Having a breezy-chic style this summer season is one of the ultimate goals of most women that can be stylish and functional enough to beat the heat with style. Mind behind the “What Olivia Did” blog, Olivia Purvis is a London-based style blogger known for her effortless, breezy, and chic style that might inspire you this summer. So, keep on reading to scoop some fashionable tricks from her.
Embrace summer dresses in lightweight fabrics, breezy styles, and summer colors.
Rayon, cotton, chambray, linen and such are some of the summer fabrics that can keep you cool. Like Olivia, go for juicy colors, pastel shades, or even denim hues that will make your street style breezy-chic. An orange cold-shoulder dress teamed with lace-up shoes can be enough to add some life to your summer look. Or, resort to ruffled off-shoulder dresses, halter maxi dresses, and tube dresses that will keep your looks feminine at the same time breezy-chic. This way, you’ll get a functional at the same time stylish look that will help you beat the summer heat with style.
Dress up your favorite denim items for a casual-chic street style.
If you’re a fan of denim items, dress them up to give you a chic style. If you may, trade those dark wash denim to light wash ones, and treat your chambray shirts as a topper that will give you the same effortlessly cool vibe yet more comfortable than a denim jacket. Remember, light colors reflect light while dark ones absorb heat, so going for lighter shades will keep you not only feminine but also breezy on your street style.
Incorporate summer-inspired prints into your look.
Apart from colorful and retro floral prints, you can make your style summer-inspired by going for tropical patterns, fruit prints, and graphic prints. To channel a quirky yet feminine vibe, think of a fruit print dress like watermelons, peach, mangoes, oranges, and strawberries that can add some unexpected touch to your summer style. Like Olivia, make your fruit print the statement on your outfit by wearing matching accessories that won’t steal the show. If you’re a fan of bohemian or vintage fashion, you could never go wrong with retro floral prints, especially in flared silhouettes or free-flowing fabrics perfect for the summer.
Don your summer accessories to complete your look.
Straw hats and sunglasses are a trademark of the summer fashion, but you can get away with satchel bag and strappy sandals that will also add some summer vibe into your look. Like Olivia, you may even go for a watercolor print dress in pastel shades and complement it with a matching clutch that will give you a cohesive look. Indeed, summer is the perfect time to look breezy and effortless while keeping you chic and feminine.
