Summer, Summer, Summertime: Resort Collections Part One

With the hot, hazy days of summer the last thing you want to be wearing are jeans, jeggings or formfitting anything. Instead, it is always best to opt for something more fluid, loose and bright with perhaps an embellishment here or there.

Although resort collections are typically for the annual winter vacation, I can't help but admire them come summer time. I just love the lightness and colour of it, and the way it makes you feel as if you are sunbathing on Lake Como when you are really just in your backyard.



Chanel, Chanel, Chanel. How can you not love Chanel? With its classic yet edgy take on everything, one cannot help but admire its beauty. These three looks are excellent for some fun in the sun.

The first look uses the always classic, all-American gingham which is just oh so cute! Bikinis with ruffles are a great way to add some swing to your beach lounging and what is a bikini without some accessorizing? If you plan on wearing jewelry to the beach such as this long necklace or perhaps some gold bangles,  I highly suggest you wear cheap jewelry to avoid ruining or losing a more expensive piece. I also recommend coating your jewelry in clear nail polish to help prevent rusting.

Look number two is classic, chic and cute all over! No Chanel look is complete without a chain strap bag and bow detail on a blouse. It appears that this geometric print jacket is a new alternative to the typical beach cover up. If you have a lightweight blazer, why not try wearing it over your bikini when you want to take break from the water.

Look number three is the way to wear to black in the summer, lightweight with a hint of sparkle. Halter-style maxi dresses are my fave and make everything in the summer seem so easy breezy. Perfect for afternoon cocktails and rooftop parties.

I hope I provided you with some midsummer fashion inspiration. Until next time!

Enjoy!
