To look chic in summer is a task a bit challenging to pull off. In my case, a lot more difficult as I am part of that group of people who just love sitting next to the AC vent at the office.
Summer comes with beautiful sheer dresses, chic shorts, comfy pants and sexy sandals. But those 9 Instagrammers know how to style the pieces making them unique. That is the secret to look chic in Summer; how to lace your sandal or the unexpected knot in the t-shirt. See for yourself.
The Danish influencer, who is the former editor for the magazine Costume Denmark, looks unique wearing the number one summer staple. She chose a crisp white T-shirt paired with another big summer trend, paper bag waist trousers, and barely-there sandals. She finished her on-point look tying the straps of her sandals over the pants, creating an unexpected new volume.
Sylvie Mus is a freelance stylist and fashion writer from Rwanda living in Finland. She knows how to keep fresh and look elegant. She went for wearing a linen sleeveless oversized jacket with nothing underneath. A chic and sexy choice. The wide trousers and leather slides complement the smart look. She nails perfectly the “back to nature” trend with the natural materials, colours and minimalist accessories she chooses.
Debora Rosa is a muse of the wander trend, she’s a traveller, and her wardrobe is full of hues of earthy colours. She paired beige tailored trousers with a Jacquemus crisp white shirt tied in the waist. So that’s a super idea on how to make your good and old white shirt new again. The caramel leather slide sandals by Hermès are the icing on the cake.
This super stylish Canadian over 50 influencer is not afraid of mixing patterns. An A-skirt paired with sleeveless shirt and mules is a chic and fresh look for summer. The mix&match of prints make the look up-to-date and fun. The secret of mixing patterns is to keep it in the same colour palette. In the case of Grace is the red colour.
How to pull off wearing a loose oversized white dress without looking like you’re going to bed? The Spanish designer Gala Gonzalez pairs her romantic cotton dress with cool sneakers. This contrast is king. And the elegant Dior bag gives the look a chic je-ne-sais-quoi.
One of the biggest German influencers, Caro Daur, wears the perfect summer office look: jeans and a strapless top, paired with fantastic Bally transparent loafers! For hotter days, jeans should be relaxed and with straight legs; and the contrast with a very feminine top is chic and fresh.
A boyfriend blue and white striped shirt in cotton is classic and always look chic. Be adventurous and pair it with a printed skirt like the former fashion director at Tatler. And finish your look with flat raffia flip-flops and a trendy oversized headband. More Mediterranean, impossible!
Shorts are a big choice this season. Just do like Josephine Aarkrogh, Elle Denmark’sfashion editor, who wears matching shorts and blouse from the sustainable Danish fashion label Shall Studio. She dresses up her look with a statement handbag from Proenza Schouler.
In the best French-girl style, Constance Arnoult chose a cute vintage polka-dot wrap dress to a weekend in the countryside. The stylish PR is wearing a beautiful look that can work for the office or a night out too. I like the idea to wear polka-dots as an option to overrated summer floral dresses.
