dresses, handbags, and shoes.
There are few women who can do without a dress in a warm season, which explains why designers have created so many wonderful dresses for season. They come in different lengths, styles and colours providing every woman of any shape or height with an option.
The beautiful dress of this season will be sewed up with the up most intricately, touting pleats, folds, and draping. The sexy one shoulder look is also big this summer.
And yes ladies the maxi dress is still fashionable. It is made of chiffon, taffeta, organza and other sheer fabrics in colourful prints.
One of my favorite everyday dresses is the long striped T-shirt dress. Team it with a pair of sandals and a bright coloured bag and you are ready for the day.
This season trousers flooded of all lengths can be found in bright colours and prints of all sorts. From harem trousers, to skinny and converses, from leopard prints to geometric to crop … It’s all out there!
The most stylish looks for day or evening wear always have an element of the unexpected surprise. So pair the simplest outfit with a pair of amazing statement shoes. Shoes this season can be flats, wedges or killer heels as long as they are the focal point.
A delicate bracelet, luxurious necklace, exquisite earrings or even an unusual hairpin are small pieces, which play such a big role in completing any outfit. A great style tip to remember – it is better to wear one WOW piece than to wear matchy – matchy pieces.
This season, summer fashion is fun, bright and wearable. Mix and match colours, prints and fabrics to get your unique look. Whether you are at work or at home remember to wear styles that are fun and make you happy – go on make a statement.
