School’s out, nature is bursting into life. There are ripe tomatoes on the table, strawberries are at their sweetest and there’s still plenty to sink your teeth into this summer.
Words by Imogen Smith
Book festival tickets, immerse yourself in a blockbuster show, get out of town. Whether you venture further afield or stay close to home, grasp all the opportunities these warmer months throw at you.
Now is the moment to seize mid-summer with all your might.
Summer is festival season. Grab your camping gear, something shiny, a bold print, your most comfortable footwear and find yourself in a field dancing until the sun comes up. In 2023, festival fashion is all about combining a vibrant print with a comfortable silhouette. Think Hawaiian shirts with loose-cut shorts, metallic trousers with a breezy bandana top.
Loose-fitting, skin-skimming layers are what you need to stay cool this summer. Look for cool shades like aquamarine, sea green and ecru, spun into blousy silhouettes to create a look that’s comfortable and chic.
The right knit knows no bounds. A light layer can be as useful in the height of summer as it can be during the colder months. For best results, throw a sleeveless tank top over your bikini or tie a fine-knit over your shoulders when the sun goes down.
A healthy dose of glitter can make you feel like a human disco ball, in the best way. Think shimmering mini dresses and statement tops or even a bikini with a hint of glitz. The best thing about a summer sequin? They reflect the sunshine so you’ll glow wherever you go.
Now’s the time to lean into summer. Consider this an opportunity to have fun, both in the way you dress and in the way you go about your day. Drop those shoulders, add some colour, feel the cold water lapping at your toes and soak up every moment under those big blue skies.
