Summer is finally making its way to Canada! With the temperatures
touching the high 20’s, it is the perfect time to visit a park, drink lemonade
and have porch parties. However, it is also necessary to get our
wardrobes summer ready and put away all the winter jackets and boots.
This week, our style expert and wardrobe consultant Jennifer Ziliotto
brings you her top five tips to improve your summer style.
1. Be mindful of the fabric - choosing fabrics that are cooling and let your
body breathe is key during the summers. Fast fashion from high-street
stores is mostly made from poly-blends that simply aren’t breathable, and
will often hold on to sweat stains. You may want to consider fabrics like
cotton, linen and silk, that are light and easy on the skin.
2. Buy slightly bigger shoes - all materials expand during the summer,
including the ones our shoes are made of. Materials like leather, canvas
and suede definitely stretch, so going half a size up will be enough.
However, for shoes made of faux leather, plastic, or any other man-made
material, go a full size up. Your feet want to feel comfortable and blister-
free this summer!
3. Add florals to your wardrobe - no better time than summer to stock your
wardrobe with some floral inspiration! Start with a scarf if you feel
intimidated, or dive right into the floral trend with a bold pair of printed
pants. If floral is your jam, you can even buy a pair of floral separates! A
floral piece is definitely something worth investing in.
4. Accessorize - dress simple and let a high fashion watch bring out your
style! Flash those gorgeous oversized sunglasses, carry a hand woven
bag, wear long necklaces, a hat or a pair of stylish clogs. Let accessories
be your friends this summer, trust us, you won't regret it!
5. Wear pastels, stripes and corals - Bubble-gum pink, aquamarine, baby
blue and yellow are all your go-to colors for the summer. Corals are great
too, and can be a really nice color for nail varnish and lipsticks too. You
may also want to try mixing stripes with print to add that cool factor to
your dressing, like pairing a striped t-shirt with a floral skirt. Don't be
afraid to experiment!
Be bold and brave with your summer style, and have fun flaunting your
summer looks! Our style expert Jennifer Ziliotto is also available to
