Wherever you may be heading this summer, they are some key items that you have to pack to ensure your holiday style reflects that of chic & effortless (even if you have made a bit of effort to look the part).

POP IT LIKE IT’S HOT

When we think of summer the first thing that comes to mind is colour. Packed away are your winter hues, your skin has a healthy glow and the sun is out. There are no rules- clash colours together, wear one hue in different textures or play with prints and add a bold coloured shoe. However you wear it, colour is a sure way to elevate your look.

CLASH COLOURS

Clash Colours- Create a bold, statement look by teaming different pop colours together. We love this white Witchery cropped tee, combined with this leather look neon River Island mini skirt, Hot Pink t bar stiletto sandal by Wanted and Oversized Blue Shoulder bag by Tony Bianco

Striking and bold, clashing colours creates a strong outfit that is summer ready. From left: Witchery cropped tee, River Island mini skirt, Renata Pink by Wanted, Tony Bianco cobalt bag.

 

WEAR WITH WHITE

Wear With White: A fresh, easy to wear way to embrace colour is by teaming a shoe in a bright hue with an all-white outfit. We love this casual Sass and Bide tee with these white denim One Teaspoon shorts, teamed with these Kardashian Kollection neon yellow pointed toe stiletto pumps in snake texture, and these blue Witchery aviators.

If you are hesitant to go all out with bright colour, work back a vibrant shoe with an all-white look. A young, fresh way to embrace this look. From left: Sass and Bide tee, One Teaspoon Shorts, Kardashian Kollection neon snake pump and Witchery aviators.

 

PLAY WITH PRINTS

Play With Prints: A great way to embrace the colour trend is by wearing a print, and working it back with a coloured shoe that is a similar tone or hue. We love the tropical resort vibe of this Shieke playsuit, combined with this gold Witchery belt and Sass and Bide sunglasses. This pointed toe stiletto pump with ankle strap in turquoise by Wanted matches the hues featured in the playsuit.

Create a high impact look by combining a fun, summer print with a pop colour shoe. This works best when you select a shoe the same tone as the print.

WEAR ONE HUE

Wear One Hue: For a striking, high impact look, stick with one colour and wear it head to toe. We love the look of this Bardot bralet and midi skirt, teamed with these statement caged up pointed studded Diavolina pumps and Sass and Bide aviators.

Dramatic and daring- wearing one colour head to toe creates a head-turning look. We love this shad of pink, head to toe.

DO IT WITH DENIM

Do it with Denim: A perfect way to create an effortless look to a pop colour shoe is by working it back with denim. We love this caged up pointed toe stiletto pump in neon yellow by Diavolina, worked back with this chambray denim Sass and Bide shirt, One Teaspoon distressed denim shorts and oversized tortoiseshell Karen Walker sunglasses.

When in doubt, wear denim. A perfect way to create an effortless look with a pop colour shoe.
