Adding colour

Summer is synonymous with bright colours and patterns, but it’s also the perfect time of year to celebrate a love of simple palettes and neutral shades. The beauty of summer dressing is that you can mix and match pieces and outfits to suit your mood or the occasion and try different trends. One day you may fancy throwing on a classic white cotton summer dress while another, you may want to go all-out with colour and opt for a bright pink, yellow, orange or green dress or a vibrant printed co-ord. Choose colours that make you feel happy and suit your skin tone. It’s a great idea to try different colours before you buy clothes to see if they suit you. You may find that you love a piece on the hanger but the colour doesn’t flatter you, or that you assume that a certain shade won’t suit but it looks amazing on. Be open to experimenting. 

Catering to different occasions

Summer is a time when many of us enjoy a wide range of activities and social occasions. From chilling out at the beach or the park with a picnic to glamming up for a day at the races or a wedding, it’s important to think about your diary when shopping for additions to your wardrobe. If you are attending an event, and there’s a smart dress code, give yourself time to look for outfits and try different looks. You may want to opt for chic party dresses or floor-length gowns for a formal wedding or a ball, or you might want to explore different ideas, such as a tailored suit or a matching skirt and top. For the races, have fun with accessories and choose pieces that are comfortable to wear. Short suits, lightweight summer dresses and jumpsuits are brilliant options. 

Embracing summer trends

It’s always good to add seasonal pieces to a capsule wardrobe to revamp your summer looks and embrace new trends. This summer, the hottest trends include floral prints, bright blues, sheer clothing, crochet, cut-out tops and dresses, sunset hues and fringing.


Accessorising is an easy, affordable way to freshen up your wardrobe. As temperatures rise, swap bobble hats, chunky scarves, boots and dark-coloured bags for sunglasses, statement jewellery, bright clutch, tote or cross-body bags, silk scarves and fedoras, straw hats or caps.

Style Icon – Halle Bailey

The Style Icon for the month is the lovely Halle Bailey from The Little Mermaid. We recently watched The Little Mermaid and I really enjoying it. It was very entertaining, funny, colourful, with the same fab storyline as the original. Have you seen it?

I have been a fan of this talented young woman for sometime now. Halle Bailey is a bundle of beauty and brains, and she is always super stylish! The 23-year-old songbird is popularly known as 1/2 of ChloexHalle, and has been making waves on her own as well for many years.

Halle Bailey has an amazing sense of fashion. Her personal signature style stands out for the right reasons. It is always fun spotting this style icon on the red carpet because I know her looks are always on point.

Style Icon – Halle Bailey

It is always refreshing to find a young stylish woman who is true to herself. Halle Bailey always phenomenon. Her signature locs also add a nice twist to her looks. I love how she wears her signature locs so much and I wish she wore her hairs in the original colour in The Little Mermaid. 

Halle and Chloe Bailey chatted about fashion and all with Vogue France and I found the interview very interesting. Here is an excerpt from the interview –

“Fashion holds a huge place in our everyday life, both professionally, and personally. When it comes to our artistry, fashion always becomes a huge statement. It allows us to express ourselves, and even a particular song to help shine it in a new light. We love the way fashion helps us complete the story we are trying to tell; in appearances, performances, and music videos.”

I can see how big fashion and style is for them and I like how expressive they are with their looks. You can read the full interview here.
