Here Comes the Sun
With summer in full swing here in northern hemisphere, here are some of the hottest summer trends straight from the streets of London.
Maxi dresses are summer’s answer to the classic LBD. And even better they pretty much suit all body shapes so boho’s go hippe floral and urban warriors go wild with animal print.
Summer is all about comfort ergo wedges are this season’s shoe of choice.
There’s a lot of “festival” fashion on the streets of London, which includes a whole lotta straw hats. From tribys to fedoras, hats are hot.
Undone hair adds to that carefree summer feel, and lucky for us girls it takes just minutes to style. Loose tousled waves give a “beachy” feel, and disheveled top knots take the summer vibe into the evening. (lanvin girls)
The New French
Nails are the hottest accessory right now, and bold is better. Mixing pinks and reds (yes that’s paint one finger pink, the next red, then pink…you get the picture) and whitening half moons is trending everywhere. I’ve also seen a spin on the classic french tip – dark nails with metallic tips. Top colours include red, orange, yellow, teal, slate – there doesn’t seem to be an ‘it’ colour this year.
Bright pinks and corals are big this summer. Statement lips mean understated eyes – stick to lashings of mascara and winged eyeliner.
What to wear when meeting Obama and the first lady? Kate decided that this beige Reiss Shola dress was the one, and I wonder if she realised would a profound royal decision it would be. This dress was actually so last season, and Reiss have since restocked the “princess dress” due to an overwhelming demand. Head over to reissonline.com to preorder yours now.
