Summer Style Guide
We’re all familiar with the rigors of summer dressing: the sun, high humidity, and the constant looming threat of a thunderstorm. But there is another, more pressing problem facing us all when it comes to looking good in the heat. How do we put together a summer wardrobe that looks great but doesn’t feel like it’s melting off us? Here, we’ve curated a go-to guide of summer styles that’ll keep you cool and chic all season, from Marina Mirage’s favourite boutiques and designers. There’s something for everyone this summer!
It’s all about the fabric!
Ditch the jeans and opt for breathable lightweight fabrics – we’re loving linen this season and so are Gazman and Element. Linen is one of the year’s best-selling fashion trends for good reason: it’s light and comfortable with an effortless flare. Linen is so versatile that it can be worn as a shirt, pants, dress or even a beach-cover up – making for the perfect everyday fabric that can easily be dressed up or down!
Enjoy the warm weather with pastel hues by choosing sun-washed colours that make for a stylish statement, while keeping you cool and comfortable. Besides its summery feel, there is some science behind it (believe it or not) light coloured clothing reflects most of the visible wavelengths which, in turn, means that it absorbs less heat! Check out Gant and Jay Pask for their latest collections. Tip: Yellow and green are the key colours of the season.
With the new season, comes new summer footwear trends to try. This year is all about the carefree style and comfort that shoes should offer. Stop by Holiday Clothing to view their latest footwear, they’re sure to make you feel like you’re on vacation all season long.
