Flowing dresses, thin shirts and short shorts. In summer less is more – but on the other hand, when it comes to accessories you can pick from an embarrassment of riches.
Sunglasses are an absolute must. For men Bottega Veneta has square aviator models with a tortoiseshell pattern and green-tinted lenses. The women’s style is rounder and evokes the style icon that is Audrey Hepburn.
As ever when it’s 34 degrees outside, strutting in the shade is easiest in flats. Mules are still sought after and they come in an icily cool shade of silver at Prada, whereas Emporio Armani has reinterpreted the sandals of our childhood. A more elegant alternative: the light moccasins by Bottega Veneta.
Bags, necklaces, bracelets
Bags are light and adapted to summer styles. Our favourites: the white croc-esque rucksack by Bottega Veneta and the handbag in classic black and white by J.W. Anderson (available at Amicis Deuxieme). A must-have for fashionistas: the belt bag by Prada.
Although we’re obviously removing unnecessary layers in the heat of summer, when it comes to jewellery we’re doing exactly the opposite. The men’s bracelet by Louis Vuitton with summery aquamarine shades is extremely eye-catching, as is the necklace by Prada that resembles a charm bracelet.
