I’m so excited that summer is on it’s way… a few sunny days and I’m all smiles and sandals!! I looooove summer and can’t wait to start being able to wear dresses again (It’s still a bit too chilly for that here in Cape Town!)
Dressing in summer is so much easier thanks to dresses. They are my go-to wardrobe essential for the warmer weather. Just one item and you’re done… and it’s so easy to change the look with a few different accessories. In fact one summer dress can be styled as a different outfit every day of the week with the right accessories!
Last week I was invited to the Old Khaki spring/summer collection launch for the upcoming season.
It was a beautifully laid back range of muted colours and cool fabrics that are perfect for hot days, bright sun and balmy evenings that make up the South African summer. Take a look below at their stunning campaign shot in one of my very favourite places in Cape Town, Kalk Bay!
Taking inspiration from exotic summer holiday destinations such as Marrakesh, Capri and Zanzibar, the collection features flowing, flattering silhouettes with beautiful prints in a colour palette of spicy orange, rust and dusty rose and a splash of white, blue and light olive green.
Expect plenty of stripes, shading and a cool blue tones in beautifully comfortable fabrics such as cotton, linen, melange and viscose.
I love their relaxed selection of dresses – maxi, mini, shirt, denim, all-purpose shorts and T’s. There is also lots of that classic summer staple… denim, featuring in a variety of summery tones and textures including cropped denim shorts and chambray shirts.
This gorgeous collection is entirely wearable. I love it’s hints of femininity and classic basics that will work well across the season and even when it’s time to layer up in autumn.
The full spring/summer 2017 collection from Old Khaki will be available in stores and online on from October 2016.
