how to make a summer style statement

22th June 2016
As the sun rises earlier and sets later, we are blessed with so many more hours of light. Sunlight is truly magical and it is near impossible to feel low with its presence. With my mood forever reflected in my fashion, there are currently no dull and dark colours to be found in my wardrobe. But I am a creature of subtlety, I don’t like to make too much of a fuss of myself and I prefer to move under the radar therefore my pallet is somewhat safe. This doesn’t mean I don’t like to play with my style and introduce textures, colours and styles but it must always be in my own subtle way which is incredible important to me. So whilst I swap out my dull sombre Winter wardrobe, how do I plan on making my Summer Style Statements this season.   [lem_title]FABRIC DETAILS[/lem_title] Texture is one of the biggest changes I make in my style, aside from colour, when Summer rolls around. I introduce crochet, lace, cottons and silks to contrast each other and add some detail to the outfit whilst also proving breathable and comfortable fabric choices when it starts to hot up. This top from The End in Watford as been one of my ultimate fabric detail finds of the season with its laser cut fabric and flute sleeves providing a Self Portrait vibe on the high street.   [lem_title]LUXE ACCESSORIES[/lem_title] Of course, what is a Lydia Elise Millen outfit without a little luxe thrown in the mix.

This doesn’t mean I don’t like to play with my style and introduce textures, colours and styles but it must always be in my own subtle way which is incredible important to me. So whilst I swap out my dull sombre Winter wardrobe, how do I plan on making my Summer Style Statements this season.

 

[lem_title]FABRIC DETAILS[/lem_title]

Texture is one of the biggest changes I make in my style, aside from colour, when Summer rolls around. I introduce crochet, lace, cottons and silks to contrast each other and add some detail to the outfit whilst also proving breathable and comfortable fabric choices when it starts to hot up. This top from The End in Watford as been one of my ultimate fabric detail finds of the season with its laser cut fabric and flute sleeves providing a Self Portrait vibe on the high street.

 

[lem_title]LUXE ACCESSORIES[/lem_title]

Of course, what is a Lydia Elise Millen outfit without a little luxe thrown in the mix. Accessories this Summer offer floral fancies and flirtatious barely there hues such as this matching pair from the coveted Valentino “Rockstud” family from Farfetch. The tone is subtle and feminine mixing gloss and matte finishes with a rock & roll twist to the signature hardware. Teamed with distressed denim fabrics and a flirty crisp white they really glam up an every day  look making it Roof terrace appropriate for those dreamy hot London evenings. Not to mention these heels are the most comfortable designer heels I have ever owned, worth every single penny, statement or no statement.

 

[lem_title]SUBTLE SHADES[/lem_title]

Summer hues are what excite me most about the season, everything becomes brighter, fresher and far more feminine. Pinks are back with a bang, but if like me you can go from nought to Barbie as the sight of hot pink, you might want to stick to the more subtle hues from the spectrum.

Nude is and always will be my ultimate style staple providing me with the window of opportunity to add that colour, that fun and that playfulness into my style without being garish or imposing. My shoes and handbags are where I get to play the most with colour currently as they enable even the most basic jeans and tee combo to come to life.

 

[lem_title]LIP COLOUR POPS[/lem_title]

If in doubt, raid the lipstick draw because a carefully chosen lip colour can bring to life and finish an outfit perfectly and can be fairly inexpensive too. When I’m feeling daring organgy red hues are my favourite.

A little indulgence from my comfort of my own home thanks to INCREDIBLE @kmp_skin and @freshbeauty Ad 
for the launch of the new Lotus Youth Preserve Resurfacing dream serum which is a gentle AHA serum with prickly pear flower extract said to boost radiance and it was so lovely to be treated to a first trial to get a very first impression of the serum thanks to KMP and her magic hands. I’ve literally never had a facial like it!
The plum tree in our garden is always the first blossom to erupt at this time of year narrowly beating the much loved aubretia that grows in abundance through our old garden wall. As soon as is acceptable I’m out with my secateurs ready to fill vases and prickly jars with its delicate confetti like blooms 🌸
Februarys carpet of Crocus blooms is always quite the spectacle. I find these little cheerful perennial flowers popping up in the most unlikely of places and what’s special is how they naturalise and multiply each year to create a carpet of flowers ready for the early Winter-Spring bees 🌱
Winter Spring views.
Primrose & Snowdrops are on their way!
February is a very special month, it almost feels like the build up before the crescendo of spring and I can’t help but feel a flutter in my chest at the thought of what’s to come 🌱
