Trend Report: Dressing up Simple Summer Tops

Trend Report: Dressing up Simple Summer Tops

Summer is finally here, time to bring on the staples; summer tees and cute vests. And thanks
to a gorgeous selection of summer accessories, we can dress up simple tops with beautiful, dangling neck pieces, transforming day time outfits into stylish ensambles.

Always on trend, Woolworths has a wonderful selection of pretty necklaces that will compliment any look. Whether you’re heading to the beach, looking casual-cool on a summer’s day or going out for cocktails, this trend is so easy to do, and we’ll show you how in this week’s
Trend Report…

On the beach

Looking stylish on the beach, especially with the sun beating down on you can be tricky. Less is more, and in this case, adding a simple necklace to a plain coloured vest will make all the difference.

Pair pink with red! These colours look great with nothing but a summer tan! Add a simple double blue necklace (R99.95) to an otherwise plain outfit and you’re set. The brown and pink hat (R120) and this oversized Studio.W bag (R250) finish off this look in style.
This pink and blue vest with zip detail from Woolworths RE: (R199) goes perfectly with this long beaded necklace (R99.95) and these green and orange beaded bracelets (R69.95 each). Add a coloured hat (R125) and you’re good to go!

Colour blocking cool

Colour blocking is this season’s must-do fashion trend. Snazz up these short, simple tops by layering them over longer tops and adding a long statement necklace.

The same top also comes in this summer essential turquoise blue. This time we layered it over another essential, the Woolworths longer length vest with lace detail (R99.95) and added this silver neckpiece (R89.95) to finish off the look.
This orange top (R89.95) with cute pocket detail looks colour-blocking-cool layered over a simple purple tee (R199). The purple picks up again thanks to this long, lightweight necklace (R99.95) and the bag (R150) just adds that extra block of colour.

From beach to bar

This look is so versatile you can take your outfit from beach to bar in one simple step. Just add a long necklace to an otherwise plain outfit, and you’ve nailed the look!

We love orange-on-red, with a little black peeking out. This orange top (R160) is a StyleScoop favourite, layered over a Woolworths Longer Length black vest with lace peeking out at the bottom (R99.95). To give the look a bit of nighttime glitz and glam we added this lightweight, layered gold necklace (R99.95)
For sparkle without the fuss, this RE: top (R325) is a must. Pair it with this dangling necklace (R89.95). We couldn’t help but add this gorgeous sun hat (R125).

Casual Cool

Long tops worn with necklaces add a bit of style to even the most casual of outfits.

This long, flowy blue top (R120) layered over a longer length vest (R99.95) is jazzed up with this pretty leaf neckpiece (R69.95).
Another StyleScoop favourite is this long, flowy orange top with pocket detail (R120) layered again, over the Longer Length black vest (R99.95) and finished with two necklaces (R150 and R79.95).

More trend stoppers

This cute top from Woolworths RE: (R299) doesn’t need any neck accessorising. The print has a built in chain effect. We think it looks super cool paired with this glitzy metallic sling purse (R180), also by RE: and these very trendy Aviator sunnies (R180).

You can also accessorize your hips. Check out these super cute PVC pink and orange belts (R99.95). They come in a set of two and we just love ’em! The top from RE: (R225) has a pretty heart graphic and the bag (R150) picks up the colours beautifully.

Must have, must have, must have…

This pair of cute red shorts from Woolworths RE: is another summer essential. In all our looks above, we used this pair of shorts. They are sexy, stylish and go with everything from plain pieces to brightly coloured ensembles. Get them in the RE: department (R350).

We hope you’ve enjoyed this week’s Trend Report and that you’ll be rocking out the summer with Woolies’ fab selection of summer accessories.
