Shorts are undoubtedly the staple go-to
piece of clothing to wear on those hot and humid days. They could be a short
micro version or a baggy fit, even a fluid knee-length culottes counts. Instead
of pairing it with your usual favourites, try on a tailored top, something with
texture perhaps, or a structured blouse. Whatever it is, keep those cotton tees
You might be overwhelmed by the plethora of
prints available each season. In contrast, what goes under the radar are the
fabrics, textured fabrics to be exact. Tweed, bouclé, mesh, or lace, they run
the gamut. Here’s a beautiful matelassé jacquard dress that we have taken a
keen liking to, because fabrics are more than just printed, matte or shiny.
A shirt dress is more than a shirt dress
with Aquilano.Rimondi onboard. You may or may not need another tailored white
shirt but a printed silk shirt dress might fit into your wardrobe just fine.
This one comes in a multi-colour with contrast detailing and an unassuming frog
print for added panache. The floral appliqué is just icing on the cake.
Who said anything about sheer tops being a
big no-no in the office? The rule here is to wear a matching camisole
underneath and keep your bottoms simple. Still not feeling modest enough? Layer
with a cardigan or throw a jacket over your shoulders. A broderie anglaise top
with just enough coverage is your best bet. Just don’t do a Kris Jenner and
wear sheer pants.
The knit top is one versatile and comfy number
for when you want to dress down. An easy choice for women on the go and warm
enough for the air-conditioned indoors, update your typical knit top with this
embellished sequin Peter Pan collar top from N21. Match it with a sleek pencil
skirt and you’ll be channeling a simple-chic look in an instant.
