Dress to Impress

Posted On16 Jul 2012

Flaunt your fashion sense this summer by bringing casual, comfy styles to the fore. Stay true to your own style, adding little twists to existing outfits to glam things up. Here are three of this summer’s biggest looks that are a cinch to put together – all you need to add is a bit of attitude.



Looking for a splash of inspiration for those plain tops? Enter the vest – in leather, lace or even denim, this handy piece goes a long way to add depth and interest to shirts, t-shirts and even dresses. For a cool summer look, like that sported by celeb Nicky Hilton, combine this light, creamy lace vest from Splash with a basic top and your favourite pair of jeans.



There’s nothing quite like a sweet summer dress to beat the heat. Show off your feminine curves with a bright floral print that you can wear for brunch, a trip to the mall (throw in a scarf), or paired with super-high heels for a swell night out. Wear it to work with pumps or sandals, or layer on a cardigan, blazer or jacket for a chic 9-to-5 look.



Ultra-relaxed, effortless and bohemian, Palazzo pants are back to cool you off in the summer months. They’re easy to wear and fun; the only rule to wear them right is to pair them with a fitted top – both cotton and silk work well – and slip on your favourite heels to give your legs that never-ending length.
