Summer dresses for success
Noted fashion blogger Nelia Belkova is recognized around town for her unabashed love of print and colour. The influencer’s home base is in Leaside, although she has recently jetted off to Lisbon and Las Vegas. When dressing for high temps, Belkova lives in summer dresses, including at festivals where she’ll pair ’90s-style cami frocks with plenty of sunscreen. Trend-wise, Belkova, who founded Toronto’s Style Blog back in 2009, is currently obsessed with ugly-cool jeans: “My go-to pair is the vintage-wash Levi’s that I raw hemmed myself.” Sunglasses with round frames and see-through lenses are another must. What’s a no-no? Body-con gear. “I prefer my clothes loose and comfy with a little extra room for pizza,” she says. Well said.
Nothing amps an outfit up like a little Chanel bag slung over the shoulder
