I know it is difficult to select just 5 items from amidst the world full of beautiful and fashionable products. I precisely faced the same dilemma while choosing my favorite top 5 articles of fashion for summer. I kept adding and deleting stuff and took one extra day to post this article (I was aiming to post this yesterday). I wanted to give my readers the very best, of course!!
So, here is my list (in no specific order):
Stripes are all set to soar the summer temperature already. Think Marc Jacobs, also check out my post here. Stripes are everywhere this summer from tops to bottoms to dresses, even shoes and bags. Although this list is in no specific order, I couldn’t resist being slightly biased towards stripes. A loose full sleeve top and a short and fitted knit dress (both from Mango) is how I would like to dress stripes my way. The idea is to go casual and comfortable with stripes.
I am probably the first one to wear the romantic trend (see my post here) of summer considering temperature is already way above 30 degrees in my part of the world. Although this soft and feminine trend is not quite my style, I was quite thrilled with the look that I tried out. This is how I wore the romantic trend. Now I want to wear this trend more often, may be not in a very delicate way, but I want to start out by buying this pretty lace dress from Forever New.
pop colors are my favorites and I want them everywhere this summer. In my clothes, in accessories, in nail colors, just about everywhere. Since I already have a good collection of pop colors in my clothing items as I have been wearing them for quite some time, getting some pop colored bags will just add more colors to my wardrobe. These bags are from selfridges.com. I don’t know if I will buy exactly these, but some bags in pop colors for sure.
White is seen in almost every designer’s collections for Spring/Summer 2013. Its the color of the season and what a lovely color it is! I have an ongoing infatuation for blacks, whites and reds and a white blazer is a must-have for my summer wardrobe. It can be combined with most of the outfits and is a great cover up when the weather gets a bit chilly at times. I picked this blazer from Mango but similar blazers are available almost everywhere.
Last but not the least, jewelry. The bigger the better. Gold, silver and copper teamed with reds, yellows and oranges (or any other color in the world) is a must, must and must-have for summer. These pieces are an assortment from Cubus and Forever New and aren’t they beautiful??!!
