Though the weather here in Sydney is dreary we are still prepping our wardrobes for the Summer season (although I will admit to buying several heavy coats off Shopbop, why I don’t know).
Our top tips to street style worthy summer outfits are:
1. Add some leather.
Leather does not just have to be for the chilly season. Think vests, shorts or leather skirts for a touch of luxury in summer. Pare it back with a classic white tee and some black heels for the perfect casually chic street style worthy look.
2. Invest in a suit.
Summer is hot, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have to dress up for the office. A lighter weight suit in summer colours- think navy paired back with white, or cream will make all the difference. If you can invest in matching short suits and skirt suits too!
3. Mix your prints
If you’re scared of this look- think spots and stripes, opt for prints that are bold in design but not in colour. If you’re feeling out there just clash away, think hawaiian mixed with houndstooth….or whatever works for you!
4. Buy a full midi skirt.
It’s a bit of a misconception that fuller midi skirts only work on 6 foot tall models, and are not intended for the petite or the curvy. Here its all about length, fit and cut. If you’re already curvy, try something that uses a lighterweight material so it doesnt create so much volume. Petite girls should team a full midi skirt with a crop top or tighter fitting top to add shape.
5. Black and white.
Always a winning combo, but it can get a little tired so revamp your look with statement accessories. A brooch, a clutch, statement heels or a headpiece will bring modern flair to your classically chic look.
6. White on white on white.
All white errrything! This can work in so many ways, its really about what works for you. Its fresh, it looks amazing with a tan and is so on trend. Team this look with luxe gold accessories for the perfect summertime look.
