With summer teasing itself to be here with this arrival of lush but rather humid weather, you wouldn’t be wrong to wonder what exactly to wear to keep cool but remain stylish. This particular style guide takes inspiration from Karl Largerfield’s Chanel resort 13 line. Extremely pretty and uber feminine but with a Lolita/bad girl twist.
Usually worn in winter, the classic Chanel tweed jacket has been updated with embroidery and appliqué in sugar-tastic colours like sherbet pink. Wear your knitwear in the same way but over a beautiful ombre dress for when the summer chill sets in. Florals, pastels and mermaid like textures all join to create a trend that can be easily interoperated into your weekend wardrobe!
