Casual Chic Style
A casual style may call for a pair of denim jeans, but it may look more feminine if you opt for chic versions. Like Joëlle, trade your distressed and dark washed jeans with a pair of white one that looks feminine and chic. Team them with your summer inspired tops like an off-shoulder top, ruffled blouse, tank top, or a striped tee. If you’re more on the edgy side, go for a pair of jogger pants that will look effortlessly cool with a crop top and a pair of peep-toe boots like Joëlle did. Or, channel the nautical theme with Breton stripes by wearing a striped dress, striped tank top, or even a striped tee with your chic pieces.
If you’re working in a creative office, pastel colors and summer prints may look great. Like Joëlle, trade your black and white business suits with a pastel pink jumpsuit that look chic and romantic. Full skirts will look perfect when worn with decent tops like a lightweight sweater or a black blouse. Like Joëlle, you may actually go for a floral print long sleeved dress to channel your feminine vibe while keeping your style office-appropriate. Trade your neutral tones with pastel colored ones to keep your summer style look breezy and feminine at your workplace. A nude colored dress can be a modern yet classy alternative to your little black dress. Just go for the shade that flatters your skin tone and will look decent and professional at your workplace.
Garden Party Looks
Prepare yourself for garden parties, as summer is the perfect time for them. Like Joëlle go for a breezy, chic, and feminine style of dresses, tops, and skirts that will channel your flirty and romantic vibe this season. Like Joëlle, go for a lightweight chiffon dress in mini length that will look sexy yet party-appropriate. Or, opt for a floral print matching set of a crop top and a skirt that will look chic, especially when the occasion will be held in the backyard with floral motifs. Black ensembles may not be encouraged in the summer as it believed to absorb heat, but you may still go for lightweight and sheer fabrics to keep your summer party looks elegant yet breezy. Indeed, flaunting your style in the summer is one of the creative ways to express yourself.
