Summer is the best time to experiment with all new colours and styles in the market! After all, this is the time when our social calendars are super-booked. So, don’t be lazy (or scared!) and try out these easy-breezy looks from one of our favourite stores, United Colors of Benetton. Isn’t it just the best feeling when you can get everything you need in just one store?! And yes, we’ve thought of every occasion you could possibly have planned during the week!
1. Evening Out, Right After Work
When you have plans to go out right after work, you really need to put some thought into what you wear. It has to be formal, while still being fun! This skirt-and-top combination is just right for that purpose. Pair it up with some fancy flats and then all you need to do before heading out is put on a matching necklace and a clutch to hold all your essentials!
2. Casual Fridays
Friday is the one day EVERY person looks forward to! And it’s so amazing that you can actually dress down on those days! So, take out your favourite pair of jeans and pair it up with a casual printed top and some comfortable flats. Of course, don’t forget your tote bag - you don’t want a late start to the day!
3. Champagne Brunches
We LIVE for brunches! It’s just the best weekend meal and of course we have to look our best for it! And you know the one thing that always does that? A contrasting colour combination! So, get your hands on this flattering, green dress and wear it with some totally summery wedges. You can even accessorize your look with a statement bracelet and matching earrings.
4. Shopping With The Girls
We’re always counting down the days to go shopping with our besties! Of course, there is more catching-up involved than actual shopping! We love to be comfortable on such days and these printed pants and message tee would be our first option. Add your trusty satchel, a pretty pair of ballet flats and some bold bracelets, and you’re good to go!
5. Lunch Date
When you’re meeting the boy for a lunch date, you just have to wear something eye-catching! This absolutely gorgeous dress is perfect for the occasion. We love the bright colours and the floral print. Plus, the silhouette is very flattering! Carry a shrug, in case you want to cover up at some point. Flats are totally right for a lunchtime date, but you can still amp it up with a delicate necklace and bracelet.
6. Ladies Night!
The mid-week drinks with our friends is what gets some of us through the tough days at work. But it isn’t just about gossiping over cocktails - we love the getting-ready process just as much as the event. Get that fancy embellished top out and pair it up with a monochrome skirt and dangling earrings. Sticking to flats is a great option if you don’t want to risk tripping!
7. Family Dinner
Family dinners are just one more occasion we get to dress up for! Something subtle-yet-classy is a great look for those. Try out this nude-colour dress, we’re totally loving the silhouette - eat all you can buffets! ;-) Rock this dress with a pair of golden mid-heels and pearl jewellery is just what you need to add to complete the look!
