Tropical Temptation

When choosing a summer piece, it's a good idea to keep fabric in mind. A fitted or thick fabric can aid in giving you shape, and showing off your silhouette, but is also prone to trapping heat. Thick or tight fabrics tend to be better suited for night time events, for a day time occasion a loose and flowing fabric is key. Printed fabrics are also necessary to consider when it comes to summer event dresses. A flowing printed dress is a piece that is made for summer garden parties and hot days. A style with a summer print and a lightweight fabric will compliment both you and your event, while keeping you cool & comfortable.



Sequins & Stardust

Light and sparkling shades go hand in hand with the warmer weather, a visual embodiment of our spirits in the sunshine. Think bright whites, pastel sequins and party shades. A lighter coloured fabric can serve you in both fashion and function, as heat doesn't absorb into lighter colours the same way as dark shades. Pastel coloured hues will keep you cooler while the impact of vibrant colours and saturated hues will turn up the heat on your look. Think hot candy pinks and bright greens, adding pops of colour to your wardrobe is a fun way to embrace the colours of summer.


Green Enchantment

When it comes to floral prints and bright coloured hues you can let your dress do the talking. Accessories for garden parties and summer weddings should complement not overshadow. Keeping your jewellery, bags and accessories simple will ensure you achieve an elegant and comfortable look. Wear accessories that will complement you whole outfit, this could be a pair of earrings or a statement headpiece. With the bright colour of green you could pair golden earrings and some chic heels.
