While the summer to most means bright colours, floral rompers or outfits in crochet and lace, today I went all out with a Valentino-inspired SS14 look with dark colours and folk details.
Fortunately for me, not only is the darker summer look right on-trend, it also happens to suits this week’s cooler weather!
Wearing my super luxe, sheer silk blouse with divine lace details in an almost gothic shade of purple – if you’re looking for something similar, Equipment and Topshop have a great selection of sheer shirting! I paired it with these floral cigarette pants (under £40!) and black platform sandals. The high contrast, saturated print on the trousers breaks up the outfit, while at the same time tying it all together!
I finished the look with a natural lip colour, gold jewellery and my statement piece – this embellished shoulder bag – 2 guesses where it’s from! 😉
What do you think of today’s look? Do you dare to go dark in summer?
