The experts guide to blooming chic this summer at eluroom

It's that time officially in the North Hemisphere it's summer.    What's on your agenda? The races, a garden party, perhaps a celebration like a birthday or wedding. In the UK we spends so much time in hope of those sunny days to favour these occasions. 

You wait years for the invitation and when it does does come spiral into a circle of futile outfit shopping. I have seen it first hand at the pop up shop. There is something for everyone so many pretty dresses. Rather than go for a style overhaul embrace what you love about you and what you already have in your wardrobe. We are not about to morph into Dua Lipa at the grammy's with thigh high splits and sheer body con transparency.  

You want to feel comfortable. This when you radiate joy and shock horror enjoy yourself.   Fabric needs to be breathable and cut for comfort. Think silk, embellished cotton, vicose, tencel. This is a time to embrace colour and print. An elegant shirt dress or tunic with metallic pumps and a clutch. Colour turns basic silhouttes into something striking.  Don't attempt to belt something that it not meant to be belted you will ruin the line. I personally avoid a belt at this time as it's so much cooler. You can embrace the comfort of wearing a dress. The ideal length is mid or midaxi which is slightly longer, giving the vide of a max dress without the problem of the hem dragging on damp ground. Also great to show off your favourite footwear.  

Eluroom has styles which tick the boxes.
