The modest yet hottest trend for spring summer 2016

It is all about the shoulders this s/s 2016! And the modest yet hottest is the cold shoulder but who named them cold shoulders??? I mean they make you look like a bomb without having to show off much, they should be called hot shoulders!!!
I also love them because  1) they are as practical and appropriate to wear to the mall,  for grocery shopping or brunch as they are for date night or clubbing or even to work. 2) they have no age limit and none of us should hesitate from flaunting those hot shoulders, I mean come on there is no cleavage show, or legs display!!!! Sexy without showing skin is super thumbs up!!
Midi length dresses or skirts paired with tops/ shirts in the cold shoulder style work great for modest styles and  minis, overalls or denim shorts work super for fun and youthful styles. I have linked some very cool cold shoulder dress options from modest to bold for you to have a look and try.

Todays look is more appropriate for a date night or a formal event or a lunch date with the girls but I am already inching to wear this dress with sneakers for shopping tomorrow.

Dress- stradivarius ( similar)
Heels- dune london ( similar)

Bag-                           Asos
Earrings-           local boutique

The single strap heels are a must have in every girls closet. Shoe styles will come and go but this one ain't going anywhere. It's a classic and the safest heeled shoe to pair with any outfit  for any occasion. One in nude and black is a must and you can add one colour option to your collection depending on what colour clothes you mostly wear. Spending a little extra is worth for such classic pieces you will wear year after year, brands like Steve Madden, Dune London  or even ASOS do good ones at fairly reasonable prices. Some great ones are linked above.
I am wearing my favourite lipstick of all time the revlon matte balm in the shade shameless, it's the exact shade as Mac heroine but much more nourishing and looks great worn both light and dark. Purple lips were everywhere at the recently concluded Cannes film festival 2016 so I am super happy to wear it even more. I would mostly wear it light by dabbing with my fingers for just a hint of purpley mauvey color on the lips but for this look I chose to apply it a little dark to add some edginess. Love the contrast of the lips with the effortlessness of the braid and the sweetness of the small florals on the dress. Contrasting elements always make for interesting and fresh looks.

A modern look with classics

One of the most chic looks to wear is the one that looks modern but incorporates classic pieces. So the key is to incorporate trendier pieces with classic ones or choose refreshed classic pieces or combine pieces with different moods. Like in this outfit the classic striped t worn with 70s skirt, modern heels and boho hair. 

An A line denim skirt has one of the most figure forgiving silhouettes. It cinches the waist, cups the butt and then flares a bit to give a great figure. The button down style is a great detail option to try and also gives the on trend 70s vibe. I have linked 2 great styles that you will love. 

Stripes are the most versatile print and go with everything. In the spring summer time classic t's like this one give a very relaxed and comfy vibe and also look very chic.  Horizontal stripes some of us can be conscious of wearing as they tend to enlarge or widen the body but the thin stripes do none of that  as you can see in this look so go for thin stripes. Also for Spring summer patches are super trendy so you can refresh you stripes collection with T's with those details.

Red shoes add oomph and sexiness to even the most basic outfits. They are also a great pop of colour to neutral outfits. So if you do not wear much colour you can choose to just have a pop of red with your shoes and it'll do everything and if you love colour then red shoes are definitely for you. The one I am wearing is sold out but I have linked a wide range of shoes from comfy to trendy to cute so have a look at that.

This outfit is also a great example of how to put a modern and chic look which speaks style more than fashion. Two other things I love about this outfit is 1) It can look as good with flat shoes and sandals as it does with heels so can be worn for numerous occasions from semi formal to completely casual and 2) It is very appropriate for all ages. So big thumbs up to those!!!!

Wear shorts as formals

Shorts are mostly thought of as casuals or meant for casual occasions which is mostly true but we can also make them work for formal occasions, here's how, choose 1) tailor made styles 2) more conservative lengths 3) fabrics such as silk, linen, wool, etc and pair with 4) formal top/ blouse/ shirt  5) appropriate accessories.

Linen shorts in tailor made styles are great for formal wear and even us shorts fearing ladies can rock them with confidence.

Love the pairing of blush with white, it is very soft and feminine and totally made for spring summer when the lighter colour palette is more soothing to the senses.

White tops and blouses with interesting details are all the rage right now and this one from Zara in cotton fabric with the cute sleeve detail is super trendy yet super comfortable and versatile. I can see myself wearing it with high waisted skinnies, skirts, cropped pants, basically everything. If you are looking to update ur wardrobe for Spring summer,  do include a white blouse with interesting details in your list. Its a huge trend which is very easy to pair with existing pieces in our wardrobes.

Thank you for stopping by! See you in my next one.
