Dear Curations friends –
Summer is finally kicking into high gear and with it starts the events – holiday celebrations, graduation parties, backyard barbecues, beach bonfires – the list goes on! These days it’s not only impossible but also totally impractical to buy a new outfit for every party you go to – and there’s ABSOLUTELY no need to when you have these key items.
Key Item #1: The Caftan
A style long-favored by fashion icons such as Jackie O and Gloria Vanderbilt, the caftan is one of the most versatile items in your wardrobe. It can literally go from the beach (as a bathing suit cover-up) to a chic cocktail party with just the addition of some accessories! It’s a great choice for a beach bonfire or any other party that might get chilly when the sun goes down – long sleeves and a long length also help keep the mosquitoes away!
Key Item #2: A Sun Hat
Daytime events aren’t an excuse to slack off in the style department – but fashion has to be functional as well! Keep your face shaded from the sun – and your chic factor on high – with a big brimmed sun hat. For a day-to-evening event, you can keep your hat on – just channel the chic look of Jennifer Lopez or Victoria Beckham who are regularly seen with fabulous toppers!
Key Item #3: Statement Jewelry
When it comes to jewelry for summer, bigger is definitely better. All it takes is one statement item to put the finishing touch on your entire look. Whether you prefer bracelets, necklaces, earrings, rings – or even belts – just adding that one piece can take a look from basic to bold and beautiful. Keep a piece of jewelry in your bag with you at all times – then you are always ready for a last-minute get-together.
The most important thing to remember is to have fun with fashion – style is a journey, not a race – and all you have to do is play!
Enjoy your summers and I’ll see you on July 29th and 30th when we are back with our latest must haves from CURATIONS!
