Paint your days a bold hue of red, orange, green, yellow, hot pink, electric blue and everything in between! Be daring enough to turn every head in the room with wild splashes of color in single tone, multi-colored, patterned, ruffled, skin-tight or loose and airy outfits. Choose a color for every upbeat and exciting summer mood, and even choose matching accessories. It’s time to stand out!
If you’re going for a quick midday outdoors snack in nature, or planning a day-long excursion with a picnic in between, choose clothes that are airy, comfortable and will keep you cool, while looking your stylish best. Enjoy your day out in a mini or long dress, square pants and t-shirt, or a comfy jumpsuit. Keep your feet relaxed in a pair of sandals and don’t forget your sunglasses.
Trip to the Mountains
For a trip to the mountains, you will want to layer your clothing. The weather might be warm during the day, but temperatures could drop in the late afternoon and the evenings are even cooler. Light jackets, summer knits, pants and long skirts will help keep you both cool and warm. Choose from an array of styles ranging from bohemian to modern cuts; or vary according to your mood or the occasion. Mix and match, the sky is the limit.
With summer pool parties, beach parties, rooftop parties and private gatherings, can your wardrobe keep up? From feminine and classic to downright playful, sexy and daring, the choices for your evening attire are simply endless. Long and short dresses, midriff baring tops, see-through lace dresses and dangerously tight pantsuits are sure to turn the heat on your summer nights.
Capture the uniqueness and beauty of one of the most romantic fashion capitals of the world. Look effortlessly chic in clothing that embodies the spirit of a city that entices you to fall in love with fashion every day. Choose from perfectly tailored pants, sleek and dressy silhouettes, blazers and shorts combinations, sexy wedges and heels, and minimal or flashy accessories and bags.
When in Rome
Ah, the sheer gorgeousness, raw emotion and vibrance of Rome! Get styled up in the spirit of this world-class fashion city in cool casuals, dressier ensembles, or trendy and funky designs. Whether you choose to sit back and sip on your latte at a quaint corner café, take a trip to the museum, enjoy an afternoon shopping with your girlfriends, or an evening out at a sea-side restaurant, opt for embossed fabrics, stripes, monochrome outfits, ethnic prints, and cool colors and nudes.
