INSPIRATION AND ADVICE
EVERYBODY IS LOVING THE SUNSHINE
By Ludovica Parisi, 30 August 2019
The last days of summer are here, along with your final chance to enjoy a gelato under the hot sun. But what’s the flavour du jour? Well, if the streets of the recent Copenhagen Fashion Week are anything to go by, it's lemon sorbet. Yep, from fluffy jumpers to denim co-ords, the style set have been loving them some yummy banana shades. Here's six ways to try it yourself.
Feeling lazy but still have a full day of work to attend to? Upgrade your smart-meets-casual game with a baggy yellow hoodie and a silky slip skirt. It's the perfect outfit to make your Monday morning as easy as it can possibly be – and ensure your look pops in the meeting room, too. Just finish the vibe off with a pair of red strappy sandals for polish and a trapeze bag for the post-work ‘aperitivo’.
Weekends are all about minimising getting-dressed time to snooze a little more while still coming up with a great outfit. And a wrapped jumpsuit in an ochre shade is ideal. It’s easy to wear wherever you are heading, and the colour is as brave as your plans to win your boozy brunch. Most importantly, it’s trans-seasonal for all your summer-to-autumn needs. Layer it with a striped long-sleeve top and kitten heels for a preppy touch.
For a more laidback look, opt for wide-leg trousers. Keep it cute and classic with a floral blouse to match the colour palette and complete with a pair of box fresh sneakers. Then, it's time to play with accessories – make your neck shine with golden chains (the more the better) and a Jacquemus-inspired purse belt. Parfait!
Breaking up from your long-term relationship with black is a lot to handle, so we’re not expecting you to go all in with yellow just yet. However, wouldn't a loose-cut roll neck make it all a bit easier? Go low-key and tuck it into a long neutral skirt, adding some white western boots. Last but not least, don't forget an ever-trending baguette bag to fit all your essentials.
Soak up the sun
We know, one minute it's sunny, the next it's raining, then it’s cloudy, then it's sunny again... But you can always stay on step ahead and bring along a yellow raincoat to fight the weather for you (and make sure there's always some sun rays on the go). For an extra fun touch, add contrasting accessories, like a pair of rainbow stiletto heels and a red mini bag.
Eternal sunshine of the spotless outfit
When life gives you lemons, just squeeze them and make sure you get a great outfit out of that lemonade. If you are 110% into the trend, then a tonal tuxedo will amp up your line-up – and give you a good kick of Vitamin C, too. Pair it with black cowboy boots and shades to complete your work.
