Style It: Summer Daze

The weather has been pretty erratic, vacillating between hot & humid and wet & humid. But Summer Days are here (apparently). This issue, our Curator puts together four looks that keep you cool and chic without looking sloppy. 

Smart Fabrics

With the sweltering heat, the right fabrics to wear are of utmost importance. Opt for linens and high tech materials that can keep the sweat at bay.

Easy and Breazy

Casual and comfortable does not mean boring, a neutral toned silk dress with interesting detail or texture will set you apart from the crowd immediately. Pair it with a straw hat to shield the sun and brightly coloured espadrilles to make sure you’re prepared for a day of walking at the beach.

Chilly Daze

It may get chilly at the start of summer or maybe you’re one of the lucky few who is attending a music festival which goes on to the late night. The trusty and classic washed denim jacket is a must have in every summer wardrobe for its functionality and style.

Colour Me Summer

Summer is the best time to bring out the loudest colours and tropical prints as everyone is trying to outdo each other with vibrant hues. Don’t be afraid to go all out, save those dull colours for another season.
