Pursuit of prints
August may not be exact time for summer shopping side of sales, but always pops out something inevitable. This time are prints that although bought as summer pieces, could become style builders of fall closet.
dress See by Chloe dress is just perfect example; silk fabric, interesting star print and ¾ sleeves make this dress perfect for summer evenings on nude legs that later could be easily replaced with black tights and flats for daily elegance. Also if you spot somewhere silk blue dress from Lewis summer collection, don’t leave it to someone else. That would be a sin.
jacket Little jacket in oriental or floral print is my very style candy of the season but not exactly the item you will find in shops unless they are selling vintage. Blogger Typhanie is irresistible in combination of little floral blazer with shorts. As a matter of fact all the prints you will see on her blog are worn in very irresistible way (via nast.fr)
If jacket is not so safe solution for you, go for printed cardigan or kimono like this on the picture from topshop and wear it over top of different print (see Rachel Comey ss10)
shorts or pants From tribal, floral, leopard or other printed pants that you have in your closet or thinking about getting one, instead with boots, wear them in very ladylike manner.(topshop shorts would be perfect with black tights and a blazer in fall)
