Summer dressing should be simple, keeping makeup fresh and accessories pared back and minimal. It's all about mixing it up and making your clothes work from day to night, making dressing and packing a breeze. Here are some of my top tips for stying a few of the gorgeous pieces that have been so popular with our Diffusion.ie customers this season.
The Ultimate Summer Dress
There is nothing like finding the perfect summer dress; lightweight luxurious fabric, pretty pattern and so versitile it can be worn from day to night. Pair with comfortable footwear for daytime, and then slip on some heels, grab a clutch and you're ready to go for evening.
I love this Duck Egg Exotic Jungle Print Sundress, and have worn it quite a lot already this season. Here I've styled it with the ice-blue camisole that comes with the matching shirt and my Ma&Lo sliders. I also wear the matching shirt loosely tied over the dress- great for covering the arms. There are still a few of these beautiful dresses left in our Blitz Sale.
Mixing it Up
Take your cool linens from day to night by adding a touch of sparkle. Here's my favourite cream linen trousers teamed with a camisole from Christmas and my summer wardrobe staple- my Strive sandals. A cream cashmere cardigan is a must for throwing over the shoulders on balmy evenings.
Beige has been one of the biggest trends this summer, and when mixed with crisp whites the look is polished and glamorous. These Chloé Stora sand-coloured trousers will give you that Parisian chic vibe in an instant. Pair with nude heels and a white top like this, and keep the overall look classic with an easy up-do and an on-trend nude nail.
I love a hard- working summer wardrobe staple, and this summer I've been living in my Nude of Scandinavia Hedvig zipped sneakers, which are absolutely flying out online but still available in most sizes- so get yours quick! I've also been loving a cool cotton maxi dress, like this gorgeous embroidered white one.
