Effortless Summer Style

There’s really nothing better than looking like you rolled out of bed looking as fabulous you do. Despite the time you spent pairing pieces together, selecting the perfect lip shade, changing necklaces and bracelets, making your signature expression in front of the mirror (we all have one) and trying two different pairs of shoes on to find the best match, that effortless look is always achievable.

More than any other season, summer demands a no-fuss approach. This is the time to embrace minimalism, forget the stacks of jewelry and overdone ensemble. The heavy humidity encourages flowy, breathable fabrics, simple jewelry, fuss-free, natural makeup and outfits that scream summer-here-I-come and yes-I-just-rolled-out-of-bed-in-this.

Whether you opt for a ladylike look or have a flare for the edge, lace is sure to find its way into your summer wardrobe in some way, shape or form. Chambray is that perfect lightweight fabric for a casual look, tied at your navel and paired with sky high platforms for a laid back style that’s put together and fun. Keep jewels simple and don’t fuss with your hair – get outside and enjoy the rays instead!

A silk blouse will solve any wardrobe conundrum, versatile enough for a day at the office or a night on the town. Tucked in loosely with a pair of sorbet skinnies gives this look a summer twist that is purely uncomplicated. Chic with a pair of neutral stilettos or relaxed with flat sandals, statement sunnies will finish off the look for an easy breezy day with no fuss.

The maxi is certainly more popular than its midi cousin, but this style is arguably more flattering on all body types, and gives you that soft, angelic look that is just so summer-ready. Opting for a loose-fitting top rather than a tight tank will amplify the care-free look with a hint of hippie, ideal for a day in the park, at the beach or in the city.
