White Heat

January 19th, 2011 by , and  |  Published in Headline, The Look  |  2 Comments

Summer showed up fashionably late to the party this year, but now that it’s here it’s dying to be heard. When the mercury gets this high it can be hard to find sartorial inspiration. My advice? Stick to the Summer classic - white, and get creative. Layer light textured fabrics, or do the unexpected by wearing knits and long pants; Summer doesn’t have to just be about little dresses and ripped shorts.

My favourite picks would have to be a cropped crochet top, and soft tailored shorts in a breezy fabric. Team with chunky shoes in tan or camel (THE colour to invest in right now) and add some bold accessories to really make the crisp whites pop. Just make sure not to spill your smoothie and you’re good to go!
