Summer is a time to just chill. It's about being carefree and worry-free and keeping it extra simple, sweethearts. While most of us don't have the luxury of lounging on a dock all summer (AKA #goals) we do have the option of stress-free dressing. My favourite way? It's all about going matchy matchy. No need to overthink it: matchy dressing lets you pick one colour or theme and be done with it. The result? A super stylish pay-off with relatively little effort. Scroll down for 5 winning ways to go matchy right now. Hope you're having the best summer EVER xx
HOW TO PULL IT OFF | Forget the fact that you're a walking sangria magnet. Just pretend for a sec that no toddlers are going to come at you with double scoops of Gold Medal Ribbon ready to destroy you. Just remember that when it comes to summer dressing, wearing white from top to toe is always right. To look extra on point, opt for a pair of white shortalls, an off-the-shoulder top & cute white kicks. Sporty yet chic, this look might not be the most practical, but it's practically perfect for these carefree days of summer. Also note the pockets: perfect for carrying Tide Sticks.
HOW TO PULL IT OFF | A bright floral dress is the perfect antidote to a closetful of solids and tells the world that you're up for any party. But why stop there? We're loving florals from our handbags to our shoes this summer, and highly recommend matching floral sneakers to go with your amazeballs dress. Top off your fiesta with a bright red lip that's guaranteed to get you noticed by the fashion elite.
HOW TO PULL IT OFF | We love rompers and jumpsuits in theory but in real life? I think we can all agree that they're just a little bit inconvenient. This summer, score the look of a jumpsuit by pairing a simple black tank with black jogger-style or wide leg pants. For casual days, add some cute gym slides. When you want to dress up, add a pair of strappy sandals and statement earrings.
HOW TO PULL IT OFF | If you love brights, you've probably already tried bright tees and bold handbags. But how about matching bold brights from top to bottom? Try a pink sweater or tee, matching pink tailored trousers, & fun pink sunglasses, then add a pop of contrast by adding in a pair of yellow, blue or silver mules. Obsessed with this.
HOW TO PULL IT OFF | Work wear can be a real grind, especially in the summer months. A pair of black & white printed pants will add loads of interest to your go-to white menswear shirt. But again, don't stop there. We love the super subtle addition of rose gold to the mix to take B&W from basic to brilliant. Match your metallic sneakers to your other accessories (ie. a watch, earrings, a rose-hued sweater) to finish off your outfit and help you look like a total bawse.
