Style solutions: Urban Jungle

urban jungleFor those of us that aren’t jetting off to sunnier tropical climates this summer, it seems difficult to justify the purchase of a new bikini and an embellished kaftan… however when the weather is warm, the city is unbearably humid and sweaty.

So this week I’ve put together a couple of looks to help you look your best on a hot day in the big smoke, whilst you are keeping as cool as possible. Channeling the safari trend for city wear is a fresh new take on your summer wardrobe, a welcome change from all the floral prints and romantic pastel shades. Team earthy colours with slouchy fabrics, a pair of gladiators and a great hat then you are good to go. I love the “Beth” shorts Va Vizuri currently have in stock and putting them with the black leopard print cardigan from To Love Kuvaa is another nod to the jungle safari look. If you would prefer to be a bit more covered up and avoid the chance of sun burnt legs then grab the buckle detail harem pants and drapey vest from Brick Lanes Finest and you are sorted.

Now you have no excuse to not be looking slick in the city in every season.

Style Solutions: We’re all going on a summer holiday

If you are one of the lucky ones jetting off to a palm tree lined beach this summer I know what a nightmare it can be to put together looks that suit a whole different climate – so I thought I’d give you a hand with your packing! This summer I think its all about bright tones and tropical motifs. Our very own “To Love Kuvaa” range has everything you could possibly need – and my key items I think you shouldn’t be without for your holiday this year is the “Sara” hat, the “Flower” playsuit and a straw hat which can be dressed up with chunky jewelery in the evenings and paired with anything from denim shorts to a high waisted skirt. I particularly love this look with a soft grey cardigan (this style is “Vicky”) – a look that works just as well for festivals and for summers in the city.

Add a cute bikini, some chunky wooden wedges and a big pair of sunnies then you are good to go! Oh, and don’t forget your suncream! Happy Holidays!
