One of my favourite things about summer is the chance to wear bold, colorful prints after a long winter’s jean & sweater binge. I forget during the winter months that prints are such a pick-me-up. Like getting a dose of much-needed vitamin D, putting on a pretty print dress releases Serotonin. It’s a fact.
Here are a few pieces that I’m in love with right now from the shop, which could gracefully transition from summer to fall, and even into the bleak, colour-starved winter.
Metallics never go out of style. Gold – worn to accessorize an outfit, or as the main event itself – always resonates with style and distinction. The Egyptians knew it, the Greeks knew it, and we all know those 60s swingers knew it. Certainly gold is eye-catching, but something about its shimmering, light-diffusing nature adds an air of luxe subtlety to an outfit (if worn in the right proportions and styles, of course). Gold can be used to make a statement, or works equally well as a supporting player in an otherwise toned-down look. The possibilities are endless, so go for the gold! (Too much? I just like cheesy puns, OK?)
