Style – Shirt Dress:
When choosing a look for a summer day, a lot of elements must come into consideration: weather, comfort, style, etc. But, for this upcoming season, there is a simple solution to all of those components in three, simple words: the shirt dress. Essentially a longer version of the infamous button-down, the shirt dress is about as classic as they come. Airy yet structured, the shirt dress is a more professional version of the sundress that still has the easy nature for a daytime look.
Pair your shirt dress with flats to create a perfect look for exploring Cape Cod and then when the sun goes down, swap them for killer heels to transform your ensemble into a outfit that is
ready for night on the town.
The shirtdress is the perfect hybrid of comfort and class and is a must have staple for your summer wardrobe this season.
Pattern – Embroidery:
Marveling at haute couture and drooling over runway looks is a common past-time for this generation of enthused fashion fanatics but with this upcoming season, there’s a certain pattern that’s creating a bridge from high-end style to mainstream looks: embroidery. This pattern, a beautiful skill that has been around for centuries is transitioning into mainstream, everyday wear with the help of subtle detailing on cocktail gowns or on the sleeves of a bomber jacket. Embroidery acts as a way to elevate your style all while keeping it in budget and on trend. It acknowledges the skill and craftsmanship behind a couture look but is more accessible than the 10,000 blouses modeled in luxury fashion shows.
This summer, encapsulate a bit of high-end flair and add some embroidery to your style, whether it’s a simple flower design on a clutch purse or cutting-edge detailing along the sides of a trouser. Embroidery may just be the perfect pattern to freshen up your wardrobe with a node to the highly-esteemed style of any couture collection.
