FLORALS can carry you all through the year and for sum­mer they are all about hav­ing fun with fash­ion and em­brac­ing the joy and ro­mance of warmer days and longer nights. Look for breezy flo­ral styles in white base tones in lighter, nat­u­ral fab­rics like cot­ton or try a silk style which also has a sexy sheen for evenings. Pair a bold printed wrap dress with a metallic san­dal, or a heel with a strong colour from your flo­ral print, for a dif­fer­ent take on hol­i­day shine.

I’m per­son­ally lov­ing this sum­mer’s match­ing set trend. Not only are they a fun way to amp up your fes­tive dress­ing with­out reach­ing for an­other cock­tail dress, they take the ‘what do I wear with this skirt’ anx­i­ety away, and they are prac­ti­cal to wear all day and then into the night with the sim­ple change of a heel. And if you weren’t al­ready con­vinced, you can mix and match the pieces with your work and week­end sep­a­rates. Look for sets in beau­ti­ful fab­rics like linen or crepe and be bold with a spot of stripe pat­tern.

Whether it’s an el­e­gant din­ner or a night out with the girls, throw­ing on a sim­ple slip dress is such easy chic. The sleek sil­hou­ette, silken fab­ric and lux­u­ri­ous fin­ishes can eas­ily em­pha­sise your fem­i­nin­ity. If you’re not con­fi­dent with a straight-fall­ing style look for ver­sions with pan­els un­der the bust and across the waist to break up the col­umn shape. Fear­ful of look­ing like you are wear­ing a nightie? With the right ac­ces­sories you will look stylish and so­phis­ti­cated and an added biker or denim jacket on your shoul­ders will give an air of cool.

White would have to be the most per­fect hol­i­day colour. It’s fes­tive, ver­sa­tile, lux­u­ri­ous, and in our steamy sum­mers, cool to wear. Kiss your LBD good­bye and make the LWD (Lit­tle White Dress) your go-to piece to live in all sum­mer long. Whether its lace em­bel­lished, airy and flow­ing, midi or maxi length what typ­i­fies the white dress for this sum­mer is that it re­quires min­i­mal or no styling, which makes it an ex­cel­lent choice for a go-to look that is re­laxed and ap­pro­pri­ate when time is tight.

En­joy the cel­e­bra­tions and re­lax know­ing you’ve got your out­fits sorted. In­sta­gram @cas­sander­son­_style or visit www.cas­sander­son­
