Dreaming of golden beaches and sunny afternoons by the pool? Let your outfit do the talking.
It is just two steps away. Summer coziness is almost here, with its comfortable luxury and we know, oh boy do we know…the easy fitting casuals of your wardrobe just can’t wait to come out for air. However, the weather is still tricky, so, how does one achieve to express the summer feeling through a more covered up version? Well, you don’t need to do many things differently. Just adjust the fabrics of your outfit to the season, but play with the small details that scream “summer”.
SIMPLE OUTFITS NEED LOUD, STATEMENT TIMEPEACES, LIKE THIS SISTEM INCOGNITO BY SWATCH
·Color: choose a light color such as sandy beige, the color that is usually accustomed to summer linen suits. Pick a warmer version and you will be set for spring and its unexpected cool patches.
·Shoes: Its is perfectly fine to go without socks around this time of year, we have already expressed how cool this Italian habit looks on nice, toned legs. Get a pair of slip ons in a slightly wintery color and steer away from canvas counterparts.
·Shirt: a long, white linensweater is the perfect replacement for your summer T’s waiting to be worn and adorned once more.
·Shapes: Choose a simple blazer. There is not enough room for double-breasted options, but when it comes to simple and minimal summery preludes you need to go plain. This one here is a personal favorite as it brings with it memories of Ralph Fiennes, roaming around the dessert, desperately in love, in The English Patient. Your trousers will look great if they have the straight legged shape of the season, combined with a short rim that whispers “seaside walks”.
·Accessories: Just one, please. And make it a funky, loud, crazy, funny, pop piece. Give it the spirit you have been holding back all winter, to zap up your outfit with the right accent.
