I’m a person who reserves a few colours, prints and materials for certain seasons: I love tartan print but I only wear it in the few month before Christmas. Just like I like white jeans – but I would never wear it in winter. But, a light coloured jumper is of course different again. As the weather seems to warm up again – finally! – I love getting the summer clothes out again. The other day when the weather is was really miserable, I was daydreaming about lighter colours to boost my mood and to wear them again. My summer wardrobe is full of light colours and some bright ones and I also love statement prints. I’m not really a person who only buys clothes for a short season, I tend to wear my favourite pieces for years. I found, that with a some summer colours and prints you simply can’t go wrong.
It’s probably my all time favourite one, I always wear all the whites I can during the summer. Obviously, it matches with any other colour and it is more comfortable to wear latest White Company offers in the heat than dark colours.
Sand or light mocha
They especially relaxed but stylish at the same time, especially when combined with white, a few shiny accessories like silver coloured shoes or turquoise jewellery.
Both the light shade of coral or the deep shade of it are a rare match to all hair colours and skin tones. Coral just work for everyone even if it’s a statement item or just an accessory. Or even a lipstick!
Soft ice cream and candy colours are back in mainstream fashion again with the 80’s revival but they never really disappeared. We just didn’t combine to many of them at the same time until now. So if you really like pastels – now is the time to go for it.
Lots of people adore turquoise – including me. It’s the colour of the sea so no other colour can represent summer better! Again, it works for every hair colours and skin tones.
There are a few timeless but cool print which will be always in fashion. Like the national Breton stripes, flamingo print, pineapple print, tropical print (great for festivals!), palm leaf or tree print.
Which one is your favourite this summer?
