Summer is here, and with it come the heavy humidity and heat. Even in days like this I recommend dressing for work or for a night out in a tailored, comfortable and chic look. The secret is in the fabric and the shape. You can choose pants or a skirt made of a thin breathing fabric, and blouses should preferably be made of cotton, chiffon or silk. The shapes should be flattering but not too tight, shapes that allow the body some air. The style of clothes I design, Smart Casual, suits anyone that wants to look great at the workplace and in dates, and survive the hot summer days without compromise.
In this post I present a straight skirt, curving but not tight. This ‘Geometric’ skirt in a light coffee tone, has lengthwise and crosswise cuts and diagonally cut pockets, and is made of cotton fabric with diagonal stripes creating a light and interesting texture. The brown ‘Tiltan’ blouse is made of an airy cotton fabric with a small flower print on a chocolate-brown background. The blouse has a V-neck and a flat collar, partial buttoning with three buttons and short sleeves. The clothes touch the body but don’t cling to it, and they are made of breathing fabrics suitable for hot days. That’s how I dress to have fun. I add a large comfortable bag, a pair of sandals and delicate jewelry and go out to work.
