One of our favourite things about summer is that ‘dressing up’ is as simple as a touch of gold and some lipstick. No clingy tights, no bejeweled pumps (save them for fall and slip on something flat and Grecian) and no body-con dresses. Instead of gasping for air, think airy. A long, sinewy frock in cotton voile that brushes the ground. Loose hair left to it’s natural texture. And a piece of jewelry that makes you glow. Club Monaco’s gilded leafy necklace belongs nonchalantly tied around swan necks. While the black grograin ribbon is decidedly ladylike, the tiered strands are full-stop free spirt. And isn’t that a balance we all wish to strike?
