The Whitehouse Cox fashionistas take aim at the fashion faux pas the ladies need to avoid this summer!
Following on from the success of our previous blog, Five Fashion Faux Pas Gentlemen Should Avoid This Summer, we thought it only right to let the fashion gurus set out the rules for the ladies to follow this summer.
With a number of elite Summer events including Henley Regatta and Wimbledon just around the corner, it’s time to start planning what to wear and what definitely not to! Preparation and planning are the keys to flawless fashion, and there’s no time like the present to get started.
Get your pen and paper ready; it’s time to take notes!
Bright on Bright on Bright
When the sun finally makes it long-awaited appearance over the green countryside and sandy shores of Britain, it can be tempting to throw together all the bright clothes you own and leave the house as your very own ray of sunshine. But, we’re here to tell you know that it’s definitely not a good look.
Of course, summer does warrant a slightly brighter hue of dress but don’t over-do it. If you’re wearing a bright dress and jewellery, keep other accessories more neutral. For example, our Mountbatten Holdall or Classic Clutch are available in muted tones that will complement statement colours without going over-board.
Bulky Footwear with Feminine Dresses
Very few women can sport this combination and actually make it work, so probably best to avoid big, bulky footwear with elegant dresses. Instead, stick with a glamorous pair of heels that complement your feminine gown or if your main priority is comfort a pair of delicate sandals.
Too Many Accessories
As Summer rolls around, it’s perfectly fine to fling open your jewellery box and reach for your purses, but don’t over accessorise – ever! It’s more tempting to wear an armful of jewellery in Summer as you have more skin on show to adorn with gems, but too much and you’ll end up looking too ostentatious!
Even if you are wearing a simple outfit, pick only a few simple bracelets with one statement necklace and one of and our minimal yet elegant purses. It’ll be more than enough!
Our accessories are designed with ‘too much’ in mind. We keep our purses, bags and everything else minimal so that you never have to worry about your accessories looking over the top. Class is best achieved in an understated fashion.
