Style inspiration brought to you by resident stylist Julie Dickson
Wondering what wardrobe pieces to invest in this month? Or just in need of some outfit inspiration? Here’s the go-to picks our Stylist Jules will be wearing this Summer.
1. The “one piece” is having a style moment and if it’s good enough for Helen Mirren and Goldie Hawn then it’s good enough for us! Comfortable, flattering and on trend this boldly printed swimsuit in Summers newest “exotic “ palette is just the ticket. I love the draped front panel which disguises a tummy and the V shaped neckline which is super flattering for big boobs.
TIP: Bring your swimsuit stylishly from beach to bar by slipping on a pair of wide leg crinkle trousers. Just pick out a colour in the print to make sure the look works
2. I’m a huge fan of colour on the beach and it’s a myth that only dark colours are flattering. Not true. A bold bright colour like this coral will lift and add glow to your complexion that no amount of black will ever do. A pretty sweetheart neckline (with cup support!) is especially flattering on a bigger bust and a full body power mesh lining helps you to feel more “held in” giving a smooth silhouette.
TIP: Slip over a pretty sundress if you decide to go shopping straight from the beach… Cute sandals and a straw beach bag complete the look.
3. This pretty polka dot costume is a dream to wear…. the wide side panelling creates curves and gives the illusion of a great waist. My favourite beach cover up is a white mans shirt – I love the mix of masculine styling over a pretty swimsuit. Check out this lightweight Summer shirt and remember to go up a size for that slouchy boyfriend look.
TIP: Prolong the life of all your swimwear by rinsing out at the end of each day in fresh cold water. Never spin dry or wash at too hot a temperature. It weakens the elastane in your fabric.
