TOP IT ALL OFF
There’s something terribly glamorous about pairing a bathing suit with an over-sized sunhat or donning a cloche while wiling away the day. Don a hat and you'll feel like a 1940’s movie star vacationing in Cannes. There’s also something remarkably logical about it: keep your face in the in the shade so you don’t have to slather on SPF 50.
Given the fact that they’re practical and downright fabulous, there’s a surprising scarcity of eco friendly and stylish hats to choose from with the added benefit of being size adjustable. Bring back this trend with Florabella’s Lovely Cloche hat. Handcrafted from natural fibers, it has a decidedly demure edge. See hat products here
KISS: KEEP IT SIMPLE SUMMER
When it comes to summer jewelry, we’re all about pieces that will make you feel like a goddess. And this year, the goddess we’re envisioning has embraced the minimalism trend. She wears a simple dress with a single, statement-making piece. Like this repurposed leather fringe necklace by Palomino. When it comes to luxurious, sustainable fashion, less is definitely more so you might choose Italian inspired designs by B/C Designs.
